Overvalued Players: Running Backs - Footballguys

Footballguys staff members discuss running backs who are overvalued

The flip side of succeeding with value players is failing with overvalued players. These are players that will not put up stats commensurate to their draft spot, and avoiding them is another of the important keys to a successful fantasy team. In an attempt to point out these players, we asked our staff to look through the Top 150 and identify players that should underperform their draft position.

Kenyan Drake, Miami

Hester: Drake ended 2017 with a surprise, but heading into this year, his prospects don't look promising. Much of his success last season came due to a lack of competition at the running back position. This year, University of Miami alum Frank Gore is coming home to play for the Dolphins. While Drake is clearly the more explosive player at this point in their careers, Gore will get enough usage to limit Drake's upside -- particularly in what should be a bad offense. Ryan Tannehill is scheduled to return, but the team's receivers are Kenny Stills (never a No. 1), DeVante Parker (still looking to justify his draft position), and Albert Wilson (new to the team and an average slot man at best). They also "boast" a rookie starter at tight end in Mike Gesicki. Bad offenses aren't fertile ground for fantasy running backs.
