19 Value Plays at Running Back - Footballguys

The Footballguys staff finds value at the running back position

A fantasy draft is all about obtaining the most value with each selection. There is value available throughout a draft, and grabbing it is one of the most important keys to a successful fantasy team. In an attempt to point out this value, we asked our staff to look through the Top 150 and identify players that should outperform their draft position.

Kerryon Johnson, Detroit

James Brimacombe: It is hard to list Kerryon Johnson right now as a value, but that is how I feel about his talent. I'm so in on Johnson that I want to overdraft him compared to other running backs around his ADP. Rookie running backs are always hard to judge but in Johnson's case the Lions traded up from 51 to 43 overall to land Johnson and were not shy about how badly they wanted him and for me that is enough to believe that he will see a large number of touches this season. With LeGarrette Blount and Theo Riddick as the competition, the Lions will give Johnson all the touches that he can handle to start the season.
