18 Running Backs Who Changed My Mind

A look at the running back situations I see differently after training camps than I did at the start of the summer

It’s hard to believe we’re a week away from the NFL regular season. After spending more than four months focusing on every bit of minutiae, every tidbit, every coach’s quote, and adjusting our rankings and projections, accordingly, a lot can change from our original expectations. Here’s a quick look at some of the most significant changes from my initial thoughts back in early May.

On Second Thought…


J.K. Dobbins (BAL) will be the bell cow by November

No disrespect to Mark Ingram II, but the Ravens are in the championship window and won’t hesitate to replace a very good running back with a great one. Dobbins looked the part from the first snaps of camp, and Ingram is too good of a teammate to not step aside for a better player.

Zack Moss (BUF) will significantly outperform Devin Singletary

I was higher on Moss than most at the start of the summer, but even I couldn’t have imagined Singletary fumbling his way from the lead role to a committee timeshare and now, possibly, to a backup role. Moss isn’t an All-Pro talent, but he’s a fit in the Bills system and will gobble up red-zone touchdowns.
