Six RBs to consider fading in drafts

Harris trades heavily during his impressive fantasy rookie campaign 171 more snapshots than the next closest RB But ranked 48th in fantasy points per chance.Coaches were already talking about reducing Harris’ workload earlier this summer, a rookie that could make it easier Jaylen Warren.

and Ben Rothlisberger No longer reliant on dumps and playing for a team with the worst offense and quarterback, Harris is unlikely to justify his lofty ADP.

With his news, Najib is now a bigger risk in the draft recovering from repeated foot injuries.

Overdrafting is a better way to describe Mixon than a true “broken,” but it’s not easy for him to keep passing the ball off the court with such a high ADP return. Mixon is a threat to score double-digit touchdowns again behind an improved Bengals offensive line (and it helps to have a QB that easily leads the league in the YPA), but Cincinnati’s Refusal to use him as team’s pass guard hurts his fantasy upside.

Dallas Cowboys: Ezekiel Elliott

Elliott was the first person to start running in decades His rushing yards per game declined for five straight seasons and have a related occupational workload (Historically, when 1,500 career sprint attempts are reached, RB starts to drop significantly). While Elliott’s underperformance last year can be partly blamed on a torn PCL, Don’t forget he’s bad forward knee injury.

While Dallas could stay stubborn and keep Zeke as its feature, it Clearly he’s not the team’s best option at this position.

Los Angeles Rams: Cam Akers

As impressive as Axe’s early recovery from a torn Achilles was last season, he also looked like a shell of his former self, while hitting just 2.6 YPCs in 67 rushing attempts in the playoffs. He finished last among 105 running backs, far exceeding expectations. While it’s entirely possible Akers will return in 2022, more explosions will be further eliminated from injuries, History suggests this may just be the new him, Unfortunately. Additionally, the Rams’ running back portfolio has not had a target share of more than 12.5 percent in any of the past three seasons, and last year a whopping 80 percent of the team’s touchdowns came from passing.

although Sean McVeigh Have usually like to use the function backthe rams have Divide the work of the starters evenly among the Akers and Darrell Henderson this summer.Henderson has durability issues, but He may also be the best running back on the team. Akers is already dealing with soft tissue injuries and has a good chance of being drafted into the top 20 borderline RBs.

Arizona Cardinals: James Connor

Connor has long history of injury And missed multiple games in each season of his five-year career.although chase edmonds left, Eno Benjamin Impressed and expected to take the pass back from Arizona (if not him, then the rookie Darrell Williams).

Connor still has decent touchdown potential, but lose reception job It will be huge for his fantasy value (he has only surpassed 755 yards once and has never reached 1,000 in his career). The capricious Connor proved to be a better fantasy option at the end of the off-season, but he’s heading into 2022 with high expectations.

Baltimore Ravens: JK Dobbins

Average RB drop in fantasy points per game Since 2009, the percentage has been about 17 percent in seasons following ACL surgery, while Dobbins not fully recovered this summer. He’s clearly the best running back in Baltimore, but he probably won’t get close to 100% until the second half of the season (if not next year) and play for a Ravens team that likes to split with running backs. He also has a quarterback capable of rushing to score and targeting his RB NFL down 12.9% since 2017.
