The running back prospect Sweet 16 is fun for the whole family. It should give you an idea of what the RotoViz staff thinks about a variety of RB prospects, and also the methodology some of our writers use when selecting them.
After an intrepid first round, we are now in the Elite Eight. The matchups should get even tighter, and the arguments will be even more intense. Sit back, learn some more about the 2016 RB class, and enjoy! And in case you missed the last Elite Eight matchup, check out the link below.
(3) Kenneth Dixon vs (6) Devontae Booker
Dixon managed to squeak a win out against the diminutive yet potent Tyler Ervin, and now will face the formidable Booker. The Utah alum dominated his match-up with Jonathan Williams, but Dixon is almost sure to post a tougher test. The common theme in this tournament has been love for pass-catching, and both of these players do that very well. Let’s see who will come out on top.
Anthony Amico – Devontae Booker
Matthew Freedman – Devontae Booker
Shawn Siegele – Kenneth Dixon
Charlie Klienheksel – Kenneth Dixon
Jordan Hoover – Kenneth Dixon
Scott Smith – Kenneth Dixon
Give me Dixon by a hair. With both guys being similar in production I will take the guy that I think I can get cheaper. This one really is a toss up however I like Dixon just a tad bit better.
Justin Winn – Devontae Booker
These guys are fairly similar. Both are workhorses who are fairly big and were productive receivers. But Booker is a tad bigger and handled bigger workloads. More significantly, Booker has the unknown working in his advantage. I know Dixon is an unspectacular athlete. I think Booker might actually be a good one. So give me Booker.
Tim Talmadge – Devontae Booker
Kenneth Dixon broke out earlier but Booker has been more productive since he transferred to Utah. We don’t know much about Booker as an athlete but I like his production comps a bit more.
Heith Krueger – Kenneth Dixon
Once again, it appears that Dixon will slide through in a close matchup. He has won two rounds by a total of two votes, and we will see if he can continue his run against C.J. Prosise in the Final Four. The arguments for both Dixon and Booker were somewhat similar throughout this battle, and there is even some discrepancy as to who will actually cost more. I feel as though we could do this again in a month and get completely different results.
