As NFL training camps continue and injuries abound, Zachary Krueger takes a look at three running backs we may want to acquire in our BestBall10 drafts before draft season officially ends.

As I sit here writing this article, I am a mere handful of hours removed from adding Ryan Nall and Cordarrelle Patterson after Twitter was set aflame by a David Montgomery camp injury rumor.

The rumor, as it turns out, was true, but luckily not to the severity that many initially feared.

I have not been actively drafting Montgomery, but his injury really got me thinking; not about the Bears backfield, but the running backs I frantically added — guys I suddenly wished I had.

Note: There’s no darker place in fantasy than finding yourself suddenly longing for a Ryan Nall share. 

Surely I wasn’t the only fantasy GM frantically perusing the waiver wires when the Montgomery news broke. Nor was I the only one who for a moment had wished they had invested more in Tarik Cohen. At any point in time, we could regret the decisions we didn’t make in our fantasy drafts.

In this article, I will give you three RBs you can go after late in your drafts right now. Instead of wallowing in self-pity for not having them later; look cool, calm and collected by drafting these guys today.

ADP Data for Period August 1 – August 26

Gus Edwards, BAL – (220.4 ADP, RB85)

Gus Edwards landed on what later became the most run-heavy offense in the league when he joined the Ravens as an undrafted rookie in 2018. It then took a decimated backfield for Edwards to eventually get his turn, but he never looked back once it arrived.

During his rookie season from Weeks 11 to 17, Edwards averaged 17.4 rushes per game along with 11.7 PPR/gm and 93.4 rush yards per game — the fifth most of any RB over that span.

Take a look at Edwards’ splits over his last two seasons, and you see an RB who with a little bit of volume, could lead the league in rushing.
