Shawn Siegele breaks down the thesis for one of his favorite undervalued RBs and explains why the early-camp star could be the 2023 Tony Pollard . . . but with even more ceiling.
Last year, we had four backs absolutely crush formats from what is traditionally the RB Dead Zone. Josh Jacobs and Miles Sanders were pure dead zoners, but two of their compatriots came from committees that would normally have pushed them much further down in price. During the final run-up to the season, Rhamondre Stevenson and Pollard screamed up draft boards before paying off those aggressive managers with excellent seasons.
I’m continuing to add Stevenson when I have picks in that flat WR zone between Tee Higgins and Deebo Samuel, but, as we say every year with rising runners, we have to locate the next guy rather than chase the climbers. This is especially true in 2023 as we battle the WR avalanche in all formats. Finding the next Stevenson or Pollard should be our top priority.
Fortunately for RotoViz drafters, such a player exists with a good price and with less competition than Stevenson or Pollard faced a year ago.
The Next Tony Pollard Is Crushing Camp and Ready to Fly
