Shawn Siegele looks at a young back who appears ready to make the leap to stardom, perhaps even infringing upon that rarefied air that’s usually saved for discussing Jamaal Charles.
There’s never been a better season for buying superstar RBs at reasonable prices, and that includes the next wave of backs floundering in what used to be the Dead Zone. We’re only getting eight RBs in the first two rounds of early FFPC redraft leagues, and that’s in a contest with a lineup format that’s more favorable to RBs than most.
Instead of getting swamped by RBs in projected points, we see the RBs holding their own or even providing a small advantage. The Win the Flex tool shows us implied points by ADP in FFPC best ball leagues.
As a result, your flexibility increases and you can start to feel a little giddy about the camp progress for starting RBs. We can suddenly buy compelling RB profiles at prices that don’t vastly overstate their impact in fantasy. It’s a great time to be alive.
Earlier this week, we discussed the crazy camp reports for a back who looks like the Next Tony Pollard. Today, we’re going to dive into a summer faller who offers echoes of the incomparable Jamaal Charles.
