When should I draft Eddie Lacy? Who is the better running back and why? What running backs should I not be drafting on as my draft approaches? I am here to help answer those questions. In this article I’m going to break down a few earlier running backs and in which rounds I fill comfortable drafting them and I’ll give a brief description of the player’s situation so you can see where I stand on these players.
TIER ONE: 1st Round
TIER TWO: 2nd - 3rd Round
These RBs have the upside for 1st round picks but have an obvious downside that slides them into the 2nd round and beyond.
TIER THREE - DON'T DRAFT...KINDA
TIER FOUR - PPR Targets
These are running backs who value goes up in PPR leagues but can also be solid value picks for standard leagues.
