Two guys that I am not very high on are Leonard Fournette and Saquon Barkley. Fournette always seems to have a nagging injury or two, and doesn’t seem to be the most solid guy in the locker room either.

I think Barkley will be good, but not worthy a top 10 fantasy pick. The Giants are going to the throw the ball a lot. Yes, Saquon will catch some passes from Eli, but I just don’t see them consistently getting him 20+ touches every game. He is a rookie that they just inked to a massive, long-term deal. They are not going to overload this guy in his rookie season. New York also brought in veteran Jonathan Stewart who will be due 10 or so carries a game, along with the bulk of the goal-line work. Don’t get overly optimistic and take Saquon in the top 10

The backfield in New England intrigues me, but also scares me a little at the same time. I think Jeremy Hill could potentially have a major bounce-back year and resuscitate his career. I also think Jordan Howard in Chicago will have a rather monstrous, bounce-back year.

Some sleepers that I like are D’Onta Foreman, Marlon Mack, Chris Carson, and Kalen Ballage. I think each of them are capable of becoming the lead back on their team and having solid fantasy value.
