  • 61. Kyle Juszczyk, RB, 49ers. Bye: 8.

    I've always liked Juszczyk's ability, and in this 49ers offense, I expect him to see a lot of work as a receiver out of the backfield and also lined up as a tight end.

  • 62. D'Onta Foreman, RB, Texans. Bye: 9.

    Miller will be the lead back in Houston, and Foreman has had trouble with conditioning and a run in with the police already.

  • 63. Wendell Smallwood, RB, Eagles. Bye: 4.

    The signing of LeGarrette Blount hurt Smallwood's chances for work this year, but he's still in the mix.

  • 64. Joe Williams, RB, 49ers. Bye: 8.

    Hyde is the old regime's guy, so Williams will get a shot to win work, but he will likely need a Hyde injury to be of real use in fantasy this season.

  • 65. Jalen Richard, RB, Raiders. Bye: 10.

    Richard should still see work even with Marshawn Lynch starting. I doubt the Raiders work Lynch into the ground, and Richard is great in open space.

  • 66. Chris Thompson, RB, Redskins. Bye: 9.

    Thompson is a good receiving back, but his value depends often on game script. I expect Cousins to be passing a lot this season though, and Thompson should be a useful back more often than not this year.

  • 67. Dion Lewis, RB, Patriots. Bye: 9.

    Lewis appears to be the backup to backups right now in Patriot land. He has a ton of skill, but he's buried on the depth chart and his injury history is bleak.

  • 68. Jerick McKinnon, RB, Vikings. Bye: 6.

    I still like McKinnon more than Latavius Murray, but the addition of Dalvin Cook pushes McKinnon way down the rankings.

  • 69. Devontae Booker, RB, Broncos. Bye: 11.

  • 70. Branden Oliver, RB, Chargers. Bye: 11.

  • 71. Andre Ellington, RB, Cardinals. Bye: 9.

    Ellington will need an injury to David Johnson to be useful in fantasy. Ellington would see the majority of the running back passing work if that happened though and would be a useful PPR player.

  • 72. Charles Sims, RB, Buccaneers. Bye: 6.

  • 73. Chris Ivory, RB, Jaguars. Bye: 5.

    Ivory has been Fournetted.

  • 74. Wayne Gallman, RB, Giants. Bye: 8.

    Gallman is a bit of a plodder, but if he can show anything this training camp, he could win early down work for the Giants.

  • 75. Cameron Artis-Payne, RB, Panthers. Bye: 7.
