2020 Fantasy Football Value Running Backs

2020 Fantasy Football Value Running Backs (Aug. 10):

This is a list of my favorite 2020 fantasy football value running backs. These are fantasy players who aren't quite sleepers - i.e. they're not being chosen in the final few rounds - but they're going way later than they should in fantasy football drafts. The Average Draft Position (ADP) is found on FantasyFootballCalculator.com.

Fantasy Football Value Quarterbacks | Fantasy Football Value Wide Receivers

  1. Devin Singletary, RB, Bills. ADP: 3.12.
    Devin Singletary is a special player. He was my top sleeper last year, and I think he'll take a big leap forward in 2020. There's a good chance he'll finish as a top-10 running back, so it sounds great to get someone like him at the end of Round 3.

  2. Todd Gurley, RB, Falcons. ADP: 4.10.
    Todd Gurley has a huge negative stigma attached to him as a result of his arthritic knees. I was way down on him last year, but that's when he was being selected at his 1.11 ADP. He's a great bargain at 4.10. He won't handle a full workload, but he'll get key touches in Atlanta's explosive offense. He should still be in line for double-digit touchdowns.

  3. D'Andre Swift, RB, Lions. ADP: 7.01.
    Prior to Damien Williams' ridiculous opt-out decision, I was willing to draft D'Andre Swift over Clyde Edwards-Helaire. That's obviously no longer the case, as Edwards-Helaire is Kansas City's starter, but I still love Swift. I thought he was the best running back in the 2020 NFL Draft class, and I don't think he'll have much of an issue supplanting Kerryon Johnson.

  4. J.K. Dobbins, RB, Ravens. ADP: 8.03.
    J.K. Dobbins is being drafted a round too early to be in my Fantasy Football Sleepers page, but he's definitely a great value. Dobbins is very talented, so his workload should increase as the season progresses. He will be playing in a run-heavy offense, so he'll get opportunities, even when Mark Ingram is handling more touches.

  5. Ronald Jones, RB, Buccaneers. ADP: 7.06.
    Ronald Jones has been a disappointment in his first two NFL seasons, but there's a decent chance that could change in his third year. Jones has been working out like a madman amid the pandemic, drawing the praise of Tampa's coaching staff. Jones will be in position to score double-digit touchdowns as Tom Brady's running back.

  6. Kareem Hunt, RB, Browns (PPR). ADP: 5.06.
    Kareem Hunt will be a top-five running back if Nick Chubb suffers an injury. In the meantime, he'll be a solid PPR option, given that he'll catch plenty of passes on third down. He should be chosen two rounds earlier than his ADP in PPR formats.

  7. Matt Breida, RB, Dolphins. ADP: 8.11.
    Like J.K. Dobbins, Matt Breida is being drafted a round too early to be in my Fantasy Football Sleepers page. He's the most talented running back on Miami's roster, so I expect him to handle the majority of the touches. His durability is a major question mark, but he's well worth his 8.11 ADP.
