Duke Johnson (ADP 11.06)
Once you get to round 11, the RBs you are drafting are mainly for depth and upside, and Duke Johnson is the perfect player for that. Duke Johnson provides a unordinary high floor, for an upside pick. Regardless of what happens, Johnson will see a high volume of receptions in the passing game but where I really like him is his upside. Unlike most satellite backs like Theo Riddick and Danny Woodhead, Johnson is an above average runner, the all time leading rusher at the University of Miami. If something happens to Crowell, whether it is injury or poor performance, Duke Johnson can slide into the starting role and be a borderline RB1. Duke Johnson makes for a great pick in fantasy drafts this season.
Mark Ingram (ADP 5.09)
Now that everyone is over-reacting to the Adrian Peterson signing, Mark Ingram is slipping down draft boards, which is awesome. In a time share with Tim Hightower last season, Ingram still finished as an RB1 in PPR leagues. Look for Peterson to see some work but don’t expect much regression from Mark Ingram, who is the better back. Look for Ingram to once again finish as a borderline RB1, which is great value for an RB you can draft in the 5th round.
Up next, the WRs…
