Draft league winners

D’André Swift (RB – DET)


Rhamond Stevenson (RB–NE)

Rhamondre Stevenson had a very successful rookie season that should not be overlooked. After completely escaping Bill Belichick’s doghouse in Week 9, Stevenson earned top marks across the board.

He was the third highest ranked running back in PFF (84.2). Stevenson also ranked 13th in rushing yards and rushing yards (1.41). For fantasy, the rookie running back was the RB25 in total runs scored, eight spots behind backfield teammate Harris.

There’s a high ceiling for Stevenson, especially if you ask former Patriots linebacker Rob Ninkovich. The ESPN analyst went so far as to say that Stevenson “…will be one of the best, if not one of the top three running backs in the league from what I’ve seen with his strength , his explosion and his ability to catch and run.”

Rachaad White (RB-TB)

RB rookie Rachaad White currently looks like Leonard Fournette’s backup. But there is one outcome where it provides a huge advantage if Lenny gets injured or returns to Fat Lenny.

White has nuances of David Johnson and Le’Veon Bell in his style of play, which has clearly not gone unnoticed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ new senior football consultant, Bruce Arians.

The Arizona State product ranked first in his category in receiving yards, No. 1 in yards per yardage (2.24) and second in receptions (43).

His 16% target share is absolutely insane for a running back at the college level, and it’s done wonders for generating his third-round draft capital.

The same sentiment can be cast for White’s 31% dominance rating and 3.33 offensive yards per snap over the past two seasons. The two would have placed in the top three of last year’s class.

His yards per snap and PFF receiving rating also rank first in the class. White’s career rating was also higher than anyone in last year’s class.

After a strong performance at Senior Bowl Week – PFF’s highest-ranked rusher (74.9) – and NFL Combine – and NFL Combine performance – 38-inch vertical jump (86th percentile ), 125-inch wide jump (87th percentile) — White has league-winning potential if he gets the chance on the Buccaneers’ offense.

Dalvin Cook (RB–MIN)

The injury bug has stifled Dalvin Cook slightly in each of the last three seasons. In that span he gutted it, however, and only missed four games while dealing with a torn labrum, dislocated shoulder, sprained groin and sprained ankle. left shoulder. Despite the injury history, Cook will “take charge” of the Vikings again in 2022. When he was on the field last year, he averaged 21.8 touches and 106.4 total yards per game in as RB11 in the Weekly Fantasy Score. It is still in the top 5-10 options and 20 touches per gaming machine this year.

Chase Edmonds (RB–MIA)


Dameon Pierce (RB–HOU)
