Running Back Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
 
Todd Gurley, RB, ATL6/27/2015 10:22:00 AM
Description: St. Louis Rams rookie running back Todd Gurley will have a checkup with Dr. James Andrews at which time we should know more about his availability for the start of the season, according to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports.
Insight: Gurley tore his ACL in November last season, so fantasy owners need all the input they can get to evaluate when he'll be ready and therefore when he should be drafted. For keeper leagues, he'll be the Rams' most talented back since Steven Jackson in his prime.
Todd Gurley, RB, ATL6/25/2015 11:10:00 AM
Description: St. Louis Rams rookie running back Todd Gurley hopes to at least partially participate in training camp, according to an nfl.com report.
Insight: Gurley tore his ACL in November last season, so fantasy owners need all the input they can get to evaluate when he'll be ready and therefore when he should be drafted. For keeper leagues, he'll be the Rams' most talented back since Steven Jackson in his prime.
Tevin Coleman, RB, ATL6/23/2015 7:52:00 PM
Description: Atlanta Falcons rookie running back Tevin Coleman will enter training camp behind Devonta Freeman for the starting running back job according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Insight: The Falcons have bragged about Freeman's passing catching and blocking ability, but the team has left the early downs open to competition. Coleman has a high ceiling, but owners will probably want to see what kind of role he has first.
Ahmad Bradshaw, RB, IND6/23/2015 2:49:00 PM
Description: Forner Colts running back Ahmad Bradshaw has yet to generate much interest for the upcoming season.
Insight: Bradshaw fractured his fibula in mid-November and recently received a one-game suspension for marijuana misdemeanor. He was a good receiving back in the games he played last season, catching 30 balls for 300 yards and six touchdowns, but he may have to wait until there are some injuries to find a place to play in 2015-16.
Doug Martin, RB, TAM6/23/2015 11:32:00 AM
Description: Buccaneers running back Doug Martin has put together a great offseason and is probably the favorite to start in Week 1, according to Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune.
Insight: Martin has never come close to matching his 2012 production (1,454 yards, 11 TDs on the ground) and the Bucs also like second-year RB Charles Sims, so this certainly isn't written in stone.
Andre Williams, RB, NYG6/23/2015 11:20:00 AM
Description: Giants running back Andre Williams may only be a handcuff value in 2015.
Insight: Despite rushing for 721 yards and seven touchdowns, a healthy Rashad Jennings gets the lion's share of the early down carries and just acquired Shane Vereen is locked in as the third-down back. That doesn't leave much for Williams unless Jennings gets injured.
Tre Mason, RB, STL6/22/2015 10:00:00 AM
Description: Rams running back Tre Mason could have more than handcuff value if Todd Gurley's rehab from ACL surgery gets delayed in any way.
Insight: Mason played very well last season, rushing for 765 yards and four touchdowns in his rookie campaign. A report by Joe Lyons in the St. Louis Dispatch has him slimmed down and faster.
C.J. Anderson, RB, DEN6/22/2015 9:21:00 AM
Description: Broncos running backs C.J. Anderson will be the "bellcow" in the Denver backfield, according to Denver Post beat writer Troy E. Renck.
Insight: He doesn't believe coach Gary Kubiak wants a shared back situation. That would mean as long as Anderson stays healthy, Montee Ball will have handcuff value only.
