Description: Atlanta Falcons rookie running back Tevin Coleman (No. 73 overall pick in the third round) will get a chence to start if he can beat out Devonta Freeman.
Insight: Coleman was a very productive runner in college (Indiana), rushing for 3,219 yards and 28 touchdowns in 452 career rushes. Coleman's progress as a pass protector will likely determine whether he gets the starting gig.
Description: Falcons running back Devonta Freeman opened OTAs as the first-team running back, but he's have to beat out indiana rookie Tevin Coleman to start in Week 1.
Insight: Coach Dan Quinn confirmed the two-man battle for the top spot on the depth chart. The winner of the competition should certainly have low-end starting fantasy value, though the Falcons haven't had a 1,000-yard rusher since 2011 (Michael Turner).
Description: Broncos running backs C.J. Anderson and Montee Ball are splitting first-team reps at Denver OTAs this week according to 9 News Denver.
Insight: The Broncos new coaching staff wants to have an open competition at the position, but Anderson is still the heavy favorite to start. Owners must have whoever start in Peyton Manning's backfield, especially in Gary Kubiak's running back friendly offense.
Description: Patriots' second-year running back James White will be one of three guys seeking to take over the Shane Vereen role.
Insight: White will battle with Travaris Cadet and Dion Lewis for the Patriots' third-down role. Of course, starting any New England running back is always an "adventure." Watch this competition in preseason, but the likelihood is that only LeGarrette Blount will be fantasy worthy.
