When it comes to fantasy, the running back position is a top priority. And this will be the case even more this season. The elite backs are much tougher to come by these days. You'll have to act early to get one of the top backs in this year's draft. These guys will go fast come draft day, and teams having them will have an advantage over their opponents. There just aren't that many elite backs any more, especially with more teams using a two-back approach or throwing on nearly every down.
But there are other options out there with potential after those top guys are gone. Who is the Devonta Freeman of this season? There are several players capable of having that breakout season, including Jeremy Langford, Thomas Rawls and Carlos Hyde. There is a drop off after the top guys, so finding one of these diamonds in the rough is as important as ever for fantasy teams in 2016.
