Fantasy Football: Running Back Sleepers



Need a good wide receiver or quarterback late in the season? Trade away a running back and own a good chunk of the market. Most running backs usually go in rounds 1-2 or if you get lucky, round three. However, there are two other halfbacks that could be picked up in rounds 3-5.

Ezekiel Elliott has many fans drooling over him right now. He’s the number one running back prospect behind the best O-line, with a top 10 quarterback, and top 10 wide receiver. He’s in for a big season. He’s probably going with a top 10, if not a top 5, pick.

Derrick Henry however, has an interesting case. He will be battling DeMarco Murray for the starting position on the Tennessee Titans roster. Henry should be starting late in the season, if not early or for the whole season. If Henry starts by week 4, he could easily break 1,000 yards and 8 touchdowns.

Jeremy Langford is likely the day one starter for the Chicago Bears. Langford showed sparks of greatness last season. With a little added weight this season and a healthy receiving corps to open the run game. Langford could break out for a 1,200 yard season with 8-11 touchdowns.
