The Big 4: McCaffrey, Cook, Kamara & Henry

Ultimately, only a select few running backs receive a three-down workload, and they are immediately thrust to the top of round 1. If lucky enough to land one of the top picks, Christian Mccaffrey, Dalvin Cook, Alvin Kamara and Derrick Henry all are difference makers at the position. Behind the top four backs, strategy gets interesting. 

Draft A Featured Back Before Round 4

In general leaving the top three rounds with at least one feature back should be a priority. Because of the depth at the wide receiver position, viable pass catchers can be secured in the middle rounds with ease. Unlike receiver, the running back position drops off rapidly in the third or fourth round depending on the individual league.

I'm a wannabe athlete whose athletic career ended after a long tenure riding the bench through JV baseball. The fantasy sports and sports betting degen side of me blossomed at age 12 when I found fantasy baseball and football, and led to a 12-year submergence into the poker scene -- I started playing "secret" cash games in my parents' basements by age 14. Luckily, I've finally found what I love to do -- write about "fake sports," which my girlfriend refers to it as, though it only took me until age 30. If you decide you like the words I write and follow me on Twitter (@nd_joyce), I apologize in advance for the copious amounts of dog photos you will see.
