We're halfway through the 2017 fantasy football season, what better way to celebrate by talking about player you were so wrong about like Todd Gurley, DeAndre Hopkins and Leonard Fournette. We're re-doing the 2017 fantasy football draft, with all the insights taken away from the first 8 weeks of the 2017 NFL season.
There are only 4 or 5 teams in the NFL today that tote a true bell-cow in the backfield. The rest of the league deploys some sort of running back by committee, using 2, 3 and sometimes even 4 different backs throughout the course of the game. Everyone wants a 20+ touch guy occupying the RB slot in their fantasy football lineup, but it just doesn't work that way anymore. The move isn't staying away from RBBCs, you just have to target the right ones. I'm here to breakdown the murky backfield situations throughout the league by looking at the previous week's numbers to clear through the mud.
The NFL trade deadline has been absolute madness up to this point (it's only 12:43PM, deadline is at 4:00PM) seeing the Patriots former backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo moved to the 49ers, Jay Ajayi heading north on the east coast from Miami to the Philadelphia Eagles, the 6-game suspension of Ezekiel Elliott is back in affect for the 42nd time and standout LT Duane Brown has been traded from Houston to Seattle in hopes to boost one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL. Here lies some analysis on all the moves thus far.
