Auction Strategy: Get 600 Running Back Touches for $50

Adrian Peterson had 388 touches last year if you combine his carries and his receptions. That’s pretty great usage to get out of one spot in your lineup and AP was so ridiculous with those touches that he returned a lot of value to fantasy owners. But Peterson is also going for $63 on average this year in auction drafts. You have to pay for all of those touches. Today I’ll look at three backs that you could pick up in an auction league for a total of $50, even though these backs combined for over 600 carries last year. Just so I don’t risk being misunderstood, I realize the reason that AP is worth $63 is because he only requires one roster spot and he allows you to optimize the points you get out of that spot. But the guys I’ll talk about today will still offer some upside even if they require three roster spots.
