Draft Strategy

Why 2016 Will Be the Year of the Running Back

Here at RotoViz, we are not typically fans of running backs. Sure, maybe we like a runner or two, but overall, we have been telling you to skip on the RBs, and draft wide receivers. And for good reason, as the production we have seen from RBs has come down dramatically since even five years ago. Last year, the RB position went from bad to off of a cliff. Consider that in 2015, just one RB had more than 300 carries, and only five eclipsed 250. Here is how that has compared to previous seasons: 2014: Two RBs over 300 carries, eight over 250 2013: Two RBs over 300 carries, 11 over 250 2012: Five RBs over 300 carries, 14 over 250 The RB position has been in swift decline, and people are starting to take notice. I’m here to tell you that the RB position will make a comeback in 2016. You are going to want RBs early, a lot of them. In fact, I’m ready to call 2016 The Year of the RB.
