In 2015, the running back position cratered in fantasy football. Seemingly fell off the face of Kyrie Irving’s Earth. Devonta Freeman came from the mid-rounds to finish as the RB1 in what was dubbed the RB-Pocalypse. In 2016, it happened again… sort of. Wait, what? Early RBs won fantasy leagues last season. The top draft picks at the position were injured at one of the lowest rates imaginable. And yet, major RB injuries in 2016 have created a massive exploitable opportunity for fantasy football drafts in 2017.
