The Most Underrated Backfield in Fantasy Football

We often look for fantasy football value from individual players. Who is primed to breakout? Who is being undervalued due to injury? But what about them teams themselves? There can also be signs of an entire backfield poised to explode, even if the individual statuses of the pieces are a little murky. To find the most undervalued backfield in fantasy, I turned to the RotoViz Screener and focused on Expected Points. Narratives tend to dominate during the season, so using EP is a good way to re-ground our expectations and get some perspective on the exact volume and value of a player, or in this case, player group. What if I told you that the backfield that had the fourth-most Expected Points in 2017 now features running backs with overall ADPs of 87th and 182nd, as well as several backs that are going undrafted? Is that a team you’d want to invest in?
