2018 RB Rankings and Comps: Big Name Red Flags

Using player comparisons and scores from the RB Prospect Lab, we locate the stars, sleepers, red flags, and long shots from the lauded 2018 running back class. Part 1 looked at the potential stars. Part 2 examined the sleepers and undervalued runners. Today we peruse the red flags, RBs with scores and comps that do not fit with their expected draft slots. The No. 3, No. 4, and No. 5 backs in the final RotoViz Scouting Index all fit this category. In the opening salvo I detailed why I like to look at RBs from a variety of evidence-based angles to find value and avoid traps. Specifically, it’s helpful to employ scores and comps to fully understand the intersection of age, size, athleticism, and production.
