Fantasy Football running backs

As the NFL teams start with their training camps, fans will also need to start getting ready to draft all of the best football players they can onto their fantasy teams. We recently provided you with a few names that could get you some good points, and now we will talk about two rookie running backs in particular.

There were a lot of great players that got picked during the 2015 Draft, but not all of them will be playing this upcoming season. So, which are these two rookie RB’s that could make a big difference? Melvin Gordon and Tevin Coleman. They each have amazing skills on the field that the coaches of the Chargers and Falcons are sure to use.

As such, we have some predictions of what they could accomplish in the League based on what they did during their time in college, as well as comparing them to other rookies in the past.
