1. Adrian Peterson, Min - The modern day version of superman plays RB for the Vikings. Peterson’s historic season coming off major knee surgery means he’s once again the top running back in fantasy football, as well as the top pick overall.
2. Arian Foster, Hou – Not too far behind is Foster. The Texans have a big O-Line and Foster excels in this system. He’ll be the 2nd RB taken off the board.
3. Marshawn Lynch, Sea – The Seahawks feature a legitimate passing game and massive O-Line, but remain a power running team first. Lynch is poised for a big season and could top 15 TDs.
4. Jamaal Charles, KC -Andy Reid will maximize Charles’ value in this system, as both runner and receiver. The Chiefs are coming off a horrible season but Charles will thrive and post top fantasy numbers.
5. LeSean McCoy, Phi – Injuries and ineptitude on his teammates part doomed McCoy a year ago. Chip Kelly will feature McCoy who will be one of the lone bright spots in Philly this season.
6. Ray Rice, Bal – His overall stock is down due to the losses outside (Boldin and Pitta), but he’s still a dependable No. 1.
7. Doug Martin, TB – The rookie sensation took the league by storm and will be high on fantasy draft boards once again. However, buyer beware. The Bucs were playing a last place schedule and the going will get tougher this year.
8. Trent Richardson, Cle - Richardson could easily end up a top 5 fantasy football runner this year. His supporting cast is improving and the Browns are on the upswing.
9. CJ Spiller, Buf – Can you imagine what type of numbers Spiller would put up playing behind a good O-Line and with a quality QB? Well, he still doesn’t either, but he’s a home run threat on every play.
10. Alfred Morris, Was – Morris is at risk to take a step back, but Shanahan’s run system always seems to work well. Even with a slight decline in numbers Morris will be a worthy No. 1 back for your fantasy squad.
