3 Must have running backs 2021. The Fantasy Football Counselor explains why you must draft these stud RBs on your roster this season.
Cam Akers is primed for a big season and excited to the upside with him. McVay has already stated that Akers could be an ” An every-down back”. We saw an increase in production of Cam at the end of last season and I am expecting big things and a lot of volume from him. He is going to make a good part of a robust RB strategy with his average ADP coming off in the 3rd round.
Najee Harris is an RB I am really excited about because he really has an opportunity to shine. I dive into more details about this in this video here. The Steeler wanted to make James Conner the guy and he couldn’t stay healthy. They invested a 1st round pick on Najee and he will eat this season. There is a great change that Najee Harris is going to finished top 10 in PPR fantasy points amongst RBs this season. Love the upside and the potential fantasy points that could come here.
Javonte Williams is a great sleeper that I believe will have a lot of upside this season. Drafted by the Broncos in the 2nd round, I see them using him a lot. He can take over that starting job over Melvin Gordon. Melvin has had year to wow us and we are not wowed. I am not expecting much to change and I know the Broncos are looking for a young dynamic workhorse RB. Williams could be the answer they were looking for and I can’t wait until he hit this field running.
I dive into all the detail about each running back here and all the reasons you should consider targeting them on your rosters. Remember to go robust RB and load up on this position so you have depth. There is only about 9 running backs that are primed for a full workload and you need about 3 of them on your roster as a minimum.
