8 Late Round Rookie Running Back Targets

In this episode, Matt reacts to an immediate trend emerging in fantasy football ADP and drafts. Similar to years past, there is an overinflation of tier 2 running back value. Instead of reaching for Michael Carter and Trey Sermon, Matt suggests soaking up second-round wideout value. That will result in a need to nail your late-round running back dart throws. 

Matt takes a look at what made recent UDFA and late-round NFL Draft picks like James Robinson, Austin Ekeler, and Phillip Lindsey successful. He then projects that out to find eight potential fits to be the next late-round fantasy football darling. 

He breaks down Deon Jackson, Jaret Patterson, Kylin Hill, Khalil Herbert, Javian Hawkins, Demetric Felton and more.
