Daily Fantasy Football Stock Report: Broncos and Seahawks Expected to Implement Running-Back-by-Committee System

Everyday we compile the most important fantasy football links of the day for you to stay up-to-date and ahead of your fantasy opponents… This is your number one place for beat writer blabber, injury news, transaction tracking, and fantasy analysis from the experts who taught us a thing or two.  To keep up with breaking NFL news, be sure to follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

“You need two or three guys that can carry the load. It is no longer a one-guy position,” he said. “I’m excited to have Jamaal, C.J., (Booker), even De’Angelo (Henderson) in the mix there. It’s a good group. It’s going to be competitive, and that’s the way it should be.”

Ah, the dreaded “C” word. A fantasy owners nightmare. The running-back-by-committee. We kinda assumed this was coming once Jamaal Charles was added to Denver’s stable of running backs which already included C.J. Anderson and Devontae Booker. Expect Anderson to get the nod as the early-down back, but it also wouldn’t surprise us, especially The Wolf, if Charles ends up stealing the majority of the carries in this backfield. Right now, The Wolf is much lower on Anderson than most “experts” as he currently has the oft-injured RB as his RB26. This backfield is toxic. Stay away.

There are two things that Seahawks coaches have consistently said about CJ Prosise. One, they love that he has the skill set to be a dynamic weapon in their offense. And two, he needs to prove he can stay healthy… Prosise will be featured in the passing game and be used as a change-up to Eddie Lacy’s physical style in the run game. If he can stay healthy, Prosise should have a big role in 2017.

As we saw last season, the Seattle Seahawks’ backfield was a fantasy disaster in the post-Beastmode era, and it looks like things will remain the same in 2017. The triumvirate of Eddie LacyThomas Rawls and CJ Prosise will annoy owners from day one, as all possess the talent to be lead-backs, but the three will be forced to share touches. Lacy should lead the way if he can stay healthy, but Prosise and Rawls both have the ability to catch the football and make plays at the second level. Like the Broncos situation above, this looks like a fantasy headache.

“It’s a way different offense. Personally, from my brief experience with it, I’ve had a quicker time learning it — easier time learning it,” Jared Goff said on Monday. “I don’t know whether that’s scheme or the way it’s taught or what not, but I’ve enjoyed spending time with the coaches and picking it up pretty quickly.”

This isn’t necessarily must-see fantasy football news regarding Jared Goff, but it’s more for Todd Gurley. The better Goff is at the quarterback position, the better off Gurley will be. People with big brains such as myself, thought that the Rams’ disastrous offensive talent last season would have a huge impact on Gurley, and I was correct. If Goff can make a decent sized jump in year two under new head coach/ offensive mastermind Sean McVay, Gurley could be a steal at our RB11 spot.

Doug Martin has been one of the most praised players this off-season across all of the NFL, and it looks like it’s for real since taking first team carries even though he’s going to be suspended for the first three games of the season. Right now, The Wolf has Martin ranked as his RB22, but he’s definitely on the rise. If you’re able to secure a legit RB1 and a streamer option at RB2 for the first three weeks, Martin could be a mid-round steal and a real RB2 from Week 4 and beyond. That suspension looks like it might have been a serious wake-up call for the ‘Muscle Hamster.’

Quick Slants:

  • The Jets released former second round pick WR Devin Smith, who recently re-tore his ACL
  • Martavis Bryant added 10 lbs of muscle during his suspension… while Texans WR Will Fuller is hoping to add more weight to his string bean frame.
  • Odell Beckham Jr. did not attend the start of OTAs, but he’s expected to join the team on Thursday
  • Eric Decker (hip, shoulder) participated in Jets OTAs and should be full-go for training camp
  • Beastly DL Aaron Donald is not attending Rams OTAs due to a contract dispute
  • Trevor Siemian took first team reps at Broncos OTAs
  • The Broncos are targeting training camp for Jamaal Charles’ return from his knee injury
  • NFL owners passed a couple of new rules on Tuesday:
    • Two players will be allowed to return from IR
    • Teams will now cut directly from their 90-man roster down to 53; eliminating the 75-man cutdown day
    • Overtime is down from 15 minutes to 10 minutes long
    • Group celebrations, using ball as prop after TDs, going to ground and snow angels are now allowed
