FantasyPoints Graham Barfield, the mind behind Yards Created and one of the best fantasy football RB analysts, joins The Wolf to break down this impressive 2020 Rookie RB Class. We go into the short + long-term fantasy football prospects of over 12 Rookie RBs, including big guns like Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Jonathan Taylor, and JK Dobbins. Barfield also gives his top RB sleepers based on Yards Created, including Steelers’ Anthony McFarland, all while checking in on the Packers, Buccaneers, Chargers and Redskins backfields after some big draft day moves. 

Beforehand, they discuss the rise of analytics in the NFL and fantasy, and which stats matter versus what’s just noise. We end with our first No Huddle Offense of 2020, where Barfield predicts the 2020 versions of Dalvin Cook, Chris Godwin, Mark Andrews, and Lamar Jackson, along with his favorite sleepers, busts, and punishments.
