15. Derrick Henry (Tennessee Titans): Henry was a force in Tennessee last season and will continue that as long as the uncertainty at the quarterback position continues. Henry is a classic old-fashioned back who is easy to fall in love with.
14. Nick Chubb (Cleveland Browns): Chubb was a workhorse in Cleveland last year despite serving in a minimal role at the start of the season. Despite the addition of Kareem Hunt, expect Chubb to continue to be the Browns’ starting back, albeit in a reduced role.
13. Leonard Fournette (Jacksonville Jaguars): Fournette’s production last year suggests he should be nowhere close to this spot, but he is still a near-generational talent with immense upside.
12. Dalvin Cook (Minnesota Vikings): Cook was fantastic last season despite having one of the league’s worse lines blocking for him. If Cook can stay healthy and the line is improved in Minnesota, I would be surprised if he didn’t reach 1,000 yards next season.
11. Phillip Lindsay (Denver Broncos): Lindsay, alongside the likes of Adam Thielen, is proof that you can find undrafted skill-position talent (he could end up being the bane of first-round running back proponents). His speed is remarkable and his talent is reminiscent to a young Terrell Davis.
