  • Ravens fourth-round RB Allen could have role
    Ravens fourth-round RB Buck Allen could be a factor on third downs "right away."

    Advice: Allen admits he'll likely be a backup "for a while," but that doesn't mean he won't see the field behind Justin Forsett. Allen is big at 6'1/221, but is a noted pass protector with plus hands. New OC Marc Trestman loves to target his running back out of the backfield, so Allen is a name to watch in deep PPR.

  • FB Miller charged with misdemeanor vandalism
    49ers FB Bruce Miller's spousal abuse charges have been lowered to misdemeanor vandalism.

    Advice: Miller was accused of pushing his girlfriend out of a parked car and smashing her phone, but police found no evidence that his girlfriend was pushed. She denied there was any physical contact. It's unclear if Miller will face league discipline under the reduced charges. Miller has been sitting out OTAs as he awaits his fate. CSN Bay Area reports that will remain the case until he is sentenced. Rotoworld.com

  • Devonta expecting a committee approach
    Devonta Freeman is expecting the Falcons to use a multi-back system this season.

    Advice: The Falcons are a great bet to improve their run game under new OC Kyle Shanahan. The question is who will be getting the carries. Expect Freeman, third-round rookie Tevin Coleman and home-run hitter Antone Smith to all be in the mix. We'd give Coleman the edge for a majority share right now based on natural talent, but exact roles will be sorted out through competition. Rotoworld.com

  • Theo Riddick's role takes a hit
    Theo Riddick's role is expected to take a hit following the selection of second-round RB Ameer Abdullah.

    Advice: When Reggie Bush was cut, Riddick was penciled into the vital passing back role. But Abdullah at No. 54 is going to throw a wrench into those plans as he is a skilled pass catcher and more dynamic space player than Riddick. When Joique Bell and Bush were healthy last year, Riddick barely sniffed the field. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Bucs want to feature RB Charles Sims
    Pewter Report says the Bucs want to feature Charles Sims this season.

    Advice: Pewter Report is one of the best team blogs out there. "Still think Doug Martin may not play a down in Tampa this year and may get traded prior to the season," they tweeted Monday in the wake of Martin's fifth-year option getting declined. It's clear the Lovie Smith regime is understandably low on Muscle Hamster and high on its hand-picked man in Sims. But they have plenty of cap room and Sims has the look of a change-of-pace/passing-down back right now. It's a situation to track this offseason, especially with the Bucs improving their run-game outlook by adding two offensive linemen in the second round of the draft. Rotoworld.com

  • Bucs decline 2016 option on RB Doug Martin
    The Bucs did not pick up the 2016 fifth-year option on RB Doug Martin.

    Advice: It was an easy decision for the Bucs, who know there's no way Martin will be worth $5.621 million in 2016. He's sputtered the last two seasons, fighting injuries while averaging just 3.63 YPC and struggling badly in pass protection. Still, Martin will only battle Charles Sims, Bobby Rainey and Mike James for carries this year after the Bucs failed to address the position in free agency or the draft. The Muscle Hamster remains the tentative favorite for early-down work by default, even if reports continue to swirl that the team is high on Sims. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Reports of a bone-on-bone condition in his right knee sent Ajayi from a Day 2 pick to a Round 5 flier. Even if his career won't be on the long side, the Dolphins got a steal. "Obviously from a medical standpoint, we’ve done a lot of work," assistant GM Eric Stokes said. "We were very comfortable from that standpoint. It was not an issue as much. This kind of talent, to be there where he was, it was a perfect fit." Health permitting, Ajayi is a threat to Lamar Miller's 2015 workload. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The Jets are uncertain of Ridley's camp status, so it's hard to believe it didn't at least enter Maccagnan's mind. Neither the Jets nor fantasy owners can be counting on Ridley to avoid the reserve/PUP list. Ridley is five and a half months removed from going under the knife. Rotoworld.com

"But at the same token, we didn’t think at any given time that we should pass at the player that was there, even with the running backs (available)."

One of many running backs Jeff Fisher's Rams have taken early in the draft, Pead has been by far the least successful. The No. 50 overall selection of the 2012 draft has zero career touchdowns.

It's insurance behind Ellington, not someone that will threaten to steal a big chunk of work. "The nice thing David can do is he can do everything Andre does, so you don’t have to change if there was an injury," Arians said. It's a clear win for Ellington stockholders in fantasy.

Keeping two fullbacks on the roster is rarely done in today's NFL, so injury-prone Jorvorskie Lane will have to prove himself in camp if he wants to stick. Rotoworld.com

    The Cowboys didn't address running back during the draft.

    Advice: Dallas is thin there, but it may not matter. The Cowboys' offensive line dominated last season, helping DeMarco Murray rise to superstardom. Though it's unlikely Darren McFadden and Joseph Randle will approach those same heights, the Cowboys' line should open up holes for them while keeping quarterback Tony Romo on his feet.

    Advice: The Jets contacted the Rams about Stacy earlier in the day. Unhappy with his place on the Rams' depth chart after the team selected Todd Gurley, Stacy now finds himself in the exact same position in New York. Like Stacy, Chris Ivory and Stevan Ridley are limited power backs, but they are much better players. Ridley is coming off a serious knee injury, however, and the Jets' new coaching staff does not appear to favor Ivory. Stacy will compete for a role in camp. Rotoworld.com

    Packers selected Oklahoma FB Aaron Ripkowski with the No. 206 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

    Advice: Ripkowski (6'1/238) made 17 starts for the Sooners, catching eight passes in his college career and scoring three TDs on short-yardage runs as a senior. After weighing in nearly 20 pounds lighter than his college listing of 6'1/257, Ripkowski ran 4.70 with a 9-foot-5 broad jump at the OU Pro Day. Ripkowski is a traditional lead blocker with limited versatility who will likely have to gain weight to make it in the pros. The Packers will test him out as John Kuhn's heir. Rotoworld.com

    Panthers selected Auburn RB Cameron Artis-Payne with the No. 174 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

    Advice: Artis-Payne (5'10/212) spent two seasons at Auburn after transferring from JUCO, rushing for 2,218 yards and 19 TDs on 394 carries (5.63 YPC). He was the leading rusher in the SEC in 2014, but only caught 14 passes in college. Artis-Payne ran a respectable 4.53 forty at the Combine, but showed limited lower-body explosion (9'10" broad jump) and agility (7.13 20-yard shuttle). Tight hipped, already 25 years old and short on burst with little to offer in the passing game, Artis-Payne is a grinder who projects as a backup. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Described as a bone on bone situation, Ajayi's knee could be a problem long-term, but he should be fine at least through his first contract.

    Bills selected Florida State RB Karlos Williams with the No. 155 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

    Advice: Williams (6'1/230) converted from safety to tailback for his final two college seasons, tallying 1,419 yards and 22 TDs on 241 carries (5.89 YPC). He caught 37 passes. Williams posted a head-turning Speed Score at the Combine by running 4.48 at 230 pounds, adding a 9-foot-9 broad jump and 33 1/2-inch vertical. Stiff, upright, and not a smart runner between the tackles, Williams is a 22-year-old project who must be groomed at a position where NFL teams don't typically "groom." He's a flier pick and unlikely to make much early-career impact. Rotoworld.com

  • Miami takes 5th-round shot on Boise RB Ajayi
    Dolphins selected Boise State RB Jay Ajayi with the No. 149 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

    Advice: A day-two talent based on tape, measurables and stats, Ajayi plummeted due to concerns over his right knee, which NFL Network's Mike Mayock has reported is "bone on bone." Ajayi (6'0/221) turned 678 college carries into 3,796 yards (5.60 YPC) and 50 TDs, adding 73 catches. He ran 4.57 at the Combine, also impressing in the vertical (39") and broad (10'1") jumps with one of the fastest 20-yard shuttle times (4.10) by a running back. On tape, Ajayi looks like Marshawn Lynch with a compact, muscular build but isn't quite as physical. More of a loose-hipped finesse back, Ajayi is an extremely aggressive runner with light feet and an ability to change speeds on a dime. Ajayi fumbled 11 times at Boise and must tighten up his pass protection, but could eventually be a three-down back if he works out the kinks and stays healthy. He's competition for Lamar Miller, but perhaps not an immediate 2015 threat. Rotoworld.com

    Ravens selected USC RB Javorius Allen with the No. 125 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

    Advice: "Buck" Allen (6'1/221) spent a season and a half as the Trojans' lead back, gaining 2,306 yards and scoring 25 touchdowns on 417 career carries (5.53 YPC). Abnormally old for a rookie, Allen is 17 days older than Ronnie Hillman, two years older than Tre Mason, and three years older than Todd Gurley. Allen is a solid pass protector and receiver on tape, making him a good fit for new Ravens OC Marc Trestman's offense, but runs much smaller than his frame and packs very little pop. He won't be a tackle breaker in the NFL. Allen projects as a backup who might be functional as a short-term, injury-replacement starter. Rotoworld.com

  • Bears add depth behind Matt Forte in Langford
    Bears selected Michigan State RB Jeremy Langford with the No. 106 overall pick in the 2015 draft.

    Advice: Langford (6'0/208) succeeded Le'Veon Bell as the Spartans' bellcow, rushing 577 times for 2,967 yards (5.14 YPC) and 40 TDs. He added 39 receptions in his college career. Langford ran the fastest forty (4.42) among running backs at the Combine, but had pedestrian numbers in the broad jump (9'10") and three-cone drill (4.22). Langford doesn't play as fast as he timed and lacks tackle-breaking ability, which severely curtails his chances of becoming a lead NFL back. He does have soft hands and is a willing pass blocker, so perhaps Langford will carve out a career on passing downs. He'll compete with Ka'Deem Carey and Jacquizz Rodgers for reps behind contract-year workhorse Matt Forte. Rotoworld.com
