The guys at The Fantasy Takeaway take rookie running backs pretty seriously. Every year it seems there's at least one guy that breaks out and wins thousands of leagues. In 2016 it was Jordan Howard. In 2017 it was Kareem Hunt and Alvin Kamara. Murphy, Chris, and Joe have been burning the midnight oil for weeks now looking for that guy who will find his name on ESPN's Most Owned Player on Championship Teams article next January.
This episode isn't for the guys who are already household names. The guys will bring you their take on Saquon Barkley, Sony Michel, and the rest of those guys next week. This week they'll be talking about lesser-known prospects like Rashaad Penny, John Kelly, and Kalen Ballage.
But first, it's the usual News & Notes along with the return of Fact or Fiction. Make sure you stay tuned all offseason for all the draft, free agency, OTA, and training camp coverage that will give you a leg up on the rest of your league.
