The Bengals backfield will likely belong to Gio Bernard this season – barring injury – but Jeremy Hill has been an asset in camp and could be worth a late-round handcuff for Bernard owners.
The University of Washington RB is going early in lots of draft based on the fact that he only has to compete with Shonn Greene for the Tennessee starting job. He’s the closest thing this rookie class has to a guaranteed RB1.
The rookie has impressed in camp, and with Cam Newton working with very little in the way of targets, he’s likely to get plenty of looks on the field.
While he may have production issues because of EJ Manuel’s inconsistency, he’s definitely a good option in keeper leagues as he’s got sky-high upside.
The back has plenty of potential, but so much of his production depends on whether or not Frank Gore can keep it together for another year.
Odell Beckham Jr.
The Giants receiving corps has a Hakeem Nicks-sized hole to fill, and the talented Beckham could be a serious target for Eli on the outside. He is battling a hamstring issue, but looks on track to get some preseason play before most drafts.
Ugh, fine, we’ll talk about Johnny Football too. Manziel had an impressive debut, but it seems that Hoyer is still very much in the conversation for the Browns QB spot. But the most important aspect to either guy being successful might be the fate of Josh Gordon in 2014.
The Seminole RB has to compete with Stephen Jackson for touches, but Jackson’s fragility could cost him playing time, and Mike Smith has already showed he doesn’t really trust Jacquizz Rodgers.
The athletic tight end garnered a lot of attention pre-draft, but has had a disappointing training camp. He may be worth a look though, just based on the fact that he’ll likely be starting for Gang Green right away.
