Impact of NFL free agent RB signings
Here’s a look at some of the biggest moves involving running backs this offseason and how it impacts fantasy football for 2014.
Toby Gerhart – Jaguars: Gerhart enters a situation with little competition, which means he will likely be given a chance at the starting job.
Ahmad Bradshaw – Colts: Ahmad Bradshaw re-signed with the Indianapolis Colts early this offseason. This will likely be a RBBC (running back by committee) which means these guys will each diminish one another.
Rashad Jennings – Giants: Andre Brown may not be back and David Wilson is recovering from offseason neck surgery. Enter Rashad Jennings.
Ben Tate – Cleveland: Cleveland needs an every down rusher and they got one with Ben Tate.
Darren McFadden – re-signs with Oakland: He’s often injured and he often lets owners down. He should be viewed as a RB3 or RB4.
Darren Sproles traded to Philadelphia: Darren Sproles joins one of the most innovative offenses in the league. He should continue his success as a pass-catcher out of the backfield
