Sophomores Who Are In For A Productive Year

Updated on August 26, 2016

  • Todd Gurley-Gurley is looking to be drafted in the 1st round in almost all leagues this season. Last year he rushed for over 1100 yards and 10 touchdowns. With the Rams moving to Los Angeles, Gurley has to be excited for the opportunity to play in a big city with a new team. He has tons of potential and will be a top 5 running back this season. Even though he had 3 fumbles, he did only lose 1 which is a plus for him. He hauled in 21 catches which is something he can improve on this year.
  • Jameis Winston-In his 1st year in Tampa, Jameis passed for over 4000 yards to prove that he was worth the 1st overall pick in 2015. Although he managed to get 28 total touchdowns, he did have 21 turnovers. He is still a young gun and has a lot to learn, but his first year was solid enough for him to be considered as a backup in all fantasy leagues. He will be become a superstar in a couple years,
  • Thomas Rawls-He was undrafted and picked up by Seattle and still managed 5.6 yards per carry. With Marshawn Lynch gone, Rawls opportunity to shine has really opened up. He has a small frame so he will be hard to find behind the big Seattle Seahawks offensive line. He will be worth a look in the mid to late rounds in all fantasy drafts. He will serve as a solid back up on teams, but Christine Michael may be worth a hand cuff if you have the roster space.
  • Jeremy Langford--- He is now the main man in the backfield in Chicago now that Forte has left to the Jets. He proved he can run 10-15 times a game and still get you a few catches out of the backfield last year, but this year Culter will rely on him heavier. Jeremy has proved his explosiveness and ability to pound away at the defense in college at Michigan State and is ready to become an elite player. Get him before someone else realizes he is still out there.
  • David Johnson-Johnson had a total of 13 touchdowns last year, and over a combined 1000 yards. His receiving was very impressive racking up 457 yards on 36 catches, averaging almost 13 yards a catch. The Cardinals are expected to be a solid team this year and will lean on David Johnson quite a bit. He has Chris Johnson to join him in the backfield, which is a great running back to learn from. Chris Johnson had over 2000 yards in 2009, which is David Johnson continues what he has started, is something he can potentially eclipse.
  • Tyler Lockett-Tyler had an impressive 1st year with Seattle racking up 8 total touchdowns and 51 catches. This is a great start as a rookie with this improving offense with Russell Wilson at the helm. He has so many stars around him that he will continue to produce and make those big plays he is known for. I would consider him as a back up in all fantasy leagues and feel safe by assuming he will be one of the big stars in Seattle this season.
  • Ameer Abdullah-He is in a crowded backfield, but has enough talent to become a star in Detriot. With Megatron gone, and a new offense in store for the Lions, Abdullah will be leaned upon a lot which means more touches. He did average 4 yards a run and 7 a catch which are great considering he say around 10 touches a game. With some young stars behind Ameer, it should like a fire under him considering he is young himself. Lions will have a hot hand approach, which will mean whoever is hot will continuously get touches. Look for Ameer to eclipse 1000 yards and at least 50 catches.
