As football season inches closer, it means that it’s time to take fantasy football draft prepration to the next level. You know all of the popular names. Now it’s time to get acquianted with some newer faces that could be sneaky late-round fliers for your team.
Below is the 12-team standard scoring ADP for two rookie running backs that are climbing up the draft board: CJ Prosise and Kenneth Dixon. The data was taken from thousands of free mock drafts from the past 30 days.
CJ Prosise was a 3rd round draft pick for Seattle this year out of Notre Dame. He is a strong, shifty, explosive running back that could put up big numbers if given the opportunity.
He already has the 3rd down role locked up, and the rest of the backfield depth chart is murky due to Thomas Rawls’ ankle injury. However, Prosise himself missed most of the offseason with a hip injury as well. It’s a situation to keep on your radar this summer.
Prosise’s upside has pushed him into the 11th round and is steadily climbing.
Kenneth Dixon was a 4th round draft pick for Baltimore in the NFL draft this year. He will have to contend with Justin Forsett and Javorius Allen, but Forsett is now 30 and Allen was not particularly impressive last season. Dixon has already drawn comparisons to David Johnson. He may not start the season hot, but he has the potential to put up big numbers if his talent is given an opportunity to shine.
His 12th round ADP makes him a fun sleeper pick now. His draft stock is rising quickly though.
These two rookie running backs have both been quickly climbing up the draft boards in the past week. Now is the time to start doing free mock drafts to get to know these guys and where they are being drafted.
