July 30, 2010   ·     ·   Jump to comments

Not long ago, basic fantasy strategy started with taking the best available running backs in rounds one and two.  Yet, the rise of running back committees and pass-happy offenses has limited the number of franchise running backs, while increasing the value of quarterbacks and wide receivers.  For the running back position, this has meant two things:
