Fantasy Football: Analyzing the Downside for Each Relevant Rookie Running Back

There's a lot of upside in this year's running back draft class, but what about the other side of the equation?

This year's rookie running back class is good. Maybe a little overrated, but good.

That means we're bound to see some fantasy relevancy coming from the legs of a handful of backs in this class. Leonard Fournette will be an early-round fantasy football darling, Christian McCaffrey will, too, and fantasy footballers will undoubtedly be into Dalvin Cook, Joe Mixon, and plenty of others.

But, guys, it's not all butterflies and rainbows.

Each of these backs have something in their way -- even the dudes who were drafted in the top-10 do.

And knowing what obstacles each relevant rookie running back has to face this year can go a long way in helping evaluate where you should draft them in fantasy football.
