Running Back 1: Gio Bernard (14th RB)
Running Back 2*: Natrone Means? Just kidding… Johnny White (Not ranked)

The good news for our fantasy team? Gio Bernard is a legitimate stud at running back. Last season in 16 games, Bernard had 695 yards, five touchdowns and 4.1 yards per attempt. He is ranked very high on ESPN’s radar and is even higher among other fantasy services. At the very least, our team will have one star running back.

After that, things got a little iffy. I tried looking for A.J. Blue on the ESPN fantasy draft search tool to no avail. I typed in Natrone Means, just in case they hadn’t taken him off yet. Nope. So we are left with free agent running back Johnny White as our RB2. That’s not ideal for a winning fantasy football team, but we can make it work. Wide receiver is a little brighter…

*(Editor’s note: On Facebook, Chris MacDonald pointed out how Shaun Draughn could qualify as RB2. I will add Draughn as RB2 and thanks to Chris for pointing this out!)
