Running Back LeSean McCoy

Ranked second among running backs (behind Jamaal Charles) in FOXSports.com fantasy scoring … Led backs with 1,607 rushing yards, was seventh with 539 receiving yards, and tied for 13th with 52 receptions … McCoy will be 26 in July, and there’s no reason why he can’t have another big season -€“ even with Darren Sproles on his team … Looks like the consensus No. 2 overall fantasy pick.

Running Backs – Jamaal Charles

LeSean McCoy is pegged as my top fantasy back for 2014, yet I wouldn’t argue if a fellow owner nominated Charles for this designation. The two-time All-Pro found the end zone a league-best 19 times (12 rushing, seven from the air) and racked up 1,287 yards on the soil. Better yet, he was a beast in the receiving game, hauling in 70 balls for 693 yards.

Running Back – Adrian Peterson

Ranked eighth among running backs in FOXSports.com fantasy scoring … Peterson’s 1,266 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns were off from his usual totals, but a foot injury caused him to miss most of the last four games of the 2013 season … Turner’s offense is usually helpful for running backs, so understand that if you’re writing off Purple Jesus – or more realistically, if you’€™re knocking him down to third or fourth overall on your draftboard – he might explode (again) … Bonus: Turner told a Twin Cities radio station in February that Peterson might catch 50-60 passes this season.

Running BackMatt Forte

Forte was third in FOXSports.com standard scoring thanks to 1,933 yards from scrimmage and 12 touchdowns … Forte was even more spectacular in PPR formats, as he ranked third among backs with 74 receptions … He’s in the argument for fantasy’s top back, but will probably be third or fourth on most standard draftboards.

Wide Receiver Calvin Johnson

Still the man at WR, even if he ranked behind Josh Gordon and Demaryius Thomas in FOXSports.com fantasy scoring last season … Caught 84 passes for 1,492 yards and 12 scores with no other viable receiving threats on the roster to draw coverage away … Caught 14 passes for 329 yards (!!!) and a TD against the Cowboys in Week 8.
