1. Jamaal Charles, Kansas City Chiefs
Outlook: Charles is one of five running backs who projects to catch 70 or more passes in 2014. He had exactly 70 receptions a year ago, which were 18 more than LeSean McCoy. His projected 26-catch advantage in ‘14 is enough to give him a slight edge over McCoy, who ranks as the No. 1 running back in standard leagues.
Projections: 71 receptions, 1,755 total yards (569 receiving), 10 touchdowns (3 receiving), & 2 fumbles
2. LeSean McCoy, Philadelphia Eagles
Outlook: McCoy receives just a modest boost using PPR scoring. He actually had more receptions per game in ‘12 under Andy Reid than he did last year under Chip Kelly. The off-season addition of Darren Sproles has just enough of an impact to drop McCoy from No. 1 in standard leagues to No. 2 in PPR leagues.
Projections: 45 receptions, 1,747 total yards (375 receiving), 14 touchdowns (2 receiving), & 1 fumble
3. Matt Forte, Chicago Bears
Outlook: Under PPR scoring, Forte is one of three running backs that projects to score at least 300 points. Last year, Marc Trestman did an amazing job at utilizing Forte’s skills, as the Chicago running back caught a career-high 74 passes. Year two under Trestman figures to go just as smoothly.
Projections: 74 receptions, 1,714 total yards (686 receiving), 10 touchdowns (3 receiving), & 2 fumbles
4. Adrian Peterson, Minnesota Vikings
Outlook: Just twice has Peterson caught 40 or more passes in a season. As a result, under PPR scoring, there’s some risk in holding him in the same regard as Charles and McCoy.
Projections: 40 receptions, 1,861 total yards (267 receiving), 12 touchdowns (1 receiving), & 3 fumbles
5. Arian Foster, Houston Texans
Outlook: While in New England, Bill O’Brien did a nice job of involving running backs in the passing game. Foster’s 50 projected receptions may come in on the low end, given that he is Houston’s top receiving back.
Projections: 50 receptions, 1,648 total yards (445 receiving), 12 touchdowns (2 receiving), & 2 fumbles
6. DeMarco Murray, Dallas Cowboys
Outlook: Using a first-round pick on Murray is risky. He’s missed 11 games in his three-year career. His upside is high, though. If he can put together a full season, he’s a top 10 back in both standard and PPR leagues.
Projections: 45 receptions, 1,505 total yards (330 receiving), 13 touchdowns (2 receiving), & 2 fumbles
7. Eddie Lacy, Green Bay Packers
Outlook: The Packers intend to speed up their offensive pace this season, which means they won’t sub Lacy out as much. His role as a receiver out the backfield will slightly grow, as a result.
Projections: 39 receptions, 1,563 total yards (263 receiving), & 12 touchdowns
8. Marshawn Lynch, Seattle Seahawks
Outlook: Lynch’s mediocre receiving skills prevent him from cracking the top five in PPR leagues.
Projections: 27 receptions, 1,634 total yards (237 receiving), 13 touchdowns (1 receiving), & 2 fumbles
9. Shane Vereen, New England Patriots
Outlook: No running back projects to catch as many passes as Vereen does. When he’s healthy, New England uses him in a variety of ways, including at wide receiver. Lock him in as a No. 1 running if you’re playing PPR.
Projections: 76 receptions, 1,431 total yards (694 receiving), 7 touchdowns (5 receiving)
10. Le’Veon Bell, Pittsburgh Steelers
Outlook: Despite missing three games in ‘13, Bell still managed to catch 45 passes. That number will only rise, especially with Pittsburgh’s coaching staff in full support of him.
Projections: 55 receptions, 1,567 total yards (496 receiving), 8 touchdowns, & 1 fumble
1 point per reception
1 point per 10 yards receiving
1 point per 10 yards rushing
6 points per touchdown
-2 points per fumble
