The rankings below are based on full-PPR scoring, and will be updated regularly throughout spring and summer. They won't necessarily align with the RotoWire cheatsheets or projections, though I did use those tools as a guide to get started.
(Rankings updated September 2)
These guys play on all three downs and have proven themselves efficient as both ballcarriers and pass catchers. They also have lousy backups, so any loss of carries figures to be limited to garbage time or the need for an occasional breather.
4. Alvin Kamara
Zeke has a talented backup looking over his shoulder, but he also has the security of playing in a top-10 offense, which means the fifth-year pro can afford to lose a few touches from his career average of 23.4 per game (22.2 last season). Kamara over teammate Michael Thomas is an easy choice for me at No. 4 overall, given positional scarcity and the likelihood of the former seeing positive regression in terms of both TDs per touch and yards per catch.
6. Joe Mixon
8. Kenyan Drake
10. Dalvin Cook
This is probably the lowest you'll see anyone rank Cook, who was awesome last season and decided not to hold out from training camp. I still worry that the Vikings will cut back his workload a little bit as a concession to the contract situation, but
