2015 Fantasy Football: Running Back Busts

2 of 2

Joique Bell, Lions (90) – The longer Bell sits out with Achilles and knee injuries, the bigger risk he runs in losing his job to rookie RB Ameer Abdullah. Bell has been a decent back the last two seasons, but Abdullah has a mix of explosiveness and breakaway speed that Bell just can’t match. I could see Abdullah taking Bell’s starting gig early in the season and not giving it back.

Darren McFadden, Cowboys (106) – I gave up on DMC two years ago and I’m never going back. Joseph Randle is a more talented back and if he stays healthy I don’t see McFadden getting many snaps.

Doug Martin, Bucs (111) – There is some preseason buzz on Martin but I’m not sure why, he has been useless the last two seasons and until I see otherwise he won’t be on any of my fantasy rosters.

Denard Robinson, Jags (120) – The addition of rookie T.J Yeldon and a healthy Toby Gerhart makes it unlikely Robinson will get many carries this season. He’s slower than Yeldon, weaker than Gerhart and smaller than both. Robinson had a stretch of a few good games last season but couldn’t maintain it and is better suited as a third down back.
