40) Bishop Sankey, Tennessee Titans

Bishop Sankey had a disappointing year in his rookie season but will be looking to step it up in 2015 with new quarterback, Marcus Mariota.

39) Devonta Freeman, Atlanta Falcons

Devonta Freeman is in a position battle with rookie, Tevin Coleman and at the moment has the starting job. However, Coleman finds his way up the list above Freeman as far as fantasy sports go. We will see who is the better running back in the coming weeks.

38) Charles Sims, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The starting job is wide open in Tampa Bay and Charles Sims may wind up the starter come week one. He is worthy of a pick up.

37) Doug Martin, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Doug Martin will be Sims’ counterpart in 2015 but one of these two men is worthy of a pick up. Jameis Winston will need a running back to produce and one of these men will look to do so.

36) Tre Mason, St. Louis Rams

Tre Mason saw his starting job go up in smoke after the St. Louis Rams drafted Todd Gurley in the 2015 NFL draft. But, it is unclear as to if Gurley is fully recovered so Mason will get his snaps until Gurley is healthy.

35) Shane Vereen, New York Giants

Vereen is coming over to the New York Giants with thoughts of starting for them. However, he is not the starter at the moment and will have to come off the bench in your fantasy league until further notice but is worthy of a pick up.

34) Ameer Abdullah, Detroit Lions

Ameer Abdullah finds his way onto the list as a rookie and will battle it out with a slew of running backs in Detroit. Many believe Abdullah is the future, but at the moment is not the opening day starter.

33) Ryan Matthews, Philadelphia Eagles

Ryan Matthews is coming over from the San Diego Chargers and will without a doubt not be the starter for the Eagles. That job belongs to DeMarco Murray, but Matthews will still see reps throughout the season.

32) Joseph Randle, Dallas Cowboys

The backfield is wide open in Dallas and Joseph Randle may be the guy who leads the team in rushing in 2015. He will get every opportunity to do so.

31) Darren McFadden, Dallas Cowboys

Darren McFadden is the lone veteran running back the Cowboys have, and is projected as the starter. However, McFadden battles injury almost every year and could lose his starting spot to Randle.
