Fantasy Football 2024: Rookie RB NFL Draft Profiles from Proven Fantasy Expert

The 2024 rookie running back class isn’t nearly as prestigious as the wide receiver group (you can find advanced data profiles on the WR class here), but with RB being such an important position for Fantasy football, there’s a lot to consider in the ever-changing fantasy landscape after 20 running backs were selected in the 2024 NFL Draft.

The Carolina Panthers made Texas standout Jonathon Brooks the first back selected with the 14th pick in Round 2, and the second running back didn’t come off the board until the third round. Only four backs were picked before Day 3 of the NFL Draft, but several late-round running backs ended up on depth charts that gave them real opportunities to play.

Whether you’re making selections in Dynasty rookie drafts or figuring out which starting running backs to throw late-round darts at in season-long Fantasy Football drafts, there’s a lot to consider when going through these new names. Pre-evaluations of these players won’t matter if an opportunity to take the field never arises.
