Storylines to Watch: Third Year Second Round Running Backs 

With the off season in full effect, I’m highlighting a list of eight story lines I am watching in the off season.  One each day that draw on threads from The Analytics of Dynasty 2020 Edition.

Third Year Second Round Running Backs 

28% of running backs drafted in the second round of the NFL Draft who missed the first two years hit for a top 24 seasonal finish in their career.  The number only drops to 25% with a miss in Y3, but this places Derrius Guice (RB27 in February ADP) , Kerryon Johnson (RB23) and Ronald Jones (RB39) in worse prior history than the market appreciates.  Guice and Johnson have been hampered by injury history, with the best performance coming from Ronald Jones with an RB25 finish in 2019 and is also the cheapest.
