2022 Rookie Running Back Class: Dynasty Fantasy Football Post-Draft Grades

Mike Havens

That was not an exciting NFL Draft for running backs. We didn’t see a single back go off the board until day two, and hardly any running backs were taken before day three, but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t value to be had. Some of the landing spots are fantastic, and I’m here to break down the post-draft ranks to help you plan for your rookie drafts.

This is the final part of a multi-part series. The rest of the series can be found here. In this article, I will give you a pre and post-draft rank, followed by a short blurb about each player. Good luck!

Grading System:

  • A = Elite / Early to middle first-round pick
  • B = NFL starter potential / Late first or early to middle second-round pick
  • C = RBBC or COP Back at best / Middle or late second to third-round pick
    D = Lifetime backup or goal-line back / Late third or fourth-round pick
  • F = Bust / Draft with extreme caution

Breece Hall, RB NYJ

Pre-Draft Grade: A+
Post-Draft Grade: A

The landing spot is not pleasant based on history, so I bumped him down a tad. Name the last offensive players from the Jets who you were excited to own. That’s hard to do, but perhaps Hall can change that since I view him as team-proof. I also like the current coaching staff and the direction the Jets are headed, so maybe there’s something to be positive about in New York. Maybe.

Kenneth Walker III, RB SEA

Pre-Draft Grade: A-
Post-Draft Grade: A

I liked Walker pre-draft, but he’s going to need a full year to develop as a well-rounded back in this league. The landing spot, however, has historically been kind to running backs. If it can turn Chris Carson into a must-own running back for several seasons in a row, imagine what it can do for this prime prospect. If anyone wanted to draft Walker over Hall, I wouldn’t scold them, but personally I like Hall better.
