Notes: Adrian Peterson will be back to scoring touchdowns for the Vikings when he takes the field September 14th against the 49ers. Shocker. Peterson only participated in one game last season, but that should only make him harder to tackle this season. Expect a fresh and healthy Peterson to take the field in 2015, and regain the title of the NFL’s best running back.

Le’Veon Bell will have a huge season for the Steelers, and even with his 2-game suspension, he is worth a top pick in this year’s draft. He was the best running back in the game last season and is just entering his 3rd NFL season.

A lot of people are sleeping on McCoy this upcoming season. McCoy struggled last season in Chip Kelly’s offense last season, but is now on a Bills team coached by Rex Ryan. The Bills have one of the best defenses in the league and Ryan will want to utilize McCoy early and often on the ground. Expect a comeback year from McCoy.

Melvin Gordon looks to shoulder the load for the Chargers next season. He is a rookie, but I think he is more than capable of handling the situation as the first team running back. He could have a huge year for the Chargers, and might be a good sleeper to grab early in the draft.

Joique Bell has been a forgotten guy over the past few years. Last year, Bell finished 14th in fantasy scoring. He is a solid back and took the job from Reggie Bush. He will be starting for the Lions and could be a solid RB 2 for your team all season.

The Falcons own Tevin Coleman makes the list at 26, and Devonta Freeman does not. If Coleman is healthy all season, I expect him to get the majority of the carries over the season. He is very explosive and should fit Kyle Shanahan’s Zone Blocking Scheme quite well.
