Targeting Late Round Running Backs

New England Patriots RB Mike Gillislee is a hot topic on The Fantasy Authority Podcast Episode 92: Targeting Late Round Running Backs

The Fantasy Authority Fantasy Football Podcast Ep. 92, July 13, 2017.

Late round running backs are the bread and butter of any fantasy football draft. It may just be July, but Kevin Steele (@fantasywrath13), Ben Cummins (@BenCumminsFF), Ryan Williams (@RyanAlexander_W) and Anthony Pinzone (@the1andonlypz) are locked and loaded with their early RB rankings and they’re itching to break them down! In this episode the boys are bringing the fire with another round of runningback battles! Then they clear up some of the most crowded backfield situations in fantasy, before finally getting into a lightning round of sleepers, over-valued and under-valued.
