2017 Dynasty Football Rankings

Updated
Our Dynasty rankings are predicated on a five year window. To project six seasons long term is unrealistic and not feasible considering the flux of free agency and the injury impact of the NFL. Along with different Dynasty league formatting. we factor individual talent, supporting cast, system, injury history/character concerns, and perceived value in the eyes of Dynasty players.

26. Kareem Hunt, RB, KC (R) - Age 21

Some say he will compete with Ware for the starting job, but he'll likely share the ball and work towards a 50/50 timeshare. Hunt can leap out of the building with a 36 1/2-inch vertical, best at his position, low center of gravity and can catch the ball with ease. The Chiefs liked him so much they gave up a 4th and a 7th, to nab him in the 3rd. Not a lot really, but Hunt can catch the ball and break tackles and fits in well with Spencer Ware.

28. Rob Kelley, RB, WAS - Age 24

Fat Rob" should enter the season as the starter
The Packers see Williams as a potential 3-down back whose physical frame will serve well in the cold temperatures late in the season. Good depth and can be very productive in this potent offense. Williams ran a 4.59 40 and the 20-yard shuttle in 4.53 seconds (2nd to last)

30. Jeremy Hill, RB, CIN - Age 24

Explosive. 6 of his 15 TDs went for 43 yards or more. With Gore now 34 years of age, it's time the Colts had something exciting in the backfield.

33. , ,

34. Spencer Ware, RB, KC - Age 25

35. Bilal Powell, RB, NYJ - Age 28

36. Doug Martin, RB, TB - Age 28

37. Mark Ingram, RB, NO - Age 27

38. C.J. Prosise, RB, SEA - Age 23

Is Seattle's third down back and will share duties with Eddie Lacy. Can score anytime he touches the ball.

39. Joe Williams, RB, SF (R) - Age 23

2nd fastest time at the combine for the 20 yard shuttle. He's a bullet. The Niners gave up picks 143 and 161 overall for the 121st pick to select Joe Williams from Utah. Off the field issues caused him to exit his 2016 season, but not before he amassed 1,420 yards and 10 TDs in nine games. Home run speed and an explosive gear. Wasn't asked to catch the ball and fumbled quite a bit, but definitely an intriguing player for fantasy purposes especially if Hyde continues to miss time.
Gio will likely need 2017 to completely heal after tearing his ACL in week 11 last season.

41. Jeremy McNichols, RB, TB (R) - Age 21

The Bucs see him as a back who can carry on 1st and 2nd down, but they also like his ability to catch out of the backfield. With Doug Martin not all that reliable, McNichols is somebody to watch in camp.

43. Aaron Jones, RB, GB (R) - Age 22

Starting upside, one of the best receiving backs in this class.
Only 26 years old.

45. Thomas Rawls, RB, SEA - Age 23

Broken legs (plural) spelled doom for his 2016 season and if newcomer Eddie Lacy can make weight, Rawls will be part of a 3-man committee in the backfield.

46. Eddie Lacy, RB, SEA - Age 27

174 carries 612 yards (only 3.5 ypc) but added 31 receptions for 265 and a score. He finished the season on a strong note catching a screen pass vs Oakland and taking it 43 yards to the house. Expectations have been cooled moving forward as he'll share time with CJ Anderson. The coaching changes brings a power blocking scheme which Booker played at Utah so signs are positive for his sophomore campaign.

49. Rex Burkhead, RB, NE - Age 26
