Terrance West, RB, Ravens
2015 Outlook: Quality BackupLast updated on Aug-20-2015 by Shawn Childs
As a rookie in 2014, West led the Browns' RBs in carries (171), rushing yards (673), catches (11) and snaps (416). His only 100-yard rushing game came in Week 1 off the bench as he gained exactly 100 yards on 16 carries at Pittsburgh. He recorded 90 yards and a score with 21 touches in Week 2 before struggling for the next month. In his next four games, West totaled just 86 yards on 31 carries. He was productive in Week 10 and Week 17, but his production and playing time were inconsistent. On the year, West averaged only 3.9 yards per rush while fighting Isaiah Crowell for snaps in a hot-hand committee for much of the season. Terrance was this backfield's best pass blocker, so he will see the most playing time on third downs and in passing situations. I believe the Browns view him as their top RB option, and I expect him to have growth in his second season in the league. There are two keys to his value in 2015: touchdowns and receptions. The Browns completed only 32 passes to their backs last year, and West averaged only 5.8 yards per catch. His ability to pass block should help him catch at least 25 balls in 2015. I'm not convinced he'll lead the team in rushing TDs. I see West accruing about 225 touches for 900-plus yards with a half dozen scores, which makes him a high-end RB3 in PPR leagues.

|13.02||GridironExperts-Jody Smith - West is a nice cross between Duke Johnson and Isaiah Crowell. In other words, he's the most balanced of Cleveland's three-headed RB monster. (Comments Added Mon Aug 3 9:22:19 p.m. ET 2015)|
