Fantasy Tip: McCaffrey could be the next Danny Woodhead with his smaller size but agile and versatile skillset. He's an all-purpose back but will be better suited in a committee in a pass-catching role, like Woodhead. That being said, he could definitely have more value in PPR leagues.

LSU RB Leonard Fournette has officially declared for the NFL Draft Monday, Dec. 5. Two anonymous high-level evaluators told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that Fournette is better than Los Angeles Rams RB Todd Gurley. Fournette is considered by many pundits to be a top-five draft pick next year.
Fantasy Tip: As is the case with most rookies, Fournette's fantasy value will depend on who he plays for. He's the most talented running back in the 2017 draft class, so there will be plenty of hype surrounding him no matter where he lands. It would be wise, however, not to immediately crown him as another Ezekiel Elliott, however tempting it may be.
