2021 Fantasy Football Value Running Backs (Aug. 31):
This is a list of my favorite 2021 fantasy football value running backs. These are fantasy players who aren't quite sleepers - i.e. they're being drafted in Rounds 5-9 instead of the final few rounds - but they're going way later than they should in fantasy football drafts. The Average Draft Position (ADP) is found on FantasyFootballCalculator.com.

- Javonte Williams, RB, Broncos. ADP: 5.04.
Javonte Williams is being chosen too late, given that there's a good chance he'll be the starting running back in Denver. For a while, he was actually being picked a bit later than Melvin Gordon, which made absolutely no sense. Williams didn't play in the preseason finale, signifying that he has the starting role.
- Damien Harris, RB, Patriots. ADP: 5.09.
Trusting a Bill Belichick running back is often a poor proposition, but it seems as though Damien Harris has a stranglehold on the starting job. Things can change quickly with Belichick calling the shots, but Harris appears to be nice value toward the end of the fifth frame.
- Raheem Mostert, RB, 49ers. ADP: 5.05.
Many have soured on Raheem Mostert. I can understand the bear case - he's a big injury risk - but he's the unquestioned starter right now, and he'll have better run blocking in front of him this year.
- A.J. Dillon, RB, Packers. ADP: 7.06.
I am considering A.J. Dillon to be a great value pick because the Packers have retained Aaron Rodgers. Green Bay has big plans for its former second-round pick, and Dillon will score a ton of touchdowns with Rodgers back under center.
- Devin Singletary, RB, Bills. ADP: 8.04.
Devin Singletary had a solid rookie year, but struggled in 2020. Thus far in the preseason, he looks like the running back we saw two seasons ago. There's a chance Singletary just had an off year and will perform well in 2021. I'm interested in him in the eighth round.
- Chase Edmonds, RB, Cardinals. ADP: 6.04.
Chase Edmonds is a starting running back in a great offense, and yet he's being chosen in the middle of the sixth round. Kliff Kingsbury has talked up Edmonds, making him a nice value at this spot.
