I know buddy, but very few have that IT guy. Most scouts love Jacobs, I like him, but I'm more so thinking Miles Sanders will emerge from all here as the top back, followed by Montgomery. My sleeper, Ty Johnson, will likely go the Phil Lindsay route, so if you play Fantasy FB, stash him if he makes a team. 200-plus pounds, sub 4.4 speed & 39.51 yards per TD (17) run. Also has a pair of 100-Yd Td runs on KOs.
Thanks for the heads up on Ty Johnson. Iíll take all the help I can get in the ultra competitive work fantasy football league I am in.
Johnson has appeared in 46 games at Maryland, starting 28 of his appearances. He generated 2,635 yards with seventeen touchdowns on 348 carries, averages of 7.57 yards per attempt and 57.28 yards per game (75.16 yard-average as a starter). He caught 29 passes for 318 yards (10.97 ypc) and two scores, tallying 126 points in four seasons.
The senior returned 48 kickoffs for 1,194 yards (24.88 avg) and two touchdowns, adding 49 yards on four punt returns (12.25 avg). For the special team coverage units, he registered six tackles (3 solos) that included two stops for losses totaling nine yards, as he also blocked one kick.
