6 Overvalued Running Backs for 2021 (Potential Busts)

Not every selection you make in a fantasy football draft is going to be a league winner and not every player you reach for while ignoring value is going to sink your season, either. In spite of that, you don’t want to leave too much said value on the table as you head through your draft, and I have picked out some names who I believe are going too early in drafts, or simply have characteristics of running backs who are unlikely to pay huge dividends by season’s end.


More Overvalued Players: QB | WR | TE


Maybe the player is set to regress closer to the mean, maybe they don’t have a firm enough grasp on the touch-pie of their team, or, maybe I just don’t believe they’re very good at football. These are 2021’s most overvalued running backs.
