Description: Lions running back Reggie Bush says the Detroit offense is similar to the Saints team he played with from 2006-10, according to a ProFootballTalk report.
Insight: Bush is an excellent pass receiver and should fit in well with a team that passed 740 times in 2012 (46.2 per game). He's also was able to stay on the field over the past two season which made him a viable fansty asset. With a current fantasyfootballcalculator.com ADP of 24.3, fantasy owners seem to like his move to Detroit. He had an ADP of 47.7 last summer.
Description: Colts coach Chuck Pagano said running back Vick Ballard was the "lead guy" in the backfield, according to Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.
Insight: With Brown hurting, Ballard rushed for 814 yards and two rushing touchdowns and caught 17 balls for 152 yards last season. We expect that if Brown is healthy he'll get a good portion of the workload, but for now Ballard is the No. 1 option.
Description: Jacksonville running back Maurice Jones-Drew says he is still on schedule for his return to the field after Lisfranc surgery, although his current ability is limited to a 30-yard run at three-quarters speed, according to a Josh Alper report.
Insight: Jones-Drew underwent foot surgery in December. If all goes well he'll be ready for Opening Day, but that's far from a sure thing at this point. MJD is capable for putting up big numbers, but only if he is healthy.
Description: Running back Felix Jones signed a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Insight: Barring an injury to starter LeSean McCoy, Jones and Bryce Brown figure to have a limited upside for the upcoming season. The only good news for Jones fans is that new coach, Chip Kelly, while playing at an up tempo, prefers to run the ball first and pass second.
Description: Dallas Cowboys rookie running back Joseph Randle will be expected to fill the Felix Jones role this season, backing up starter DeMarco Murray.
Insight: Randle will begin OTAs on a limited basis after undergoing right thumb surgery. Given Murray's inability to play 16 games in either of his first two seasons, Randle will be an important "handcuff' for fantasy owners.
Description: The 49ers fourth-round draft pick, running back Marcus Lattimore, is not likely to play at all this season.
Insight: The 49ers selected him for a few years down the road as they have plenty of running back talent on their current roster with Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and LaMichael James. Only keeper league owners should be interested in Lattimore this season.
