Risk Factor

At a minimum, three players in this round stand out as risks.

Gurley has been a hotly debated player for months. A late-season knee injury lingered into the playoffs and limited him to only 14 carries for 45 yards and two receptions for two yards in the NFC Championship Game and the Super Bowl. The Los Angeles Rams went on to match an offer sheet for Malcolm Brown and selected explosive tailback Darrell Henderson in the third round of this year's draft. It's hard to take any of these moves as endorsements of the health of Gurley's knee. 

Williams comes into this season atop the Kansas City Chiefs' depth chart after he finished the final six weeks of 2018 as RB9 following the release of Kareem Hunt. Even though Williams finds himself in one of the NFL's best offenses, he'll enter his sixth year having never handled more than 50 carries or 32 targets in a single season. Projecting him as a top-15 back means massive jumps in his career highs in both categories. 

Unlike Ezekiel Elliott, Gordon's draft stock has taken a significant hit during his holdout. Elliott's ADP has held steady at 4.2/RB4, while Gordon slipped from a first-round pick to an ADP of 21.4/RB12. If Gordon remains dug in on his demands, the Los Angeles Chargers will likely open the season without him, thus making him unavailable to fantasy owners at least for Week 1. But if he gets a new deal or misses only one game, this third-round selection will turn into a great value.

Inside the Mind

Following my WR-WR start, the third round looked like the right time to grab my first running back. Getting Freeman in this spot was ideal, as I believe he can return to the RB1 tier he approached in 2017, especially with Tevin Coleman now a member of the San Francisco 49ers. Freeman is ranked as my RB15, so while I expected to get a player in the RB2 tier after opening with two WRs, I'm happy to get a player with RB1 upside.
