3. Jeremy Hill

Although he may continue splitting carries with Giovani Bernard, Jeremy Hill proved that he was capable of finding holes and breaking off big runs, especially when they count, just ask Denver. He should be a solid option as a number two running back and, in some leagues (10 to 12 players), a number one. He ran for 1,124 yards and nine touchdowns last year. He also caught 27 passes for 217 yards, which makes a difference in PPR leagues.

2015 Draft Projection: Second to Third Round (Steal in the fourth, fifth if PPR league)

4. Tyler Eifert

Tyler Eifert missed almost all of the 2014 season with an elbow injury and torn labrum in his shoulder. He is on pace to be ready for training camp when it opens on July 31st. He is a solid top tight end as long as he can get to 100% before the season. He will be the top tight end going into 2015, as rookie Tyler Kroft looks to acclimate himself to NFL speed. Eifert could turn out to be the second or third option for Andy Dalton behind A.J. Green and Marvin Jones. He will be mush more valuable in a PPR league compared to traditional point systems.

2015 Draft Projection: Fourth to Fifth Round (Steal in seventh round)

5. Mike Nugent

Mike Nugent started 2014 slow, but as the season wore on, he became a vital piece of the Bengals’ organization. He only missed one field goal after his overtime miss against Carolina, which left the game in a tie. He made 10 field goals of 40+ yards and was 39 of 39 on extra points. He will not win games on his own, but could put you over the edge in a close matchup.

2015 Draft Projection: Eighth to Ninth Round (Steal in 12th round or later)
