1. Jeremy Hill, running back

ADP: 13.25 (Early second round)

NFL Fantasy Positional ranking: 9th of running backs

Earliest he should be drafted: 7th overall

Jeremy Hill is now the Bengals’ number one running back; he should not only lead the team in carries but should also be among the league leaders in carries. In 2014, Hill ran for 1,124 yards, recorded 215 receiving yards and scored nine touchdowns, despite not earning the starting job until Week 9.

Since Hill took over as the Bengals’ lead back, he was actually the best running back in football, rushing for 929 yards and six touchdowns over his final nine games, best in the league. Hill recorded five 100+ yard rushing games in his nine 2014 starts and averaged over 100 yards per start in 2014. That being said, it’s not too far off to question whether Jeremy Hill can become the NFL’s leading rusher.

Jeremy Hill should be the best Bengal in fantasy football, with the potential to finish as the top overall running back if he can prove to be as consistent and explosive of a player as he was in 2014.

Jeremy Hill loves making opposing fans angry, like the Browns fans pictured above; be sure to pick him up on your team so you can laugh at opposing fantasy owners as he tears apart the opposition, not only helping the Bengals win but also helping your fantasy team win.
