How To Dominate the Running Back Position In DFS
The Running Back position has historically dominated the redraft fantasy football landscape for years. Yet, with the league going more and more pass happy by the year, league-wide rushing production has continued to gradually decline.

Therefore, we need to put ourselves in the best position possible in order to give ourselves a chance.
