I know, I know. We’re still in June, but I can’t help starting to make my preliminary fantasy football rankings.

Care to guess who my No. 1 running back is? Here’s a hint: His name isn’t Adrian Peterson. Here’s another hint: He’s never carried the ball in the NFL. Yep, I’m going with Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys‘ first-round draft pick.

Elliott just could be the most complete running back coming out of the draft since … well… Peterson. He’ll be running behind arguably the best offensive line in football. Because of Tony Romo and Dez Bryant, defenses won’t be able to stack the line either on Elliott.

Dallas has the easiest schedule in the league, too.
He is already being drafted as the TOP PLAYER in early Fantasy Drafts.
