Who Are The Top Running Back ADP Fallers In July?
As we enter July, that means we are one month closer to the start of the NFL season. That also means dynasty rookie drafts are ramping up. With more dynasty owners starting to evaluate their teams and decide if they are a contender or not this season, I’m going to tell you who the top running back ADP fallers are from June to July. This is based on IDPGUYS ADP.
RB Fallers In July
Jeff Wilson – San Francisco 49ers
Let’s start off with Jeff Wilson of the San Francisco 49ers. He signed a one-year contract with the 49ers this off-season. Wilson has seen his involvement in the offense increase each year that he’s been in the NFL, and this season was going to be no different. The departures of Tevin Coleman (Jets) and Jerick McKinnon (Chiefs) gave Wilson a leg up on the rookies for backup running back duties.
However, early in training camp, Wilson suffered a torn meniscus. So the earliest he can return would be in week 8, and this injury explains why Wilson’s ADP has plummeted. How the rookie running backs perform, to start the season, will determine if Wilson will have any relevance in the second half.
Tevin Coleman – New York Jets
After Tevin Coleman signed a one-year deal with the Jets, some dynasty owners saw Coleman as the Jets RB1. Because of who was already in the Jets running back room, and along with Coleman’s connection with new head coach Robert Saleh, Coleman was the early favorite to start.
Below are some of the early notes from the Jets OTAs and training camp regarding this camp battle. I have Coleman in a dynasty league. So I’m hoping he can be productive early on, and I’ll be keeping an eye on his ADP.

Mark Ingram – Houston Texans
Lastly, let’s talk about Mark Ingram. He was basically a nonfactor in Baltimore last season. This was thanks in large part to rookie running back J.K. Dobbins and the regression from quarterback Lamar Jackson. Once the off-season began, Mark Ingram signed with the Houston Texans, who have quarterback issues of their own.
The Texans also signed former Denver Bronco Phillip Lindsay and former New England Patriot Rex Burkhead. David Johnson should be the starter of this crowded Texans backfield. With a new head coach and the possibility of not having quarterback Deshaun Watson, this is a running back group I want no part of.
Because of all of these options at running back, Ingram has seen a huge dip in his ADP. Due to the Texans crowded backfield, I don’t see it getting any better.
