Cheap Authentic Jerseys
I am aware the Bengals selected perhaps the most talented running back in the 2017 draft class in Joe Mixon.Jerseys From China.Some believe the rookie may have a chance to eventually become the team’s feature back. But I am here to remind you that Jeremy Hill is still hanging around in Cincinnati.

Murray went on to have one of the best seasons of his career, while Henry was mired in a limited role. Past seasons have also proven that far less than half of rookie running backs selected in fantasy drafts will make an immediate impact.Over the last 10 seasons, 26 rookie runners have ranked in the top 25 in fantasy points in standard scoring leagues.Cheap Football Jerseys.That’s an average of fewer than three players a year. The good news is that three years (2008, 2012, 2013) did feature four or more players who hit our mark. That showed us that while it’s rare, it is possible for several rookie backs to make an immediate fantasy impact in the same year.
