Given Todd Gurley's uncertain status late in the year, the Saints' Alvin Kamara occupies the No. 1 slot among running backs in PPR formats.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
2016
2015
2014
2013
The Vikings re-signed Line during the 2016 offseason, securing his status as the team's No. 1 fullback. He had as many receptions as rushes during the 2015 season with six apiece, including three total touchdowns. Those numbers don't figure to change much in 2016, while the 26-year-old provides superstar running back Adrian Peterson with blocking out of the backfield.
Line will try to sick on the roster as a fullback, but the Vikings have de-emphasized the position under offensive coordinator Norv Turner.
Line, an undrafted free agent from SMU, began last season as the starting fullback while Jerome Felton was out due to a suspension. He made a strong impression, but he'll have a hard time finding a significant role under new offensive coordinator Norv Turner, who hasn't used traditional fullbacks much in his career.
Line will have a tough task to make the roster at fullback with Jerome Felton entrenched as the starter at the position.
