2010 fantasy football draft guide: running back RB underrated players. Welcome to the 2010 fantasy football season! Here are my top 3 running back RB underrated players to begin the 2010 fantasy football season. Underrated player selections are based on a standard mixed NFC/AFC single season redraft fantasy football league for the 2010 season. Running back RB underrated player selections are based on players who will likely be drafted later in fantasy football drafts to begin the 2010 season than what their overall fantasy football scoring worth will warrant for the 2010 season. Running back RB underrated player selections should not be considered sleepers, however these underrated player selections are essentially players I would take a chance on and possibly even reach for or draft a round or two earlier in fantasy football drafts to begin the 2010 season.

Running Back (RB) Underrated Players
Matt Forte – Chi
After an amazing rookie season in 2008, the wheels fell off for Forte in 2009. However, Forte was not the only Chicago Bears offensive player to struggle in 2009, as Jay Cutler and Greg Olsen were also huge fantasy football disappointments last season, and the Bears wide receiving corps was virtually non existent. So with one excellent season and one so-so season on his resume, Forte at just age 24 offers a ton of upside for a huge comeback season in 2010. Commonly ranked outside of the top 25 running backs in fantasy football leagues to begin the 2010 season, I am one fantasy football manager who will gladly draft Forte mid to late in my fantasy draft and know that I have a tremendously underrated player on my team.
Ahmad Bradshaw – NYG
While teammate Brandon Jacobs seems to get all the love and attention from fantasy football managers, Bradshaw is the New York Giants running back that you will want on your fantasy football team in 2010. At just age 24 and offering excellent speed, Bradshaw is poised to take over as the Giants #1 option at running back during the 2010 season. When the dust settles, Bradshaw has a very realistic chance of being an easy top 20 and possibly even a top 15 fantasy football scoring RB for the 2010 season.
Fred Jackson – Buf
With everyone interested in rookie CJ Spiller and even the bigger named Marshawn Lynch, I will gladly take my chances on Fred Jackson as the Buffalo Bills running back. Offering outstanding pass receiving ability, Jackson is an every down running back who can contribute tremendously to fantasy football teams if given consistent playing time. Often ranked around #30 among all fantasy football running backs to begin the 2010 season, Jackson is definitely one underrated fantasy football RB that managers need to be aware of.
