CBS Sports fantasy football analyst Jamey Eisenberg dropped by CBS Sports Radio on Tuesday to give you advice, tips, and sleepers for your upcoming fantasy drafts.

“One of my favorite rookies this year is Royce Freeman for the Broncos,” Eisenberg said on Taz & The Moose. “You heard about this explosive rookie running back class, and it’s fallen apart. Hopefully (Saquon) Barkley is okay, but he’s been hurt, (Sony) Michel has been hurt, Rashaad Penny has been hurt, and Ronald Jones stinks right now.”

Jones, a second-round pick out of USC, has carried 12 times for 11 yards this preseason.

“Royce Freeman and Kerryon Johnson – these two guys, I think, have the opportunity in their respective offenses to get a lot of work, and I think you’ll see both of them have good, if not great, seasons,” Eisenberg said. “I don’t know if they’ll have the type of production that we saw from (Kareem) Hunt and (Alvin) Kamara, but I think they are going to be starting running backs you can get in that round 4 through 6 range depending on when they go.”
