Several backfield situations clearing up as regular season arrives

The value of running backs did lose some of its steam last season, but it remains the most important position in fantasy football. That will be evident in the first two rounds of drafts, which will be littered with superstar runners like LaDainian Tomlinson, Adrian Peterson, Brian Westbrook, Steven Jackson and Joseph Addai.
