With the NFL combine now behind us and the draft less than two months away, it seems like a good time to look at the fantasy impact of incoming rookies for the 2018 season.

We don't yet know which teams these first-year players will take snaps for, so we can't lump them in with the veterans for ranking purposes right now. However, to help you begin to scout the top incoming talent, I've ranked the prospects based on my observations from their college careers and the scouting combine.

Here's a look at the best fantasy-relevant running back talent in the 2018 NFL draft pool.

Note: Each player's overall rank among rookies appears before his name.
