4. Lance Dunbar
Just like Case Keenum, the Los Angeles Rams letting Benny Cunningham explore free agency seemed like the obvious choice for the team to see what other options were out there at running back. Obviously, Todd Gurley is going to handle the responsibilities of the No. 1 running back, but the Rams were still in need of help at the position, which is where Lance Dunbar comes into play.
Even though his rushing numbers don’t seem to be as effective as some of the other running backs in the league, Dunbar could turn out to be a solid third-down back for Los Angeles to help take some of the pressure off Jared Goff on offense. Dunbar may be listed as a running back, but as his career with the Dallas Cowboys showed, the argument can be made he’s more dangerous with his receiving skills.
Then again, the real question for the Rams will be whether Dunbar can return to his dominant form after an off year in 2016 in which he struggled to find time on the field thanks to a crowded backfield with Ezekiel Elliott and Alfred Morris. Not to mention, Los Angeles deserves credit for only giving Dunbar a one-year deal to prove himself since there still seems to be some concern over that devastating knee injury suffered at the beginning of the 2015 season.
