Every fantasy football campaign requires midseason adjustments, but injuries affecting elite players have made it that the best teams in many leagues this season are the ones that have successfully rebuilt a significant portion of their rosters.

This week, we will aim to assist with that process by reviewing the future prospects of three such players, starting with a running back who was selected first overall in many drafts.
