RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Dunbar flashed some legitimate potential last year, averaging 5.0 YPC (albeit in a very small sample), but ended up missing the season's last four games due to a torn PCL in his knee that required surgery. Fully recovered, he's slated to serve as DeMarco Murray's backup, but durability questions are haunting Dunbar already, as he's already suffered a hamstring injury and two knee ailments in his two NFL seasons. When healthy, the undersized Dunbar possesses game-changing speed, and Murray himself certainly isn't immune to injury, so he should see some playmaking opportunities this season.

2013

Dunbar saw limited action in 2012, rushing for 75 yards on 21 carries, and he'll compete for the number three running back role behind DeMarco Murray and fifth round pick Joseph Randle.

2012

Depth RB could see more action than expected given the injury-prone nature of the players ahead of him.
