When was the last time the top EIGHT RBs could all be in play for the 1.03 or better, and then the 10th guy might go undrafted in some leagues?

Meaning, Saquon/Guice/Michel/Chubb/RoJo/Kerryon/Penny/Freeman are all worthy of a top-1st round pick, Ballage is probably close to the consensus #9, and then after that it's a freaking crapshoot. Hines is a ST guy, I really don't see him running mulch. MAYBE he's Duke Johnson lite. Wilkins could be ok but he's a mid day-3 guy. Scarborough should get drafted in late rounds by the Zeke owner but that's it. Same thing with Kelly & Edmunds, for Gurley & DJ owners I suppose. Walton? Yucky situation there.
TEAM A - 12 teams (19 R/U, 18 Champ, 17 R/U)
BREES, Jimmy G, Haskins, Lock, Keenum

KITTLE, Waller, Irv, Herndon, J Graham, Eifert

Not listing my IDP, but they matter as much as offense in this league

TEAM B - 32 teams, double copy - TEs get slight bump in scoring (1st year league, tanking this year to build through 2020 draft)
DARNOLD, Brissett, Rosen, Tyrod
SAQUON/MIXON, Hines, Gallman, L Miller
NUK/EVANS/OBJ/K ALLEN/HOLLYWOOD, Edelman, R Anderson, A Tate, Coutee, G Ward
KITTLE, Ian Thomas, James O

Danielle Hunter and some maybes for my IDP squad.

Agree with Lukky, I don't want any #10 or below. So, if you want an RB this draft, get a first round pick!

I think you’re underestimating Hines. I don’t expect a big workload but he has shown the ability to run inside with good yards after contact. I think he will be utilized a lot in the passing game with some carries mixed in. Could see a role similar to Chris Thompson or Kamara last year.
