Lessons learned: Predicting the bargain rookie running back

Alfred Morris in 2012. Eddie Lacy in 2013. Jeremy Hill in 2014. What do all three of those running backs have in common? They were all rookies when they rushed for over 1,000 yards in surprising fashion, cementing themselves as some of the best fantasy bargains in the process.
