2018 Fantasy Outlook
Boone was dynamite his first two years at Cincinnati, torching Bearcats opponents for 1,399 yards (6.8 YPC) and 18 touchdowns in his first 20 games. Unfortunately, his production fell off a cliff in his final two seasons, totaling just 851 yards (4.0 YPC) and six touchdowns in 19 games while struggling to stay healthy. Foot and ankle troubles plagued him consistently over that stretch. You can't just wave away durability concerns, especially when complemented by inadequate production, but Boone's trajectory reminds somewhat of Elijah McGuire's. McGuire was off to a blazing fast start at Louisiana-Lafayette before chronic foot issues weighed him down, but he had better luck with the Jets last year. Aside from his promising early-career production, Boone's strongest selling point is his athletic testing. He lit up Cincinnati's pro day with a 4.44 40-yard dash, 42-inch vertical, 139-inch broad jump, and 6.95-second three-cone, and that broad jump especially is a remarkable figure. Dalvin Cook has a long history of injury troubles and Latavius Murray isn't known for his durability, either, so keep an eye on both Boone and Roc Thomas this preseason to see if one claims that RB3 role in Minnesota.

Limited role Sunday
RBMinnesota Vikings
October 8, 2018
Boone had one carry for one yard on his only snap on offense in Sunday's win at Philadelphia.
ANALYSIS
Roc Thomas played 14 snaps on offense as the backup to Latavius Murray with Dalvin Cook out with a hamstring injury. However, it doesn't look like Boone or Thomas will have much of a role in the offense even with Cook hurt.
