Pass-catching RBs

Postby drunkenmonkey » Sun Jul 20, 2003 8:08 pm

In one of my leagues (12-team keeper -- first year), one extra point is given for every reception. This not only makes possession receivers more valuable, but also running backs who play a large part in the passing game (because six catches equal one touchdown). I've been trying to do some research on which backs are going to catch more passes this year. Any ideas? Who will be the top five to ten receiving backs in the NFL this year?
It's time to roll the dice!

Dunno if I agree totally with the order, but I think GP's got it. Maybe Canidate instead of Staley if he stays out of the doghouse....

Jamal Lewis is also a respectable receiver, and should catch around 50 passes.

Remember, when Chris Mortenson was recently asked who he thought could potentially rush for 2,000 yards this season, one of the three names he dropped was that of Lewis. Could be a great pick this season.

Shaun Alexander caught 59 balls last year. Let's not forget about him.
The facts have no meaning.

Last year, Charlie Garner had the most receptions for an RB with 91. Faulk had 80, LT2 had 79, Holmes had 70, and Barber had 69.

Yardage-wise, Garner also led the bunch, with 941 yards. Next was Holmes with 672, Barber with 597, Duce Staley with 541, and Faulk with 537. (A quick note, Duce will probably have less receptions and yards this year with the reason of Buckhalter).

Garner also had the most receiving TDs with 4. If you get rewarded for big plays, he also had the most 20+ yard receptions and the most 40+ yard receptions.

Marvin Lewis has said that he plans on using Corey Dillon in the passing game much more this year. You can find a thread in the AFC North forums. Just thought I'd throw that out there.
