Jamal Lewis vs. Reuben Droughns

From here on out, I'd take Droughns. He's emerged as a stud RB in that Denver RB system which seems to always have great sucess with RB's.

Check out the Great Debates for my argument for Droughns:

Beware of the "proven back" suckas. That's not what fantasy football is about. The "proven back" supporters are the same guys that told you to draft S. Davis, Rudi, Henry, D.Davis, and Dillon, while some of us were saying you might be better off taking studs at other positions in the 2nd or 3rd round and grab 2nd backs such as C. Brown, T. Jones, or Westbrook...a round or 2 later...or even Tiki?!?! who fell off the cheatsheets with TD lacking performance last year.

That said. Jamal is an elite running back who I would not hesitate to play every week. He does have a relatively more dificult schedule than Droughns who I would not hesitate to play either. But his monster games have come against weakass rush defense. But he only faces one more tough defense (SD) this year. He gets to play Oak, NO, and Miami yet (28th, 29th, and 30th against the run).

Dillon has been bad why? Hes been better than Jones, though you had to take them earlier. Oh, and Shockers, Jonathan Ogden was out for the first week versus Cleveland.

Both teams are built and planned around th RUN, but at least denver has a sem-respectable passing game that helps open up the RUN. Whereas JLEW does most of the work alone.

playoff schedule also, some teams championship is last weak of the season.
