Heard of a guy named Manning? I think this has proven that RBs are very unreliable and can have much more value drafting next years Tikis and C-Marts in much later rounds. Manning should go number 1 in every league next year....and in my league we start 2 QBs so his stock is crazy high in that league.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!

Too many RBs. Realistically, people are just gonna pick Manning, C-pepp, Moss, Owens, and some of the top names early next year because of the incredible season that they're having. This is great for experienced FF players since some of the top, underperforming stud RBs will fall a couple of rounds next year.
2002 Manning was 3rd
2003 Manning was 1st
2004 Manning will be 1st and DOUBLE ANY RB
I'll explain this again. People pick RBs because they are usually reliable AND the drop off from an elite RB and a 2nd tier RB is fairly large. But this is exactly the case with Manning. He is so far beyond the 2nd tier QBs, along with the fact he never misses a game, along with the fact he's the highest FF scocer year in and year out. He's the logical choice.
Now Holmes was the ONLY rb who is even close to Manning the last few years. Holmes is now 32, Holmes will miss a good chunk of this year out hurt. RBs usually go downhill after 30. I can't see drafting Holmes #1. When you get 1st overall, you have to make a safe bet. If you mess up #1, then you're basically drafting from the 3rd round on. (last pick of 2nd round) So unless you're a WW master, you need a solid, elite player at #1. You can't go wrong with Manning. Just look at the stats. So you draft Holmes 1st, then your QB is who? Bulger? Brooks? You can get great RBs early 3rd round. Staley might fall, Henry with a new team, Dunn, Jackson taking over for Faulk, Thomas Jones, Westbrook, Rudi, Taylor, Pittman. You'll be able to get 2 of those. If you figure Mcnabb, Cpepp, Owens, Moss all get taken in the 1st/2nd by people chasing pts, you'll get 2 solid RBs w/ the 20th and 21st picks.
Anyway, with Holmes hurting and old, there's only one super stud left in the nfl, and it's Manning. LT is a distant 3rd, but even in his BEST year, Holmes was barely ahead of manning. With inuries and age, I'm not sure how you can risk your season on Holmes #1.
Lastly with the mounting injuries, it's crazy but QBs are lasting longer then RBs. With the Indy line, how fast he gets the ball out, he rarely gets sacked, very few ints, very few fumbles, bottom line is Manning is the highest pointer getting in FF, and the safest bet out there.
