LT-shaun-edge-Willis and Priest should probably be excluded from this list of 2nd tier players.

This is not an actual 1-14 list technically it is 6-19[/b]

I agree. The only reason Holmes would not get drafted in the top 5 next year is because something comes out that the majority of FF owners really fear and injury NOT that he won't be ultra productive when he plays.

I'm really surprised at how people have forgotten Jamal Lewis. The guy only played in 12 games last year and still had 1,000 yards and 7 scores. If the Ravens can grab a veteran receiver, he won't have teams stacking up on him so much, especially with Boller coming around at the end of the year. I have him ranked as my No. 6 back.

Outside of LT, this might be the most muddled RB year as far as ranking and predictions I've ever seen.

I'll wait and see what FA and the draft turns up before I start making rank lists. Might just compound issues even more.

I also have Jamal ranked high and primed for a bounce-back season. Even if the Ravens don't make a free agency splash at wideout, I think he'll still be a strong 1,500 yard 13 touchdown canidate.

MeShawn I'm confused on if all of those are in your second tier or what, so I will put my first 4 RB tiers for 2005. These are just some quick rankings, I might forget a player or two. And yes this is for a redraft league.

Tier 1
LaDainian Tomlinson
Shaun Alexander
Priest Holmes
Willis McGahee
Edgerrin James

Tier 2
Ahman Green
Corey Dillon
Domanick Davis
Deuce McAllister
Jamal Lewis

Tier 3
Clinton Portis
Kevin Jones
Rudi Johnson
Julius Jones
Curtis Martin
Stephen Jackson
Chris Brown
Tiki Barber
Brian Westbrook

Tier 4
Warrick Dunn
Thomas Jones
Fred Taylor
Duce Staley
Travis Henry
Tatum Bell
Lee Suggs

Just some rough rankings.

Sorry for the confusion guys. I meant to say that Priest would be considered the #5 RB, and therefore not be in the 2nd tier. But maybe that's just me. Then the next 15 or so RB's are all in a mess, so that's what I consider the 2nd tier. Sorry for the confusion (Priest is excluded).
