This is how I see it:

1) LT2
2) Shaun Alexander
3) Priest Holmes
4) Edgerrin James
5) Willis McGahee
6) Corey Dillon
7) Jamal Lewis
8) Ahman Green
9) Deuce McAllister
10) Dominick Davis
11) Chris Brown
12) Clinton Portis
13) Brian Westbrook
14) Kevin Jones
15) Rudi Johnson
15) Curtis Martin
16) Julius Jones
17) Tiki Barber
18) Stephen Jackson
19) Tatum Bell
20) Thomas Jones

As you can see, I'm very high on run/catch RB's like DD and Westbrook, and low on guys like JJ, Bell, and Jackson. I feel that the veterans are safer starts in a fantasy league, and deserve to be higher than them on this list.

That's an ok list through the first 10. I dont really see how you can put Brown in front of Portis, Rudi, C-Mart and Barber.

The biggest mistake in this list is Ahman Green is ranked way to low and I agree Portis should definiately be ahead of Brown.

I put brown high because I have amazign expectations of him next season. If he doesn't get hurt, I think he could rush for 1500+ yards, and be a top 5 RB.

Portis should definitely be ahead of Brown, but Ahman Green is fine where he is. Jamal is a little high as well, people keep saying he'll explode out of prison with a big year...but I'd still draft Ahman, Deuce, or DD above him.

Haven't put a ton of thought into it, but here's a ranking.

1. LT
2. Alexander
3. Priest
4. McGahee
5. Edge
6. Dillon
7. Ahman
8. Deuce
9. DD
10. Jamal
11. Portis
12. Rudi
13. Tiki
14. KJ
15. CMart

Westbrook doesn't impress me all that much for next season...and I'm not high on any Titan right now...Brown included, too many question marks, I'd feel safer with CMart.

I like your list, but if you like pass catching RB, then why is Brown so high? Someone like KJ, Portis, and Martin are pass catching RB's on teams that may not need to play from behind after the 1st quater. Brown did great last year, but has no offense or Defense.

They will play from behind, he doesn't catch the ball from the back field and as a result his numbers will suffer.

Chris Brown and K jones are not very highly rated in my book, but could replace the 15th slot on my list based on the draft or a trade or two.
1) LT2
2) Shaun Alexander
3) Priest Holmes
4) Edgerrin James
5) Willis McGahee
6) Corey Dillon
7) dominick davis
8) Ahman Green
9) Deuce McAllister
10) jamal lewis
11) clinton portis
12) Rudi Johnson
13) Tiki Barber
14) Julius Jones
15) Curtis Martin
Looks like Lav. Coles and his big toe have assured the redskins another sub-five hundred season.
