Top 15 Rb's ?

Tiki Barber had a terrible end of the year last year. The downward slide began when Eli took over. The question this year is how much does Eli improve, how much does Plaxico help keep defenses from stacking the box, and how is their Offensive line going to be?

I would bet that Tiki will start out the year like he ended last year as teams stack the box and spy him and make Eli beat them. If Eli shows he can beat teams Tiki's numbers will improve as the season gets a little older.

I am betting that Tiki is going to be taken too high in some drafts and then his owners are going to panic and trade him after the first three weeks only to see him come back and do well after game 5 or so.

So, after all of that, if he is your third RB you are happy. If he is your second RB then you are going to be nervous the first few games. If he is your number one RB you made a huge mistake and will be out buying lee press ons by game 3.

Eli took over in week 11.

In my league we get 1 point every 10 rush/rec yards and 6 points for a rush/rec TD.

Tiki's points from the time Eli took over

Week 11 - 12
Week 12 - 11
Week 13 - 3
Week 14 - 11
Week 15 - 16
Week 16 - 17

If that is terrible I will take it.

Thats solid #2 RB numbers and moderate #1 RB numbers playing with a rookie QB who was playing terrible with WR's who didn't catch a TD pass.

I think Tiki will be fine. He will be around the #10 spot this year when all is said and done for fantasy RB's. IMO.

Tiki should do fine. Not nearly as good as last year, but he should be a top 15 RB next year.
