I concur with this post. If the reports say he is doing well and can play well I can see him top 10. But there are some many new comers and oldies that are running and juking their way into the top 10 and top 5! I think it's a hard descion. I am gunna avoid him unless it's a real steal! ;-D
Keep it lit.

how is jamal lewis not top 5?

way to skew the stats too. one of his five years he sat our with the knee injury.

every other year he had 1000 yard season. for every game start he has had, jamal lewis has averaged 100+ years (which not many RBs can say they have done over the past 5 years).

the man is averaging 1440+ yards per season (excluding the one knee injury season) right now. undeniable.

now the icing on the cake and what truly makes him a top 5 RB for this season is that he constantly faces 8-9 man fronts with regularity coupled with the worst pass attack over the past 5 years. if all this doesnt make him a top five RB, then i dont know what constitutes one...

you better not be one of those guys who thinks willis mcgahee is a top 5 RB, if you are then anything you say and your reputation is now discounted...

As a #1 RB

i expect 14-1600 yards with 13-15 TDs

thats all i care about.

He hasn't really been able to work out with the team. Hopefully those preseason games on NFL Network will let us really see the shape he is in.

I fully expect him to play up to #1 RB quality.

Even though he was hurt last year, I heard hes in great shape now, and prison hasn't affected him much. I figure hes a very solid #1 as long as he avoids injuries.

the only knock on jamal is that he doesn't work as a wr out of the backfield very much.

Only three players have averaged 100 yds per game over the last three seasons: Priest Holmes, Clinton Portis and Jamal Lewis.
Averaging 100 yds per game warrants top 5 consideration in my book. I know I'm gonna hear it because I dog Portis alot, but hey, it's about projections, not the past. Two guys on that list should end the year top five.
