First off, Jamal is high because he is a former 2,000 yard back who, from all reports, looks incredible and has a real fire under him. He's playing in an offense that should allow for a little more breathing room with Mason and Clayton spreading it out a little bit, and Heap is also back. That should enable Lewis to get back to form. I have a hard time seeing him not approach 1,400 yards and 10+ touchdowns. Second, McGahee is a bit lower than some because of the uncertaintly of his offensive structure with Losman at QB. That and his injury risk drop him a few spots, IMO.
