I'm looking at Deuce at #4, McGahee at #5, Edge at #6, with Jamal, Corey and Clinton right behind them.

I like Edge in a standard scoring league, if its TD heavy I'd go towards Duece or McGahee or Lewis though. Edge gets a ton of yards and should have some wide open running lanes just like he did last year. But hes never been the same since the knee.

just kidding, seriously, tough question. i might go deuce, but honestly, just my gut says jamal. I don't think you could go wrong with either though.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.

I think I would have to take McAllister, I really expect him to have huge numbers. Then Lewis, and either McGahee or Edge.

I have the 4th position as well, and I will grab Lewis in a heartbeat. Here's why:

1. Injuries limited his abilities in 2 games.
2. Suspended for 4 games.
3. Heap (the major receiver that could take pressure off the running game) was out all year for all intents and purposes.
4. Boller's ineptness early in the season made it easy for defenses to stack the line.

This year:
1. He's healthy.
2. He has a chip on his shoulder to prove himself.
3. Heap should be healthy.
4. New receiver depth.
5. The hopeful development of Boller.
6. Favorable matchups against questionable defenses (at least it appears that way).
7. Offensive coordinator that will be less predictable, and is committed to the run (which is proven under Fassel's regime in NY).

If the passing game progresses even a little to allow some more running lanes for Lewis, he could approach the same numbers as in 2003, IMO.

Edge has too much competition in that offense, and Deuce has too many "ifs" attached to his possible success.

i personally worry about Jamals ankle injury. Sounded as though he was running with a limp a day or two ago. If not for that i would consider them equals. What does everyone else think about his injury? am i worrying over nothing?

Jamal is running with a limp still, not sure I'd put him #4.

Willis looked special. I'd take Willis.

This is an interesting question and one I've been pondering myself over the last week. It's interesting because about a month ago, the consensus pick here would be Willis McGahee. Nothing has really changed with McGahee overall (same supporting cast, no new injuries, etc.), and yet he's falling in many first round drafts. Why is this and is he becoming a solid middle to late first round value pick?

I know some are scared off by newbie QB JP Losman. However, how much worse could anyone get over Bledsoe from last year? I think that Losman should be at least able to match Bledsoe's numbers from last year, if not improve upon them. The defense is pretty solid, leading Buffalo to more run-oriented play to help control the clock. While the schedule may be a little rocky at times, McGahee seemed to handle that OK in previous seasons.

Overall, it's interesting that McGahee started falling some in lists and drafts right after Travis Henry left town for Tennessee. You would think that this only enhances McGahee's value.

Just curious on everyone's opinion on him.

For the record, I look at him, Deuce and Jamal for the 4-5-6 spots with Edge easily at No. 7.
