My rankings are
Tomlinson was hurt with rib problems since Week 13; you can't just assume he's going to "choke" in the last weeks of the year every time it comes around.
Let's look at what he did in Weeks 15 and 16 last year, shall we?
'04 Week 15 - 26 rush, 111 yards, 2 TD; 1 rec, -5 yds
'04 Week 16 - 21 rush, 81 yards, 1 TD; 5 rec, 95 yds, 1 TD
How's that for getting it done in the fantasy playoffs?
Do people really have that limited of a memory when it comes to players? We're talking about the guy who tied the NFL record for most weeks in a row with a TD (something like 18 straight games). He is a threat both in the run and pass game, and apparently now he even likes to throw TD's. He's probably the most physically talented RB in the league also. As long as he's healthy, he's going to put up numbers dang near every week.
The only reason I (tentatively) put Alexander ahead of Tomlinson on my board was because the teams in the NFC West are much weaker, the Seattle line is unbelieveable, and Alexander seems to be the god of 1 yard TD's and should be good for 18-25 TD again next year. I can't see them doing much worse next year unless there is a major injury.
