Does PPR shake up the top 10 RB rankings?

Postby a4ce » Thu Jun 22, 2006 1:49 pm

Let's face it, some offenses utilize the RB on a lot of pass plays while others don't. Does this affect the rankings? I still have the top three being LJ, SA, and LT2. It just doesn't matter with these three if they catch balls or not. They just get a ton o' points. But after that, in a PPR, how would you rank 'em? How high would guys like Jordan, Westy, S-Jax, and Rudi move up just to name a few? Just lookin' for opinions.

in a one year PPR league: (my opinion)

Larry Johnson
LaDainian Tomlinson
Shaun Alexander
Tiki Barber
Edgerrin James
Clinton Portis
Steven Jackson
Lamont Jordan
Rudi Johnson (not many receptions but 1500/13 always great)
Ronnie Brown
Domanick Davis
Carnell Williams

Right off the bat, I think I would rank them like this:

LJ
LT2
SA
Tiki
L-Boogie
Portis
Edge
Westy
S-Jax
DD

Alright! Let the ripping begin.

In a redraft PPR i would look at something like this.....

1. LT-He will see plenty of dump offs with a young Qb. Giving him the #1.
2. LJ
3. SA
4. Tiki-unquestioned #4 in a PPR will still get 50 plus receptions
5. Portis
6. Jordan
7. James
8. Westy
9. Sjax
10. DD

I would look for Chester Taylor in a PPR as well. Rudi is a nice RB but falls out of the top 10 in PPRs. Reggie Bush will put up some decent #s in a PPR.

I have always done the majority of my leagues in PPR and probably know more about drafting in a PPR league than a basic....i'll be releasing my top 25 players at each position for leagues that have 1 point per reception or more later this august.

off the top of my head i have them like this in a 1 PPR or higher re-draft:

1. LT - If you pick anyone else at #1 in a PPR league u need to be slapped.
2. LJ - Has more action catching and rushing than Alexander
3. SA - doest get the dump passes often at all, only had 1 reception TD last year.
4. Tiki - Like MSB said there is no question about this, over Portis without a doubt.
5. Portis - Tiki has him beat, neck and neck with Jordan, but i dont think Jordan will repeat what he did last year.
6. Jordan - The guy was hand in hand at the top of the league in total receptions for Rb's with Westbrook and found the endzone often.
7. Sjax - Finds the end zone rushing and receiving, better rusher but has the catch ability.
8. James - Yea i put him this far down, Once Zona's line proves they arnt half bad in pre-season i might bump him up.
9. Westy - he didnt find the end-zone enough last year to be any higher, he will get u 10 receptions a game but once he finds the endzone more he can move up, also i think if they run him anymore, he will get worn down and injured as usual, he isnt use to the beating.
10. Rudi Johnson - no catch abilily, but he cant be any lower than this.
11. Ronnie Brown - He deserves this spot until i see what he does in pre-season
12. Caddy - same as above

Dom Davis - easily a top 5 RB in a PPR league, but the fact he cant stay healthy and Houstons O-Line isnt the best and that his knee is nowhere ready for this season means he deserves a 13-20 pick.

This is close to how I would rank it - definitely the top 10 guys I'd have in there.

My rankings for 1-5 would be the same.

I'd move S-Jax to 6, particularly with the rumors of Faulk retiring and Jackson has shown good hands as a receiving back. I think we'll see more screens for him in the new offense.

Jordan at 7... I think he'll see more carries/fewer catches with Shell as coach, but he's still a great receiving back

and then

8. Edge
9. Davis
10. Westbrook

BOTH Davis and Westbrook have health questions surrounding them, but if healthy, both are top 10 backs in a PPR.
