Our league last year: 3 points/reception, for RB's and WRs. This totally changed things around. Most of us didn't like it as far as realism...I mean, c'mon, the first two minutes of a game, an RB could catch 2 passes for 3 yards, and he'd already have the equivalent of a touchdown. So as a result, our RB rankings at the end of the year was something like:

1. Westbrook
2. LT
3. Jordan

Don't know about you, but that's not real fantasy football. Even when I benefitted from it, it had an innate sense of unfairness.

12: DD

DD could be top 5 if he is healthy for the enitre season, but that isnt very possible.

Great list couldn't have done it any other way, other than Ronnie being listed behind Rudi.
Thanks to Joelamosobadiah for another great sig

Redskins Win wrote:i wouldn't draft or rank a RB based on PPR scoring system because a running back is a multifacet position and depending on your scoring system he is bound to score the bulk of his points via rushing, TD's and receiving yards. PPR is just a little added bonus. what do you get 1 pt for every 5 receptions? that's hardly value.

Besides if you were ranking for PPR westbrook would probably be top 3-5

In many leagues you get 1 pt per reception, so they do factor very high into your choice. Its mainly on yahoo scoring systems that I see it.

LJ seems to be listed twice (ah, nevermind. That's LaMont Jordan!)

I personally prefer Steven Jackson and Ronnie Brown over Jordan.

I would probably move DD and Westbrook (assuming a healthy season) above Edge...I just don't like Arizona's O-line.

Jamal Lewis isn't even listed on there although I'd have him somewhere around 15 or so.

No Caddy? Kevin Jones?

And while it might be time to hold back on the Chicago RBs, one of them (and I'm betting on Cedric Benson) will be a top 15 back at the end of this year.

Hard to assume either of those guys play more than 12 games.

In ppr leagues i dont worry about which RBs catch the most passes. Sure its important but it varies greatly from year to year. If i cant decide between two players i would mostly look for which one has caught the most balls in the past. Its a factor but a small one when i am ranking players. [/b]
