I'm going to break it down into two lists. 1. Best RB in the NFL. 2. Best Fantasy RB.
Best RB in the NFL
1. Tomlinson - His explosiveness is unmatched.
2. Portis - Could pass Tomlinson. Close in explosiveness with awesome vision and speed.
3. Holmes - I feel Vermiel makes him look better but there is no denying how well he is playing.
4. Ricky Williams - His new found speed has elevated his game.
5. Lewis - This surprises me but he has shown incredible speed and power. The best power runner in the game right now.
Best Fantasy RB
2. Tomlinson. I still feel that by the end of the season he will rank #2 in our scoring system. He will catch a LOT more balls than Ricky Williams and that is too much for Williams to make up for in our league. Will need offense to pick it up for him to get his TDs though.
3. Ricky Williams. Neck and neck with Tomlinson. Yardage numbers and TDs will keep him from falling any lower than this. If only his hands weren't so tiny.
4. Jamal Lewis. He is going to get the ball a TON this year. Only injury can slow him down now.
5. Ahman Green. He is getting overlooked but I see no reason to expect his numbers to decline. As long as Favre is there he will continue to put up Top 5 fantasy RB numbers (He's #4 in my league right now).
Wild card: Portis. He is the only guy that could pass Holmes in this category. The offense is legendary for producing Fantasy studs and he has amazing talent. Why do I drop him? Well, he really is a power runner and he's only 5'11" and 205 pounds. He likes to follow his blockers and bounce off tacklers until he gets and opening... then BAM he's gone. He takes a lot of hits in the process though. I do not see Portis being able to stay healthy and that was the major reason I picked Tomlinson over him (along with concerns of Plummer sucking SOO badly their offense could sputter).
so, i guess quincy carter is now one of the top qbs in the league b/c of his last game?
hey whiz, when you're finished sitting in that corner, i'll pop in some old nfl footage of plummer sh*tting it up. and we can watch it w/ culboarder. which footage? doesnt really matter. you pick the year, you pick the game.
