1) Holmes- KC needs to run to win... also their best receiving threat

2) Williams- will have off weeks as teams know if they stop him they stop the Dolphins, but will have enough huge games to make up for it

3) A. Green- looks great running and receiving, should be able to chalk him up for 100 total yards a game easy and a TD

4) Davis- Running like a faster Bettis in his prime. I think more TD's will start coming to make him a top 5 back

5) LT- as the passing game picks up in SD, he will see more running room and put up some huge games

6) Portis- only injury concerns keep him from being higher

7) Alexander- I'm not sold on Hasselback as a guy who can pass you to success ( i went to High School w/ him, he has slightly less hair now, haha), they need the run to succeed

8) Deuce- too much pure talent to be any lower

9) Lewis- no passing game will come back to haunt him

10) Henry- showed how tough he was this week, will play and be a top 10 back

I like the way you think BrokenLizards - with Portis and Davis 1 and 2. I have them both on my team, and I got Davis midway through the 3rd round in a 14 team league. He was easily the steal of the draft. And you know what my record is in that league? 0-5. And I have Toomer, K-Rob, and Aaron Brooks also. This is a 14 team league, and I'm 0-5. What the hell is goin on?

Portis - healthy he is too damn elusive too consistently
Ricky - tough runner,.team committed to run
Alexander - I'd take him over Priest on health concerns
Priest - minor hip flare up coincides with recent mini-slump. Red flag.
LT - Still running hard, team struggling
A Green - back to back games with long TD runs on the first drive
J Lew - bull runner, team committed to run
Deuce - still a stud, even with the flu
S Davis - stuns even me I put him this high
Henry - luckiest RB in fantasy

In general it seems people are over-reacting to one week worth of games. IE Tomlinson's Chargers fell behind again and he may still have been hobbled by his calf injury. Just one week ago he was coming off 2 monster weeks. Meanwhile, Stephen Davis had a monster week but some are forgetting that TDs have been scarce for Davis. Maybe he'll continue to get in the endzone but I wouldn't expect that.

1. Holmes. Even Mr. All World can struggle at times.
2. Portis. Last week I had him out of Top 5 but said that if healthy he's the only one that can challenge Holmes for #1 in points this year. A true stud.
3. Ahman Green. After his 5th consecutive week I just have to move him up.
4. Tomlinson. When all is said and done he will be at the top of the list. He has too much talent to be anywhere else, bad team or no.
5. Williams. He gets the carries.
6. Lewis. I may be underrating him a bit but this is still very high and he has earned it!
7. McAllister. He's still puting up points despite their struggles on offense. He could take off down the stretch.
8. Alexander. The return of Terry could bump him into the Top 6.
9. Davis. I just can't rate him much higher because he doesn't catch a lot of passes and will play in a lot of low scoring games. In yardage leagues he will be higher. In my league he'll have a VERY hard time surpassing any of hte previous nine.
10. A significant step below the Top 9 comes Henry, Taylor and Barber. All have their drawbacks. Henry and Taylor have injury written all over them and Barber is solid but doesn't have the monster games that the previous nine put up.
