Agreed. I had LT ranked #2 going in, but there were compelling arguments for all of the big three, and I admitted that my ranking was based more on personal preference and that LJ saved my season last year by running over some TOUGH defenses.
SA has been the real question mark. Even before he got hurt, he wasn't doing all that well. Those were the big three.
His foot was hurt in the very 1st game vs. DET. It affected his play in week 2. When he gets healthy, I think he tears it up.
If you look at it, Portis and Parker have the better chance of being up there with LT come season end. Parker has a bit more yards, and only 2 less TDs. Portis has a few less yards but only 1 less TD. So who did better? The person who predicted LT2 as the top RB (not a big deal, a lot of people did) or the person who predicted Parker in the top 5 RBs?
Good points. Portis also missed some games and played hurt. otherwise his numbers would be better. Parker should be close to the top 5 when everything is done.
What I don't agree with is that Tiki is top 4. Talent-wise, maybe, but Jacobs keeps taking his TDs. He'll finish up with 6-8 tds on the season, and I don't think that'll get it done, unless they give him some redzone calls.
