Chester Taylor a top ten back?

I think to this point I would have to put him above McGahee (talented but in a poor offense and doesn't score much), Ronnie Brown (solid but see McGahee; scores and catches more passes), FWP (not hitting the home run or the yardage as much).

To boot, other than Chicago, he plays in an easy division.

You want to tell me which one of these names is not then?

Tomlinson
LJ
Westbrook
S-Jax
Portis
FWP
Tiki
Ronnie Brown
Kevin Jones
Julius Jones
McGahee

Before his burst today, he was 19th in scoring in my (mostly) normal scoring main league. Granted, you have some people who haven't had their byes yet and what not, but if he's "easily" in the top 10 then you'd have to put him over everyone under Tiki. Which I would say they are names that he's around, but I wouldn't say that he easily surpasses.

But my whole point was more along the lines of, Top 10, Top 12, Top 15. Who cares. He's good and in a good system. He's not going to crack the top tier or two of RBs but he'll still be really good. What more do you need?


I think in terms of fantasy RBs for this season, Taylor should be ahead of McGahee and KJ because he is more likely to score each week. Maybe not "easily" but he belongs.

I also had targeted C.Taylor in my drafts this year and so far he has been ok. I like how the new coaching staff is committed to run.

Personally I think Taylor will finish in the 8-12 range for RBs. He just needs to find the endzone more frequently down the stretch.

Well said. Unless you are an extraodinary rb like LT or Tiki (back when the giants sucked), rbs are a product of the system. If the line is good and the blocking assignments are all done, then most decent rb can have good seasons.

But if the line is bad and blocking is not there, even the "stud" rb look horrible. Case in point are ronnie brown and edge.

Meh. This whole thread has focused on talking about the system he is in and the blocking he has been getting. It's not like that's new insight.

Something else I considered when drafting but slipped my mind earlier in this thread was the acquisition of Tony Richardson which should not go understated. So he has Alexander's left guard and LJ's fullback. It's a pretty good recipe for success.

You know what I like the most about Chester Taylor? He plays Detroit, NY Jets, and Green Bay in weeks 14, 15, and 16, respectively. Those are some pretty soft run defenses to face during the fantasy playoffs. ;-D

Is Chester also the Vikes' goal line option, or is that supposed to be Mewelde Moore's gig?

By the end of the year, I can easily see this as the top 10 RBs in the league:

1. Tomlinson
2. LJ
3. S.Jax
4. Portis
5. Alexander
6. Tiki
7. Westbrook
8. C. Taylor
9. Tatum Bell
10. Willie Parker
11. Julius Jones
12. McGahee
13. Ronnie Brown
14. Kevin Jones
A win next week and all is forgotten.
