Eh. I really think that you can just say he's a good back in a great situation who is reliable and not susceptible to being vultured or having his carries split and leave it at that. There's so much play between 8 & 15, almost, that I just don't think that calling him a Top 10 back means much. He's good. He'll score. And he's in a tier of a handful of other running backs who all could creep into the top 10 or just get left out depending on how their games go.
I would say the sure top 10 backs would be:
Alexander for the weeks that he plays
And then you have a slew of backs in good situations: Kevin Jones, Thomas Jones, Warrick Dunn, Willis Mcgahee, Ronnie Brown, FWP, Tatum Bell, and Chester. Any of those could end up rounding out the top 10. Chester might be one of them; he might not. That's all.
