LT is in a class of his own. It's It's a triangle. LT is on top, and below that, LJ and one of this year's up and comers. Could be any number of people. A lot depends on what's going to happen in the off season, with Turner, Jacobs, Leon Washington, Maroney, etc etc... there's a lot up in the air. But LT, unless he gets hurt in the remainder of this year, is head and shoulders above all other RBs at the moment.
I'd say S-jax gets it. He's 11th in rushing yards, 12th in rushing TD's, 2nd in receving yards, and 4th in total yards (All Among Runningbacks), he's still young and getting better too. And has only one fumble lost on the year. And with his defense improving STL will have more chances to grind the clock out with him running it.

he should have been the consensus #1 this year.
If I had the #1 there is ZERO chance I would take anyone but LT. Last year, this year, next year, probably for a couple years to come

Unless I am missing something, don't forget about Westbrook. I know he tends to get injuried but if he stays health then he is good. Portis is just as much, if not more of a glass house and he was mentioned. Also, if Denver ever decided to go with one RB then he could be that guy.
