You can when its a guy who is getting 7 or so receptions/game and getting some carries. After all, you spend second round picks on the main receivers getting only 7 or so touches per game,so why not do the same for someone who is getting the same amount of receptions along with carries. (Sure his receptions are shorter, but he is given room to run and has proven he can turn screens into big plays.



But you aren't drafting a WR. You're drafting a 2nd RB.

Standard Yahoo scoring.

11, 6, 5, 6, 8, 5, 1, 2, 13, 10, 4, 40, 21, 2

You want that as your 2nd RB?

He never scored more than 13 points until week 12. You can have him in the 2nd round.

I'm not saying he can't be a great player, but the way they distribute the ball on that team right now makes him a liability, not an asset.

LT2
LJ
SJax
Westy
Gore
SA
Rudi
FWP
Portis (depends on how they use Betts next year)
Chester


The RB crop is very deep going into next year. I think we all saw the fallacy of drafting WRs too early (at least I did)


On the cusp:

Peyton
Brees
SSmith
Colston
Mo Jo Drew (I can see Fred in a diminished role if not released)

LT (He won't duplicate this year's performance, but the obvious #1)

LJ (His high workload this year is a concern, but the man's a beast.)

SJax (He can do it all and can only get better.)

Gore (The 49er's will be highly commited to Gore in their offense, resulting is huge numbers.)

FWP (Breaks off big gains consistently and also gets goaline carries.)

Alexander (Still a prime back.)

Westbrook (His role in the Philly offense is huge.)

Portis (The injuries and possibly losing carries to Betts hurt his value, but coming off a rested season, he may explode.)

Rudi Johnson (Very consistent and a focal point in the Bengals' attack.)

Manning (Tosses TD's like it's his job... oh, wait... it is...)

I'm surprised there is even a question who is #3 in some of these rankings. I've got to think Sjax has that spot on total lockdown. Heck, I would think about taking Jackson #2 over LJ next season.

They're sitting at numbers around 1900/15 for LJ and 1900/10 for Sjax. Sjax however is trending upward while LJ has been trending downward as of late. Likewise the only difference between the two - touchdowns - was largely a product of the inept redzone playcalling in StL for the first half of the season which they seem to have figured out as Sjax has been scoring like crazy lately.

Disclaimer: People who know me know that I've always been extremely high on Sjax (just search back to last offseason ;)), so take all this with a grain of salt..

I was actually thinking of taking S.Jax over LJ next year. I think S.Jax will produce better next year.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

1. Tomlinson (no doubter)
2. Jackson (A monster! Wait until STL gets back to form)
3. Frank Gore (AS Smith gets better, so will GOres #'s)
4. Shuan Alexander (Still the best behind LT2 but has to prove it again)
5. Larry Johnson ( Still great but with KC's woes, he gets bumped)
6. Willie Parker (C'mon, Steeler= big running game and FWP is money)
7. Brian Westbrook (YFS, double digits td's, you got a near top 5 pick)
8. Rudi Johnson (Consistant, nuff said)
9. MJD (yes you read it right, 07=starter, 1500 YFS and about 12 td's, if that is not a top 10 pick I do not know what is.)
10. Lawrence Maroney (07=starter and close to 1300 yards and 10 td's, top 10 in my book)

No QB's even crack my top 13 becuase Peyton is not light years ahead of everyone else anymore. With Palmer, Brees and others getting 2-300 a game, no reason to not grab a top back with you first couple picks.

I am wondering why everyone thinks that NE will get rid of Corey Dillon next year. Why would they? He loves it there and would probably restructure if they wanted him to.

I know Maroney will get more carries and probably start but I still see Dillon as a big part of that offense.

I ageee that Jones-Drew will be the starter next yeaqr in Jax because Taylor is an unrestricted free agent if I remember correctly.

Here are mine right now:

LT
S-Jax
LJ

Gore
Portis
Westbrook
Parker

Rudi
Alexander (I just don't like him as a top 5 pick. I think he runs soft and losing Hutch obviously hurt)

Jones-Drew

Week 16 is the season finale for most fantasy football leagues. With the end near, it's never too early to think about next year's fantasy draft. Here's a projected top 10:
  • 1. LaDainian Tomlinson, RB, Chargers. Duh!
  • 2. Larry Johnson, RB, Chiefs. Another no-brainer.
  • 3. Steven Jackson, RB, Rams. Has turned into a fantasy star.
  • 4. Peyton Manning, QB, Colts. Still the most reliable fantasy QB out there.
  • 5. Shaun Alexander, RB, Seahawks. Should rebound after injury for another big season.
  • 6. Brian Westbrook, RB, Eagles A versatile fantasy performer like Jackson.
  • 7. Willie Parker, RB, Steelers. Imagine what Pittsburgh's season would have been without him.
  • 8. Rudi Johnson, RB, Bengals. A consistent fantasy running back.
  • 9. Frank Gore, RB, 49ers. Only decent fantasy player for San Francisco.
  • 10. Clinton Portis, RB, Redskins. Scored seven TDs despite missing most of season with an injury; if he's healthy, he'll be a fantasy force again.
  • From 11 to 20: Carson Palmer, Deuce McAllister, Drew Brees, Terrell Owens, Maurice Drew, Joseph Addai, Tatum Bell, Chester Taylor, Torry Holt, Donovan McNabb.
