in PPR leagues, Jackson could be taken over LJ. in non-PPR, not so much.

I'd take S.Jax over LJ ;-D even not in a PPR league. Isn't most of the StL offense banged up anyways and he is still producing while LJ's offense is a bunch of old men ;-D
A win next week and all is forgotten.

Jackson in a dynasty or keeper, or PPR. redraft, standard scoring, its close but I might still go with LJ.

Actually he does run incredibly soft. He even admits that to some degree. He runs so that he "stays fresh." It will probably help his career in the long run, but I think it keeps him from being a truly great back (not fantasy back, but in general)

My top 10 (for now)
1. LaDainian Tomlinson - No-brainer obviously
2. Larry Johnson - So steady. At this point I trust him a little more than Jackson. I have a feeling SJax may fall off just a bit next year.
3. Steven Jackson - I've loved this guy since he got into the league, but I'm not sure he's going to put up another year quite as good as this one receiving-wise.
4. Frank Gore - Guided one of my teams to a championship this year. Incredibly talented, hopefully he can keep it up.
5. Shaun Alexander - Still a TD machine, but he is getting older and Seattle may be falling off just a bit. He's only been the dominant fantasy player he was because of his supporting cast, IMO.
6. Willie Parker - He really stepped up this year to prove he was an elite back. Solidly in the top 10.
7. Brian Westbrook - Sometimes a little inconsistent, but a top 10 back nonetheless.
8. Rudi Johnson - Another solid season. Always a safe pick.
9. Clinton Portis - It's yet to be seen how much Betts will cut into his carries (I think fairly significantly) but he's still super-talented and the Washington O-line has been dominating during the second half of the season. I don't expect either WAS RB to be traded.
10. Peyton Manning - Allthough I would probably never take him this early. I hate taking QBs in the first or second round.

Guys to watch would be Maurice Jones-Drew, Laurence Maroney, Ladell Betts, Joseph Addai if any of their situations change. And I think Ronnie Brown and Willis McGahee will probably be fairly undervalued, at least going by what I'm reading in this thread.

Anyone who watched the Hawks-Chargers game would know **** well that SA does NOT run soft. He does tend to lay off a bit at times, but not in the sense of running soft. He takes it straight to guys and is one of the most physical RB's out there.
