My list (right now) looks like this:

FWP
Westy
SA
Rudi
Addai


I'm not high on Westy. He had a career year last year and NEVER plays all 16 games.

I can totally understand that. Where I pick in my league, I'm going to be looking at the same teir of RBs for my first pick (to pair with Gore, who I have as a keeper) - SA, FWP, Westy, and Rudi. My rankings seem to change on a daily basis!! Hopefully training camp will answer some questions for us - will FWP keep the short yardage carries, is SA healthy, can I put up with Westy being questionabel every single week, etc.

He has no choice BUT to put up big numbers. The only thing that could hold him down is a freak-like season from Peyton Manning where he throws 50 TD's again, not leaving many for Addai, but I think defenses have figured out it's better to bend but not break against the Colts, which means Peyton's not gonna get as many 50 yard bombs to Harrison and Wayne, which leaves alot of open field to Addai on dump offs. Look at the Super Bowl for example, Addai got 10 receptions (if i'm not mistaken) and you can expect much more of that next year.

Willie Parker's another guy that should do very well. As much as the STeelers run, and as good as they are at it, Parker will get his due as long as he stays healthy. Unfortunately the new coach is a bit of a scary prospect, and although Parker earned his chops on the goal line last season, there's always the chance that he'll be replaced there by a bigger RB since he's not very big himself.

Rudi's Rudi. 1,400 rushing, 12 TD's and a handful of receiving yards. You know what you're getting. Just don't forget the Bengals lost Eric Steinbach and Rudi has put up some significant mileage over the past 3 years. Definitely the safest of the 3, but if you want to go for the gold I'd take Addai.

Remember those years where it was always between Marshall Faulk and Edgerrin James as to who was the top fantasy RB? Addai could be moving into that debate with LT2 after this season's over.

I'd 'pair up' Rudi w/Gore-

since you have Gore (still an injury/fumble risk) I'd make sure the non-sexy sure thing is playing next to him-
