I have been using J. Lewis, J. Fargas and E. Graham. Pretty good combo so far. I drafted L. Maroney and R. Brown as my starters.

What does everybody expect out of these guys next year? Will they keep there starting positions. Graham has played way better then Caddy. He is a better goal line RB as well.

I have Graham in one league and he has been an extremely important part of an 8-game winning streak I rode into the playoffs after losing my first four games. I'm probably not starting him this week (starting S-Jax and Jamal lewis instead), but he definitely was an important part of a lot of my wins when S-Jax and Lewis had injuries.

<--- Another pleased Grant/Graham owner here. They have been rock solid since I picked 'em up a while back. What a relief, because my first round draft pick was Shaun Alexander, and my second pick was DeAngelo Williams (I happened to get Wes Welker in the 12th round so that negated the Williams pick). I'm in a 16 team league and it's hard to find good running backs...

What I thought was my best pick (Alexander) turned out to be a nasty dud, but it's all good because Grant and Graham have stepped up and played great football!

Just goes to show you that drafting RBs early is not a given. Go for studs no matter position because producers will be available on the WW at all positions every year. You've got guys who spent draft picks on Jackson and MJD being murdered by people who have Grant and Graham. Just an example.

Do you all think Graham and Grant will be starters for their teams next year?

Yikes, why all of the hate for MJD? He's still the #14 RB in my league. Sure, he was probably overhyped coming into the season, but there are much worse RB draft picks out there. Guys like SA, T. Jones, Benson, Jordan, Henry, Jacobs, LJ, Rudi, Maroney, etc. Those guys were all picked in the first couple of rounds and are absolute crap.
14 Teams, each keep 14 players

These two are my starters in a league where I drafted Larry Johnson and Cadillac Williams as my #1 and #2... so yeah, I definitely need to thank them. :-D

Some nice stats from Yahoo just to make all the non Grant/Graham owners jealous:

Grant leads the NFL in rushing since taking over as the primary rusher in Week 8 and shows no signs of slowing down.


and

Graham also has nine rushing touchdowns so far this season; only LaDainian Tomlinson, Adrian Peterson and Joseph Addai have carried the ball into the end zone more often this season.
