To show my point:

Last season outside of AD there was only 1 impact rookie RB in fantasy and that was Lynch. In a PPR league, which is basically all I play:

Dwayne Bowe Scored 199.5 points

Lynch 191.9 points



I am guessing when you look at their scores relative to other players at their position, Lynch would have been a more valuable commodity last year, and looking at their raw numbers is deceiving because Lynch missed time. Also, I doubt many people took Bowe ahead of Calvin Johnson who was generally the 2nd rookie off the board. I like Kelly, but I'll take guys who are feature backs ahead of him, especially considering he could use a little polish and productive WR's grow on trees these days.

As far as the #2 is concerned, I go with Stewart as I had him not far behind McFadden. If he gets in the right scheme he could be a monster.


Name one of these guys that will be a feature back next year

and my point was more towards the fact that Lynch is better than these guys and was in a better situation than they will find themselves in.


I think all will be feature backs (i.e take 2/3 of the carries) before long. None of them are AD (let's be honest, who is :-) ) but I think both McFadden and Stewart have the potential to match what Lynch has done.

And mainly, I just want to argue with you. :-D

:-b Dick

No one is AD and we can all agree on that ;-)

I just don't think there are enough teams out there that have a situation where they would use these guys 2/3 carries next year, in the right spot to draft them. I see them being good backs down the road, but by then Kelly will have been in the league a bit too ;-)

Obviously the easy thing is to take these backs, I am trying to make a case for my boy. Like I said though, I would draft one of the back (at #2 it would be stewart) then I would package them to the guy who has Kelly for Kelly and something else

Deeray, what I think you're forgetting when you're arguing Kelly is that the question is for keeper/dynasty leagues. Bear in mind, even if Kelly outperforms Stewart/Mendenhall this year, that doesn't make him better for dynasties.

Right. I think he will be a top Wide out in the league, but I don't feel that way about any of these backs.

I've voted for Stewart, but... no love for Matt Ryan? He should at least be an option for some of the early picks, right? :-?

Ryan isn't even the best QB available in the draft. He is overrated

ahh, who am I kidding, I would take the running back in Fantasy Football :-)

Kelly will be awesome, but as I said I would take the back first because of it being FF

McFadden then Stewart

dee, does your love for Kelly change any if he actually does end up in Buffalo, like what seems to be the rage of pundits doing some mocks right now?

No. I think they will be improved in the pass game with Edwards getting more time
