Right, and Brandon Jackson>Adrian Peterson

Any list of running backs from this class that doesn't feature McFadden at #1 is just silly.

Is that a joke?

I'm fine with people having McFadden 1st, I disagree, but I'm ok with it. Saying that not having McFadden #1 is silly... is... well... silly. Those three backs are in very different situations and decently close talent wise IMO. I personally rank them Stewart, then Mendenhall, then McFadden.

Their situations this year have little to do with their long term dynasty values - most people expected Lynch to outperform Peterson last year because he was in the better fantasy situation, but the abilities of Peterson made it quickly apparent which back was the stud. McFadden is head and shoulders above the other RB's in this draft class in both potential and ability.

That's just flat out not true. He is not heads and shoulders above the rest. I was not one who thought Lynch would outperform AD. Most of the people arguing in this thread saying Stewart is better, deeray, me, etc... all said ADP was a special talent and better than Lynch last year. In fact, at the start of the season before AD broke off I made a post "Adrian Peterson is the best RB in the NFL." McTinyChickenLegs is not the back that Stewart and Mendenhall are.
