However after Ronnie's Browns performance I would think he shoots up those rankings. He was having a monster year before tearing his ACL last year. He looks to be completely recovered and hopefully Miami will start giving him a majority of the carries now that he has shown he's back. I would put him right behind Gore & Lynch but ahead of Turner & Johnson.
I drop Turner down because he's had two big games against two very poor defenses. When he faces a good defense he will struggle because they will load up the box to stop him and make the rookie Matt Ryan beat them through the air.
I had thought it may take Brown 4 weeks or so to get in football shape after his knee injury. He looked ready yesterday. Love a hard running power back in a Tuna styled O. Brown will share with Ricky, but get the money shots at the goalline.
Gore-The 9ers face 3 Ds that can slow the run, but Gore can catch too. Gold in a Mad Martz O. Big big year on hand.
Brown-Already discussed. If he is healthy, big time TDs ahead.
Lynch-The Bills have to buck the trend of a Jauron coached team-fading badly the year after busting out. If the Bills fall behind, Lynch could lose some opportunities. Expect they keep close enough to feed Lynch to the endzone...alot.
Turner-I guess I favor RBs who are looked to in the redzone. Turner have a very nice season. Tough playoff schedule with TB and Minnesota.
Johnson-Hard to keep a good Johnson down, but I expect the rook to wear down toward the end of the season and he will never take goalline carries from Le Whale.
