i think cory dillon should be on the list, w/ a decent QB this year, dillon will be less focused on, a 1350 yds season w/ 10 tds isnt out of sight

If you're asking who the top backs will be this season, James may very well be in the top three. If you're asking in what order RBs should be drafted, James should be moved far down on this list - your top pick should be as close as possible to risk-free.

I'm also a little worried about Curtis Martin - it's possible that Jordan will pick up a considerable number of goal-line carries.

C. Dillon should be on the list, the Bengals will have a better team this year, look what he did when they had nobody.

Replace Ricky Williams with Corey Dillon and your list is about right. Btw I think Tomlinson is going to be one of the top 3 backs this year.

Top 10

1. Marshall Faulk
2. Stephen Alexander
3. Ahman Green
4. Eddie George
5. Priest Holmes
5. Curtis Martin
6. Corey Dillon
7. LaDanian Tomlinson
8. Ricky Williams
9. Michael Bennett
10. Edgerrin James

James would be #2 if he wasn't coming off of that knee injury and I had gotten a look at him in a pre-season game. Obviously Fred Taylor also has more talent than most everyone on this list. Stay healthy Fred. I've watched him since high school (he played my school back in the day) and he's just amazing. But if you take him, get Stacey Mack too. He'll ruin your team just as fast as he can win the rushing title.
