Cafe Rankings.....Lynch @ Den down around #40?

Postby Maris09 » Wed Dec 17, 2008 7:47 pm

How is Lynch at DENVER ranked down around the 40th best RB this week with the likes of useless backups like Ken Darby, Brandon Jackson, Selvin Young, etc....

I know he missed practice yesterday, but all indications have him playing.
That's a tasty matchup too, how is he ranked down there?

Simple percentage error. Thanks for noticing, I fixed it because he will most definitely play this weekend.

have to choose 3 backs between Deangelo Williams, Addai who is questionable, Ricky Williams, Maurice Morris. Also have R. Bush, but he's out. Any suggestions?

I think you have to start both Deangelo and Ricky Williams. Deangelo is a stud and Rciky has a great matchup. As for Morris and Addai, Luckily Addai plays Thursday night. You should know more about his status by gametime. Personally, even if he plays Rhodes will probably get more carries in an effort to let Addai heal up for the playoffs. I would go with Morris.

A couple of things...
1. You have Reggie Bush listed at 100% probability that he'll play - He's on the IR.
2. I can't find DeShaun Foster in the RB rankings. With the strong possibility that Gore won't play this week, I think you have to include Foster in the rankings, especially in a matchup @ STL.

Without Haynesworth and Vanden Bosch, there's a gaping hole in their pass rush. While Pittsburgh will give up a few sacks no doubt, the Titans are not a d/st I would consider starting this week over many others. Their 13-12 score last week should have been alot worse, giving up over 200 yds+ to Andre Johnson. While Johnson is a beast, a team with a decent pass rush vs. a team with one of the worst offensive lines in the game should not give up anything close to 100 yds to any receiver.
