I'm not as fond of them as most. D.Will would be top 5 without question if it weren't for Jon Stewart, but I have a feeling that Stewart starts to eat into a bigger percentage of the carries than he has in the past, as the Panthers get ready to make him their RB1 after this season. There's no question he'll produce when on the field, I'm just afraid he may have less opportunities this year than ever before.
As far as Cedric Benson goes, you're going to have to color me skeptical for a couple of reasons. #1, he's never been very good. Leads me to believe he may have been a one-year-wonder on an offense that really had no passing weapons outside of OchoCinco. #2, the Bengals have addressed their lack of targets by signing Terrell Owens, Antonio Bryant and drafting Jermaine Gresham. That's quite a bit of change and I don't think they brought those guys in as decoys. They brought them in to get Palmer back to where he was pre-injury when OchoCinco and Houshmandzadeh were tearing it up. That would mean less rushing attempts for Benson. I also believe that Bernard Scott is a better RB than Benson, but because he's a little more rough around the edges, Benson gets the ball more. Wouldn't surprise me to see Scott with a larger role this year if he can improve his pass protection and prove to the coaches that he's durable.
