I would go:
-LeGarrete Blount
-Ryan Mathews
-Shonn Greene
-Marques Colston

because Matthews still has Tolbert that will eat up some carries and TDs from Matthews, Shonn Greene was horrible last season. And Colston is not a RB but Brees has so many weapons to throw that it hurts Colston to some degree.

Mathews
Greene
Blount
Colston

Is how I see it for keepers, where you have to look out 2-3 years as well as the current season.

I like them:

1. Mathews
2. Blount
3. Greene
Colston is a WR.

Greene had his shot and let an aging LT take over the role without very much of a fight. He's last on my list of those 3.

1. Greene. Regardless of letting an aged LT take over (also, an aged LT is still better than 90% of the backs), he's been given the nod in a powerful offense. If he can control his fumbling, he'll be a boss

2. Blount. TB is an up and coming offense with a smart QB, I expect this guy's value to continue up.

3. Matthews. A complete bust.

4. Colston is on a team with thousands of weapons coming from the backfield every play. I think he's far too risky.

hmmm. So the guy had a lingering injury (very similar to Ricky Williams' rookie year in NO) that affected his burst and cutting ability, and after his rookie year, he's a bust?

No offense to you, but I hope that's what the conventional wisdom is on Mathews going into redrafts and keeper leagues this year.
