Lets RANK some RB's

Postby Egg2828 » Thu Aug 11, 2011 11:32 am

This year is all jacked up. PPR or not RB's are not what they used to be. WR's value is up and top QB's are going to be gone early. 12 team leagues. 1flex wr/rb But were looking at 1st round draft picks and 2nd rounders. I think you gotta get a WR with one of em this year!

None PPR: 6point TD. MY list is in a very quick throw em out there order. You guys rearange

Foster
ADP
CJ (Qb?)
J.Charles (go to guy there)
Rice (has RWilliams now to steal goal line)
Mendy (1200yrd 10+ TD lock)
McCoy (Vick had more rushing TD's than him last year and they have R.Brown now)
M.Turner (cant go wrong late 1st?)
S.Green (said he is the go to guy now and they RUN RUN RUN alot!)

Then what about these guys? #1 RB's with a top 5 WR? Scary?
MJD (team is horrid can he bounce back)
Run DMC (Huge last year I think he has upside to be top 10 rb)
Forte (MBIII to steal goal line)
Gore (what is up in SF?)
Sjax (he is always a lock for 1200 and 7td, also another year with QB and better WR's) Mid 2nd?
D.Williams ???

Throw it out there boys....Lets see whats going down in your heads!

I'll just give you my Top 10 RB List:

1. Adrian Peterson (Nice and safe here. I don't see him being the number 1 guy at the end of the year, but maybe 2 or 3 and no less than 5)
2. Jaamal Charles (I love what I saw from this guy last year. Plus, the cheifs are going to run, run, run this year. A guy who averaged over 6 yards a carry last year has to be a threat)
3. Chris Johnson (Went from CJ2K to CJ1.3K last year. I would love to see 2,000 yards again, but I can't see him getting there with the performance he put up last year.)
4. Arian Foster (I'm slow to jump on this bandwagon. Foster had a great year last year, but the numbers are against him to have another huge year. Tons of upside with this guy, however he could be ranked in the bottom ten at year's end.)
5. LeSean Mccoy (I really like Mccoy. I think if he can get what he does on the ground sorted out, he could be a top 3 fantasy back. I'm confident he is going to get many receptions and yards, helping his total.)
6. Ray Rice (Originally had him at 5, but then heard at Ricky Williams coming to town. Shouldn't effect Rice too much, however two or three touchdowns stolen from him is very large in the long run)
7. Maurice Jones-Drew (Not a huge MJD fan. I understand the upside everyone see in him, however the more likely downside scares me)
8. Frank Gore (He's a machine. In my pre-season ratings I had him at number 5, but since then I have realised he hasn't proven he can put a full season of top 5 play out there. Many are ranking him 10 or lower, but I like Gore this year)
9. Michael Turner (Limited upside, limited downside. That's what I love about Turner.)
10. Rashard Mendenhall (The downside on this guy scares me. I can't trust him. Not worth anything before the third round to me.)

Hope you like them!
