RB ranks

Postby FantasyImpactDude » Sat Aug 13, 2011 10:03 pm

Ok guys, here's what I want to get out of this forum. I want to know your top 3 tiers in the RB position. I'm trying to figure out whether I can go RB/RB/WR/QB this year. I'm going to mock a lot trying to use this strategy. Can I also get your top tier WR, so like this:

Runningbacks:
Tier 1:
Adrian Peterson
Jamaal Charles
Chris Johnson
Ray Rice
Arian Foster

Tier 2:
LeSean Mccoy
Michael Turner
Maurice Jones-Drew
Frank Gore
Darren McFadden

Tier 3:
Matt Forte
Steven Jackson
Peyton Hillis

WR Tier 1:
Andre Johnson
Roddy White
Calvin Johnson
Greg Jennings
Hakeem Nicks

What are your tiers?

I think it completely depends on where you draft and how many teams you have in your league. If you're drafting early in a 12-team league you have to take a RB. I like then like the idea of going WR/WR on the 2nd/3rd round turnaround. I have found this will give me the most solid team. This will give you something along the lines of a Charles/Wallace/Wayne.

If you're drafting middle to late, I think it depends how positions fall. If they go like the should, and you're draft 10 or 11 or 12, I personally would go WR/WR and then taking 3 or 4 RBs in the next few rounds depending on who's there. If you're in the middle, I would draft on best available.

I have been finding people are taking QBs very early this year. I would wait until late rounds regardless to grab one and then take advantage of the players falling to you.

This is how my top 3 tiers fall:

TIER 1
1. AP
2. Foster
3. Johnson
4. Charles
5. Rice
6. McCoy

TIER 2
7. Turner
8. MJD
9. Mendy
10. McFadden
11. Gore
12. Jackson
13. Forte

TIER 3
14. Hillis
15. D. Williams
16. Bradshaw
17. Moreno
18. Blount
19. Best
20. Greene (just barely sneaks in on upside alone)

Hope this helps!

I really like those tiers, I wouldn't change much about them other than a little of the order but thats not the point in tiers really.
