Best/Worst RB core? WHIR

Postby ASUslacker » Wed Aug 31, 2011 11:40 pm

Thought it would be fun to have my league rated
So which RB core would you like to have and which you would like to play against. We start 2RBs and a Flex

1) A Foster, M Ingram, D Ward (R), W McGahee (R)
2) F Gore, M Tolbert, M Turner, D Brown (R) M Barber (R)
3) A Peterson, C Benson, S Jackson, J Ringer (R) M Bush (R)
4) B Green-Ellis, S Greene, L Stephens-Howling (R)M Lynch (R)T Choice (R)
5) F Jones, F Jackson, M Forte, D Sproles (R)
6) L McCoy, M Jones-Drew, J Starks (R)R Jennings (R)R Brown (R)T Jones (R)
7) D McFadden, T Hightower, R Bush, B Tate (R)C.J. Spiller (R)
8) J Best, J Charles, R Grant, D Thomas (R)
9) B Wells, J Addai, P Hillis, B Jacobs (R)L Tomlinson (R)
10) L Blount, R Rice, K Moreno, R Williams (R)R Helu (R)R Torain (R)
11) A Bradshaw, D Williams, J Stewart, D Woodhead (R)J Harper (R)
12) C Johnson, R Mendenhall, R Mathews, C Williams (R)D Murray (R)P Thomas (R)

Team 12 (best) is stacked and in my division
Team 7 (worst) was pretty drunk on draft day ha ha
QB- Vick
RB- D. Brown-Benson
WR- Megatron-Green-Floyd (SD)
TE- Graham
K- Alt
Def- Seattle
Luck-Tate-Hunter-Pitta-Britt-Tex Def

Not sure of the scoring format, but this is how I'd rank them in a standard league:

3 - Like the top 3 here the best, and Bush and Ringer have some usable upside. Depth a concern.
10 - If Ryan Williams were healthy, this one I'd rate in a class of its own. Right there with No. 3 for best group of three backs. Similar depth concerns.

12 - Johnson and Mendy might be best top 2. Just not sold on Mathews and don't like the rest of the backs.
6 - Very similar to No. 12 with two top-8 guys and then some handcuffs and a little bit of upside in Starks.

9 - Lots of usable guys here, even if it's an RB2 in Hillis and a bunch of RB3 types
8 - Like Charles a lot, and think there's two viable starters between the other three.
2 - Like Turner and Gore, and Tolbert could surprise again, but this batch is full of risks and thus the middling ranting.
5 - Nothing flashy here, but like Forte, Jones and Jackson as a decent batch of starters.
7 - After McFadden, it's a bunch of RB4/5s, but at least they're all usable.

4 - Three guys I don't hate in Law Firm, Greene and Lynch, but the others aren't that good and there's just nothing that stands out.
1 - After Foster, I see an overrated gamble with some upside (Ingram) and some handcuffs, nothing more.
11 - Really only two usable guys in Bradshaw and whoever starts in CAR, and I'm not high on either of those situations. Any of bottom 3 could hold this spot, though.

1. Not alot of depth but A Foster is worth two RB's. Success obviously contingent on his health as well as progression of Ingram.
2. Decent.
3. Three unquestioned starting RB's including AP. I'd have to say the best core right now.
4. Yuck. Gets my vote as worst tandem.
5. Just ok.
6. Great first 2 and potential with Starks. Nice Jennings handcuff. This owner knew what they were doing.
7. Question marks surround both Hightower and Bush. Yes good preseasons but.....
8. Overall pretty good.
9. Average.
10. Nice mix, definitely in top 3 or 4.
11. I see much frustration in this owners future.
12. It all depends on Johnson. If he's playing at his level probably the best group.
