You have them in the order I would draft them, but I don't think Lynch will be on any of my teams this year. He just reeks of being the biggest let down at RB this year.
I put DMC and Lynch together at the top. DMC will
miss games, whereas Lynch is more reliable from a health standpoint (or at least has been in the past), but DMC is more explosive when he is playing.
I'd put Murray next. I like the offense, I like his skill set, but he's a bit of an injury risk, and he does still share carries with Felix Jones. He's not someone I'd be thrilled with as my RB1, but I wouldn't be upset with him as my RB2.
I'm really leery of Richardson. Rookie RB with a rookie QB, playing in an unproven offense, seems like a potential recipe for failure. The offense is going to be heavily influenced by Shurmur, who was a QB coach in Philly before going to St. Louis as the OC, where his scheme passed 60% of the time. Cleveland's OC, Brad Childress is also a pass first guy (a protege of Andy Reid - the king of pass-first). Childress' offense only pushed a 50/50 split with the pass once - and he had Adrian Peterson carrying the ball. To me, this does not sound like a duo that will be able to capitalize on Richardson's talents to the extent that everyone is hoping.
I don't like Forte. The addition of Bush, coupled with the bad blood between him and the organization, makes him a really risky pick.
