Rank these 5 RBs for my next pick Please? WHIR

Postby FantasySportsMaven » Thu Aug 16, 2012 6:56 pm

12 team PPR Redraft with otherwise standard scoring
NOTE: This is a NO Trade league so who you draft is who you play other than Waiver wire adds and drops.

We start 2 RBs each week.
Current Roster RBs: DMC, R. Bush
Best Available RBs: Greene, Lawfirm, Ridley, K. Smith and Benson

I really have the hots for Smith, but only if Best stays on PUP for whole year?
Had Greene in this league last year and he seemed to never have anything but a okay scoring week... that is, he never won me a week like some other RBs can do.
Ridley is reported as having a very good start but now there are reports of Vereen gaining on him for playing time?
Benson.... who the heck knows what GB is thinking? Is Benson their 3 down man or simply some motivation for Starks and Green on 3rd down?
Lawfirm is another mystery as the same type replacement for Benson in Cincy's offense.

So, how do you rank the top three and why?

Thanks for your help and please leave a link and i will help you in return if I haven't already helped you prior. ;-D

When searching for RB depth I tend to look at guys who balance what I already have. So far you've got DMC and R Bush both are finesse type RB's who are decent receivers. As such I would look at a RB who will be more of a pounder and short yardage goaline type. Given that I would rate those available as follows

1. Shonn Greene (perfect complement and high on him this season)
2. BJGE (not a fan but he is the guy in Cinci and he's proven capable of scoring red zone TD's)
3. Steven Ridley (I like his talent level just not his situation)
4. Kevin Smith (he's Bush Lite and can never seem to stay healthy)
5. Cedric Benson (as a GB fan all I can say is yuck)
