Middling Running Backs

Postby woods_opc » Tue Aug 21, 2012 2:12 pm

I have thin draft having really gone it last year and lost in the finals. 14 team keeper league standard scoring. Keepers are AP, Brady, Wallace, and Jennings.

How would you rank these backs?

Lawfirm
Donald Brown
Roy Helu
Jonathan Stewart
Mark Ingram
Peyton Hillis
Willis McGahee

D.Brown - although his O-line has looked awful, he has looked pretty great in the preseason, this is reflected in his ADP
McGahee - I have my concerns with age and wear and tear but he's proven me wrong, they need him in their to protect Peyton so he'll start for as long as he's healthy
Hillis - has had a great camp, think him and Charles are going to make for one hell of a rushing tandem, better in standard scoring formats
BGE - underwhelming runner but a great fit in Cincy, feels like a very safe pick
JStew - purely based on potential upside, will need an injury to be relevant, especially in standard scoring
Ingram - he may be worth more than JStew in your league due to the double TD scoring potential this year, also technically needs an injury to happen to become relevant
Helu - too many injury concerns, Shanny run backfield

1. Willis McGahee - I'm believing in Manning cranking the DEN offense this season so I rank him highest of the pack here.
2. Jonathan Stewart - SO much talent, such a crowded backfield. A shame.
3. Lawfirm - Solid goal-line back. Will net you TDs if not the yardage.
4. Donald Brown - Love him in preseason but he's burned me with that before.
5. Peyton Hillis - My biggest question mark. Could be huge unless Charles hogs all the time on field. Then he's pretty much a non-factor.
6. Mark Ingram - Crowded backfield. A wait and see option. I hope to get him very late and hold him on my bench.
7. Roy Helu - Shanahan nulls all value here.
Thank God for Football Season.

That's how I'd rank them too.
