Brown or Smith as they already have the starting job as of now. Leaning more towards Smith but that could be a Homer pick!!

I say Brown. He and Smith actually start for their teams. Brown has looked good this preseason, and Smith isn't the most reliable guy. Leshoure should be back by week 3 to eat into Smith's carries, as well as once Best returns.

These guys weren't drafted in a 12-teamer? If any of these guys can be your RB4 (RB3 for that matter) this year, you are in really really good shape. I'd currently drop my entire bench for this guys in my 12-teamer lol...well K.Smith is on my bench.

Long term I like Brown the most although K.Smith should technically explode out of the gate with no competition. Hillis also has a lot of potential this year, especially in a standard scoring league due to the TD potential. It's no secret KC wants to go run heavy this year and they have a much much more solid O-line than the previous two guys mentioned. Jennings right now is a lottery ticket with slight better odds of hitting than most other lottery tickets. IMO you can't really go wrong here, who's on your bench?

My starters are McCoy and Fred Jackson. My backups are Shonn Greene and Donald Brown (picked him up).

I'd rank them:

Jennings (For the short term...trade before MJD comes in)
Hillis - thinking this guy is going to score alot this year....

K smith - Team is going to pass, theyjust cannot run the ball....
D Brown - rumors starting already he is out as the starter...nothing special there.....and the team is going to suck!!
