I think you're right, but I might have Steven Jackson and Adrian Peterson flirting too.

1. Foster
2. Rice
3. McCoy
4. DMC
5. CJ
6. Murray
7. MJD

tits AP is coming off ACL tear would be surprised if he got even 200 carries as for SJ he is old and worn down.

1a.Foster
1b.Rice
1c.McCoy
4.CJ
5.DMC
6.Murray
7.Forte
8.Charles
9. AP
10. S. Jackson

This is my ranking if I had to draft today. The first four are a no-brainer for me. After that, I'm going with guys that I feel confident will actually be playing week 1. I don't know how you can rank MJD top ten without knowing if he plays a down before week 10.

I agree. I can rank all I want, but I'm not going to draft him if he's there when I pick. I'll skip over him to the next guy on my list, or just remove him all together. If he falls in a certain league into the second round, I'll take him. Same with DMC and Mathews, both just too injury prone to justify a first round pick. Can't win a league in the first round, but can damn sure lose it.

1. Foster - no brainer

2. Rice - no brainer

3. McCoy - no brainer

4. CJ - I flirt with putting DMC in this position, CJ may not have his upside but hasn't missed a game in 3 years, I'll take the durability with my first rounder

5. DMC - straight up finishes #1 overall if he plays all 16 games, he probably won't but it's worth the risk IMO

6. Charles - continually gets bumped up my ranking, has looked good in preseason (good lateral movement) and runs behind a dominant O-line, the players below have bigger question marks

7. Forte - a solid option but I have questions about how he'll be utilized this year (staying back to protect Cutler so BMarsh can do his thing), I believe he'll regress slightly but still put up around 1,400 total yards

8. Murray - IMO I don't even think he should be ranked here but there aren't many other options, he's a much bigger injury risk than people think, dating back to college and he's rather unproven

9. AP - hey, he woke up with no swelling in his knee yesterday after going a bit harder in camp, if this keeps up he moves up, simple as that

10. SJax - he's gotten more hype this year than any year I can remember due to the anemic state of the position, solid RB2 but risky RB1, good for 1,400 total yards, 40 catches though

will age play a factor for older RBs like SJackson, Gore and Turner?
