Rate these available RBs first two picks. WHIR

Postby DuhToi » Sun Aug 26, 2012 12:53 pm

I have the 11th pick in our 12-man league draft. I'm considering taking Stafford with my first pick as there is a huge drop-off after him and Cam. Gotta take a RB with 2.02 pick, so I assume my options will be something like this:

DeMarco Murray
Marshawn Lynch
Matt Forte
Jamaal Charles
Run DMC
Fred Jackson
AD

How would you guys rate these options? Standard scoring league for rushing, but only 2 RB slots (no flex).

Tier 1
McFadden-he can miss two games and still be top 5
Charles-good o-line and he does not need a lot of touches with an average of 6.1 yards per carry
Tier 2
Lynch-will get the touches
Forte-Bush will take away goal-line carries
Murray-not a fan of him, injury risk
Tier 3
Peterson-will have slow start
Jackson-31 year old running back, not sure if he can keep it up

I agree with this, but the 2nd tier I would go Murray, forte, lynch.

Help with mine?

T1 backs are right.
T2 backs should start with Forte. He never had goal line carries, then Lynch Murray
