Murray (standard or PPR, he's #1 on this list)

Warning: heavy Lynch bias can be found in the following rankings

Murray - if he stays healthy he easily has the most PPR upside and should be good for around 40-50 receptions

Sproles -factoring in a slight regression for Forte, I think Sproles will have slightly lower yardage totals but will outscore Forte with 20-25 more receptions, in .5PPR I'd give Forte the nod but this is practically a wash

Forte - questions around utilization are real but I can't see him having much less than 1300-1400 total yards, 40-50 receptions and 4-5 TDs

Trich - floor is too low to recommend him above both Sproles and Forte but he easily has a higher ceiling due to the pure volume of work he should get, he's also not too shabby at catching passes out of the backfield

Lynch - I mostly just don't trust him and think he'll perform like a RB2 this year, he doesn't exactly have soft hands either

1) I think DeMarco is the clear number 1. He'll put up a lot of yards/TDs on the ground and Romo should look his way quite a bit.
2) Forte. I could see Sproles here but I think Forte's yards and TDs on the ground overcome Sproles' extra receptions.
3) Lots of upside with Sproles. Could go either way between him and Forte.
4) Richardson. Obviously a bit of an unknown quantity but I think he's going to be great. Lots of upside in Cleveland's system so I'd put him over Lynch in a PPR.
5) Lynch. I'd move him up in a standard scoring league but Lynch is average at best in a PPR league.
