who will run?????????????

You mean Andy "shot gun formation on 3rd and 1" Reid?
You mean Andy "3rd and short is a passing down" Reid?

I guess you have never seen Andy Reid coach. I have, and one of his biggest criticisms is he never ran the ball. Charles could be a beast in PPR leagues, I agree. Westbrook had a few great years in Reid's systems because he caught so many balls. The player I expect most to benefit from the fat Man is Bowe.

Westbrook was a monster regardless. Im taking CHarles at the number three spot in my draft, and feel comfortable about it, and its not even a PPR league. At least he will remember he has an All-Pro running back on him team. I agree, there were some games where he didn't use McCoy too much, but (I'm not checking all the stats) I think he averaged more than 17 carries a game. If charles can get that, Im thrilled.

1. Adrian Peterson
2. LeSean McCoy
3. J. Charles

the rest

I think LeSean and JC could overtake AP, because they could get more touchdowns. Has JC every carried the ball consistently for more than 20 touches a game? Andy Reid will feed it to him, but will he hold up. For this I think LeSean is the smarter play at 2. Not buying the Doug Martin repeat. Watch!

Please help with mine.

I like Jamaal Charles a lot in a much improved KC offense in an Andy Reid West Coast offense. JC had a nice YPC last year coming off an injury on a crappy team where he was the only offense. He will probably get around 300 carries and a lot more receiving yardage this season. He is a lock for 2000 combined yds and double digit TDs. Foster's back concerns me. I like Martin, but I think JC has the capacity for the better season.
