Seed these RB please

Postby Poobah » Wed May 05, 2004 11:46 am

I'm in a draft right now (3-keepers) that gives points only for yards and TD, and I was wondering how you all might rank this group of RB:

Chris Brown
Correll Buckhalter
T.J. Duckett
Warrick Dunn
Charlie Garner
Eddie George
William Green
Thomas Jones
Curtis Martin
Anthony Thomas

I'd be interested to see the results, too. ;-D

Damn, man, what are you doing, spying on me? I just posted it, there's 4500+ people who could be in here to look at it, and who's the first person in here, one of the NINE I really didn't want to see it. Sheesh!!!

However, I waited to ask the question until I was in a position to get three of the top four on this list (with only Coors in front of me) if that's what I'm interested in doing. You'll notice the list is in alphabetical order to not give a clue as to where my preference lies. Still couldn't believe Favre was there for me at 7.09.

Read away, commish! *chuckle*

Curtis Martin
Until I see otherwise, he is the unquestioned starter and will get 300+ carries.

Charlie Garner
Probably the best of the shared carry guys

Warrick Dunn
Slightly behind Garner

Anthony Thomas
Until I see otherwise, he is the starter in Chi-Town

Correll Buckhalter
Most potential of the shared carry guys

Eddie George
Won't get a lot of YPC, but he'll get his chances at the stripe.

Thomas Jones
Better than what's left, which doesn't say much.

TJ Duckett
Sucks. TD vulture mainly

William Green
Sucks.

Chris Brown
Until I see otherwise, he won't get more than 80 carries this season.

KG's rankings look good.....although I would put George ahead of A-Train and Buck. Unless he gets cut he has a good chance at being a 1000 yd back......just not many TDs.

KG - Could you quit talking up C-Mart! He's my sleeper, mine-all-mine! :-[

Curtis Martin - Still got a little gas left in the tank.
Warrick Dunn - Duckett??? Come on.
Anthony Thomas - Someones gotta score in Chi.
William Green - Im probably gonna get shot for this one, but I really think this is make or breaktime and hell make it. No crazy bets or anything, just my feeling.
Garner - Back in his offense.
Buckhalter - Will see decent carries.
Jones - Still could get goaline carries.
George - ???? Who knows?
Brown - ???? Who knows?
Duckett - Mr. Walks to the line himself? Ill pass.

Im really happy to see some of these opinions - especially everyone hating Duckett so much. I, for one, completely disagree with most of your opinions on him, and will gladly throw a late rd flier his way. Feel free to take Dunn early - Ill wait for Duckett to walk up to the line as it were.

I'll also pass on Atrain to take Jones later.

Garner reunited with Gruden will be a nice turnaround candidate, but he still loses TDs to Alstott.

Henry is a decent option, but will eventually start to lose carries - I presume BUF ownership wants McGahee to be the man sooner rather than later.

As much as I hate to say it, CMart is probably the best option of the bunch to use a higher draft pick on.

Well, as it turns out, the "higher" pick was at 8.02, and I did use it on Martin. Almost by acclimation, it seemed. Gee, Plindsey, did that help your interest too? Heh

I'm curious to hear your reasoning on why you like Duckett over Dunn and Jones over Thomas.
