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!
You better hope I don't draft ahead of you in our keeper.
Pssh - I'll 0wnzer the both of yews.
Anyway, here's Canacuna's rankings...
He's still a player. Although he didn't get the TD numbers last year, I'm expecting decent things from him, nonetheless. New York should have a decent offense which should provide C-Mart with some more scoring opportunities - although there's still the LaMont Jordan factor, I 'spose.
William Green (Assuming he lands the starting job)
If it weren't for some personal problems, William Green would have had a decent (albeit inconsistant) season. He's shown flashes of above averageness over the last two years and if he beats out Lee Suggs for the starting job, I'd expect him to be a solid #2 RB. However, that's assuming a lot - he's a huge risk.
He was a stud the few weeks before he was injured last season. If he can put up two thirds of the production he was during those weeks, he'd make a solid RB to have. The only negatives I can see with him are 1.) Michael Vick is the entire offense in Atlanta and 2.) the coaches may be dumb enough to give Duckett some non third down/goal line carries.
Garner is reunited with Gruden, y0. I doubt his running abilities these days, but he has got to be one of the best receiving RBs in the league. He'll put up some decent yardage and maybe get a few scores. There's plenty of competition for him, though. I could see Mike Alstott stealing quite a few carries if he's completely healthy. Jamel White is also decent enough to steal a few. ...Michael Pittman will probably be suspended (right?), so luckily he won't be a factor.
With Duce Staley gone, I think the majority of his carries will go to Buckhalter. Whenever I've watched him, I've liked what I'd seen. I wouldn't count on him for consistant yardage, but it wouldn't surprise me at all to see him have a few breakout games with some fairly consistant goal line scoring opportunities. The only worry is Brian Westbrook - but if he lives up to his fragile reputation, that only increases Buckhalter's value, IMO.
He's a decent injury or bye-week fill-in. He's only worthwhile if he scores, because it's been a while since he's had a high yardage game, methinks. Although if you listened to the CBS sports casters during the Baltimore playoff game, you'd think he was resurging to studliness. I don't buy that, but I think he'll be solid enough, nonetheless.
Thomas Jones will screw up by mid-season.
He'll be a solid #3 RB until mid-season, when Lovie finally benches him.
He's horrible, but at least he gets some goal line carries, eh?
William Green (Assuming Lee Suggs beats him for the job)
Methinks there will likely be a RBBC in Cleveland for at least a few weeks. RBBC = limited William Green value.
I don't see him having much of an impact.
