Wouldnt a team who relies heavily on their D to win games, prefer a run oriented offense rather than a passing one? That would certainly keep the D fresh and take time off the clock.

NE's offense has been unable to actually run b/c their RBs weren't very good. Now they have a former pro-bowler in their handling the load.

Dillon was injured last year, but it wasnt like an ACL tear or a broken leg/ankle. He missed a few games but was well enough and tough enough to play (granted not at full strength). I dont see any lingering effects from his injury for this year.

Will he break the top 10? Who knows, but he has a better shot at it then most, and if he does get 300 carries, im sure he will.

William Green in the top 10 is nonsense. Lee Suggs showed a lot when he was in last year and it may be a battle for the starting RB job up in Cleveland and I think both will play in any event.

My top ten, off the top of my head....

1. Priest
2. Shaun Alexander
3. Ladanian
4. Ahman Green
5. Jamal Lewis
6. Clinton Portis
7. Stephen Davis
8. Ricky
9. Deuce McCalister

If a clear starter becomes known in Buffalo early in the season they will be top ten and knock one of these guys out. Taylor and Faulk both have a chance if healthy, and whoever runs the ball in Denver always has a chance too ;-D

Thanks for the replies. I guess I'll throw in my two cents now. Keep in mind these rankings are based on their fantasy points if not injured next year. Injuries are hard to predict so if you want to dock somebody a couple spots for injury risk, I'll leave that up to you.

1. Holmes - sorry, TD's are worth a lot, no one will get you close to his number
2. Tomlinson - how long can he be the only weapon and still produce? I'm guessing at least 1 more year
3. Green - safest #3 pick, 20 TD's last year
4. Portis - riskiest pick, less scoring opportunities (let's not forget that Was sucked last year)
5. Alexander - safest #5 pick, might even improve
6. McCallister - hopefully will score TD's like '02 w/yds like '03
7. Ricky - if he plays like '02 he'll be the steal of the draft
8. James - he's a stud and Indy scores a lot, possible steal
9. Lewis - he won't get 500 yds & 4 TD's vs. CLE, putting him inbetween '02 & '03 productions
10. Henry - I'm praying McGahee doesn't steal his job, he's too young to lose it

For what it's worth:
11. Faulk - possible steal, but getting old
12. D.Davis - young and unproven in an improving offense, risky
13. Dillon - also risky coming off injury into a relatively weak offense
14. S.Davis - solid RB, but getting old and couldn't find endzone last year
15. Taylor - same as S.Davis but 2 years younger
16. Johnson - did very well in place of Dillon, can he keep it up?
17. Barlow - will see a ton of carries but will SF ever even be in the redzone?

After that it gets really sketchy:
