My top 18 RB's

Postby mnheadliner » Fri Jul 23, 2004 8:24 pm

TD’s = 6 pts. each
Each 25 yards of Total Yards Rushing = 1 pt.
Each 25 yards of Total Yards Receiving = 1 pt.

I made predictions for the RB's and given the above critera for my league I present to you my top 18 RB's and how many points they were awarded after their projected stats were givin a point value off of the above criteria. Some of you may have looked at "My top 13 QB's" and were surprised....be prepared to be shocked! I'm currently working on my WR projections.

1. Holmes (234 pts)
2. Tomlinson (200 pts)
3. Portis (181 pts)
4. A. Green (180 pts)
5. McAllister (171 pts)
6. S. Alexander (160 pts)
7. J. Lewis (158 pts)
8. K. Barlow (139 pts)
9. E. James (126 pts)
10. D. Davis (122 pts)
11. Rudi Johnson (119 pts)
12. F. Taylor (116 pts)
13. Dillon (111 pts)
14. T. Henry (109 pts)
15. R. Williams (108 pts)
16. S. Davis (103 pts)
17. B. Westbrook (102 pts)
18. M. Faulk (96 pts)

Let me know what I think. I welcome all comments from "man you're stupid!" to "you a fricking genius!" and why I am such a person. ;-D

If i were to compare it too my list. I would say that F. Taylor looked a bit too high. Henry a little low. I would possibly switch those two.

Most would probably say that Faulk is too low (being at the bottom and all, but i would agree with you there.

bgbootha:

Here are my projections for Taylor and Henry, what do you think?

Taylor: 8 total TD's, 1475 rushing yards, 225 receiving yards

Henry: 9 total TD's, 1250 rushing yards, 125 receiving yards

Second opinions are always good...not that they always sway me, but good to consider. ;-D

jumpman:

Yeah, ricky is on the down swing of his career.

8 TD's, 1200 yards rushing, 300 yards receiving

He's just taken a pounding. I know 27-years old is a bit early to predict any RB starting the downswing of his career, but I think ricky is beginning that downswing. If he gets 10 TD's (which could happen...maybe) he jumps another 4 spots up the list, but that 3.5 yds per carry average in 2003 is a huge slide from that 4.8 yds per carry average in 2002. :-o

I think that looks pretty darn solid. I like those much better than your QB rankings.

Westbrook may jump a few of those guys and I might slide Barlow a tad, but good to see some fresh rankings ;-D

And thats the way they should be

I don't have then that far off from here.

I would put Taylor closer to 6 maybe 7 TDs. I think you have most of the yardage right, i would give henry a few more yards (maybe 250-275 receiving). Other than that i think you have it.

I like these ranking. (Possibly because thy are really close to mine.)

bgbootha:

Yeah, good point on Taylor. I am going to watch him closely. Right now I'll stick with 8 TD's for him, but by draft date I may change that to 7, but no lower than that unless he gets injured in training camp.

With Henry his receptions were cut in half last season and now you gotta think Willis McGahee is going to get some (who knows how much?) work on some third downs...passing downs....so I just don't see Henry's receiving numbers going up from last season (158 rec. yds)...

Glad to see someone else has very similar rankings to mine.

I really think Taylor is going to be stuck in RBBC. Everything I have read said he continues to drop balls and Toefield will become the 3rd down back.

I have also read they plan on getting Jones work and what better place for that bulldozer than the redzone?

We will see but I have Taylor much lower than most.

Considering it's a TD league, I'm shocked to see Barlow 8th.
