I really would not worry about the hip at all. The 100 yard bonus thing is nice....

Tomilson only had six which moves him three (TD's) closer. Still go with Holmes. I am not drafting Holmes because I think he will get 20+ TD's....I am drafting him because he is the best bet to end in the top five. You can not worry about who is going to end #1 because you might as well accept that you will probably get it wrong, what you are drafting for is the guy you think has the best shot to land in the top 5.

Its not that i have a problem with, its just the fact that this has been brought up many times, if you use the search bar you will find the answer!
Its not an order, its a helpful tip, you will find the answer to your questions.

BTW, In a redraft league u gotta take HOlmes, the guy could be 65% healthy or better and he'lll still be #1 scorer, he is still going to score a tun of TDs in that system.

I like your original thoughts--going with Green. I have him as my #1 on any given day.

He will get both the yards AND the TD's--he had either 20 or 22 last year I believe and I don't really see him slowing down. Plus, he is another guy that went over 2000 yards rush/receive last year.

I think he gets better this year--the WR's should be more of a threat, the system suits him well and he is the focal point now and Favre is still enough of a stud that D's have to respect the pass.

Gotta go with Priest in an 8 point TD league.

Dick Vermeil is simply "The Man" for fantasy RBs. You don't wanna mess with the man. He turns regular studs into super studs. The Chief's red zone touches got split up between Priest (60%), Tony(15%), and all other players(25%) last year. The Chief's as a team had 125 redzone plays.

That's a lot of points to Priest. Let's say he leads all rushers by 3 TDs this season instead of 7. Those 3 TDs work out to about FIVE 100 yard games MORE than the 2nd best RB next year. Gotta go with Priest's TD production at 8 points a pop. Don't rely on those elusive 100 yard games.

My only concerns with Priest are his age and hip.
I know everyone can get hurt but a 31yr old with hip "fatigue" in camp scares me.

Any chance of trading down to the 3rd spot?

I've got my 1, 2, 3 as most do (PH, LT, AG), but I'd be quite happy with any of them and if you're leauge allows it (and you can pull it off) I'd be happier having the earlier pick on the way back around myself, especially if you are that concerned with Priest's hip.
