Garner (great sleeper)
Wheatley (decent #s)
JJ (okay year, but the Tuna loves the Veterans and their leadership abilities, as in Eddie George)

Garner on top, then wheatley, but if George goes down, then I say JJ at the top (if it weren't for alstot garner would stay 1)

Wheatley-Starter, just preseason but he looks alright. Norv's backs work hard. He'll get some yards. Perfect for Norv's O

Garner-Runs, catches, fast. Gruden knows how to use this guy. Isn't he hurt though. Alstott is going to steal some TDs

J.Jones- Eddie is the starter. Parcells likes the old guys. Sorry, I mean veterens. Kinda like Oaktown. Maybe next year.

It really depends what kind of RB you need.

Is this guy gonna sit on your bench and only come in when he has a favorable matchup?

Is he going to be an every week starter?

Or is he injury insurance backup that will play during bye weeks, etc?

If you will never be FORCED to play the guy this year I would rate them like this:

Julius
Garner
Wheatley

If you need a week in and week out contributor I would rate them like this:

Garner
Wheatley
Julius


If you want a guy that can play during favorable matchups I rate them like this:

Wheatley
Garner
Julius

Wheatley-RBC
Jones-He's a cowboy. 'nuff said

You guys do realize that Garner is in a RBBC? right...

He has Pittman to share carries with, and Alstott to take goal-line carries from him. To me Garner is basically nothing. The only thing he has is that Pittman will miss the first 4 games of the season, se he could be ok the first 4 weeks, but after that he is nothing.

The same could be said with Wheatly. Zeroue or some other back will be the third down back. Crocket will be the td vulture.

Jones will eventually take the starting job from Eddie.

So I rank them...

JJ

Wheatly
Garner

Pittman will miss 3 games due to suspension and when he does come back he will be the backup/change of pace - not committee. Alstott will vulture the rushing TD's though. You can still count on garner for 400-500 rec. yards and a couple rec. TDS.

Ditto here. The TB schedule is very cushy this year to say the least. With a little bit less fearsome defense, they've got to put points up and I think Gruden will once again be a good fit with Garner. Here's the thing, say he gets off to a good start and you get worried about him, trade him off while value is high.

From what I have read, Oakland is not using a RBBC this year. Wheatly is the man.
