I need someone to compile a list for me.

Postby Favre.com » Wed Sep 01, 2004 5:43 pm

Ok, Shipp is definetly out now and I need a 3rd RB to replace my starters on bye weeks. The league is a deep 20 man league so the ww has no one, literally. Can anyone make a list of backs that split, or at least get a decent amount of carries. William Green, DeShaun Foster, people like that. Thanx in advance.

Those guys are very nice in a TD league, but I don't think you mentioned that.

But anyways...

Okay, here's the guys I see as every down backs this year (in no particular order):
Edge
F. Taylor
Priest
Dillon
Ahman
Deuce
Barlow
Portis
LT2
Alexander

Every other team has some RB issues. The rest in my opinion, rated from best starting RB to disasterous RBBC (and don't kill me, this is a quick list).

Lewis/M. Smith (legal issues)
Henry/McGahee
Faulk/Jackson
Davis/Foster
Rudi/Perry
DD/Hollings
Suggs/Green
Tiki/Dayne
T. Jones/A-Train
C. Brown/A. Smith
Westbrook/anyone else
C-Mart/Jordan
K. Jones/Pinner
Duce/Bus
Q-Tip/Bell/Hearst/Anderson
Dunn/Duckett
Garner/Pittman
George/JJ
Bennett/Moe/Onterio/Moore
Wheatley/Fargas/Zereoue
Smith/Hambone
Travis Minor/anyone else

Obviously you should probably go for one of these top backups (Smith, McGahee, Jackson), otherwise you might want to take a shot on somebody like Jordan or Pinner.

I assume Smith and Jackson are ranked highly because they have the opportunity to start, but I wouldn't go for them for bye week fillers. And don't fall into the McGahee bandwagon either.

Here are more options, no particular order. By the way I wouldn't necessarily go with these guys just people who could see carries.

Chester Taylor
Gordon
J Jackson
Shawn Bryson
Verron Haynes
Quincy Morgan
Alstott
Scobey/D Anderson

And guys who backup the "everydown backs" but might see some carries anyway.

K Faulk
Davenport

Actually, they're ranked highly, because I was ranking the best starting RBs for each team first, and then listed their backups as a way for one to assess the starter and/or backups given value.

You can take Dillon off that list, he'll be sharing third downs with Kevin Faulk.

Also if you want to get a little nitpicky, Ahman will lose some series to Davenport/Fisher.
