RB's by tier....

Moderator: Football Moderators

Postby Mr. G » Sat Sep 04, 2004 10:43 am

Here's my tiering NOT based on last year's numbers but on how I foresee them being ranked at season's end.

Deuce - will see the endzone on the ground 14x and air 5x while racking up 2100 total yards.
Jamal - underrated because of legal issues but will be fired up to prove he is the best rb in the NFL.
Portis - will be a workhorse
Edge - will build upon last year's second half
LT2 - will suffer slightly because of revamped o-line.
Alexander - very close to second group but averaging 20 carries a game and Sea's propensity to spread the ball hurts value some.
Barlow - 2000 combined yards
Westbrook - the man in a ball control o with TO to keep d's honest
Ahman - will play in 13 games max, has a lot of mileage
Priest - will also miss some time
Freddy T - more td's hawked
Dillon - spread O, nice rebound though
TJones - underrated
Henry - solid but will lose carries
Rudy - steady all season
SDavis - mileage but a lot left
DDavis - low scoring O but conservative
KJones - 1100, 8 td's ROYear
JJones - too good to come off the field except in the fourth quarter
TJ - second coming of Earl Campbell
CBrown - will be the workhorse
Bennett - injury bug bites into numbers
Faulk - will play in 8-10 games
QGriffin/Bell - RBBC by week 5
Barber - O woes
Martin - td woes
Suggs - rbbc woes
Staley - lack of big play woes
Dunn - overrated if possible
Garner - injury/ Pittman
Wheatley - too many backs there to compete with.

you have tiki too low, dayne will be a non-factor once the season starts (he stunk the rest of preseason after his so-called "breakthrough" first game).

I also think people are scaring themselves away unnecessarily from fred taylor...he will break enough long plays to score a solid number of TD's.

Mr. G those are some pretty..not necessarily crazy rankings
but i think holmes should be higher, i agree that ahman wont play a full season, everyone ranks him so high b/c of last yr when it was a career yr..
i dont think jamal will do nearly as good, alota yrds but not so many TD's
