Your top 8 are fine, if it's a keeper league I might bump L.T. up to #1.

Westbrook could use a little bump up with Buckhalter out. Barlow deserves some respect, not the #6 RB, but not as low as #14 either. I'd put Barlow over Corey Dillon. Patriots love to spread the ball around too much. Dillon will have a few really good games, but his yearly totals won't be as high as Barlow.

Fred Taylor is a good back, but I wouldn't put him as high as #9. Sorry not to give an exact list, but picking your RBs is a little subjective IMO. If you have a gut feeling about someone, I say play the hunch. Good luck! ;-D
Praise Ricky!

Thats not really true about the Pats - they spread the ball around so much last yr through the air because they didnt have a fulltime RB that could handle the load. Their pass/rush %s werent that bad either - from memory I think it was a 47% run vs. 53% pass in that "pass heavy" attack everyone likes to say they had last yr. Expect Dillon to see a good 300+ carries, the majority of them in the 2nd half where Dillon has a history of excelling as the game wears on.

Barlow is simply overhyped. I base this on the theory he wont get much more than 4.5 ypc while defenses focus on shutting him down, and that SF will have to all but abandon the running game in the 2nd half of most games in an effort to play catch up.

As for Faulk being rated higher than him - let me rephraze that - whoever the RB in STL is, he will get better #'s than Barlow. If you get Faulk, simply handcuff him with SJackson in the 8th rd or so. Between the two of them, I expect one of the best #2 RB options you can have. BTW, I know SJackson isnt even their #2 RB option right now, but thats simply a matter of semantics and time - by the 4th/5th game of the season, they wont be able to hold SJackson off the field if/when Faulk has to sit. We saw how good he looked this preseason, and if thats any type of indication, he will be an elite RB in the near future.

Barlow will crush Faulk this year and from here on out. I'd love to wager u on that.... Faulk won't make the top 20-he's slow, bad O-line, bad team, and quite possibly the dumbest coach in league history ( he went for a field goal when they were down by more ). SF
has a superior team to St. Lous and Az...I think 2nd place is a lock.
SF has a better defense and O-line without question. St. Loius = Lottery team.

Yeah - I have SF as easily one of the worst teams in the NFL.
If they win more than 4 games this yr I will be shocked. I realize now that Im just debating with a SF homer. Time will tell I guess.

I love it how owners downgrade runners when they have no help around them. The SF O-line is fine. Sure doesn't hurt Jamal & Tomlinson with the stiffs around them does it??

Barlow will be in the Pro Bowl & a Top 10 fantasy back.

SF will win more than 4 games -that is absurd. You really don't know what u r talking bout. Like I said here before, Barlow should be taken no lower than 13 in ANY INTELLIGENT LEAGUE.
