How many tier #1 runners are there?

Postby jedidiah1 » Mon Jun 23, 2003 3:58 pm

The great part about this year is how many runners could be #1. I have the opinion that the #7 slot in a draft is the best spot because you get a great back, and are in better position for round 2 to get another one. What do you all think, am I being naive here? Will there be more Ahman Green type let downs this year?

Im sure due to the chance of injury one or more backs could let us down. picking 7th this year is nice, for the reason you already stated. Picking 1st was nice for a few seasons while Faulk was dominating.

I like the look of the RB's this year, though if I had to put my money on one being top dog i'd have to go with R.Williams.

PS I had A. Green in one of my leagues last yr and im still feeling the pain he caused me :-)

I think that there are indeed 7 top tier RBs

RW, LT2, Portis, Deuce, Faulk, Alexander, and Henry

and then you throw out the wildcard who is priest holmes. There are 8 backs this seaosn who could be #1.

8 sounds about right. After training camp and preseason in might be down to 5.

Henry and Green fall short at second level...but don;t sleep too long on the Edge.

8: Williams, Tomlinson, Faulk, Portis, McAllister, Holmes, Alexander, and Henry

In most leagues, those should be the first 8 guys taken every time. I like how Ahman Green sneaks in there sometimes, but I have him in with Lewis, Barber, Taylor, etc... in the second tier
