View Full Version : Tips For Next Year 1/25 -Running back
01-26-2004, 01:35 PM
Make him one of your first round selections. Corey Dillon will be getting the boot leaving Rudi to have a monstrous year.
Running back rank
7)Dominick Davis(thats right..look for a big year out of him and the maturing Texans offense)
10)Stephen Davis/Deshaun Foster
Keep a look out for who emerges as the starting running back for the following teams. These teams have either a coach who favors a running game or an offense on the verge of taking it to the next level.
1)Redskins RB with Gibbs
2)Raiders RB with Turner
3)Cowbys RB with Parcels
4)Bills RB - McGinnis or Henry
As you can see this will be a deep draft for talented runnning backs so next fantasy season should be lots of fun

Man, I don't think I'd have Rudi that high, and definitely not Domanick. And LT would probably be second on my list, after Priest.

I snuck in and got Rudi and Dominick off of free agency and those two were soem the best performing backs in the league in the second half of the season. They won me three championships.

I'd probably take LT closer to #2 than #6. He is virtually a RB and receiver all in 1. Hard to argue with his stats.
The 5 guys you ranked above him in 2003:
Priest Holmes: 320 attempts for 1420 yards and 27 TDs. Receiving: 74 receptions for 690 yards and no TDs. 1 fumble lost.
Marshall Faulk (11 games total): 209 attempts for 818 yards and 10 TDs. 45 receptions for 290 yards and 1 TD. 0 fumbles lost.
Ahman Green: 355 attempts for 1883 yards and 15 TDs. 50 receptions for 367 yards and 5 TDs. 5 fumbles lost.
Deuce McAllister: 351 attempts for 1641 yards and 8 TDs. 69 receptions for 516 yards and 0 TDs. 4 fumbles lost.
Clinton Portis (13 games total): 290 attempts for 1591 yards and 14 TDs. 38 receptions for 314 yards and 0 TDs. 1 fumble lost.
LaDainian Tomlinson: 313 carries for 1645 yards and 13 TDs. 100 receptions for 725 yards and 4 TDs. He also passed for a TD. No fumbles lost.
I'd definitely take Holmes above him, but the others don't really come close except for Portis. You also have to take into account that he is on a subpar team. It was also only his 3rd year. He's going to keep improving and is definitely worthy of being picked 3rd at the absolute latest. It is a complete load of BS that he didn't get picked for the probowl.

One thing I look at when I rank is the overall talent of the offense. I would easily rank Tomlinson higher except that they are weak at the QB position, which means LT will have fewer chances to score TD's when compared to some of the other teams. Same thing with why I ranked Ricky Williams so low for next season

Skin-E, he had godawful talent around him last year and still put up incredible numbers. This year can't get any worse. If they draft Manning, they'll have a rookie QB, but by now I'd take a rookie Manning over a third-year Brees.

LOL. Rudi Johnson in the 1st round........Marshall Faulk #2 RB....Dom Davis ahead of a 2000 yard back.
I agree with anyone who ranks RB's and has LT in the top 2. I'd rank him #1 for his age alone (especially in Keeper leagues). He was definately hosed for the Pro-bowl, but who were you going to take out? Personally, I would've taken one less KR and added LT.....

I would have put LT in over Clinton Portis.

Note..I didnt have Rudi Johnson as the #1 back..he is at #9. And yes, Marshall Faulk showed that he is back to his same trick the second half of last season and I would have him in at lease the top three RB's to have.
Domanick Davis had a great year on a team with a young offense. That offense is now more experienced and know that Davis should be the centerpiece..I expect big things from him.
Ricky Williams is a stud..no doubt. But as long as Miami stays talent less in teh passing game, teams will just stack the line on Ricky. he will still get his yards but not as many TD's
