rank these RBs in a 1pt PPR league....

Postby Hebrew Hammer » Fri Aug 06, 2010 10:59 am

I could have a shot at any of the following...i'm picking 9th overall in a 12 team league. We must start at least 2 RBs per week but can start 3 with a flex spot...

RANK 'EM:
Steven Jackson
Michael Turner
Jamaal Charles
DeAngelo Williams
Rashard Mendenhall
Shonn Greene
Ryan Mathews

If Turner caught 30 balls we wouldn't be having this discussion. I feel like he's going to have a big year, but will it be enough with him catching less than 10 passes. Facing the AFC north in crossover games doesn't help either.

Jackson has the receiving skills and schedule to flourish, but those around him could make things difficult.

I love Charles and would not pick him in the 1st round, but he could be someone good to scoop up in round 2. Good schedule and skills, now about Mr. Haley...

It seems like Williams's unreal 2008 is long forgotten and he seems a tad underrated. But I love Johnathan Stewart more than the next guy and will be targeting him in the 4th or 5th round.

Mendenhall will be the bust of the year. But I also thought Chris Johnson would have a sophomore slump last year so who knows...

Greene is Michael Turner 2.0. No receptions and less street cred.

Ryan Mathews seems like a great guy to have but again I keep hearing about how his receiving skills are sub par (Think Ryan Grant--the thing that keeps him from making the ascent) and he's a rookie so it just seems like a stretch.


What do you think?

You've said before that you like Mendy over Charles "by a nose" - are they just really close together for you or did something change since then?

They are very close in my mind. I've gone back and forth in PPR.

Let's say the first 8 picks in my draft go as follows...

1. Chris Johnson
2. Peterson
3. Rice
4. MJD
5. Gore
6. Andre Johnson
7. Steven Jackson
8. Mendenhall

I pick 9th and 16th. Who would you pick 9th in this scenario and what would you target on the way back at 16?

I'd rank the next few RBs at such in ppr --

Jamaal Charles
LeSean McCoy
Michael Turner
Ryan Grant
Beanie Wells
DeAngelo Williams
Shonn Greene
Knowshon Moreno
Jahvid Best

But I'd be looking very hard at WRs from that position in ppr

Larry Fitzgerald
Reggie Wayne
Roddy White
Randy Moss
Calvin Johnson
Brandon Marshall
Miles Austin
Greg Jennings
Johnny Ringo: All right, 'lunger'. Let's do it.
