Preseason Fantasy Rankings: RBs 11-20


Hey!  I read your lousy Top 10 RB rankings and you missed a bunch of guys!  DeAngelo Williams!  Brandon Jacobs!  Chris Johnson, hello?!   You suck at this!

Johnson, Chris

TEN

I have no idea how he put up the stats he did last season.  With a killer schedule this season, I'm thinking he's going to be less valuable in 2009.

12

Williams, DeAngelo

CAR

Had the best season of his career last year.  And I don't mean "his career so far" I mean "his entire career".   There's no way he gets close to last season's stats.

13

Grant, Ryan

GB

Doesn't look like much, but defenses are so worried about Rodgers/Jennings/Driver that before you know it he has 1200 rushing yards.  The lack of TDs (4 last season) keeps his value down.

14

Westbrook, Brian

PHI

His surgery will cause people to shy away from him on Draft Day.  If he comes back healthy, he will be a machine in the Philly offense.  Or the surgery could be the beginning of the end.  I don't know which one it is, and neither does anybody else, so I'll put him here for now.

15

Addai, Joseph

IND

He broke down last year and now has to contend with rookie Donald Brown.  I think he could be a Top 10 fantasy RB this season.  The guy is only 26 after all.

16

Jacobs, Brandon

NYG

He was successful last year because the Giants could throw the ball and Derrick Ward could run the ball.  Can the Giants throw the ball?  Can Ahmad Bradshaw run the ball?  I say "not really" on both counts.

17

Tomlinson, LaDanian

SD

The Chargers are so wary of him breaking down that they made a benchwarmer with 106 career carries their franchise player.  Should make a decent RB2, but even that's a risk.

18

Benson, Cedric

CIN

Pssst, here's a little secret - Benson is going to have a very good season in Cincy this year.  Don't tell anybody.

19

Jackson, Steven

STL

The Rams are going to be pretty bad.  That might be good news for Jackson though as there's nothing easier to do than hand the ball off.

20

Gore, Frank

SF

Averaged 11 fewer rushing  yards per game with Shaun Hill as the starting QB.  And San Francisco will probably start Shaun Hill. Don't forget he'll be sharing the load with Glen Coffee too.
