Backup RBs - Summary

Summarizing the past eight posts, here's my take on the league's current backup running backs.  These are ranked based on fantasy value, not real world value.

Best Number Twos

  1. Reggie Bush - New Orleans
  2. Maurice Jones-Drew - Jacksonville
  3. Marion Barber - Dallas
  4. Ladell Betts - Washington
  5. Adrian Peterson - Minnesota
Note: Dominic Rhodes would've come in #5, but his four game suspension is a fantasy killer.

Worst Number Twos

  1. DeDe Dorsey - Indianapolis
  2. Jason Wright/Jerome Harrison - Cleveland
  3. Travis Minor/Kay-Jay Harris - St. Louis
  4. Maurice Hicks/Michael Robinson - San Francisco
  5. Marcel Shipp - Arizona
Best Deep Sleepers
  1. Kenneth Darby - Tampa Bay
  2. Chris Henry - Tennessee
  3. Kolby Smith - Kansas City
  4. Tony Hunt - Philadelphia
  5. Antonio Pittman - New Orleans
