Preseason Fantasy Rankings: RBs 31-40

New, 2 comments

This is where championships are made.  This is where the DeAngelo Williamses wash up in your draft, only to become crazy superstars.  It will probably be an injury to a stud (Turner? Addai? Williams?) that gives a backup the starting shot.   You pays your money and you takes your chance!

Moreno, Knowshon

DEN

With the Broncos RB depth chart looking like the cast of John and Kate + 8 + Mistress, there's no way to tell if Moreno will get the majority of the carries.  If he's just another guy, he's not worth more than a fantasy RB3 slot.  If he's named as the sole starter, it probably won't last long.

32

Stewart, Jonathan

CAR

He's fighting an injury though he'll supposedly be healthy by the start of the season.  The Panthers need to find a way to get him more involved in the offense, though I don't know if they will.

33

White, LenDale

TEN

He's still the guy in the red zone, but he's clearly no longer the starting RB.  Nothing more than a fantasy RB3 at this point.

34

Brown, Donald

IND

Should have a good rookie season, but that means Jonathan Stewart rookie good, not Matt Forte rookie good.

35

Sproles, Darren

SD

Will start to take on more and more of the load from Tomlinson, but there's no guarantee that he can handle it.

36

Graham, Earnest

TB

He should move back to a fullback-ish role with Ward on the team.  With a rookie QB the Bucs will be running the ball a lot, but all their opponents know that too.

37

Hightower, Tim

ARZ

Even if Beanie Wells is the best rookie RB in the league, Hightower will still roll up 8-10 rushing TDs.  If Wells stinks, Hightower is worth even more.

38

Jones, Felix

DAL

He'll play a role in the offense, but the Cowboys are going to lean on Marion Barber this year.  Don't expect too much.

39

Washington, Leon

NYJ

If he was the starter - or even the senior partner in a tandem with Shonn Greene - he'd be a serious fantasy star.  With Thomas Jones in the lineup, Washington is just another handcuff.

40

Norwood, Jerious

ATL

How many times have I predicted that Norwood would break out?  77, that's how many.  Screw it, I'm not doing it again.
