The running back position rankings are fluid, the names at the top of the list change year to year. What does not change is your requirement for touches, the back that gets the ball in his hands and one name has been as consistant as the sun rising each morning and that one rest at the top of my 2013 RB ranking

1. Adrian Peterson; Just a consistant body work

2. Marshawn Lynch; In the Prime

3. Arian Foster; 2-3, 3-2

4. Jammal Charles; Bounce back year

5. LeSean McCoy

Honorable mention; Doug Martin- A stellar rookie campaign - Sophomore slump?

I like Foster easily over Lynch. McCoy over Lynch as well. The Eagles should have a better blocking o-line this year.

I don't like any of these guys. We know Pead will get the ball and a chance to start. The Rams o-line will should be improved but not by that much.



I don't like any RB in Denver. When you have Welker, Decker, and D. Thomas, I think the Broncos will lead the league in three-wide receiver sets and Manning might shatter many passing records this season.



Turbin only plays if Lynch gets hurt. Lynch will play hurt and has a bad back most of the time.



McKnight is on a terrible team with a mediocre line and awful QB play in front of him. Ivory will be the man in New York.

Green will most likely be a change of pace back as Green Bay tries to turn their attention to the run a little more and should be starting their rookie.



Still too early to tell just yet. Good question though.

I think, Pead has all the talent in the world, now we just need to see it on the
field. With Daryl Richardson and Zac Stacy now in the mix he's not a
slam dunk for the job, but has the most upside.

How many carries a game do you think Marshawn Lynch will get?

I think Lynch will be a workhorse again even though Seattle has upgraded their WR's with Harvin and Wilson will be better.



Seattle will still be a run first team with a great defense. They just have more weapons on offense.



The Harvin signing actually benefits the Seattle run game. Opposing teams can't stack the line as often as they used to with Harvin running in the passing lanes. They will have to double cover him.

I like Robert Turbin best from this list in terms of ability to become seriously fantasy relevant. Pead is a change of pace type of RB and I expect Stacy will be the strater for the Rams. If the Rams had drafted wisely in 2012, they would have taken Turbin in round 3 and been set up with him as S-Jax's replacement already. But don't get me started.

To answer your original question:

Pead: Change of pace RB who won't hold up as a feature RB if opportunity presents itself. Likely will battle Daryl Richardson to be the top backup/cop (change of pace) to Stacy.

Green: Not even a sure bet to make the final roster in 2013 for the Packers after they selected Lacy and Franklin. No higher than 3rd at RB this season.

Hillman: Broncos don't see him as being more than a cop type of RB. They could have used him plenty more last season and didn't. Then they drafted a bigger RB this season to be their bell cow.

Turbin: Only has value if Marshawn Lynch gets injured or suspended. Even then, the Seahawks drafted Christine Michael and may think Michae is a better overall talent. I disagree with that and think Turbin is the superior RB to Michael, but NFL teams don't call me asking my opinion. I think if Lynch were to go down, Turbin would get first crack at replacing him and could do very well.

McKnight: Actually, McKight is probably the best RB on his team, but simply can never avoid pesky nagging injuries that prevent him from being able to practice (and subsequently play). McKnight has gotten a raw deal as he could be a very explsoive complimentary RB in a time share and with Chris Ivory having his own issues staying healthy, it would make sense a pairing between these two would make sense. But I doubt if McKnight gets the chance as the coaching staff just never seems to trust him.

@Russ Bliss

Thats nice analysis. and I Agree with you.Green realizes urgency will increase in his third training camp - even if he hasn't had a fair shot yet because of the injury. We could still see Green making the final roster, but his role will be limited.

Surprised Ball as Denver's RB wasn't mentioned.

I think, Ball is not a big threat for that big run, heís an average, tough RB who can get you 3 yards when you need 3 yards. Thatís a great skill, and need, but letís not oversell this guy.
