in my leauge im keeping Drew Brees, Doug Martin, Calvin Johnson, and A.J Green. i have the last pick in the first round which is the 8th overall pick. After looking at everyone elses keepers i am pretty sure there is only one team in front of me who will be taking a running back. here are some of the top backs left in our leauge but i just cant decide on who i want.

. Reggie Bush

.Alfred Morris

.Demarco Murray

.Lamar Miller

.Chris Johnson

.Darren McFadden

.Matt Forte

if you would it would really help to see the order you would rank these guys and who yoyu think i should draft. i really think bush and murray are gonna have good seasons but im still not sure who i should draft. the only guy i know who will take a rb in our league will definetly take one of these guys. Thanks!

I would go Bush, Johnson, Morris, Forte, Murray, McFadden, Miller.

Most people will rate Forte the highest but I am telling you the guy will get a nagging injury that will effect his play for weeks. He is on my do not draft list for PPR. I won't waste my time with him. He has killed my lineups for years. The Bears love to use him as a decoy when he is banged up. If he could stay healthy, could do some damage. Draft at your own risk.

Bush should catch 80 to 90 passes this year. He might out do Sproles.

Johnson is primed for a big year as the Titans have one of the best lines in the league to block for him.

Morris does not catch the ball much but that should change a little this year. But he gets in the end zone and piles up yardage.

Murray can really be a game changer with his receiving skills. Defenses will have to worry about Witten and Dez before him but health has always been an issue with him. Still has the capability to put up great PPR numbers. You can wait and get him in the third or fourth round though.

McFadden is on the worse team in the NFL. The line is a mess and he most likey will only produce through receptions.

Lamar Miller-- If Reggie Bush can't run behind this line, Miller won't be able to either. The Dolphins don't throw to their RB's enough. A report this morning says Daniel Thomas is in line to become the third down back and goal line back. If this is true, it just kills Miller's value.

And while Morris isn't a ppr RB, I'm still thinking Morris, Forte, Bush, Johnson, McFadden, Murray, then Miller.

Just me though.
