2006 Consensus RB Rankings (1 Viewer)

Islander

Footballguy
Please post your 2006 RB rankings here. Assume standard scoring, redraft. This is not a thread to criticize or comment on other people's rankings. We will simply calculate the average rankings based on everybody's list to get something close to what an ADP would be if we had to draft in the next few days or weeks.

Several things are still unsettled like the NFL draft, free agents, coaching changes, etc. You should make your rankings based on all info you have available today, as if your FFL draft was tomorrow.

We'll start a similar thread for Ds and Ks later.

Just an opinion, but if you want a rough idea of what the rankings could potentially be next year, just look at what #s they all put up this year and go off of that. There will be alot of movement this offseason...be patient and ride it out.

 
Anywhere LenDale White goes puts him in the top 15 :)
What's the harm in starting now? Many of us either have offseason dynasty trade talks or possibly startup dynasty drafts coming up long before April.Btw shouldn't Chris Brown be in the top 30? Looks like they'll draft a QB to sit behing McNair for a year but whoever starts for them at RB should be top 30 at worst.

I respectfully disagree. There are several question marks. Where will McAllister be drafted? Will Jamal Lewis and Ahman Green rebound? What about the rookies? How far will D Davis, Dillon, and C Mart drop? And so on.Looking for someone who has done RB rankings already?

You are right, i dont see how you could leave him out of the top 30, i would say he would have to be in the top 20 at least.I dont think Henry is that big of a threat and i think they go QB 1st round, maybe they could follow that up with a 2nd round RB, but i doubt it.

nice list..i'd probably take SA down a few notches,too many ifs regarding him, as of right now..does he go back to seattle or not, etc..I'd also bump ronnie brown WAY up , depending on

a) offensive coordinator ( wish they'd taken a shot at Saunders)

b) if Ricky gets traded

based on Al Saunders track record ( kc led the league in yards and tds each of last 5 years), i'd bet portis becomes a HUGE stud @ RB in 2006...he can catch.he is faster than LJ and Priest..I'd probably swap portis for SA on that list...

Ricky @ 34 is WAY low, he is a top 10 rb if he goes to carolina, gb, NE, or like the rumor on espn says, Denver..

dillon is done,get him off the list! lol..ced benson @45 is WAY to low..tj is way to high at 19..reg bush is 20 and dom davis 21, now exactly how does that happen if the BOTH PLAY FOR HOUSTON..lol

I think julius jones will take a big leap up, too..new offensive coordinator next year, anyone is better than sean payton...

keep kj right where he is at 24, he's bound to make us all look like fools for dropping him every year..some coach will figure out that kj is awfully talented and will run like mad if you can give him some,ANY lanes to run thru..new coaches ,new o-linemen might help..warrick dunn should be in top ten, no? he's dynamite in a small package..i'd probably take fred taylor out from #27 lendale white is way low too, depending on where he goes, he coulc be a big time player right away..NYJ??

again,its way to early to tell, but thanks for taking the time out to do this list!

It always surprises me how low Rudi is in these drafts. Even before Perry got hurt, he got about 80% of the carries. His yardage was constant, it was his TD's that came in bunches. He is only 26 and has finished right at #7 and #8 in my league the past two years, while roughly scoring exactly the same number of points.

 
You can check out one of the two WSL drafts that are going on in the mock forum. Some of us like to start drafting early.

I have Rudi in 1 of my keeper leagues, and I don't plan on giving him up. He plays in a great offence is very durable and pretty consistent during the 2nd half of every year.
 
Lamont Jordan , way too high.What has he done this year .Average below 4ypc. By the middle of the year he started dropping one pass after another . OK he scored TD's but once again that was all in the first half of the season plus most of his TD's were 1 yd run.I just see him having a bad season next year , he is slow no moves .

 
This isnt really the proper thread for discussing individual players but if you look at my list, I only have 10 RBs who are currently locked into a starting job with a particuliar team in 2006. Thus the purpose of the asterisks. Of those 10, Jordan is only the 7th. Of those 10, 5 are the top 5 overall and the lowest is still 17th overall. Jordan's current overall ranking is high due to him having that security of being locked in and being on one of the most promising offensive teams for next season. Considering there are 22 starters who arent locked into a job, its not like I'm proclaiming him to have the talent of an upper tier back. Rudi is the lowest of the 10 due to his lack of involvement in the passing game and limited breakaway speed. Rudi is what he is... a good between the tackles runner on a great offensive team who is only asked to do what he's good at. Rudi and McGahee are the only 2 of the ten who lack receiving skills. An important skill for fantasy value. That weakness will compound a back's falling fantasy value when they play for a weak team like McGahee did in 2005. In all other respects, McGahee is as gifted as any back in the league and could easily be number one overall any given year. I foresee a much better year for the Bills and thus for McGahee next year. There are 32 starting jobs. I have 22 of them listed as up for grabs for 2006. That's the problem with ranking players now. These rankings will change considerably. I put in the asterisks to show players who's ranking is likely to change a significant amount. I had to put 22 asterisks next to 31 players. If you just look at the other 10, then you'll see a ranking of skill and team.

Here is the consensus 2006 so far, based on rankings from Reservoir Dog, Unknown Coach, -OZ-, Yahoo, USA Today, and myself.

1 LaDainian Tomlinson

2 Shaun Alexander

3 Larry Johnson

4 Clinton Portis

5 Edgerrin James

6 Lamont Jordan

7 Tiki Barber

8 Cadillac Williams

9 Steven Jackson

10 Willis McGahee

11 Rudi Johnson

12 Deuce McAllister

13 Julius Jones

14 Corey Dillon

15 Warrick Dunn

16 Thomas Jones

17 Brian Westbrook

18 Kevin Jones

19 Reuben Droughns

20 Jamal Lewis

21 Willie Parker

22 Mike Anderson

23 Ricky Williams

24 Ronnie Brown

25 Domanick Davis

26 Reggie Bush

27 Ahman Green

28 Tatum Bell

29 DeShaun Foster

30 DeAngelo Williams

 
I think there will be a couple of surprises in the top 10 this season. Just a hunch.

I think we will see Droughns make his way there.

A decline from Tiki after people finally give him some respect.

Whoever ends up being the starter in Minny will be top ten, probably Fason.

Ahman Green will resurface in another uniform and put up another monster year then start to completely fade away.....a lot like St. Davis did.

None of the rookies drafted this year will put up the monster numbers everyone will predict. Including and ESPECIALLY Reggie Bush.

The RBBC effect will reach almost every team even worse than it did last year. It is the only way to keep a guy healthy all season long.

Julius Jones and Kevin Jones will put up solid numbers this season and finally make it through 16 games without hurting themselves.

Can someone please kick Lovie Smith's ### for wasting a pick on Cedric Benson? Thomas Jones is the real deal and he will prove it again this year. Benson will be an after thought and will end up being traded or released. This is coming from a huge Benson supporter and a longhorn fan. Bad situation for Benson and the Bears. The Bears should have figured out a way to trade that pick or used it on a decent tight end. I beleive heath Miller was available.....

 
LJ goes #1 overall due to consistency. :thumbup:
And being dominant and on a team with the best o-line in football.
I think the reason he is #3 based on the consensus so far (and also in my personal rankings) is that replacing Vermeil by H Edwards is a negative on the Chiefs offense. Also, there is currently some uncertainty about Roaf or Shields returning next year, and if they do, how effective/healthy will they be. Finally, it is not clear right now if Priest is coming back. If he's back and gets 33% of carries while LJ gets 67% (the opposite as first 8 games of 2005), this limits LJ's value. Until we find out that Priest is retiring, I cannot pick LJ #1 or #2 if I had my draft today.

I agree that Thomas Jones is good, but I also think the bears will give more reps to Benson this year making it more of an RBBC than it was last season. They are paying Benson too much to let him sit on the bench. If it wasn't for his injury, I really think they would already have given him more opportunities later in the year.What makes you think that they will trade Benson? Everyone is looking for depth and quality at RB, why should the Bears be any different?

As far as TE goes, there are at least three quality TE's available in this year's draft. My guess is that they snag one of them.

Alexander #6???Hey, there's an opening in my league, interested?

 
Alexander #6???

Hey, there's an opening in my league, interested?
I have him #3, but if he left Seattle, I can certainly see the fall.Given that risk, he may not be worth taking top 3 now.

6th would tie his lowest FF RB ranking since his rookie season when he only had 64 attempts.Actually only one season since then has he been ranked lower then the 6th player OVERALL in fantasy football

He AVERAGES 19.6 TDs per season, he never misses a game, excluding his rookie year he has never been outside the top 5 in total TDs for a season and only one time was he outside the top 2..

what does this dude have to do to get some respect...

The risk factor (multiplier) is if he leaves Seattle. If he stays, all will agree he should be top3 at least.

I know that's a risk, but he should have proven to everyone he is solid, top 3 no matter whatWhat about LTs injury risk? He's knicked up a LOT. Is it more than the risk that Holmes could still be in KC, that LJ has not been a 16 game feature back in the nfl, and that they have a new coach and now OC???

And seriously, McGahee above Alexander? I am not seeing it. If LT was a free agent this year would he be ranked 6th?

Talent of the LT/Alexander level is rare (LJ may be up there too), anyone who would not draft Alexander top 3 today is making a serious mistake.

 
I updated my rankings based on the Ricky Williams news (see first post of the thread). He obviously drops out the face of the earth for my redraft rankings. I moved Ronnie Brown up to RB15.

Here is the updated consensus list. The consensus list is now based on rankings from Yahoo, Reservoir Dog, UnknownCoach, -OZ-, USA Today, LHUCKS, mueller54, myself, and I added the order in which RBs were drafted in WSL1and WSL2. I dropped Ricky Williams from everybody's rankings. If any of you guys care to move R Brown up in your rankings, please do so and I will update the consensus.

So, if Alexander goes to Arizona or the Niners you would still put him in the top 2?
top 3, probablyI'd put him above mcgahee and cadillac for certain

I'll counter with asking if your draft was tomorrow where would you draft him? would you really consider cadilac williams in a redraft league over alexander?

and those are 2 of the worst teams, he could as easily end up at pittsburgh or denver and his value could insrease...who knows!

the point is #6 is way too low for a back of his talent

:no: no way those two teams spend the big bucks on Alexander. I never said ranking him at six has accurate or that is where I would rank Alexander. I merely stated that the risk of changing teams could be why the poster above did so.

I don't think that there is any way he goes to the 49ers either, and when has Arizona EVER spent big money on anyone? My point was simply switching teams or not ranking him outside the top 3 seems way off base.

McGahee and L. Jordan should have a role reversal.Jordan 5 and McGahee 15 just ahead of Foster who would move to 16.

Ranking Alexander #6 without knowing what team he is on is laughable, if he does in fact stay in Seattle I'd say more like #1 or 2.
:lmao: at anyone ranking a rookie RB before you even know what O-line he's gonna run behind or if/when he'll be first team.

Brown moves up from 16 all the way to 10.

McAllister naturally drops down into to Ricky's place at 11.

Rudi naturally moves up to Brown's spot at 16.

Everyone behind Rudi naturally moves up one spot.

Foster joins the list at 30.
