Good evening fellas,
As the fantasy season draws nigh, I've started doing all of my pre draft research. I'm going to be sharing all my thoughts with y'all. I'd love to get some dialogue going, perhaps I've missed something.

The leagues I play in are primarily PPR based, so that effects my ranking a little bit. Qb's also get 6 pts per TD so that makes QB's a little bit more valuable as well.

So, to get this started, here are my Top 20 RB's for 2009.

1. Maurice Jones Drew (Feature back, huge ball catcher, goal line back, primary weapon)
2. Adrian Peterson (Feature back, goal line back, primary weapon, easy sched)
3. Matt Forte (Feature back, huge ball catcher, goal line back)
4. Steven Jackson (Feature back, ball catcher, goal line back, primary weapon, easy sched)
5. Frank Gore (Feature back, ball catcher, goal line, primary weapon, easy sched)
6. Steve Slaton (feature back, ball catcher, goal line, easy sched)
7. Chris Johnson (ball catcher, primary weapon)
8. Michael Turner (goal line, feature back, tough sched)
9. DeAngelo Williams (ball catcher, tough sched)
10. LT2 - (feature back, ball catcher, goal line, easy sched)
11. Brian Westbrook (feature back, ball catcher, goal line, primary weapon)
12. Marion Barber (feature back, goal line)
13. Clinton Portis (feature back, goal line, primary weapon, ball catcher)
14. Reggie Bush (ball catcher)
15. Kevin Smith (feature back, ball catcher, goal line)
16. Pierre Thomas (feature back, goal line, ball catcher)
17. Brandon Jacobs (goal line)
18. Marshawn Lynch (feature back, goal line, ball catcher)
19. Ronnie Brown (feature back, goal line, ball catcher, wildcat)
20. Thomas Jones (goal line, ball catcher)

It kind of surprised me the way the list came out. I am taking schedules into consideration, especially in the case of Turner, Gore, and Jackson. Let's hear your thoughts!

In Perspective,
-Wil

Im not in a ppr league so its my first thought here. Does this kind of scoring really change it up where Turner falls all the way to 8? Or is that just what you feel? I am also inclined to put CJ over Slaton because of his advantage in the breakaway td department. Not to mention, I think Slaton gets less carries at the GL this year. Gore has some injury baggage and I am starting to really like Jacobs, he may be a td machine this year.

I actually think Turner can be taken #1 and I wouldn't bat an eye
