    NFL RB Rankings

    1. LaDainian Tomlinson (SD)
    2. Shaun Alexander (SEA)
    3. Edgerin James (IND)
    4. Preist Holmes (KC)
    5. Dominick Davis (HOU)
    6. Corey Dillon (NE)
    7. Willis McGahee (BUF)
    8. Ahman Green (GB)
    9. Tiki Barber (NYG)
    10. Clinton Portis (WAS)

    Dominick ranked fifth best. Imagine how great he would be if we could just get a decent OL.

    Do you consider him the 5th best back in the NFL?

    Oh, and by the way, AJ is ranked #11 out of the WRs, and D-Rob is ranked #4 out of all the NFL DBs we have 3 skill positions in the top 15.Oh and DD had the 2nd most receiving yards of any RB in the NFL last year, not to mention that he is ranked #6 in the NFL over all.
    AJ
    D-Rob
    top 200

    The problem with his game is, whenever he has a big one (rushing, receiving, etc.) we usually lose.

    His big games tend to come when our offense is faltering. When our offense has been dynamic, his production is minimal. If we are to become a better team, we need to bridge that gap.

    BTW, these are fantasy rankings...DD isnt even close to being the 5th best runningback in the league, but he has the talent to be.

    We know its fantasy, but fantasy football is ranked off of production and scoring so he was saying, think how much more he could produce and score with a good OL.

    DD worked out well for me on my Fantasy team, but it didn't hurt any that I grabbed Peyton Manning as well. DD isn't all the consistent so you'd definately need another couple of good RBs for him to work out well on your team.

    Their rankings is completely stupid. They base it on the fantasy value of last year, Dunta had a real good fantasy year, and DD has a good fantasy year. Corey Dillon, Ahman Green, Tiki Barber, all these guys are better than DD - come on. Dunta #4 corner in the entire league ? I don't think so.....only one that makes sense is Andre at #11, possibly even higher.

    oh come on we all know the only reason d-rob didnt go to the pro bowl last year is because he was a rookie, he put up better numbers than some of the guys who did go, name all the CBs in the league you think are better than Dunta, and i am talking last year stats.

    It is hard to measure a CB on just stats alone because the top notch CBs in the league arent challenged as much as the lesser ones so the top notch CBs will have a less successful season on paper. (Not taking anything away from D-Rob, I do still think he should of made the Pro Bowl)

    well i dont think D-rob is worried about not going, i'm sure he will see MANY more in his young career.

    There are only 3 CBs I would take over Dunta: Chris McAlister, Champ Bailey, and Patrick Surtain.
