    Any predictions on the Beast for 2013? Stud or dud?

    Would you take him with the #2 pick? #3?

    I don't think I would. Peterson, Foster, and Rice should all be firmly ahead.

    Is this PPR or standard?

    I don't like Lynch personally because of his physicality when he runs generally means broken bones sooner or later. Also he's not even a 3 down back which I am not a fan of.

    With that said, ESPN staff rankings are more trustworthy than I and they have him as ~#5 overall behind

    AP
    Foster
    Martin
    Charles

    In the last 2 years he's averaging 1600 yards from scrimmage and 12.5 TD's. Those are elite numbers. If he stays healthy he is going to be a monster but I wouldn't take him as high as 2.

    Stud, but more #4-#8 for me.

    I wouldn't take him higher than 4 at least. I have Foster, AD, and Charles ahead of him with Doug Martin really close.

    Pretty close to my rankings,

    Ad
    foster
    charles
    martin
    rice
    lynch

    I have just never trusted lynch and martin had an insane 3-4 game stretch last year. The only reason I rank rice that far back is because he's started losing carries and I think the trend will continue. Charles should be a great threat in ppr leagues.
