    With more teams using the committee approach, it has gotten harder and harder to decide who to go with as their RB's. Which guys do you feel will be studs besides the obvious guys like Westbrook, LT, and Peterson?

    Here are a few guys that I see getting a lot of carries and being able to have enough opportunities to be big fantasy scorers

    Frank Gore
    Joseph Addai
    Steven Jackson
    Marion Barber
    Michael Turner
    Clinton Portis
    Marshawn Lynch
    Darren Mcfadden
    Matt Forte
    Larry Johnson
    Ryan Grant
    Willis McGahee

    Now here are a lot of question marks for 2nd tier guys that are either backups with nice potential or stuck in a multi back system

    Selvin Young
    Jonathan Stewart or Deangello Williams?
    Mendenhall or Parker?
    Julius Jones
    Taylor or MJD
    Lendale White or Henry or Johnson?
    Jamal Charles (Will he be used enough and in the passing game?)
    Chester Taylor
    Felix Jones (How will he be used?)
    Maroney or Lamont Jordan

    What are your thoughts?

    My theory on RB's goes to the Offensive Line. That's why I chose LT two years ago and got made fun of for being so stupid for choosing him over Shaun Alexander. You lose an all pro guard... and most likely production goes down. Now I didn't pick up AP last year because of him splitting carries with Chester Taylor... doh! now a lot of teams have the 2-back kind of system so it's hard to tell.

    Willie Parker/Rashard Mendenhall?

    I'm really high on Jonathan Stewart this year.. I think he gets more carries and TD's than Williams.

    I also like Jamal Lewis ALOT. they have an explosive offense and there's just something about running behind probowler Joe Thomas and probowler Eric Steinbach that has me itching to draft him in FF.
