    I should probably go look up the projected stats for both CJ and LenDale, but I'd expect something along the lines of:

    CJ - 1400 yds, 20 TDs (total)
    LenDale - 900 yds, 15 TDs (total)

    I'm sure 20 TDs is much more than fantasy football experts are expecting, but I see around 12-15 TDs from rushes and 3-5 TDs from passes.


    Running back rankings IMO:

    1. Adrian Peterson
    2. Michael Turner
    3. Chris Johnson
    4. Maurice Jones-Drew
    5. DeAngelo Williams

    I'm expecting a big year for Reggie. He's healthy, has a good line, and has a hump on his shoulders from people criticizing him. I think he'll excel. But hey wat do i kno, im the same guy who drafted CJ no.1 overall last season.

    There's a difference from being healthy and being able to stay healthy though. Their line is okay. I'd say around 10th-12th best.

    He's maybe the 10th best running back.


    P.S. I took CJ in the 4th round with hopes that I would get a steal... I did. I also had LenDale White, Titans defense, and Rob Bironas... easy championship.

    Why would you ever think about taking him so early? :ha:

    1- Peterson
    2- MJD
    3- Turner (due to high number of carries last year)
    4- Forte
    5- S. Jackson
    6- CJ
    7- D. Williams
    8- Slaton
    9- Gore
    10- Tomlinson

    thats my pre- preseason rankings
    this may or may not change much

    fwiw

    if you do draft CJ , you MUST handcuff him with White
    other must handcuffs:

    Turner - Norwood
    LT - Sproles
    D. Williams - J. Stewart
    Peterson - Taylor
    Pierre T. - R. Bush
    Addai - Brown
    McGahee - Rice
    Westbrook - McCoy
    Hightower - Wells

    That's pretty much the consensus top 10 no matter who you pick, however I would tweak a little based on where your position is in the draft. I'd swap spots of Slaton and Jackson, yes I put Slaton slightly above CJ primarily for his pass catching prowess. I'd also swap Turner and Forte. I might also put Brandon Jacobs at #10 rather than LT.

    My sleeper RB pick this year is Derrick Ward in TB.

    IMO i think CJ is going to have a monster year in fantasy. Granted LW will probably get the bulk of the carries inside the 5 again but i think the Titans are going to expand the play book and find alot of different ways to get CJ involved in the passing game.
