Fantasy Dog’s Pre-Season Rankings : RB #1 – #10

 1. Adrian Peterson MN – They say he is reporting. They say he will play for MN agreeably. If      that is the case an angry defiant and subsequently motivated Peterson may be the #1 RB in  2015. Until I see him practice in a MN uniform I will keep him here at 5(he reported he is at #1  now). Also worth avoiding in a dynasty, large keeper.

 

 

 2. Eddie Lacy GB – The sure thing. Healthy, returning to same dynamic offense. Best inside  runner in the NFL. I give him the nod over Lynch in that category due to the number 29.

 

 

 

 3. Jamaal Charles KC – Seems to be injured a lot. But keeps playing through it. He is the  centerpiece, the bell cow, the offensive conduit. In an offense lacking downfield ability Charles  is a well fed goldmine. Handcuff him with Kniles and you will be nothing but smiles.

 

 

 4. Leveon Bell PIT – What’s not to love about a talented young back on a prolific deep threat  offense with a giant qb tossing the rock? Just the 3 game suspension. Moved him from #2 to #4  in my rankings. But beginning week 4, there may be no other rb I would covet more.

 

 

 5. Marshawn Lynch SEA – Beastmode baby. Nearly a guaranteed top 5 season. Might be his last.  Either way, expect another prolific season in Beast mode. The possibility exists that he could  capitalize on the arrival of Jimmy Graham who stretches the field and draws the attention of  opposing safeties. 8 in the box becomes difficult. In dynasty leagues look elsewhere this early.

 

 6. CJ Anderson DEN – What more can you want? The #1 rb on an offensively stacked, high  scoring team. CJ is not just a product of his environment either. Reviewing his game tape  reveals solid acceleration, good lateral agility and above average vision. In shape, focused and  ready to explode into the upper echelon of FF RBs.  Handcuff him with Monte and have a ball.

 

 7. LeSean McCoy BUF – McCoy is going to get almost all of the money in BUF. In a Rex Ryan  run first paradigm that means McCoy will thrive. Rex&CO. will no doubt feed Jackson and the  rest a bit too, to reduce the workload. But McCoy will have feature back touches in a league that  no longer has that many backs receiving those types of touches.

 

 8. Jeremy Hill CIN – Explosive, powerful runner. Jeremy should continue 2015 where he left off  2014. Gio is the weekly wildcard play in CIN. Jeremy is a great week to week start. If you deny  his top 10 value, check the 2014 2nd half stats.

 

 

 9. Arian Foster HOU – The old plow horse. That is what he has become. Not especially dynamic  any longer but still highly productive. A solid top 10 season is likely. Another player I would not  draft this low in a dynasty.

 

 

 10. Carlos Hyde SF – Best RB available in the 2014 draft. A year of understudy behind Gore and  learning the offense. Carlos will soon not be able to Hyde no more. SF D was devastated with  departures in the off-season. The O fared much better but with a couple of hits.  Even Lupati  has been planned for. I expect a huge workload for Hyde and that workload will overwhelm  any Oline deficiencies.
