Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I'm having trouble ranking these sets of RB and WR, and I could use some help. How would you rank them?
You have some serious injury risks. In health the RBs would be Run DMC, Murray, Bush, Wilson, Miller, Sproles, Ball. Since, however, Murray and McFadden are unlikely to be healthy for long I would put them in the middle of the pack. Sproles fits with Bush as 1-2 in PPR. Ball could be more valuable if he lands the lead back role in Denver, but Hillman has been ahead of him so far and I'm not sure why that would change.
WRs: Harvin's labrum tear takes him out of consideration. When healthy, however, he heads this group by a lot. Nelson, Colston, Amendola, Wayne, Wallace, Welker, Decker. All are relatively close after the first 3 and I wouldn't argue with reshuffling the order of any in the last 4.
RB 1. Bush- especially in a PPR league 2. McFadden risky but high upside, 3. Murray- As long as you have the passing game working he will have room to run 4. Wilson-people down on him but NYG offensive line had big injury problems last year. 5. Ball - could see the end-zone a lot in that offense 6. Miller - unknown but remember Morris was not even drafted by most teams last year. Sproles - good PPR guy but Saints still have options at RB and don't trust thier O-line.
WR - 1. Harvin do not over pay for him though 2. Wayne - The Colts threw the ball more than anyone else and he is the #1 target. 3. Welker - if him and Peyton find a connection look-out. 4. Ammendola - same for him and Brady. 5. Wallace - thier only threat really, but could see a lot of coverage. 6. Colston - this guy should be higher but he is really risky...personal bad feeling on this guy. 7. Nelson - Will see a lot of balls but I doubt he is going to see the end-zone as much as Cobb and Jones. 8. Decker - Welker's passes will eat up Decker's production.
Hope that helps
(don't forget about Le'Veon Bell)
I've already made up my mind that I will not spend a 3-5 rounder on either McFadden or Murray. I'd rather take a chance on Miller or Wilson.
