Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
So rank these 4 backs. Which you like the most of just these 4… Oh and it a ppr league.
J. Charles, L. Mccoy, E. Lacy, M. Forte.
All are ranked pretty high but I usually see Charles and Mccoy ahead of Lacy and Forte on most expert boards. Which is understandable but am I wrong to like Lacy and Forte more then Charles and Mccoy? Lacy and Forte are both on really good Os and are the feature back. Lacy had double didight TDs last year and didn’t get started til like week 5. I really like Lacy of the 4. I KNOW Rodgers makes that team go but any RB on a team that will score close to 30 a game is a guy to have.
Charles lost THREE starting linemen from last year.. 3/5th of his starting line. Not to mention of the 4 backs, KC is probably the "worst O" of the 4. Not really explosive. But Charles is good and feature back. I LOVED McCoy coming into this year UNTIL the Eagles signed Sproles. McCoy is still the man there at RB and the team will score but I think Sproles steals JUST enough of McCoy's stats because Sproles is close if not just as good of a pass catching RB as McCoy.
I just see Charles and McCoy taking a step back while Forte and Lacy go forward. Forte worries me a little because he has burnt me in the past (see his second year) not to mention he has had injuries but the Bears O is looking good. That team should score around 30 a game also.
Though on them 4 backs?
I'd rank them 1. McCoy 2. Lacy 3a. Forte 3b. Charles
McCoy, and Foles/everyone, has had an entire year to learn this system. He should perform well, even with Sproles on the roster.
Lacy is a beast. He didn't even really get going until 4 or 5 games into the season. Got his bell rung very early in 1st qtr of early season game, missed all of that game and the next b/c of concussion. It was a cheap shot too, if I recall correctly. In his absence, Starks ran wild... with Rodgers behind center. Lacy came back and played 6 games with Wallace, Flynn, and that other scrub behind center. Teams stacked the box and he still performed. Another year in system, hopefully with Rodgers playing all season.. Lacy will be huge.

Nothing wrong with your rankings but I wouldn't put McCoy as the #1 because we haven't seen how the Eagles plan to use Sproles. He was always the receiving back in NO and that could be where the Eagles want to use him as well. I guess until we see differently though my opinion is just a word of caution.

Once again.. Charles and McCoy are on top...
I must be WAY over reacting about the potential problems they could have. I still think they are studs but when you are talking the best of the best for fantasy doesn't that play into account? IDK... ways away till my draft... but yeah... thanks though
