I'm in the process of amassing overall fantasy draft rankings and creating an average ranking position for the Top 100 players based on expert and not-so-expert opinions. While scouring the web for these rankings, I came across 159 Cheatsheets from Clayton Gray on Footballguys.com. You have to check this out. This guy taken several of the most popular scoring systems and created an individualized ranking for each of the possible starting lineup permutations.

Well never fear, here's your ranking.

In fact, wondering about rookie RBs in general? Well then check out FF Xtreme’s The Day After: Ranking the Rookie Running Backs . I love reading articles or stats that challenge my preconceived notions – The Fifth Down’s Chad the Completion Percentage Machine does just that. No offense to thos
