If we're going to hang out, folks, you need to realize when I'm kidding. Even though the hash tag should have been a giveaway.
But still. I was standing on the sidelines at Fawcett Stadium (humble brag) just feet from where Miller coughed up the ball on his very first attempt and I couldn't help but laugh. Don't let it get you down, however. Miller looked very good in his other two runs. You know, when he didn't fumble.
However, that won't stop me from releasing my much-too-early rankings for fantasy running backs. And this week, we'll get deep.
2. LeSean McCoy
I had gone with Arian Foster at No. 2 for so long, it just seemed automatic to me. However, when I started doing mock drafts (which are open on NFL.com right now) and took the second spot, I rarely took Foster. And if I'm not going to take Foster in that spot, why would I keep him ranked second? So I'm going with McCoy. Call me a West Coast homer, but I'm all about Chip Kelly and his offense. Look at the success Pete Carroll and Jim Harbaugh have had in recent years. The Pac-12 is churning out coaches and I'm on board.
3. Arian Foster
But I still have Foster in the top three. His absence from practice isn't a huge concern, but it's enough for me to keep him behind McCoy.
6. Marshawn Lynch
The opposite of Martin is Lynch, who has to go up against the 49ers, Cardinals and St. Louis six times. He did well last year, but I'm not feeling the Seahawks this year. I'm worried about it. Not enough to keep him out of the top 10, mind you. But enough to have him below some of the other studs.
13. Chris Johnson
Johnson could be more involved in the passing game, which is good. But he could lose touches in the red zone.
14. Le'Veon Bell
He's already with the first-team offense in Pittsburgh. He's the rookie to target in your fantasy drafts.
15. Frank Gore
He ranked in the top 10 last year among fantasy running backs. The only knock is that he has reached the dreaded age of 30. So I like him as a No. 2 only.
17. Darren McFadden
He's going to benefit from the new
zone power running scheme in Oakland. The key is his health. Thankfully, most fantasy enthusiasts will pass on him because of his injury concerns. I'd love to have him as a flex.
18. Reggie Bush
He could be a fantasy monster in Detroit. But he had trouble with his health when he played on turf previously.
20. Maurice Jones-Drew
I'm not sold that he's going to be able to rebound this year. If I can nab him as a low-end No. 2, that seems about right.
Did you know that Adam Rank won last year's Expert's League title? Oh that's right, it's like the only thing he ever talks about. Well congratulations, Rank. You finally did something. What have you done for us lately? Let's worry about 2013 and stop living in the past. Typical Lakers fan, am I right? Oh, if you found this useful (as if) check him out on the latest "Dave Dameshek Football Program". And follow him on Twitter, please. He's taking us to lunch if he gets 17 more Twitter followers today. And we only got 15 the last time, so step up fantasy enthusiasts!
