2013 Dynasty League RankingsMy Dynasty rankings are predicated on a three year window. To project six seasons long term is unrealistic and not feasible considering the flux of free agency and the injury impact of the NFL. Along with different Dynasty league formatting. I factor individual talent, supporting cast, system, injury history/character concerns, and perceived value in the eyes of Dynasty players.
1. LeSean McCoy, RB, PHI - Age 26
Talent, age and system are all still in his favor. Can do it all for a long time to come.
2. Adrian Peterson, RB, MIN - Age 29
Achieved what has never been done in history post knee reconstruction. HC Frazier will continue to ride him as he's managed to improve every year.
3. Doug Martin, RB, TB - Age 25
New kid on the block rides the wave of talent and system designed to see him thrive.
4. Jamaal Charles, RB, KC - Age 27
Another year post ACL with a better HC and hopefully QB and team moving forward all bodes well. Captain check down may throw him 90 receptions!
5. Arian Foster, RB, HOU - Age 28
In spite of slowly diminishing returns he's by far the Texans best weapon and still a top 5 RB NFL talent. But, the nagging calf drops him behind Dougie.
6. Marshawn Lynch, RB, SEA - Age 28
Continues to amaze and produce with a style unto himself. Now paired with a dangerous QB he'll see more GL opportunities.
7. C.J. Spiller, RB, BUF - Age 27
Took over the title as most electrifying RB. Moving with a RB friendly HC. I think he may have a tougher year then many believe in spite of.
8. Ray Rice, RB, BAL - Age 27
The threat of Bernard Pierce is legit, and won't see as many catches but durable as they come and integral to the Ravens offense.
9. Matt Forte, RB, CHI - Age 28
Tendency to get nicked a bit, still an excellent RB with what figures to be a better offense, and maybe doesn't lose as much GL touches. Will definitely see more receptions.
10. Trent Richardson, RB, IND - Age 23
The Colts get their bellcow running back. He's off to a slow start, but can't let him slip further than 10.
11. Chris Johnson, RB, NYJ - Age 28
The thing I like least about CJ is Jake Locker. He Locker a bust and will severely limit CJ's opportunities. And now Shonn Greene for the GL .
12. Alfred Morris, RB, WAS - Age 25
Love this guy's style but not sure he'll sustain it long term. Also not much used as a pass catcher.
13. Darren Sproles, RB, PHI - Age 31
Touch for touch difficult to beat in what should be an improved Saints offense.
14. DeMarco Murray, RB, DAL - Age 26
Has heart but not an NFL RB's body long term.
15. Reggie Bush, RB, DET - Age 29
Has proven the past two seasons to be an all around NFL and fantasy RB. Now in line for a 75 catch season with chance to be 'the guy' in Detroit when LeShoure stumbles.
16. Giovani Bernard, RB, CIN (R) - Age 22
My top overall rookie back on talent, can do it all explosively landed in a terrible place with OC Jay Gruden's vanilla taste vision.
17. Stevan Ridley, RB, NE - Age 25
Not sure he'll ever catch too many balls but the TD opportunities and touches will continue.
18. Maurice Jones-Drew, RB, OAK - Age 29
So far so good on the foot, entering a contract year, his last big one. I like!
19. Darren McFadden, RB, OAK - Age 27
I can almost repeat the above but Dmac has proven it more times that he cannot last a full season on a team that will continue struggling.
20. Eddie Lacy, RB, GB (R) - Age 23
With news of a nasty case of turf toe and lazy workouts, dropping in the draft to the Packers may have been a gift for him, and you? Don't let the photos fool you!
21. David Wilson, RB, NYG - Age 23
I'm more leery then most that the Gmen will stick with only DW and Andre Brown moving forward.
22. Montee Ball, RB, DEN (R) - Age 23
You may need a dose of patience as HC Fox makes his rooks earn it but he'll prove worth the wait in this friendly scoring offense.
23. Le'Veon Bell, RB, PIT (R) - Age 22
Not an upper tier talent, but his circumstance raises the bar value on him. Especially in comparison to the other Pit RB's.
24. Frank Gore, RB, SF - Age 31
Looking damn spry even though he won't catch as many passes as he used to.
25. Shane Vereen, RB, NE - Age 25
Explosive and capable of thriving in a high powered opportunistic offense.
