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. Adrian Peterson, RB, MIN - Age 28
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.
2. Arian Foster, RB, HOU - Age 26
In spite of slowly diminishing returns he's by far the Texans best weapon and still a top 5 RB NFL talent.
3. Doug Martin, RB, TB - Age 24
New kid on the block rides the wave of talent and system designed to see him thrive.
4. LeSean McCoy, RB, PHI - Age 24
Talent, age and system are all still in his favor. Can do it all for a long time to come.
5. Jamaal Charles, RB, KC - Age 26
Another year post ACL with a better HC and hopefully QB and team moving forward all bodes well. Still won't see many TD's but overall brighter future.
6. C.J. Spiller, RB, BUF - Age 25
Took over the title as most electrifying RB. Moving with a RB friendly HC should offer more fireworks.
7. Marshawn Lynch, RB, SEA - Age 27
Continues to amaze and produce with a style unto himself. Now paired with a dangerous QB he'll see more GL opportunities.
8. Ray Rice, RB, BAL - Age 26
The threat of Bernard Pierce is legit, and won't see as many catches but durable and integral to the Ravens offense.
9. Trent Richardson, RB, CLE - Age 21
The Browns need to improve significantly for him to rise higher considering his bruising style and low YPC. Not sure he can sustain that and catch more receptions then he just did with 51.
10. Matt Forte, RB, CHI - Age 27
Tendency to get nicked but still an excellent RB with what figures to be a better offense, and maybe doesn't lose as much GL touches.
11. Chris Johnson, RB, TEN - Age 27
The thing I like least about CJ is Jake Locker. He is a bust and will severely limit CJ's opportunities. And now Shonn Greene for the GL .
12. Stevan Ridley, RB, NE - Age 24
Not sure he'll ever catch too many balls but the TD opportunities and touches will continue.
13. Alfred Morris, RB, WAS - Age 24
Love this guy's style but not sure he'll sustain it long term. Also not much used as a pass catcher.
14. Darren Sproles, RB, NO - Age 30
Touch for touch difficult to beat in what should be an improved Saints offense.
15. DeMarco Murray, RB, DAL - Age 25
Has heart but not an NFL RB's body long term.
16. Maurice Jones-Drew, RB, JAX - Age 28
So far so good on the foot, entering a contract year, his last big one. I like!
17. Darren McFadden, RB, OAK - Age 25
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.
18. Steven Jackson, RB, ATL - Age 29
There hasn't been a huge decline in his play, has a solid 2 years left to prove to show great he could've been in his prime.
19. Eddie Lacy, RB, GB (R)
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? Watch out for J Franklin!
20. David Wilson, RB, NYG - Age 22
I'm more leery then most that the Gmen will stick with only DW and Andre Brown moving forward.
21. Reggie Bush, RB, DET - Age 28
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.
22. Montee Ball, RB, DEN (R)
You may need a touch of patience as HC Fox makes his rooks earn it but he'll prove worth the wait in this friendly scoring offense.
23. Frank Gore, RB, SF - Age 30
Looking damn spry even though he won't catch as many passes as he used to.
24. Jonathan Stewart, RB, CAR - Age 26
I'm almost loathe to place him this high but mainly on situation and perceived market value for the savvy owner who will deal him. Is who he is, another player who can't sustain his playing availability.
25. Shane Vereen, RB, NE - Age 24
Explosive and capable of thriving in a high powered opportunistic offense.
