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.
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.
27. Ryan Mathews, RB, SD - Age 25
When you lose touches to Ronnie Brown on the few occasions you suit up, not promising. Couple that with a fast fading Rivers and a new staff owing Mathews zero..sell, sell, sell.
A case of great situation and average talent. Don't plan on holding too long, move him after a couple decent fantasy games. Not the power RB the Steelers covet.
29. Christopher Ivory, RB, NYJ - Age 25
Think Marion Barber on a worse team with more chance of injury. He'll look real good for a short time, best to trade when he strings together a few good outings.
30. Lamar Miller, RB, MIA - Age 22
This is more about his circumstance and value perception then his talent level which will prove disappointing.
31. Mark Ingram, RB, NO - Age 23
Very talented and young RB in hopefully an improved O-line high octane offense.
32. Vick Ballard, RB, IND - Age 22
In the right place on a rising team. Played with enough heart to earn the trust of the staff for now.
33. Bernard Pierce, RB, BAL - Age 22
Maybe the superior pure RB to Ray Rice but will need to continue to earn every touch and not get dinged up along the way.
34. Andre Brown, RB, NYG - Age 26
Move him while his value is at a decent level.
35. DeAngelo Williams, RB, CAR - Age 30
Not sure what else he needs to do to continue to earn lion share touches going forward. Get arrested maybe or throw his team under the bus? Has always been superior to JStew.
He may prove the overall better and healthier RB that the 'Pack drafted before too long. Love this guy.
37. Robert Turbin, RB, SEA - Age 23
Playing behind Lynch, RB has the goods to thrive on a run heavy team if Beastmode loses a gold tooth or two.
38. BenJarvus Green-Ellis, RB, CIN - Age 27
Journeymen who's time card maybe punched pretty fast during this draft for Cincy.
39. Mikel Leshoure, RB, DET - Age 23
Just a matter of short time before a superior RB takes over.
40. Rashard Mendenhall, RB, ARI - Age 25
Change of scenery with his old OC, but a one year deal with rookies Stephan Taylor and Andre Ellington breathing on each shoulder
41. Bryce Brown, RB, PHI - Age 22
Great skill set that new HC Chip Kelly will allow him the shot. shady M is so good though!
42. Marcel Reece, RB, OAK - Age 27
When DMac gets injured he rocks and will see opportunity and touches regardless.
43. Knowshon Moreno, RB, DEN - Age 25
Played his best ball before another inevitable injury. Staff trusts him.
44. DuJuan Harris, RB, GB - Age 24
Very productive in his limited touches and the staff likes him in GB.
45. Ronnie Hillman, RB, DEN - Age 21
Door quickly closing on his shot at significance. Small man out in a crowded backfield.
Does everything ok, nothing great. Smart, tough, has a good opportunity.
Really surprised he dropped so low, great skill set similar to Jamaal Charles. Crowded backfield
The best all sound RB of the young clan now in Ram land. Has a legit shot at solid touches.
49. Danny Woodhead, RB, SD - Age 28
Will see plenty opportunity behind the glassy Mathews
50. Daryl Richardson, RB, STL - Age 23
Will never be 'the guy' but it's a wide open three legged race now as they will all see touches.
