    Power rankings updated: Ricky Williams on the rise 

    Over the course of the past two nights, I’ve updated our power rankings for quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends, so head over and take a look at who you should be targeting in your draft. Among those making waves on their respective lists: Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown (in opposite directions), Michael Turner, DeSean Jackson and Kevin Curtis (also in opposite directions), Jake Delhomme, and Zach Miller. Check back soon for updates to the team defense and kicker lists…

    2008 Team Defense Power Rankings 

    Power rankings for other positions

    Here are the rankings for team defenses going into the 2008 season. As you can see, the perennial teams at the top of this list (Chicago and Baltimore) seem to be on a downward spiral, with the new powerhouses of Minnesota and San Diego leading the way this season. With team defenses though, even more so than with tight ends, you definitely don’t want to rush when drafting one. If you don’t get at top tier defense around the 10th round or so, I’d suggest holding off until one of your last picks to take one. The difference between 75% of the defenses is so small that it won’t have much affect on your season…plus if you’re really into weekly match-ups, you could always pick up a defense each week based on the team they’re playing and hope it works out.

      I would like more of an explanation about the Titans being #6 I don’t understand that one at all. Beyond Haynesworth, what do they have? I would put them down near #15, with the Bills

      @Mark: Well, they were the 9th top scoring defense in the NFL last season in terms of fantasy points, and barring injury or suspension, Haynesworth should be in there for every game this season, boosting them a few spots. Like I said in the introduction though, the difference between most of the defenses is so small that it doesn’t really matter.

    2008 Running Back Power Rankings 

    Power rankings for other positions

    We all know the big question this season is LT or A-Pete, but while constructing this list I realized that after the top 5, the question is “Who the heck do I take?!” How can you justify taking someone like Frank Gore over Tom Brady or Randy Moss? Without falling back on the old “RB first” argument, you’re going to struggle to argue that Gore will have more of an impact on your fantasy team than either of those two. Same goes for Larry Johnson, who last preseason was a top three running back, but is now the Albert Pujols of the draft (i.e. someone you’re so scared to draft because of injury worries, but who could be a monster if he plays to his potential). While this list won’t answer all your questions, hopefully it at least gives you some direction when it comes to deciding what running back to draft!

      Nice list, I definitely will try to keep up with your rankings.

      I’ll make this easy for everyone – whoever gets Adrian Peterson is going to get screwed. There is absolutely no doubt that he’s going to get hurt this year. In fact, I put the over/under on games he plays this year at 9.5 – and I’m taking ‘under’.

      It happened with the “no doubt” pick two years ago (Shaun Alexander) and the “no doubt” pick from last year (Larry Johnson). I am saying that without a doubt AP is going on IR! I also think that Chester Taylor becomes a fifth-round handcuff if you do get AP.

      I definitely like Chester Taylor in or around the 5th round. A-Pete’s likely injury issues coupled with the stellar Vikings o-line make Taylor a major sleeper.

      With Dominic Rhodes coming back, Kenton Keith back there, and newcomer Mike Hart added to a now crowded backfield, I would slide Addai down a slot or two. Not to mention the fact the Brian Westbrook should be #2 on the rankings. AP is getting ranked too high on too many lists.

      Two words: Steve Slaton. Shhhhhhhhhh don’t tell anyone.

      Time for Jonathan Stewart to make a move north on this list! ^

      He’s starting to look a lot better as my RB2. Got him in round 6, might have been a steal, we’ll see.

      No Ray Rice? With all the other injury talk in your rankings, Willis’ back-up gets no love on the list?

      @SM: Good catch…he must have been a victim of the dreaded Cut/Paste. He’s up there now!

      You were HORRIBLE at predicting this years running backs! Disgusting.

      LT? HA
