    Thanks big time. I honestly don't know how I screwed that one up.

    First off, Justice Hill is pedestrian compared to several of the backs on this list. Having him and Rodney Anderson ranked ahead of JK Dobbins is just ridiculous.

    Secondly, why the hell is Najee Harris on this list? 370 yards and 3 TDs is enough to land you at 16, even though he still isn't going to start this year? FOH.

    There's talk about Harris getting pissed about not getting enough playing time at Bama so I was a bit surprised to see him listed also ... but then again Bama's QB didn't play much and he's listed as a top 5 QB on just about every site.

    I actually don't hate him, he's a good talent, but having him on the list in general, and especially only 3 spots behind Damien Harris is silly. I was really bummed when Damien went back to school, I wanted him on the Browns bad. He should be top 5 on this list IMO.

    I mean, Dobbins is better than Hill and Anderson. I don't know how one can argue that.

    I'm just glad he went to Bama and didn't end up at USC. That kid was a beast in high school.

    I was pissed when he went to Bama over OSU, but I understood. I was just thrilled when he de-committed from michigan, those ass clowns.

    I think Damien is gonna show out this season assuming they give him the carries. Dude averages like 7.5 ypc just has had to split time a little too much for my liking. He had 1000 yds. & 11 tds last season and only had double digit carries in 5 games, 19 being the high. He's one hell of person off the field too.

    It was so stupid that they had him splitting carries with Scarborough. He genuinely could've led the nation in rushing if that wasn't the case. I bet he rips it up this year, too, and winds up in the first round next year.

    Not so sure on Anderson. The season will play that out.

    I mean, Dobbins turned 6 more carries into 240 more yards, and he did it playing tougher defenses throughout the year. If Anderson played for some team like Purdue, you know you'd agree without hesitation.

    There’s more to it than carries. Anderson had better receiving stats and way more touchdowns. Add to that the fact that he didn’t even get in gear till after the Texas game. His last 6 games of the year absolutely nobody came close to his level of production. And don’t forget he absolutely went off against Georgia.

    TDs are incidental. Mike Weber had more TDs than Dobbins last year on OSU and Dobbins was a way better RB outside of one game.

    Also, Anderson had a 6.1 YPC average over his final 6 games. He had some fantastic performances and some duds. I don't know where you get that those numbers are untouchable or something. In Dobbins' final 6 games, he averaged 6.6 YPC facing similar competition.

    Dobbins is an absolute beast yet only ran for like 70 yards against our terrible defense. Anderson took him bout half a season to finally get comfortable (especially from the broken neck) and started blowing folks up once he finally got comfortable. You really can’t go wrong with both. Both will have monster seasons IMO.
