Here is your job: Rank these running backs in order.
Here is my order: Barber, Gore, Portis, Johnson, Lynch, McGahee and Grant.
Just looking at what Barber did last year in a limited role -- 975 yards and 10 touchdowns and 44 catches for 282 yards and two touchdowns -- allowed him to finish as the No. 7 Fantasy RB in a standard scoring league. And now, Julius Jones is gone to Seattle.
Barber only had 204 carries in 2007, which ranked No. 21 in the NFL. If he can approach 300 carries and continue his 4.8-yards per carry average, he could be among the Top 5 or better this year. Because of his upside, he tops this list and makes him the No. 6 Fantasy RB in my mind right now.
