Found July 12, 2013 on We Talk Fantasy Sports:
With so many teams using two running backs these days, snagging Adrian Peterson, Doug Martin or Arian Foster is crucial to a fantasy football championship. Obviously you need a top 3 pick to land one of these guys, but if you end up at the back of the 1st round, make sure you take a RB with your first two picks! Martin is clearly the best PPR running back due to his 49 receptions last season. Guys like Darren Sproles, Rice, McCoy and Trent Richardson caught more passes, but none of them ran for 1400 yards.Really got to love the career move by Reggie Bush to sign with the Detroit Lions. A pass happy team and great hands out of the backfield are lethal, just look at what Sproles can give you and what Joique Bell did for us fantasy owners last season. Bell caught 52 passes while giving way to Mikel Leshoure. Bush should see the majority of the snaps and the fact that Bush was just 14 yards shy of 1000 rushing yards for the Miami Dolphins last season, proves he has finally realized his potential. There are a ton of rookies that will be handling heavy work loads in Pittsburgh, Denver and Green Bay...all playoff hopeful teams. Even Giovani Bernard on the Bengals could take over the workload in Cincinnati come seasons end.

Chris Ivory *- New York JetsOver Ivory's first 3 seasons of the NFL with the Saints, he has totaled just about one seasons worth of statistics. Those stats are good ones too. 256 career carries have gone for 1307 yards, an average of over 5 yards per carry, and ended up in the endzone 8 times. There is little competition to take carries away from Chris and few teams run the ball as much as Rex Ryan's Jets. Either the Jets run blocking is terrible or Shonn Greene is, but either way we will find out come September. - @WeTlkFntsySprts27.) Ryan Mathews - San Diego Chagers28.)
