0% chance I'd take Blount over Turner. Other than that, I like this list a lot. 1 other thing, I like Williams, and I think he's going to be very good, for a very long time, I just don't know if I could take him as my #2 WR from the NFC South. I know Colston has been down of late, but that dude catches everything. That's a really tough call.

White and Colston over Mike Williams for me.

I'm not as big a Turner fan as I once was. He does not have that explosiveness anymore. Blount does. I read a stat where Blount was the top rusher over the 2nd half of the season or something like that.

Over the last 8 games of the season:

Turner had 677 yards on 179 carries for an avg. of 3.78

Blount had 739 yards on 145 carries for an avg. of 5.09

Charles had 748 yards on 117 carries for an avg. of 6.39

Foster had 752 yards on 170 carries for an avg. of 4.42


Don't have time now, but Blount might have led over the last 10 games of the season.

I'll still take Turner over Blount at this point. It's by no means a big lead, but let's see how Blount handles a full years load first. His running style would be concerning to me as a Bucs fan.

But I fully agree on Turner. He's very overrated around these parts. He's a good RB for sure. But we are going to make sure he gets his touches, and he runs behind a good run blocking line. And the best FB in football. He's going to put up some numbers. But as DK said, the explosiveness has been zapped. There's no second gear and he doesn't seem as willing to just plow people over. He just finds his hole and falls forward at this point really.

I agree that for now it is Turner > Blount. Blount has great potential and I could definitely see him being a Turner style runner in the NFL.

I dont get who would put ryan over brees, freeman maybe but the 0.3 yards per attempt that ryan has really rubs me the wrong way.

I'd take Turner over Blount, although Blount breaks more big runs which is a huge plus. Blount needs to learn how to be a short-yardage back before he enters Michael Turner territory. Turner is a beast in the red zone, Blount is a non-factor.

I think a big portion of Turner's downfall has been Mike Mularkey. He calls the same 4 plays all game long, makes it impossible to run really. The Falcons are having to overcome not only the opposing defense, but we're having to out play our offensive coordinator's play calls. We have a promising young QB, and we have a very solid squad, minus a #2 WR which we are really lacking at.

But I think that's why you don't see as many big runs from Turner. He does seem a bit slow to the hole, but a lot of the time I think it's just him being patient, other times I have visions of TJ Duckett flashing in my head. But until Blount proves he can do it with people gameplanning for him, then we'll see.

I think Blount is Brandon Jacobs 2.0

Except that Blount isn't a woman.

Brandon Jacobs is the weakest runner in the NFL, pound for pound.
