Last week, we took a look at quarterbacks. This week, I wanted to take a gander at running backs. Two experts, Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard rank running backs in the NFL. Cedric Benson ranked tenth and ninth respectively.

Benson's Fantasy Analysis:

Benson rushed for a career-high 1,251 yards last season and the Bengals are hoping for a repeat performance in 2010. If Benson can stay healthy and out of trouble, there is no reason why Fantasy owners shouldn't expect the same -- if not better -- numbers from Benson this year. Cincinnati has more offensive weapons in the passing game, which could open the door for more yards for Benson. He should be viewed as a low-end No. 1 Fantasy RB on Draft Day.

Here's's Fantasy Football ranks for Running back.

  Jamey Eisenberg Dave Richard
1 Chris Johnson Chris Johnson
2 Adrian Peterson Adrian Peterson
3 Maurice Jones-Drew Maurice Jones-Drew
4 Ray Rice Michael Turner
5 Michael Turner Ray Rice
6 Frank Gore Frank Gore
7 Steven Jackson Steven Jackson
8 DeAngelo Williams DeAngelo Williams
9 Shonn Greene Cedric Benson
10 Cedric Benson Rashard Mendenhall

Agree. Disagree. Indifferent? Should Benson be considered a better pick up than tenth and ninth respectively?
