That's tough..

1) LaDainian Tomlinson
2) Steven Jackson
3) Larry Johnson
4) Adrian Peterson
5) Could be anyone from Gore, Westbrook, Portis or McGahee IMO

Then theres like, 10 guys that could go anywhere.

Take out Larry Johnson, he is already on his way down.

The List should be :
1. LT
2. Steven Jackson
3. Adrian Peterson
4. Westbrook
5. Marion Barber

Willie Parker would have led the league in rushing had he not broken his leg. I know that leaves a big question mark on him, but prior to the injury I think he should at least belong in the top 5.

^Replace Barber with Gore or Jackson and your list looks good.

Fixed

Jackson is in the top 3 RB's, (IMO) Hands Down.

I think you list would look better if it was:

1-LT
2-Steven Jackson
3-AP
4-Westbrook
5-Barber

Well two things about that. For one thing, he was only averaging 4.1 ypc which is more about bulk than anything. (It put him at 25th on ypc among qualified RBs)

Second, what about Adrian Peterson? He missed 2 games in the middle of the season. In a scenario where neither gets hurt and misses a couple games (im just gonna say two whole games with willie as well since he had 1 attempt in the game he was injured), Peterson beats him out.
If you factor in that they decided to rest him for the second half of his first game back and look at how he already had torn up that D for over 100 yards, it would be even moreso.

It doesnt really matter, I'm just saying if youre going to do a what if with one guys injury, shouldnt you include another guy who was his competition and missed the same amount of games?

The top 5 running backs change from year to year more so than any other position. The top 15 running backs all have a legit shot to be the top 5 running backs in any given year. I'd rank the backs like this:

1.Lt
2.Westbrook
3.Steven Jackson
4.Joseph Addai
5.Adrian Peterson

I will never forgive Jackson for talking me into taking him with the second pick of FF last season...actually I traded Gore for him since he was so hyped up about the season and talked smack.....Burn in hell, jackson, burn in hell!!!
