1. LESEAN McCoy leading the league in rushing through 3 games, 395 yards!
2. A.P. all day... 285 yards rushing
3. Jamal Charles... slightly better production than Lynch..
4. the Bulldozer .... Mr. runeth over.. Lynch
5. last pick, kinda different, I guess... Demarco Murray... Already toppled the Cowboy's most rushing yards in a game, last year, I believe, and as of right now, has 286 yards rushing. Murray's a BIG REASON the Cowboys are leading their division, muscle Hampster can't get the engine turning for the 0-3 Bucs.
So, "as of right now", those are my picks..

But of given the chance to have either McCoy or Peterson on your team, don't you kinda have to take Peterson? Even if McCoy has led the NFL in rushing to this point, doesn't it seem more likely that from here on out Peterson can and/or will out rush McCoy?
I love Shady. He's one of my favorite players. I love watching him, I consider him untouchable in fantasy, he's probably top three in non-Cowboys for me as far as players I enjoy watching or root for.
But Peterson is better. He's my favorite non-Cowboy. The best player to watch in football, in my opinion, because he's so good at what he does. He has to be number one, in my opinion. 2,097 yards is hard to argue with, and it was just last season.
Charles is another player I like but I have to rank him below Lynch. Marshawn Lynch is perhaps the most consistent player in football while Charles is a great player but an injury risk every time he plays. Lynch's perpetual availability makes him the more reliable and ultimately better player.
Murray is another guy you cant count on and always seems to miss games due to injury. Martin has been reliable and productive so far in his young career.

McCoy has younger legs. ha McCoy can cut and take off. McCoy's got moves like the late Michael Jackson with a linebacker in his face. Sure, AP can still turn on the "jets", and run you over, but McCoy, I think he's more athletic. McCoy can catch in the backfield. He's an all-around player. I think McCoy's about to TAKE OFF. By far one of the most entertaining backs to see in the league right now.
I get that Murray's injury prone, but what if he could stay a full season healthy? What then?
Muscle Hampsters fun to watch, and I'll give it to him, he's not far behind my top 5 pack, probably #6 or 7, but I need to see more, more than the Dougie played on the Raiders last year.
Jamal Charles, speedster... wow... a little bit of a wussie up the middle, but he can tear you up on the outside. lol #dirtyminds.... He also can CATCH and go. oh snap. lol
let me argue later hahahaha

I really don't have anything negative to say about McCoy. All I can say is that in my opinion Adrian Peterson has earned the benefit of the doubt. McCoy has been phenomenal so far, and if he can keep it up he will prove me wrong. I just think he'll get hurt. He's a smallish running back, unlike the bigger, tougher Peterson.
Although we agree that Peterson and McCoy are the top two RBs, Marshawn Lynch should be number three. Lynch is consistently one of the NFL's top running backs statistically, and is currently the lynchpin of the Super Bowl favorite Seahawks offense. His game isn't pretty therefore he is severely underrated but besides Peterson and McCoy you won't find a better RB in football. Lynch's year to year statistics and the overall effectiveness of the Seahawks' run-heavy offense prove his value.
I like DeMarco Murray. I root for him as a Cowboys fan. But I don't trust him at all. Seems like he's never available and on the rare occasions he does actually happen to play he's usually limited to some degree. Unless Dallas is playing the Rams, in which case Murray looks like Walter Payton. But that's not the point. He isn't on the field much; Doug Martin is.
