Just trying to make final adjustments to my list here -- any thoughts on these 3?

White (Fisher typically gives the load to one RB and White appears to be that guy)
Jackson (very talented but could split time with Morency which is why he's not #1 for me).
Jordan (just can't put him ahead of players on what I feel will be better teams. Further, could split times when Dom Rhodes gets back).

I think Lamont should get a pass for last year. Chalk it upto having the deck stacked against him. I cant see any situation outside of injury where the "young bull" is overtaken by journeyman Dom Rhodes. That cat didn't even look that great last year in the best situation possible.

That said, I'd go
Lamont who will have the job sewn up by week 4
Lendale - he's still a little immature. I can see him getting benched for doing something stupid.

That's how I currently have 'em Greek, after being swayed by preseason young bull Lamont Jordan play.

Agree with Greek and Speed. I've seen enough good things from Lamont this pre-season to go with him (even though drafting a Raider always leaves me somewhat nauseous).

gotta go with lamont here.he finally has a coach who knows how to use him and he has a line which changed to a zone blocking scheme,which definitely fits his style much better.

All three are a reach of a different sort. One common trait is that they all play for teams that are Pre-season Consensus Picks to be at home watching The Post Season Playoffs.
I personally never like it when I am forced to play an RB from a losing team. Only Walter Peyton and Barry Sanders come to mind as Fantasy Producers at RB on bad teams, and they are HALL OF FAMERS!
White showed us something last night, perhaps for the first and last time, that would make him the Titan's starter. But I do not believe he has any dominant upside potential for 2007. In keeper and dynasty leagues he is definately worth a roster spot and low-end RB2 or flex, but who is to say Chris Brown doesn't steal the touches between the twenties and/or Lendale's questioning work ethic re-surfaces before October. Or those nagging injuries. In any event his upside in a perfect world is probably the best of the three. I had him on my salary cap keeper team since college and our rules for re-signing im would have made him too expensive for what he has shown.
LaMont is a Raider. The second negative is that he is on the Raiders offense. The third one is He is a Raider.
Brandon Jackson, even with VM down, is too raw for everydown work but is a "smart" choice in that IF he turns out to be anywhere near the player Ahman Green was for the Pack, he'll have a great second half of the year as the cream rises to the top.

I like Lendale, Lamont, Jackson.

Lendale will be given every opportunity to succeed. Fisher just seems to have soured on Brown.

Lamont, well, I may give him a pass for last season, but Kiffin didn't sign Rhodes to a big offer to sit him.

Jackson is an unknown. I don't think Morency will be back soon, but is Green Bay that good? I am not convinced.

Then again, TN resigned Chris Brown. I don't have the link, but I recently read where Fisher says there will be a RBBC regardless of who is the official starter. That said, I think I'll stack 'em as I had, Lamont, then Lendale, then Jackson.
