Week 2 Running Back Crag Index

The Crag Index is designed to take into account a player’s opportunities to succeed in scoring fantasy points.  Several numbers are incorporated in an attempt to provide the most thorough breakdown of playing situation while analyzing current record of success.  It’s been too long that quarterbacks have their own rating while the rest of the talent gets left behind.

One week wonders (Andre Brown and Jackie Battle) can drop fast with a poor follow up (see Shonn Greene).  The backs that compete at higher rates will have a higher Crag as the year wears on.
