Crag Index Week 9

First off, I have to apologize.  I have tried my best to maintain innovation and deliver the cutting edge in running back analysis through a statistical indexed rating of all running backs. There are many ways to examine the position but, unlike the quarterback which has it’s own singular rating as well as the Everyday Sports Paparazzi Network’s new rating, the running back is left to the rudimentary statistics. I strive for the cumulative rating that comprehends all the necessary facets of a top tier fantasy running back. All good, but my math was off the last couple weeks for Arian Foster.  He has been the top running back most of the season but he isn’t as far ahead of the league as his Crag has shown. Personally I see this as bush league but I did it and I’m not about to cover it up *cough*Benghazi*cough*.

To correct myself, his Crag for week 8 should have been 84.665 instead of 184.5, for week 7  and 8 (week 8 was his bye) which was still number 1, but week 6 should have been  60.113 instead of 120.55 – which means Ray Rice had him topped in week 6. Everything before week 6 was accurate to the best I can tell at this point (wait for future audits to prove otherwise) and I will attempt to push forward with the most innovative and credulous attempt to statistically analyze the running back position in a way that hasn’t yet been approached. I have been flooded with political mambo jambo so if this is unbearable then just know I am in a ‘battleground state’ and that I promise change for the better. Giddy up and HUZZAH! to week 9’s best try at honesty, the CRAG INDEX!!!!!

Keep in mind that St. Louis, New England, NY Jets and San Francisco held the same index through their bye weeks with no progression and to add to that and your fantasy football hopes you only have two more week of bye’s – almost there. Last week’s rankings are in parenthesis as usual.

The suspense on the Crag Index is back… Who will be the first to 100?!!?!???!
