LaDanian, MJD, Forte Rankings

LaDanian has a risk level of GREEN in the Almanac. While both MJD and Forte has a risk level of RED. Is LT low risk because of the Chargers focus on the passing game once again this year? MJD is high risk because of his first time carrying a full load? Forte, because is his drop in ypc at the end of the year and Orton stepping in?

LT is low risk because he has been incredibly durable during his career, even though he had some injuries the past 2 years.

Forte because he has seen too many touches, and is unlikely to go through another season like that without an injury.

MJD : You said it.

Just my 2 cents.

Additional factors:

- KUBIAK is far more confident in the overall excellence of the SD offense than it is in either Chicago's or Jacksonville's.
- Jones-Drew's and Forte's projections are higher than Tomlinson's. It's easier to be confident that a projection will be met when that projection is lower.
