Tomlinson KUBIAK Ranking

Hey all, I'm a bit surprised by LT's high ranking on KUBIAK considering his age and recent injury history. Is the ranking just due to the overall optimism on SD or is there some other factor I'm missing that shows he can perform at a high level this year? Draft is tonight and with the 7th pick, I'm in full panic mode.

I'd say it's a combination of being high on SD and high on him. There are others out there saying he has one more top-5 finish left in him. He wouldn't be a bad pick at 7, and there is the WR option if you're skeptical of all of the remaining RBs.

Tomlinson could have one more top season in him, or he could be done. His numbers weren't great last year, and if you watched him play he was aging on the field. That being said, he was still a consideration for my draft (I had #2 pick, PPR league), but I ended up going with MJD. He went #5 in my draft.

At #7, you should have your pick of any receiver you want if you are worried.

I'm drafting 8th and I've taken him off my board for that round. I hear a lot of people talking him up, so I think he's overvalued to begin with even if he had good health and was 29 instead of 30. And then on top of that I hear people rationalizing about how he's different than all those other guys who fell off the table @ 30...

I'll take him @ 13, but not at 8.
