      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Rankings of Fantasy RBs

Recommended Posts

Scott M

Well, I finished runner up two consecutive years in salcap FF. Two years ago I rode LT like a horse, then he slumped at Larry Johnson blew up in the last 4-6 games. This last year, I reversed course and took LJ for a full 16 games, and watched LT set the single season touchdown record. This year I don't know who to take. Any predictions?

I'll start with a top dozen + 1

1) LT (Too consistent to be anywhere else)

2) Steven Jackson (Coming on strong!)

3) Larry Johnson (Hopefully the O line is a little better)

4) Frank Gore (Really coming on Strong but broke his hand)

5) Shaun Alexander (still solid)

6) Joe Addai (getting better and better, quite a playoff run)

7) Willie Parker (Run first Steelers)

8) Rudi Johnson (Very consistent last few years)

9) Laurence Maroney (More carries w/o Dillon and Moss to spread field)

10) Ronnie Brown (Should be more consistent and get the ball more, good line and fullback)

11) Willis McGahee (Baltimore likes to run it all day)

12) Reggie Bush (adjusted to the NFL, great playmaker, also get special teams points)

13) Maurice Jones-Drew (ended strong last season, should get most of the carries)

Steven Jackson will be beast. Maroney is also a great pick.

What about Westbrook?

I left him out cause he hasn't had 1,000 yards and always seems to get hurt. But he definately comes to mind. Should be a middle round solid pick in H2H leagues.

I think Jackson, Gore, and Jones-Drew are going to explode this year. This is my last year keeping Jackson in a keeper league.

Thomas Jones and Kevin Jones will be good picks this year as well.

Kevin Jones is coming back from a Lisfranc foot fracture which can be career threatening. I heard when he initially injured it he may not even play this year. Lately I have heard that he may play but I'm not holding my breath on him. But I do agree that Thomas Jones should be a good RB this year, he should be a good #2 RB on a fantasy team.

I'm in two leagues and both league champs had Westbrook last year. When healthy, he's easilly a top 7 back.

Seems like Maroney should have a huge year. NE likes to run the ball in the red zone and with defenses chasing Moss, Stallworth, Welker, etc. around the field there should be plenty of running room.

What do you guys think of Brandon Jacobs?

Westbrook is kind of dependent on your scoring system. If you reward yards, Westbrook will give you good points...rushing and receiving...every week, with a few TD thrown in. In that case, he needs consideration as a top RB.

If your scoring system is tilted more heavily toward TD, then Westbrook moves down quite a few slots.

Jacobs in a TD heavy leauge will be one of the best. Yardage heavy, probably not as good.

Lots of experts saying he's too big and reckless not to get hurt.

I think losing Tiki Barber is going to hurt them a lot. He was great all purpose back and I'm not sure Jacob's battering ram style is going to work as an every down back.

Sure, he looked good knocking people over from one yard out, but Tiki did all the work to get them down there.

What kind of year do you think Maroney will have? I find it strange that Addai is forecasted as a top five pick and Maroney not until the second round. They both play in elite offenses and don't have to split carries. Is it the injury risk that lowers Maroney's value?

In the mock drafts I've looked at so far Addai has gone late in the first round. I think NE's aquisition of Moss has something to do with it and also Maroney had 745 yds and 6TD's where Addai had 1081 yds and 7 TD's rushing last year. Also Addai might have slightly better hands, and the surgically repaired shoulder of Maroney defenitly doesnt help him in the rankings.

I think he'll have a great year though with Moss and Stallworth, not to mention Brown and Caldwell spreading out the defense.

      The wife and I were up to L O W  for whole week. Great weather, good fishing and fun time. Was able to fish 7 days split up between Morris point, Long point and the river. For me Long point was the better bite. May have seen a couple members of outdoors Mn on Tuesday out of LP. Let me know if I'm right. Also met member from Wisc. at Morris point( real good guy) Anyway didn't seem to matter much what color jig caught them on every color with frozen shiner. Some days were better then others but always caught fish. Ate several meals of fish and brought fish home. Also caught a 14 in perch that I brought into taxidermist. Plan on going back at least one more time this fall . ( Too good not to).

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.
