For those of us who have become fantasy football fanatics, the next couple months will become so full of conversation and arguments over the merits of our particular predictions that wives across the country will be yearning for Sept. 10 to arrive, if only to shut us all up.
The exception is those of you blessed enough to have a wife as equally fanatical.
This series is my contribution to the crescendo.
To make my predictions digestible I will dissect one position and conference at a time. Since I am doing it in this manner, I will limit my picks to the top five. Once the series is complete we will have a solid foundation on which to build a championship fantasy team.
I have placed Adrian Peterson on the front of this slide show as he is the cream of the crop, when discussing running backs. This is regardless of the conference.
The first installment in the series are 2009's top five running backs from the National Football Conference.
