Vote: 2008 Regular Season Fantasy Football Running Back of the Year

With most leagues closing out the fantasy football regular season after week 14, it's time vote for your 2008 Fantasy football regular season movers and shakers. I will post the results for the Fantasy MVP, Fantasy Rookie of the Year, and 2008 All-Fantasy team on Saturday Dec. 13th, 2008.

The Finalists:
Micheal Turner (Falcons) 

Micheal Turner has been awesome in his first year in Atlanta.  He has been the best running back in Fantasy Football this season.

Matt Forte, RB (Bears)

The Bears were horrible on the ground last season. Enter Matt Forte. Forte has been one of the best running backs in the NFL this season. He has been a monster for fantasy owners. He'll likely be a top 10 draft pick in most fantasy leagues next year.

Adrian Peterson, RB (Vikings)

There was no sophomore slump for Viking running back Adrian Peterson. He showed that his breakout rookie year in '07 was no fluke. Peterson has been a delight for Fantasy owners, many of whom took home early in the first round

DeAngelo Williams, RB (Panthers)

After starting slow out of the gate, Williams was able to wrestle the starting job from rookie back Jonathan Stewart. Since then Williams has been nothing short of amazing.  His second half alone warrants his consideration for best fantasy running back of the year.
