Regarding the rankings above, Ty Montgomery would be the last RB I would be willing to trust as my every week starter regardless of match-up.  After him, the last RB I would be willing to have as my starter would be Doug Martin.  Anyone listed between Doug Martin and (including) Jonathan Stewart should only be used for bye weeks or based on favorable match-ups.  These rankings were made assuming the following format: 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 2 FLEX, 1 K, 1 Def, 6 bench slots, 0.5 PPR, 4 pt passing TDs, and otherwise standard scoring.  It is recommended to add your own tiers for use during your draft.  Studs are listed in bold print.
