ESPN.com is releasing their fantasy football rankings today. Yes. I’m serious. So I was asked to write a companion piece for Page 2. Here it is. It’s Bizarro World fantasy football rankings.
2. Cedric Benson, RB, Bengals
When Cedric Benson came into the league out of Texas, he told anyone who would listen that he was not Ricky Williams. And Benson was right: Williams has only had one 1,800-yard season; Benson has hit that mark every year of his career, churning up the field like a runaway ship cutting through marshland. How the Bengals were ever able to pry him away from the Bears, we’ll never know. But Cincinnati isn’t regarded as the best organization in the NFL for nothing.
