Lewis rushed for more than 1,000 yards in eight of his 10 NFL seasons, including a 2,066-yard effort with the Ravens in 2003. Lewis also set the single-game rushing record with 295 yards against the Browns in 2003, a record Adrian Peterson broke in 2007.
James and Peyton Manning should eventually join Marvin Harrison in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. James quietly produced prolific numbers during his career. He led the NFL in rushing his first two seasons; the second included 1,709 yards and 13 TDs. He also had five straight 1,000-yard seasons from 2003-07.
Faulk enjoyed an outstanding career between the Colts and Rams, one that included seven 1,000-yard seasons as a rusher and 6,875 yards and 36 TDs receiving. Faulk won MVP honors in 2000 and was the centerpiece of the Greatest Show on Turf along with Kurt Warner, though his best season might have been 1999 when he rushed for 1,381 yards and had 1,048 yards receiving.
Until an edge-rusher slips or the Rams make a move on a starter at cornerback in free agency, the old familiar pick of Jackson is the choice. If the Rams still had a second-round pick, it would be easier to look at a different position. But by the time Los Angeles picks again at No. 87, there won’t be such obvious starters. An edge-rusher like Josh Sweat of Florida State or Kemoko Turay of Rutgers would be interesting Day 3 picks if Robert Quinn gets cut.
If the Panthers happen to lose guard Andrew Norwell in free agency, it opens a big hole on the offensive line. Wynn would fit in perfectly at left guard, and in a pinch he can even play tackle.
Harden is having another historic season. According to Basketball-Reference, he’s on pace to join Oscar Robertson, Michael Jordan and Westbrook as the only players in NBA history to average at least 30.0 points, 8.0 assists and 5.0 rebounds per game in a single season. He’s on pace to become only the seventh player in NBA history to average at least 30.0 points per game on a true shooting percentage of 60.0 percent or greater as well.
Put those qualifiers together, and only Jordan can match what Harden is doing this season.
Anthony Davis won the scoring battle, but Jimmy Butler won the war as the Timberwolves took down the Pelicans 118-107. Davis scored a game-high 38 points and grabbed nine rebounds while Butler had 30 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.
