The offensive line is an underrated part of an NFL team. Run Blocking and Pass Blocking are separate entities but must co-exist if a team wants to be successful.

Without a good O-line running backs struggle, quarterbacks get sacked and wide receivers are stuck running routes with no hope of the ball ever reaching them.

Take a look at Dave B’s Offensive Line rankings and make your fantasy Draft choices based on the findings.

1. New Orleans Saints – The Saints are that rare unit that can run block for a committee of running backs, keep their quarterback upright and open lanes for their undersized quarterback to throw the ball.

Projected Starters

LT Jermon Bushrod, 4th Year
LG Carl Nicks, 3rd Year
C Jonathan Goodwin, 9th Year
RG Jahri Evans, 5th Year
RT Jonathan Stinchcomb, 8th Year

2. Tennessee Titans – Somehow the Titans only ranked 21st last season in run blocking! With Chris Johnson rumbling for 2000+ yards it is hard to believe. Strangely, the same unit ranked 3rd in pass blocking. I think that this unit is better than the numbers indicate and will be huge this season.

Projected Starters

LT Michael Roos, 6th Year
LG Eugene Amano, 7th Year
C Leroy Harris, 4th Year
RG Jake Scott, 7th Year
RT David Stewart, 6th Year

3. Baltimore Ravens – This unit was responsible for one of the most feared rushing games in the NFL last season. They were average in pass protection but some of that can be attributed to the struggles of Joe Flacco in the pocket.

Projected Starters

LT Michael Oher, 2nd Year
LG Ben Grubbs, 4th Year
C Matt Birk, 13th Year
RG Chris Chester, 5th Year
RT Jared Gaither, 4th Year

4. New England Patriots – Too high? Consider that the Pats gave up the third fewest sacks last season and did an OK job with a rag tag bunch of rushers out of the backfield. The O-line is a strength and will only look better if Tom Brady is back to form this season.

Projected Starters

LT Matt Light, 10th Year
LG Dan Connolly, 5th Year
C Dan Koppen, 8th Year
RG Stephen Neal, 9th Year
RT Nick Kaczur, 6th Year

5. New York Jets – The Jets had the best running game in the NFL last season. They also gave up the fewest sacks. They were one of the best all around units last season and there’s no reason to think differently this year. The loss of Alan Faneca might hurt but it’s not debilitating.

Projected Starters

LT D’Brickashaw Ferguson, 5th Year
LG Vlad Ducasse Rookie
C Nick Mangold, 5th Year
RG Brandon Moore, 8th Year
RT Damien Woody, 12th Year

6. Indianapolis Colts – The best pass blockers in the game, the Indianapolis Offensive line may look better than they are. They are a cohesive unit whose running game has let them down in the past. Look for the running game to improve this season and Indy’s offensive line to be in an elite category once again.

Projected Starters

LT Tony Ugoh, 4th Year
LG Andy Alleman, 4th Year
C Jeff Saturday, 12th Year
RG Kyle DeVan, 2nd Year
RT Ryan Diem, 10th Year

7. Dallas Cowboys – They are the biggest unit, by far, in the NFL who were responsible for the league’s second best yards per carry last season. Flozell Adams is gone and Alex Barron is in. The Cowboys should win a lot of games this season, taking some of the pressure off the enormous line.

Projected Starters

LT Doug Free, 4th Year
LG Kyle Kosier, 9th Year
C Andre Gurode, 9th Year
RG Leonard Davis, 10th Year
RT Marc Colombo, 9th Year

8. Miami Dolphins – the Fins Offensive line was great last year, allowing the team a league best 22 rushing touchdowns. A few key acquisitions on offense make this team better and the O-line will benefit big time.

Projected Starters

LT Jake Long, 3rd Year
LG Richie Incognito, 6th Year
C Jake Grove, 7th Year
RG Nate Garner, 3rd Year
RT Vernon Carey, 7th Year

9. New York Giants – This is a talented bunch that fell victim to injury last season. Pro Bowlers David Diehl, Chris Snee, and Shaun O’Hara are still there. If the O-line can stay healthy and the running backs can return to form, this is an elite squad once again.

Projected Starters

LT David Diehl, 8th Year
LG Rich Seubert, 10th Year
C Shaun O’Hara, 11th Year
RG Chris Snee, 7th Year
RT Kareem McKenzie, 10th Year

10. Minnesota Vikings – If the rankings were on run blocking alone, the Vikes would be at the top of the list. Last year’s playoffs exposed the weak pass protection of Minnesota. If they can somehow improve against the pass rush, the Vikings are a Top 5 unit.

Projected Starters

LT Bryant McKinnie, 9th Year
LG Steve Hutchinson, 10th Year
C John Sullivan, 3rd Year
RG Anthony Herrera, 7th Year
RT Phil Loadholt, 2nd Year

11. Cleveland Browns
12. Denver Broncos
13. Carolina Panthers
14. Cincinnati Bengals
15. Green Bay Packers
16. San Francisco 49ers
17. Philadelphia Eagles
18. Atlanta Falcons
19. Houston Texans
20. Chicago Bears
21. San Diego Chargers
22. Arizona Cardinals
23. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
24. St. Louis Rams
25. Washington Redskins
26. Detroit Lions
27. Pittsburgh Steelers
28. Seattle Seahawks
29. Oakland Raiders
30. Kansas City Chiefs
31. Jacksonville Jaguars
32. Buffalo Bills

The offensive line is more important to a great team than the great QB or the game breaking running back because without that solid quintet up front no player on offense can succeed consistently, even a kicker. Just because your league doesn’t reward pancake blocks doesn’t mean the big uglies don’t count. Remember that FF guru’s, and you’ll win your league this year.

    Thanks….our bad

    Thanks for the rankings. I’ve come to same conclusion about offensive lines and fantasy superstars, and have been combing the internet for some help.

    I’ve also been looking for top O-line coaches and players to keep track of once the season starts and free agency finally happens.
