I'd remove Forte from the equation. 35 TD in 6 seasons. Longest run last 3 seasons was 55 yards.
Peterson has scored double-digit TD in every season in the NFL. Rips off a 64-yard run or longer in 6 of 7 seasons.
Calvin Johnson has 45 TD in the last 4 seasons. Longs of 87, 73, 53, 87 past four years.
I'd rank it AP (too much value to pass up at #5), Megatron, Forte.

also thoughts on my mock team (10 man league):
I wouldn't trust Gerhart as a RB2, more so a Flex option. Even with a heavier workload, he's never ran for more than 531 yards in a season. Plus he's not known to rip off long-yardage runs.
Sankey I like as a low-end RB2 or Flex choice. He has every opportunity to flourish in Tennessee with Johnson gone, I just wonder how his size and running style will translate to the NFL. I like Terrance West better, although his conditioning is alarming.
Decker is strong in the Flex, even without Peyton Manning. 33 TD last 3 seasons. He's far and away the best WR the Jets have. Geno Smith seems serious about improving and getting Deck the football.
When you go Jimmy that early, you leave yourself vulnerable at RB2.
