RB Adrian Peterson NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings
2009 Fantasy Year In Review: For all the great numbers Adrian Peterson posted last season it seems people kept talking about his low rushing yardage and fumbles. While Peterson did run for under 1,400 yards, he did improve his reception total to 43 catches for 436 yards.
Beyond the increase in receiving, Peterson also dramatically improved his touchdown total from 10 in 2008 to 18 in 2009. Those numbers are great but Peterson was expected to do the phenomenal like Chris Johnson did. Anything shorter than that was considered by many as a let down for the top pick in many fantasy football drafts last season.
2010 NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings: The Vikings’ division is starting to become troubling for Peterson as the Lions and Bears have upgraded on the defensive line this offseason. Peterson already has the 12 hardest schedule against the run this year and these two teams improving against the run can’t help his numbers.
Beyond that, I’m a little concerned that rookie Toby Gerhart may take away some goal line opportunities as he is built to pickup those tough short yardage plays.
That said, if Peterson gets Brett Favre back this season it will go a long way to insuring, he is a true fantasy stud once again in 2010. With a great quarterback like Favre defenses can’t focus on the running game as much and that will lead to big play opportunities for Peterson.
