Top 50 For 10-Team Standard Leagues

Photo By: Geoff Burke / US PRESSWIRE

In a ten team standard scoring league, you will have fifty players come off the board, five rounds through the draft. Maybe you won’t miss the playoffs should you miss step in these round, but you better find some sleepers late in your draft and find some waiver gems.

Even with that it’s likely you will struggle early in the season because of the investment you have in your top five transactions. That is to say, a fantasy owner will tend to start his top five picks through the first month of the season, even if they’ve had a few bad games.

With this in mind I wanted to go over one running back I find troubling according to recent ADP trends, from Fantasy Football Calculator.

Adrian Peterson Still Working His Way Back From Injury

Peterson was activated from the PUP a couple of weeks ago, but don’t get this twisted to believe that he will be back to his pre-injury form, any time soon. The Vikings star tailback will miss out on preseason action.

On the positive side, coaching staff is expected to up his participation in practice to actually partaking in contact drills.

A good sign for sure and while I’m optimistic Peterson will return to a RB1 value by mid-season, I question if he is worth using  in ten team leagues starting lineups, until sometime in October?

No one can say with certainty what Peterson’s role will be in the Vikings offense early on, but wouldn’t you agree the franchise would be wise to ease him back into action?

I mean, if you signed a running back last September for 100 million dollars and he shattered his knee in December, you probably wouldn’t want him to comeback early and hurt himself again, would you?

It only makes sense to use Toby Gerhart more in the early going, as the Vikings are going to finish dead last in one of the harder division in the league.

With this in mind I can’t help but recommend fantasy owners avoid Peterson until around the fifth round. If that means you pass on him this year, then by all means do so.

If you have him on your roster, it means taking him with one of the top twenty picks in your draft. You will want to start him as soon as he finds the field, but if he should start out slow it could easily cost you wins.

This would lead to a frustrating situation and uncertainty as to when you will ever see the true AllDay stand up and perform not only the way we know he can, but the way you drafted him to produce as; an elite player in your starting lineup.
