With only four games this afternoon, and one of them featuring the top two defenses in the NFL, I don’t expect a lot of action between 4 and 8pm EST.

Wow, I have to say, I totally missed this one… I generally have a policy in fantasy. I stay away from rookie running backs. It just seems to me that they are way too succeptible to injury…and, well, they typically underperform…. I do recall how I won a league LT’s rookie year after his break-out weeks #1 and 2… but, that’s another story.
Forward the clock to 2007… I stayed away from Peterson… and boy am I sorry… 5 100 yd+ games – and, well, what he did to the Bears yesterday was simply wrong. So, do you think he will be a top five pick next year? I would say … more than likely. His rookie status is not the only reason I stayed away from him… I just don’t typically buy into the Vikings running game. This is, generally, a good policy… just not this season.
