Steven Jackson had a monster first year as a starter. Last year, not so good.
I'm putting Peterson in the same boat as Cadillac Williams was in 2006. He was a beast but wear and tear took its toll. I just think people who pick him up will be dissapointed come November.
I agree to an extent, Peterson is good though and worthy of being a 1st round fantasy pick. But I don't expect his numbers to match last years. An under the radar back to look out for (imo) is Marshawn Lynch from the Bills. Last year his last 4 games were better than APs. But he has some pending possible legal troubles from a hit and run. So buyer beware, but if he plays he'll be good.
lynch has great line too. if he isnt suspended he's a top 10 player. i just dont see why people want to hate on petereson. he should be #1 overall no question.
how can you take lt when he is coming off a decent sized knee injury and he is getting older? i took lt #1 over lj and shaun two years ago when they were the consensus top two overall. lt had his record breaking season that year. when you have #1 overall you have to take someone who can absolutely explode
