According to Kubiak, in a standard PPR scoring system Adrian Peterson is ranked around the 17th RB overall. Even when you ignore the "Risk" adjustment, Adrian Peterson is still only about the 12th RB overall. In my PPR league I have the 12th pick out of 12 (and the 13th pick subsequently) and I firmly believe I have to take one RB with my first two back-to-back picks because of how thin RB is this year. That being said, according to Kubiak Ryan Matthews may have been the guy to take (with MJD and Chris Johnson presumably off the board), but now Matthews is hurt for about 6 weeks. I'm thinking of taking a shot on Adrian Peterson here (and going Welker with the other pick). What does everyone think about taking Adrian Peterson a little earlier than the average draft position says? I think he's worth the risk there, and if not him I'm reaching pretty heavily for Darren McFadden possibly, who is also "Red" for risk. Feedback is greatly appreciated, thanks guys!
