If you took a chance last year on Adrian Peterson’s knee, you won the lottery of all fantasy football drafts. Not only did Peterson come back strong as the top fantasy running back, he blew away his competition. AP nearly broke Eric Dickerson’s record of 2,105 rushing yards in a season, falling just 8 yards shy of history. He was the crown for fantasy owners and led many to the championship with dominant performances every week. Now we look towards 2013, and things could still get better. Peterson was the lone threat for Minnesota last year after Percy Harvin went down, as QB Christian Ponder was hardly a threat to any defense. While Ponder remains the starter, Minnesota did bring in Greg Jennings from the Packers and drafted Tennessee receiver Cordarrelle Patterson. Jennings should give Ponder a true No.1 receiver while Patterson can play a similar type role to what Harvin provided. Adrian Peterson is the best fantasy player in the game, if you have the No.1 pick you take him. I think you can expect another 2,000+ yard season from All Day and 10-12 touchdowns.
