I also thumbed through the ESPN and NFL.com ones. One headline that grabbed by attention on one of the mags (I can't remember which one) was "The Next Adrian Peterson. (Hint: It's not Darren McFadden)" and when you opened up the magazine, the article was about Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart. 8-o


If you remember, what store did you see the footballguys one at? I've been looking around for one in SE Pa and haven't seen it at major bookstores or grocers.


You can also order the Footballguys.com mag directly from their website.

Sold out online. I finally found it at a Borders bookstore; it was on the magazine shelf with all the other mags, not on their special FF mag display thing.

Stewart isn't the next AD, but he is going to be something special

"AP"...

I will not buy it because of their ignorance. It's "AD" to people with a decent fantasy IQ and have followed him for years. You lost my 5-10 bucks Athlon for being idiots.


It is understandable as fantasy football magazines arent written for people with a decent fantasy IQ. The worthlessness of these publications to geeks like us has already been established in this discussion. These magazines are written for someone that only wants to prepare for their workplace or friends league draft by buying a mag with a cheat sheet in it on their way to the draft to refer too (I used to play in a league with a few of those guys). To those people he is AP.

Even here at the Cafe, there were several people who didn't know why he was called AD last year when it was posted, so it's understandable the magazines would use AP so as not to confuse the average reader.

Sports Illustrated released its "Fantasy football preview" issue (has David Tyree on the cover). They have Turner listed as the 11th best RB this year for fantasy.
