That's good value even for a rookie RB. Were the other 9 teams drafted by deeray? :-D


:-b :-b

Seriously though, that is good value and I would have taken him there. Contrary to popular belief, I don't hate McFadden or think he will be a total bust. I just believe he is being overvalued because everyone believes he will be the next AD, and that is just not true. In a PPR I would take him at the end of the 5th if he was there.

In a 10 team league I took DMF with the 9th pick in the 7th round. Also got Kevin Smith from Detroit with the 9th pick in the 11th round. I could be going out on a limb here with 2 rookie RBs but I could not ignore the value I was getting. Gimme your thoughts...

I got him about half way through the 6th round (pick #55) of a ten team redraft PPR league. He was drafted as my 4th Rb, or OFlex. If he even comes close to all the hype, I will be very happy. If not, I haven't been burned too bad. And, I'm cool with that.

Peterson's nickname is A.D., which stands for his childhood moniker of All Day (as in, "he can run All Day").


He received it when he was like 8 years old. NFL and Fantasy announcers and reporters dumbed it down for idiots when he got to the NFL. People who use "ADP" or "AP" are not in the know. His only correct nickname is AD.
