This is absurd!

Postby kingmike74 » Sun Oct 11, 2009 9:08 am

I just got off the phone with my buddy who has been into fantasy for 22 years, even since they had to use pen/paper/newspaper for everything.

He is sitting ADP for Mendenhall, I told him he was nuts and his reasoning is the old philosophy that Minny will get up fast and will turn into the Chester T show.

I have looked at past games and even in games that Taylor gets a bigger workload, ADP still has great days.

What are your thoughts on this? I think Peterson flat goes off! To the tune of 150+ yards and atleast 2 scores, am I wrong?

Could be a classic case of over-managing (and I think it likely is). However, if he's right, you'll have a nice crow dinner :-b

No doubt, I actally just bet him $20 on the deal.

I base all my fantasy decision s on 3 things...1-talent,2-health,3-matchup, and none of these have failed me yet.

ADP is the biggest talent in the game, healthy, and has a dream matchup.

That is absolutely crazy and risky. Thing is, he could be right :-b.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if he goes for 150+ with 3 scores against the Rams.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

So AP MAY have one it, but if he did it wasn't by much at all...

Mendy - 93 total yards, 1 TD (PPR - 2 Rec)

AP - 75 total yards, 2 TDs (PPR - 2 Rec)

If they didn't yank Peterson, he could have had that 3rd touchdown on the goalline when Taylor took it in for 1 yard.

Yeah it was pretty close. I'm really surprised Mendy only got 13 carries. If he had 26 like last game I think he could've had the same stat line. Well, he would have.

Oh, I know, I know. That's the same as saying if Mike Sims-Walker wasn't an idiot, he could have had 9 catches for 126 yards and 2 TDs, but what are ya gunna do.
