Ray Rice at #1 ?!?

Postby TheGhost » Tue Sep 06, 2011 1:15 pm

10 teams, PPR, 6 points for all TD's. Seriously thinking about taking Ray Rice over Adrian Peterson and Arian Foster... am I crazy?

Not crazy... but I think you got to go with Peterson. He's been the back that's most consistently in the top 3 of his position in the last 4 years. Never had less than 10 TD's and 4 straight years with 1300 plus yards rushing (last year was 1298) and he's not bad in PPR either.

Granted Ray Rice is supposed to get an increase in the GL work this season and has Vonta Leach blocking as full back.... but I still think you just got to take All-Day Peterson.

Not crazy at all, especially in a PPR league, took him 4th in my league, but would have easily drafted him ahead of Foster and Charles, would really have to think about him and AP

If its a PPR league I would take Ray Rice.

If it's a standard scoring league, you have to go with All Day AP. He is one of the most consistent fantasy players out there.

I think the tipping point for me after already knowing it's a PPR league... Baltimore's offensive line is supposed to be a lot better then Minnesota's (I think.) LOL

You can't go wrong either way. Rice may wind up with more points if he gets the goal line carries but he still hasn't proven during the season he can score from the 2.

For me foster is out of the question and AP and Rice are to close to call. I guess AP because his schedule looks really good, while Rice has a few tuff games.

I would go Rice #1, the added goal line carries and PPR puts it over the top.
