Do I Dare bench Peterson?

Postby Vincent Gabriele » Sat Oct 22, 2011 9:57 pm

I've got Adrian Peterson, Ernest Graham, and Ryan Torian. Torain's matchup is great, but I'm pissed at/scared of him from last week. Graham is just about a sure thing for a solid game (he's in). And then there's Peterson. He obviously has potential every week to have a huge game but this week, against the Pack, I'm sure the Vikings (as bad as they've been playing & with a rookie quarterback) might have to play from behind the majority of the game. This makes him very hit or miss.

So essentially the question is do I play the matchup and go with Ryan Torain over Adrian Peterson? WHIP

No. If you bench AP for Torrian, you deserve to lose! Seriously. Especially if you bench him for Torrian, who may or may not split carries with Hightower or Helu. With Mike Shannanhan you never know! I repeat, do NOT bench AP.

I hope you're kidding, lol.

I'd still go Peterson. He's still a much better RB.
and since Vikings can't pass the ball to save their lives, choose Peterson. I wouldn't EVER bench him, unless on a bye week.

I realize it sounds crazy. I just have a feeling it's going to be the same situation as last week for Peterson, if not worse. Where he got only 12 carries because they were playing from behind the whole game.
