Info on ADP:
AP already off of crutches: Vikings RB Adrian Peterson spoke with the media Friday and gave an update on his knee following surgery for a torn ACL and MCL. After two weeks he was off of crutches but wore a brace from his ankle to above his knee. He's been riding a stationary bike. In another two weeks he hopes to shed the brace and then continue rehab with a goal of jogging after roughly 10 to 12 weeks. His goal is to be back in time for Week 1 of the 2012 season. "Anything I put my mind to I'm going to accomplish," he said according to the Associated Press. "I'm going to come back better than before."
As much as we'd love to trust Peterson on this one, the reality is that recovery times and rehabilitation from major knee surgeries vary from player to player. Moreover, the ability to come back from such a major knee injury at the same level as before is not a given. We think that until he shows that he'll be back in time for Week 1 and playing at a level at or near what we're used to, he's not worth a first-round choice. Peterson slipped to the second round of our initial mock draft of the year, which might be where he winds up this summer. And it goes without saying that anyone who drafts Peterson must be prepared to spend a seventh-round pick on Toby Gerhart as a handcuff in case AP is not ready to play by Week 1. We'll follow his progress all offseason long.
See, another thing is, i'd wait until the last minute to decide on keepers and it also makes a difference if you have another option close in value to a first rounder you could keep along with the scoring if it favors them.
AP is still worth keeping. He will be fine for next year.
