I have never been so wrong about a player in my 20+ years off fantasy. I screamed from the mountaintops that he would not be the same this season and was a 4th round pick at best. I am officially eating crow publicly. AP is not human and is my vote for MVP.

I did the same. I typically go by the rule that they wont be the same for the year they come back and then excel the following year. ADP is truly a beast.

He's part kryptonian. It's the only explanation. Got a lot of respect for the drive he has. Beyond human.

I'm convinced they have perfected cloaning in Minnesota.
Obviously, Ponder is an earlier, failed attempt. :-b

Not to take anything away from AP and the beast that he is but JChaz didnt end up with too bad of a season after coming off surgery.

True, but when did Charles get hurt and who is threatening a 2000yd season? Who's team is still alive for a playoff spot and which is looking at a top draft pick?

I doubt anyone is saying that Charles' season is more impressive that AP's. AP is getting a ton of attention and love for what he did (and rightfully so, what he did was crazy), but Charles definitely deserves some props for bouncing back strongly like he did, even if it wasn't a historic bounce back.

Charles season of 1500 yards is actually quite surprising to me considering that he was underutilized in many of the games this season and was playing with Brady Quinn under center for about half of the games.

Definitely won a lot of leagues for where he was drafted.
