AP's value

Postby duffoholic » Tue Apr 09, 2013 2:05 pm

What are your thoughts on Adrian Peterson's value this season?

Does he put up similar numbers to last year and end the season as the undisputed number 1 RB or does production drop off?

Would you rather start the season with him or Foster as your primary back to go with Jamaal Charles?

i don't think there is anyway he matches last year's totals, but he still has to be #1. His consistency is tough to match and his floor is pretty darn high. He may not finish the year at #1, but I would put quite a bit of money on the fact that he will finish top 5. You're picking hairs between Foster and AP, they both are true stud #1's.

I like AP as my #1 RB this year. He may not finish in the top spot but is the best bet to do so in my opinion.

I am actually asking as a Foster owner. I was thinking about trying to trade for AP this year as I'm a little worried about Foster's waning production at the end of last season and the wear of consecutive 400+ touch seasons. Plus I would gain 8$ in cap room with the trade. I am thinking about offering him Foster (30$) and possibly the rights to Newton for AP (22$) and Little (1$) or the rights to Maclin. I understand this looks crazy but the rights only guarantee you the last right of refusal on a player so he would be able to get Newton after bidding ended for whatever the highest big was. Plus I have Wilson for 3$.

There are some big names available at WR this season that I would like to make a move on, especially since we are adding a PPR aspect to our league this year (probably 1pt/2 or 3 rec, milestone). Julio, Green, Andre, Calvin, Lynch, Morris, Rice, Ridley and Dez are all hitting free agency or restricted free agency. I'm just trying to free up cap space to make a move on some of these names as my WR core needs some work.
12 team auction (100$)
Wilson 3$, Dalton 4$
Foster $30, Charles $16, Tate 2$, Wilson 10$
V. Jackson 10$, Boldin 3$, Garcon 4$, Witten, 4$, T. Austin $5, Patterson 2$, Tate 3$, Dobson 1$
Tucker, K 1$,Tynes, K 1$
NYG D, 1$

If I am the AP owner at $22, you'd have to make me an offer that I can't refuse and my guess is you will overpay for him. Especially with the $2 handcuff in Tate, I'd stay put
