Take Adrian Peterson No. 1 Overall in 2013 Fantasy Football Drafts
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is the man. I mean the main man. He put a mediocre NFL team on his back in 2012 and literally carried them to the playoffs on 348 rushing attempts while compiling 2,097 yards and 12 touchdowns. That’s six yards per carry on almost 350 carries! You absolutely have to take this guy if you have the No. 1 overall pick in your 2013 fantasy football draft. If he falls past that point, you better not pass on him or you’ll regret it.
What about quarterbacks, you ask? Well, there’s about 10 you can take and have a very successful year, but there’s only a handful (if that many) elite running backs available to carry your team and none of them are as solid of a selection as Peterson–not by a mile.
Peterson’s efficiency is incredible, which is key for a stud fantasy football player at any position. Workload is another solid factor for an elite player, but having both puts him on another level. He could easily surpass the single-season rushing record in 2013 as he came just nine yards short this past season coming off an ACL tear. Normally, running backs miss a ton of time with that injury. He didn’t miss a single snap and then put together the best season of his illustrious career. To say the best is yet to come for the Palestine, Texas native is an understatement.
