Since the season started I’ve done Tuesday rundowns of all the NFL backfield situations. I’m doing the same thing this week. Also, since I’m not omniscient, check out RotoViz’s Buy Low Machine and RB GLSP Projections. Here we go. Vikings RBs Adrian Peterson did his thing in Week 10, and yet, if Christian Ponder’s shoulder injury causes him to miss games, I’m a little worried about what Peterson will do sans Christian. I know that my worry about AD (and the phrase “sans Christian”) sounds stupid, but Samantha’s husband has averaged 16.6 pts/g played in 2013, which means he’s basically Alex Smith—and that’s a lot better than Matt Cassel and Josh Freeman. But what does this really mean? Nothing. If you have AD, you’re always starting him. If you want more self-indulgent non-actionable pseudo-analysis on other RBs, read on.
