I'd see if Minny wants him. We have Edmunds and Lasco to fill in if AK or Ingram have to rest a couple of weeks. It was odd we didn't put AP in with 5 mins to go in the game to let him do clean up in garbage time.

Re: Peterson trade?

Our running backs don't get 2,000 yards in individual stats per year but we use them in so many other ways. They are also very important in the Saints offense, whether we fully grasp the concept or not. Although we're a passing team, our backs are used as receivers and are very important in blocking and 3rd down situations.

Usually our starters goes down mid-season because we use our backs in so many ways. Ingram has been starter for a while and seriously you need 2 starting bruiser backs in the offense SP runs. He's not prone to injury, it's how we use them that makes them prone to injury.

Kamara is the finesse back in the slot Reggie Bush made so famous with us with Sean Payton's offense.

We need Ingram, Peterson and Kamara for the offense to work correctly.
If Ingram or Kamara get hurt, AP will be of incredible value to this team.

Unfortunately running backs get hurt in our scheme right in the middle of season during division chase OR right when playoffs start.

We want to prevent what happened during the 2010 season and playoffs when pretty much we were calling up retired players and non-playing running backs for help off the street to just get SOMEONE in the 1st and 3rd down runningback slot. Kamara will never be able to hold that position alone if Ingram went down. I also think without depth at that position our offense become extremely limited and predictable.

Re: Peterson trade?

Is everyone crazy? No one is going to trade anything for Adrian Peterson...

He's not going back to Minnesota.

Lots of football left and running backs take a pounding over the course of a season. Adrian is a good insurance policy to have if anything happens to Mark.

Re: Peterson trade?

Prior to the Dolphins game I was pumping the brakes on Kamara but I'm not any longer. I think he has Thurman Thomas potential for us, we could certainly center our offense around him and MI is a very nice complement to keep us from overusing AK.

Re: Peterson trade?

If any of you have a chance, google RICKEY WATTERS. He was a really good change of pace back. Kamara reminds me a lot like him.

Wow I agree. A lot of similarity in the running style.

I had Watters on a fantasy team way back when. One of the first leagues I won.
