A lot of different factors go into these things Will. For starters, what AP did against the Lions with Minnesota had no bearing whatsoever on our matchup with Detroit. There's also a chance that Stafford won't be playing.

Re: Adrian Peterson Traded to Cardinals

I was really high on our signing AP. Lots of upside without that much risk. Turned out not to work, so we made the best out of a bad situation and turned it into a positive. I've got nothing against AP and I hope he does well in AZ, but without his speed burst what does he have? Strength, yeah, but not vision. He's going to run full speed into a pile and get 2-4 yards at best. Is that any better than Cadet (or fill in your average back name)

Re: Adrian Peterson Traded to Cardinals

I viewed it as insurance when Ingram inevitably misses 2 games. The drafting and subsequent rise of Kamara made him expendable. Guess we call up the little bowling ball from the PS now?

My Fantasy Heart soars now because in my cash league, I have MI...
Lasco is stashed on the PS.

Never really saw how AP was going to work in the SP offense. Kind of a square peg round hole thing.

From my FA shopping list we could have and should have (horse shoes and hand grandees)

My #1 off season target at RB that fit SP like a glove was and probably will be again in 2019
Rex Burkhead RB 26 CIN NE 1/$3,150,000

Or spend that money on defense
Datone Jones OLB 26 GB MIN 1/$3,750,000
Duron Harmon FS 26 Pats Pats 4/$17 million

Kick in Ted Ginn Jr and we could have signed

Micah Hyde SS 26 GB BUF 5/$30,500,000
Jabaal Sheard DE/OLB Pats Colts 3/$25.5 million

Still not accepting the Ginn

It just didn't work to Payton's liking and his RuAtt showed that against the Vikings...

And Matthew Stafford is banged up, iffy coming into this game...

I thought he might have broke a big one or two by now. Just not the same player. The explosion is not there. Nothing wrong with that either. MI won't be playing at that age that's for sure.

Re: Adrian Peterson Traded to Cardinals

Maybe Peterson can help the Cards tack some losses on those NFC West teams so the Saints don't have to geaux there for the playoffs...
