View Full Version : Possible Adrian Peterson Injury

09-24-2009, 08:42 PM
With Peterson missing practice with a minor back injury, and Chester Taylor available in my league ( a PPR league), I'm thinking of picking up Taylor. My other RB's are Chris Johnson, Steve Slaton, Knowshon Moreno, and Fred Jackson. My receivers are Greg Jennings, Brandon Marshall, Eddie Royal, and Hines Ward. I have Cutler and Orton as QB's.

I really need Fred Jackson to start this week as he's got a favorable match up against the Saints. I expect Slaton to start clicking soon, as well as Moreno. I could drop Orton, but then I'd have to pick up another QB soon, because Cutler has a bye in week 5, and there aren't any decent QB's available.

My theory is that a back injury often precedes another more serious injury, which would set Taylor up for a big year. But who would I drop?

I either have to sit still or drop Marshall or Royal, and I don't know which of them will have a big year.

Any suggestions from the Mane?
