Jerry Rice: Adrian Peterson still number one pick in fantasy

We don’t know if Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice actually plays fantasy football. However, his advice to pick Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson at No. 1 is solid. Despite the fact that the league contains many pass-heavy NFL teams and that Peterson is coming off of a one-year suspension, Rice apparently has no reservations about endorsing the 30-year old running...

There isn’t a ‘LeBron James of football,’ and there never will be

Jamaal Charles and Adrian Peterson both think they’re the “LeBron James of Football.” Both are wrong, and here’s why. 1. A running back can’t be a LeBron — The last two seasons were the most pass-heavy campaigns in NFL history. The face of almost every team is the quarterback. If being the LeBron of the league means being the face of the league, there’s no way Charles...

Adrian Peterson: I'm already a Hall of Famer

Adrian Peterson has a rather lofty opinion of his NFL accomplishments. As the NFL welcomed eight new men into the Hall of Fame on Saturday, Peterson reflected on his own career while speaking with reporters. Let’s just say he wasn’t shy. “I’m going to be blunt and honest with you. I feel like if I didn’t play another snap in my life, I got the opportunity to go in...
