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.

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.
