    I'll take Peterson. He's gonna have a huge fantasy year. I think his TD production will greatly increase.

    That's understandable from a fantasy standpoint. The Jags have less weapons and since he is one of the better backs in the league he's gonna get a higher percentage of touches than Peterson will.

    jones Drew also returns kicks.


    Fantasy-wise, MJD might be better.
    In real life? Hell no.

    Returning kicks does not matter in most fantasy leagues.
    Also ... I don't think he will be their primary returner now that he is so heavily involved in the offense.
    Anyone who take MJD over Adrian in a fantasy draft is a fool. This article was written just to fill space. No doubt that the guys behind it have Adrian rated No. 1.

    Re: Maurice Jones-Drew > Adrian Peterson

    All depends on if the return yards and TDs count.. Some do some don't

    Also the receptions he gets are good

    He is also the primary back this year

    He will be a good pick up IMO early in the 1st

    picking MJD #1 could be the move that makes or breaks you.
    He could potentially do better, as he's the full-time back, he catches the ball and can run very well.
    He returns kicks, which gets you points in some leagues.
    However, if he doesn't top Peterson, then you just look like a fool.

    Re: Maurice Jones-Drew > Adrian Peterson

    But can defences cue onto the run because the jags have zero passing game?
    We're bringing purple back.

    It does if MJDs production decreases because the defenses focus all their attention on him.
