Top Four Fantasy Running Backs To Draft After Adrian Peterson

If you have the No. 1 overall draft pick in your fantasy league this year, the selection is easy.

You select Adrian Peterson.

Peterson rushed for 1,700 yards and 10 touchdowns last year. Peterson is a threat to reach 2,000 yards and double-digit touchdowns this year. He is the smart pick at No. 1.

This year, there has been a big change in the top running backs. Names like LT, Brian Westbrook, Clinton Portis, Joesph Addai, and Steven Jackson have fallen far on most projection sheets.

This year names like Michael Turner, DeAngelo Williams, Maurice Jones-Drew and Matt Forte are top this year.

So, which one do you take after Peterson?

(Note: The rankings of these players are not my opinion. Nor are they necessarily in the order I would rank them.

I took a projection sheet from a popular Web site. I chose a Web site that many will use in this year's fantasy draft. I felt that this method better fit this article.)
