You can have Adrian Peterson and his 1,657 rushing yards, 125 receiving yards, 9 touchdowns and 4 lost fumbles. That comes to about 223 fantasy points in most leagues.

I'll take DeAngelo Williams as Ffantasy Player of the Year and his 1,337 rushing yards on just 249 carries, 121 receiving yards, 20 touchdowns (18 rushing & 2 receiving) and 0 LOST FUMBLES. His fantasy point total was 265. He averaged 5.4 yards per carry compared to 4.8 by Peterson and had twice as many rushing touchdowns on 94 fewer carries.

That highest output 192 yard game by Peterson you mentioned accounted for 28 fantasy points. DeAngelo Williams beat that total 4 times: Week 5 vs. KC, 32 points, Week 13 vs. GreenBay 30 points, Week 14 vs. Tampa 30 points and week 16 vs. NY Giants 34 points.

And best of all, DeAngelo Williams went undrafted in our 12 team league. I picked him up as a free agent on August 18 as a #3 running back.

I agree with Williams as the top Fantasy RB. He is the number one scoring back in my league. Peterson is fifth.

I disagree with LT as the Top bust. Although he had an off year this year he is 12th in my league. The RB that has crushed most Fantasy players I know is Addai. He has done nothing all year. The one week he did I know two people who didn't play him because of 3 weeks of no production. Addai was a top 5 RB and a top 10 pick. He ranks 38th among RB's in my league. That is a big bust.

I agree, I have D. Williams and M. Turner on my roster and I feel both are of more value than Peterson. I got Turner in the 3rd round (to the amusment of my league who thought he was a reach) and Williams in the last round (because everyone thought stewart would be the man).

I'm the league champ and the owner of peterson finished last.
