Over the past three seasons, Peterson has averaged barely over 4 yards
With Fantasy football drafts and auctions reaching their apex this weekend http://www.newyorkjetsteamonline.com/jachai-polite-jersey , here are some tidbits to keep in mind:-- Considering Adrian Peterson with hopes of one last burst of glory? Don't. per carry and faces a schedule that has the Redskins playing 10 teams who ranked in the top half of the league last year in least fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs. He should be crossed off most lists in PPR leagues, and is not worth the gamble in non-PPR formats.-- Ravens running back Alex Collins is quietly on the verge of a breakout season. He's being drafted as a mid-tier RB2 in most leagues, and while Baltimore plans to use Javorius Allen in passing situations, Collins projects to have a workload conducive to an RB1. He's a slight downgrade in PPR formats, but he is worth a reach a round or two early in non-PPR leagues.-- The Allen Robinson of 2018 will look more like the Pro Bowl player who caught 80 passes for 1,400 yards and 14 touchdowns with the Jaguars in 2015. He's going to be a big reason why Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky takes a big step forward in his second year. Coach Matt Nagy will find ways to get the ball to Robinson, who should have 140-150 targets this season. Consider him in the early portions of Round 3.-- Keep an eye on Randall Cobb with rumors of a transaction heating up in Green Bay. If he moves, receiver-starved teams like the Cowboys and Patriots are potential landing spots. He's an interesting late-round play if either Dak Prescott or Tom Brady is throwing the ball to him.-- Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is worth the risk. Look for him to make Einsteins out of those willing to draft the big-armed youngster who can fire the ball to Pro Bowlers Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill, along with Kareem Hunt and free agent-signee Sammy Watkins. Mahomes will have a frustrating game or two, but he has a chance to produce 28-30 total touchdowns.-- The so-called "zero RB" draft plan sounds insane, but fantasy owners picking in the back end of the first round wouldn't be faulted for considering it Chuma Edoga Jersey , especially in PPR formats. There's always going to be a late stage/waiver wire running back or two who emerges as a useful producer.-- While some fantasy pundits suggest drafting just one quarterback, last season's spate of injuries at the position should be a reminder that having a quality QB2 on the roster is better than streaming the likes of Case Keenum and Joe Flacco on a weekly basis.GREAT WHITE SPOTTED IN H-TOWNAstros first baseman/designated hitter Tyler White is shaping into a monster waiver wire pickup that can carry a fantasy team to the finish line. White's walk-off home run on Wednesday was his eighth since the All-Star Break, a period where he's had a slash line of .345/.400/.713. Houston will continue to start him, which means White_owned in less than 40 percent of leagues_is a must-grab.BEANTOWN REVIVALCeltics swingman Gordon Hayward is a full-go when training camp opens in late September. Hayward played all of five minutes last season before sustaining a gruesome leg injury that sidelined him the rest of the way.Fantasy basketball owners shouldn't worry about the risk, as Hayward will be the second option behind guard Kyrie Irving in Boston. He will be a solid top-50 pick who will look like the Hayward who averaged 21.9 points and 5.4 rebounds in his last season with the Jazz in 2016-17. If there is one person absolutely thrilled with all of the press attention being given to the likes of Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson, Josh Gordon, Greg Hardy, and Ray McDonald - among others - it's the owner of Washington's football team, Dan Snyder. All of the press coverage being given to the domestic abusers, child abusers, and drug offenders http://www.newyorkjetsteamonline.com/trevon-wesco-jersey , means less press coverage for Snyder and the controversy surrounding his football team's nickname. The less ink it gets, the happier Snyder is.Eventually though, those court cases will be resolved, punishments handed out, and the waters around the NFL will calm again. Eventually, the controversy surrounding Snyder and his utter defiance about changing his team's nickname will come back into focus and have the spotlight shined on it once again. For many, sooner would be better than later.It seems inexplicable in this day and age - in this post-Donald Sterling world - that the owner of a major sports franchise would fight tooth and nail, to keep a name that is recognized as a racial slur. Time and tradition changes, and what was acceptable decades ago isn't found to be acceptable today. Take Adrian Peterson for example - there was a time when hitting your child with a switch, regardless of whether or not it left actual injuries to the child, was deemed an acceptable disciplinary practice. That's not so today. If you injure your child in the course of "disciplining" them, you will face serious consequences. And rightly so.Call it out of control political correctness if you wish Alexander Mattison Jersey , but the fact of the matter is that the term "redskin" is demeaning, it is insulting, and it is a racial slur. It is every bit as offensive as using the "N" word or any other demeaning racial slur people sometimes use.If you've never experienced racism or had racial slurs thrown at you, you might not truly understand what the big deal is. But as somebody of Japanese descent, I have had a countless number of racial slurs directed at me growing up, so this is an issue I take particularly seriously. To me, defending the name of Washington's team is an exercise in defending the indefensible.Though there are so many more, here are just 10 reasons Dan Snyder needs to change the name of his football club.
