Quick Hits: Chalk up week one to rust or whatever you want, but look for Adrian Peterson to bounce back this week against a division rival that he has always destroyed…I have Matt Forte ranked so high in PPR because I think he will catch a ton of balls this weekend. The Arizona Cardinals are very stingy when it comes to rush defense, however they gave up a number of big plays in the passing game to the Saints’ running backs last week…Carlos Hyde ran all over Minnesota’s defense last week, and I’m interested to see how he will do this week against Pittsburgh, but I am more interested to see what Ameer Abdullah can do against that same Vikings defense, to follow up his strong week one…PPR star Danny Woodhead could be in line for another big game this weekend against Cincinnati, plus he also ran the ball 12 times last week which is more than usual. Hopefully that trend continues.

    Do you think B. Sankey is the real deal or Tampa Bay is just a horrible D? – Part of the reason I ask is because in my league each team keeps 2 players that were drafted RD 5+ or picked up off waivers from the prior year. Running Back keepers to me are the most valuable, because of how thin the position is each year. With that said, players I currently own that can be kept for next year are: B. Marshall, S. Johnson, Duke Johnson, A. Robbinson, T. Eifert… I’m trying to get B. Sankey from a guy that doesn’t believe in him for Allen Robbinson, but he wants Brandon Marshall instead. I believe in BMarsh and love him as a 2016 keeper even on the horrible Jets, but what do you think – is B. Sankey the real deal, is he worth it to trade for or is giving up BMarsh way too much? (.5 PPR for WR, 1 PPR for RB) – the trade is really not out of need for this year, I’m stacked at both RB/WR, so this trade is really involving players that ride my bench/depth for potential 2016 stud keepers.

    Thanks!
