Adrian Peterson is back from bye. Where does he rank this week?
Now that we are at Week 6 of the NFL season, ranking certain running backs for fantasy purposes is getting easier and easier. Grab a sharpie and write in Le'Veon Bell as the No. 1 running back (or No. 2 at worst) every week he plays, and as crazy as this might have sounded four weeks ago, you can follow him with Devonta Freeman.
But you already know those two are going to produce. But what about Eddie Lacy, what’s happened there? And Marshawn Lynch, if he plays this week (and he will), where does he rank? And where does Charcandrick West rank since he is taking over for the injured Jamaal Charles?
Oh and don’t forget that there’s this guy who's pretty good named Adrian Peterson back from his bye week? Where does "All Day" rank in Week 6?
All those answers can be found below. Enjoy.
