AP in AZ - Adrian Peterson Traded to Cardinals

It is exceedingly rare that the NFL sees relevant in-season trades, especially from a fantasy standpoint. The last time we saw something like this was when everyone thought the Browns were insane for trading Trent Richardson to the Colts. Turns out that was grand theft of a draft pick by the Browns. On Tuesday, October... Read More

Just need to keep on truckin' through the mud.... Read More
