Before we get to Peterson let’s address Toby Gerhart. We see him as a solid low end RB2 for week’s 1 & 3 and that may extend as far as four weeks into the season. Having to draft Peterson sight unseen is concerning and we’ve been saying that the end of round two is a fair place to draft him, but considering that we won’t have a glance at his cutting ability and burst we are now advocating third round for Peterson.
