Adrian Peterson 2015 NFL Prediction, NFL Fantasy Football Prediction, Making A Case To Avoid AP?

We fired up and ready to go!  Yes, another NFL season is in our midst as we wind down another NFL offseason and preseason football.  Although our private NFL Fantasy league already drafted at the beginning of the month, NFL Fantasy football is all the rage these days!  With that, comes the Adrian Peterson bandwagon that everyone seems to be piling on to, as of late.  His past is but a memory, although his off-the-field issues still seem to lurk in the news.

But here we go, our SafePicks.com 2015 NFL prediction: Adrian Peterson will have a less-than-stellar season, one that may be poisoned and/or shortened with injury.  So if you plan to draft Adrian Peterson, especially if you have the first pick in your NFL Fantasy league, do so with caution.  Having had the pleasure of the first pick in our NFL Fantasy league draft, we avoided him with pleasure. Guess we’ll see if we were right to do so… soon enough.

Before some of you seethe or even scold us for our bold prediction here, although we may not the be-all-end-all authority in NFL Fantasy football, we do know a thing or two on the subject.  As background, SafePicks.com finished FIRST last season in our NFL Fantasy League, we came second the season before, and we finished top three in the last five of six seasons. So, we will do what we do, (making successful NFL predictions and NFL Fantasy predictions) and we will go out on a limb as we have, (win or lose) making such a bold prediction about Adrian Peterson.  That’s what we do, we make successful NFL predictions.  It’s a case of buyer beware. Why?  For several reasons.

First off, AP has a huge chip on the shoulder.  He is a man on a mission now that he’s back on the field.  But sometimes such an overly determined mindset does not ultimately bode well for performance and stat sheets, based on our research, and even history itself.  We’ve seen players try to do too much before and it did not serve them well in the long run, in terms of success and/or in health.  There is nothing worse than over-thinking it in NFL football especially in your all-out quest with something to prove.  In AP’s case, his mission will be to out-perform and then welcome the post-game media – only to field questions about his mired personal past.  Just you wait and see, Adrian Peterson will be trying to bite his tongue in those post game pressers which will only fuel his restless mental state.  Oh sure, AP is going to ‘give it’ and give it good in the heat of such self-imposed pressure.  But that mentality could potentially be his undoing.  When we make successful NFL predictions and we make many, this would be classified as the psychological angle ‎we use in our assessment of a game or player.

Then, secondly, if you believe in Poker gods, Golf gods, and even Football gods (don’t laugh), then the luck factor is a funny & unpredictable type of thing. Think on it, the gods of poker and golf have already made examples of a few big names, (Woods, Ivey, etc. just to name a few – for their own fall-from-grace reasons).  In fact, Tiger Woods is arguably a great example of what happens when you tempt fate and success, outside the game.  In that same vein, could one wonder if those Football gods plan to make an example of AP given his well documented personal issues?  With that to ponder, we find it absolutely stunning that he’s garnering so much fantasy football attention, going off as number one in so many mock drafts, NFL fantasy (Tier 1) ranking polls, and the like.  ‎Heck, even NFL.com has him top-ranking, how ironic is that by the way?  Everybody is jumping on the AP bandwagon!

Will Adrian Peterson put up some numbers?  Absolutely!  Will the same AP have some breakout games?  Certainly.  But will Peterson have the year (for the ages) that a majority of fantasy players are banking on?  We don’t believe so.  In this great sport we call NFL football, let’s not put the proverbial cart before the horse.  The killer, in the world of NFL predictions, is gut feeling or assumption.  Both are avid mothers of evil when making NFL predictions, so we believe.  AP is AP, no question.  But the jury is still out on Adrian Peterson, for a couple of more weeks only.  Then the world will see how wrong (or right) we may be.  Not long now.   As instinct would have it, we’re supposed to forget the off-the-field stuff and go all-in on Adrian Peterson.  Right?  But SafePicks.com cannot do such a thing, win or lose.  He’s a 30 year old back, drafted in the first round of the 2007 draft, (just like Marshawn Lynch).  For both, this is their ninth year.  Make no mistake though, Adrian Peterson was on track to becoming the best back ever to ‎run with the ball.  Then, a torn ACL, news of a child’s death, and then later, child abuse charges came and all of this put a dent on his chances of reigning supreme on the ground.  With a full year off, he is back and more determined than ever to make a point.  But tread carefully, proceed with caution.  Whether it be Lynch or another, there are better choices for our NFL Fantasy league dollars!  Good luck from SafePicks.com!

2014 NFL Season: The Top 10 Hottest Seats In The NFL, Predictions

So as part of our offseason preparation and homework, we take a look at those that might be sitting in a ‘hot seat’ heading into regular season.   So this a SafePicks.com look at who in the NFL could potentially have the so called “hot seat” heading into the 2014 NFL Season:

1. Jason Garret, Head Coach, Dallas:  For us at SafePicks, it has to be the playoffs or bust for the Cowboys head coach.  Into his 4th season, in the final year of his contact, we just cannot forecast anything great happening in Dallas this season.  In fact, we believe the Cowboys will be lucky to make .500 this year.  Although Garret is far to blame from what goes on in Dallas (thank Jerry Jones), a 29-27 record in 4 seasons usually gets a coach axed.  In this case here, mind you, Garret could very well be relegated to a lesser role next season, (as opposed to getting the axe) given his long career in Dallas.  Let’s see. 

2. Brian Hoyer, Quarterback, Cleveland:  Battling with rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel was a challenge and a distraction too.  But Hoyer has been announced the starter for the 2014 NFL season.  Hoyer, who was 2-0 when last season ended, needs to have a winning record by the end of the first quarter pole (Week 4) or expect Manziel to get the nod. There is a reason why the Browns went out and got Manziel, it’s up to Hoyer now to prove the job should be his.  Either way, Hoyer’s seat is hot.

3. Jake Locker, Quarterback, Tennessee: ‎ This will be a do or die, or a make or break scenario for quarterback Jake Locker. Although coach Ken Whisenhunt has a way of bringing out the best from his quarterbacks, Locker needs to be far better this season than he’s ever been. The Titans declined his fifth year option for a reason, now it’s up to Locker to play well and stay healthy.

4. Joe Philbin, Head Coach, Miami:  Essentially, his team needs to make the playoffs in order for him to have a chance at saving his job.  His team cannot flounder at the end of the season neither, a strong finish is required for Philbin’s team. First year assistant coaches on board this season won’t help the cause.  Philbin has had more of a say this season, but if the Fins can’t make an entry into the playoffs, it potentially could be the end of the line for Philbin.

5. ‎Ryan Tannehill, Quarterback, Miami:  There are no two ways about it, Tannehill is also on a hot seat of some kind. He needs to improve his play considerably and enable the Dolphins to be offensively competitive. Last season, he frequently missed his targets running standard routes, either over-throwing or under-throwing to them.  If Tannehil does not substantially improve this season, the Dolphins will draft a quarterback next offseason.  So let’s hope Tannehil has a more impressive season to get him off the hot seat.

‎6. Rex Ryan, Head Coach, NY Jets:  The organization my quell any rogue ‘lame duck’ rumors, but we believe Rex Ryan is on the hot seat to deliver at least a playoff berth. The Jets missed the playoffs for a third straight year. The ground-and-pound game may not be enough to make it to the Super Bowl these days.  However, the organization has backed Ryan heading into this season – which could be a PR move or fact.   At least we’ll state this, contract extension or not, Ryan will do himself favors by getting his team into the playoffs.  A fourth year without much to show may not go over well in NY.

7. Dennis Allen, Head Coach, Oakland:  After back to back 4-12 seasons, and finishing last season with a 6-game losing streak, anything south of a season ending . 500 record could potentially spell the end for Allen. Owner Mark Davis will almost certainly pull the trigger if better results are not on Oakland’s horizon this season.

8. Chad Henne, Quarterback, Jacksonville:  Right now, Henne is supposed to start in Week 1.  However, we here at SP doubt he will finish the season.  The Jaguars drafted quarterback Blake Bortles for a reason, as we hinted before (previously in early August), this guy is the real deal in the talent department.  ‎If Henne falters, expect Bortles to get the call and give Jags fans something to rave about for years to come.  Bortles will bring much needed wins to Jacksonville, making the Jaguars relevant again.

9. Trent Richardson, Running Back, Indianapolis:  In looking back, the Colts went and traded a 2014 first round draft pick for Richardson last September.  Last season, Richardson had a seemingly non-productive year.  Richardson had 458 yards total rushing in 14 games with Indy, that simply does not cut it.  Although he will be part of a three-pronged ground game (rotation), he needs to produce to be around next season.  Until we see his results this year, Richardson sits in a hot seat.

10. ‎Rob Gronkowski, Tight End, New England:  He used to be the most productive tight end in the business.  But over the last two seasons he has seen his production decline, mostly due to injury.  To put it into perspective, his last full injury-free season was in 2011 where he had 90 catches for 1327 yards.  Last year?  He caught 39 passes for 592 yards after playing in only seven games after back and forearm surgery.  How long will it be before another injury sidelines him?  We believe it won’t be long.  Gronkowski’s production has to improve or he might potentially find himself on the way out.
