Yeah, he fell to my third round pick in two different leagues, so I took him there after considering other options. The other RBs available at the time were just crap because all of my leagues went heavy on RBs early. MJD was getting picked before AP, which I thought was crazy (this was during his holdout). RBs that were available around AP's pick were Gore, Richardson, Doug Martin, Shonn Greene, Darren Sproles, Stevan Ridley and Willis MacGahee. When looking at that lot before the season started, I had to take a chance on AP, especially in a non-PPR league.
I'm 8-1 in both of those leagues with AP, and they are very good teams. I was able to make Aaron Rodgers my 1st pick in both of those leagues, and got a different RB in the 2nd of both. One was Fjax and the other Doug Martin. AP and Martin got me 93 points together this week in the PPR league, and I was 5 points shy of setting a new record for most points in one week (202), which was set earlier this year breaking the previous record of 186.
I'm expecting at least one trophy at the end of the year!
