Adrian Peterson or Jamaal Charles?

I know consensus is going to say Peterson. But that 5.8 per rush 5-year average is just sick. I mean, it's more than a 1/2 yard bigger than Jim Brown's career ave. And 3/4 of a yard bigger than Peterson's.

And it's not like KC has any better "complementary offensive players" than Minnesota has.

Neither of them, with Aaron Rodgers under center there's just no need to spend big bucks on an elite RB. That said, if I really HAVE to take one, I'd take AD 24/7. The Chiefs produced some elite RBs in the last couple of years (Priest Holmes, Larry Johnson, Jamaal Charles), so that might also be a system thing like with the Broncos a couple of years ago. AD in contrast is just outstanding because he's AD.

I might not pick either and go with Lynch.

Anyway.. it is truly sad that neither Charles nor Peterson have a QB that can exploit the defense at the moment off their efforts. Minnesota at least has someone that may grow into the position, KC is just a freaking mess.

If this is which over their career, the answer is Peterson without a doubt. If the question is from today forward it would be tougher. Peterson does have a lot more miles on his tires. I still think I would go with Peterson, I think he has the better ability to gain when there is not a hole. And more of his big runs seem to happen through the middle and then bouncing to open ground, where Charles seems to me to do more of his on edge runs.
