Yesterday we took a look at the surprising WRs who were targeted the most in Week 3, and also a glance at some surprising trends that brought us names like Andre Caldwell, Davone Bess and Dane Sanzenbacher (Jim Tressel is smiling somewhere). Today, it’s time to spotlight the RBs and take a look at the ‘touch leaders’ for Week 3.
Kenny Britt is officially out for the year, which could open opportunities for a trio of Titans receivers.
After he gained gained 98 rush yards on 16 carries against San Diego last week, Vikings RB Adrian Peterson now has rushed for 1,650 yards in 15 career games in the month of September. Peterson averages 110.0 rush yards per game in the month, which is the second-highest average in September in NFL history (minimum 10 games), behind only Hall of Famer Jim Brown. And when you consider the other names on this list, September success is impressive indeed.
The eight-year contract extension agreed upon by the Vikings and Adrian Peterson Saturday is the richest deal ever given to a running back, in terms of guaranteed money.
