"There's not too many players in general that miss a season and his peers vote him into the top 100," Peterson said, via the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "You tell me if (LeSean) McCoy and other running backs (would) miss a season and you tell me if they would still be voted into the top 100?"
Even if he has no issue with his ranking, Peterson still believes he's the best running back in the game.
Asked if he lost that mythical title after missing most of last season, Peterson quipped, "Come on now. No."
If he finally breaks Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record, there will be no room for doubt that Peterson stands alone as the NFL's premier back.
