Redskins | Adrian Peterson's stay could be brief

Tue, 21 Aug 2018 23:48:29 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson is not considered a lock to make the 53-man roster with head coach Jay Gruden indicating Peterson is competing to be one of the team's "first and second down guys." Peterson's contract is not guaranteed unless he's on the active roster for Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson is competing with RBs Samaje Perine and Rob Kelley for a spot, and it doesn't sound like Gruden is married to the idea of having AD in DC for Week 1. Peterson's value is already marginal, but definitely keep an eye on his performance the next week-plus to see if he's even gonna make the cut.

Redskins | Adrian Peterson might play

Tue, 21 Aug 2018 13:02:04 -0700

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson is in great shape and has a chance to play this weekend if he is caught up to speed, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Other than Chris Thompson, the Redskins' backfield is a crapshoot right now with Peterson being the latest shiny toy. Rob Kelley, Peterson and Samaje Perine all devalue each other but are all still draftable, oddly enough.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson likely will compete with Rob Kelley for the starting job and could receive a solid amount of carries if he wins the job. He is not the running back he used to be but can still be a low-end No. 2 or flex option in standard leagues.

NFL | Adrian Peterson names many possible fits

Mon, 28 May 2018 13:17:34 -0700

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Cardinals) listed the Houston Texans, Green Bay Packers, Carolina Panthers, Miami Dolphins and Los Angeles Rams as potential teams who could use his services.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson is over the hill in football years, but he did hold his own with the Arizona Cardinals last year. His fantasy value will be at a minimum wherever he signs, but he would at least be worth a late-round look if he's employed.

Saints | Adrian Peterson open to Saints return

Mon, 14 May 2018 11:23:41 -0700

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Cardinals) said he would be open to signing with the New Orleans Saints this offseason even though things did not work out between the two sides last season.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints are not looking to add a veteran running back at this point, but Peterson could be an option for the team during training camp with Mark Ingram suspended for the first four games. Peterson will have a limited role no matter where he signs and could be a late-round option in standard leagues.

Saints | Adrian Peterson an option for Saints?

Sat, 12 May 2018 13:40:15 -0700

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Cardinals) would be an option that New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton would consider if the team pursues a veteran running back.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson has not received a lot of interest this offseason, so he may have to wait until training camp to sign with a team. He would only be a late-round option if he sees a decent amount of touches. The Saints likely will go with Alvin Kamara as their main back until Mark Ingram returns from his suspension. Kamara and Ingram can be at least No. 2 running back in leagues.
