Cardinals | Adrian Peterson logs 48 snaps in debut

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 10:01:40 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson played 48-of-65 offensive snaps in Week 6 - his first game with the team since he was acquired from the New Orleans Saints earlier in the week.

Fantasy Tip: It's a shocking workload for a player who looked like he had roughly four days to prepare, but the 32-year-old Peterson continued to defy logic with 134 yards rushing and two touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He's back in the RB2 conversation in Week 7 as the Cardinals face a Los Angeles Rams run defense that has struggled to contain opposing running games all season long.

Cardinals | Huge debut for Adrian Peterson

Sun, 15 Oct 2017 20:07:02 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson finished with 26 carries for 134 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-33 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Playing from ahead against Tampa Bay's banged-up group of linebackers certainly helped Peterson pad his numbers, but it looks like he has a little more left in the tank than he was being given credit for. It might not hurt to try to sell high on Peterson after his big performance, but RB2 production isn't out of the question while David Johnson is out.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson coming out for third downs

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 08:47:59 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson will not play on third downs, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: That was to be expected. Andre Ellington has received 24 targets on third down in the last two weeks. Peterson should be owned, but the expectations should be modest. Ellington keeps RB4 value in PPR formats.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson atop depth chart

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 17:34:42 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson has already been installed as the starting running back on the team's first submission of the depth chart following his trade from the New Orleans Saints on Tuesday, Oct. 10.

Fantasy Tip: This is hardly a surprise, considering the Cardinals only have Kerwynn Williams and Andre Ellington in reserve following Tuesday's release of Chris Johnson. Arizona seems committed to using Ellington primarily as a passing-down back, so Peterson will have to convince head coach Bruce Arians he needs more work by thriving on early downs. Peterson will have his work cut out for him behind a poor offensive line and figures to be no better than a RB3 in Arizona.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson lands in Arizona

Tue, 10 Oct 2017 08:50:55 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson was acquired by the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday, Oct. 10, for a conditional draft pick, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: AP has rushed for 2.39 yards per carry the last two seasons. Yes, there were scheme questions, offensive line questions and questions of what he has left. It's pretty clear he has lost a step. However, the Cardinals are desperate, and if Peterson has anything left to give - this is his last chance. Pick him up for depth in deeper leagues, but his value is heavier in non-PPR formats.

Saints | Adrian Peterson not on injury report

Fri, 29 Sep 2017 16:02:05 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson has been receiving around 10 touches over the last two games and likely will have a similar workload against the Miami Dolphins. He should be avoided in most leagues because he has not been very productive in new role.

Fri, 29 Sep 2017 06:10:00 -0700

Saints | Adrian Peterson tweaked knee

Thu, 28 Sep 2017 08:27:03 -0700

Updating an earlier report, New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson (knee) tweaked his knee in practice Wednesday, Sept. 27. However, the injury isn't considered serious, and his absence Thursday was a mix of the knee issue and a veteran's day off.

Saints | Adrian Peterson absent

Thu, 28 Sep 2017 06:20:17 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson was absent from practice during the portion open to the media Thursday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson's fantasy value has dwindled to the point that he's probably not worth a flex play against the Miami Dolphins.
