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.

NFL | Adrian Peterson says he's fully healthy

Thu, 10 May 2018 17:46:14 -0700

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Cardinals) said he is "fully healthy" and "ready to go" for the upcoming season. In addition, he said his neck has been cleared by "multiple doctors."

Fantasy Tip: Peterson showed some flashes of his old dominant self this past season after he latched onto the Cardinals following his release in New Orleans. The 33-year-old ultimately finished with 529 yards on 156 carries and found the end zone twice. He probably still has something to offer, but more so as a complementary or change-of-pace back.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson released

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 14:11:32 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson was officially released Tuesday, March 13.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson gave the Cardinals some quality games, but he'll turn 33 years old next week and is comfortably over the hill in running back years. He may yet play a complementary role somewhere else, but he is merely a faint blip on the fantasy radar at this point in his storied career.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson says neck is healed

Mon, 12 Mar 2018 22:45:50 -0700

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Cardinals) said the Arizona Cardinals doctor told him that his neck is "completely healed" after reviewing scans and that he is "still looking forward to playing next season."

Fantasy Tip: Peterson's tenure with the Saints at the onset of the 2017 season turned out to be a huge flop, though that was more so because they had Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram carrying the load. When AP arrived in Arizona, he was decent and exhibited flashes of his old self, so perhaps there is still something left in the tank. Of course, that hinges on just where he ends up next.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson to be released

Mon, 12 Mar 2018 05:07:09 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be released Monday, March 12, according to a source. He is due a $750,000 bonus on the third day of the league year. He could still return to Arizona later.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson's fantasy value is pretty murky right now. If he returns to Arizona, he'd be an RB4 for depth.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson not close to retirement

Sat, 03 Feb 2018 10:21:51 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson will turn 33 years old in March, but he recently told the St. Paul Pioneer Press' Chris Tomasson he wants at least four more years.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson is a physical marvel and was able to carry the Arizona offense on his shoulders on occasion after he was traded from the New Orleans Saints, but any running back wanting to play into his mid-30s is living on borrowed time. Injuries are also a major concern. The Cardinals are expected to release Peterson, meaning he'll need to learn his third offense in about a year if he plays in 2018. While it is never wise to bet against him, Peterson is nearing the end of the line as a useful fantasy option.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson to be released

Wed, 31 Jan 2018 11:31:56 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be released, according to Fox Sports Radio's Mike Jurecki. Peterson's salary cap hit would be $3.5 million for 2018.

Fantasy Tip: With David Johnson returning and Peterson turning 33 years old and injury prone, it makes sense for the Cardinals to part ways with the veteran running back. It's unlikely that Peterson will ever be fantasy relevant again considering his age and injury history.

Fri, 15 Dec 2017 14:10:36 -0800

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (toe), LB Gabe Martin (hamstring), RB Adrian Peterson (neck) and OG Earl Watford (ankle) have been ruled out for Week 15 against the Washington Redskins. DL Josh Mauro (ankle) and DL Corey Peters (ankle) are listed as limited participants and considered questionable, while TE Jermaine Gresham (illness) is also questionable after missing practice due to illness. S Budda Baker (thigh), S Antoine Bethea (knee), OG Alex Boone (back), LB Karlos Dansby (rest), WR Larry Fitzgerald (rest), LB Chandler Jones (hip), DE Frostee Rucker (rest) and RB Kerwynn Williams (ribs) were full participants and removed from the injury report.

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 19:33:53 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a neck injury, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: With Peterson out for the year, Kerwynn Williams should remain a low-end, volume-based RB2 for the remainder of the season.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson remains sidelined

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 10:39:51 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) was not able to practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson may not play again this season, so we'll continue to see heavy doses of Kerwynn Williams with dollops of D.J. Foster mixed in. While Williams has seen a healthy amount of carries the last two games, his production has been more flex-like than that of an RB2.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson's status unclear

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 13:25:13 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) may not play again this season as head coach Bruce Arians said he has "no idea" if Peterson will recover from his neck injury in time.

Fantasy Tip: Arians didn't exactly take a glass-half-full approach with Peterson's status. He didn't even mention Peterson being able to practice soon. In the meantime, Kerwynn Williams and D.J. Foster will continue to man the backfield. Williams is no more than a flex dart.

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) has already been ruled out for Week 14, and head coach Bruce Arians said there is no timetable for Peterson's return.

Fantasy Tip: Kerwynn Williams is expected to start in Peterson's place, and he should be a volume-based RB3 until Peterson returns.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson officially ruled out

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 16:14:13 -0800

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) did not practice Friday, Dec. 8, and he has been ruled out for the Week 14 game against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson's injury is not believed to require surgery. With Peterson on the shelf, Kerwynn Williams figured to lead the charge against the Titans, but he is only worth using as a flex fantasy option against a tough Tennessee defense.

Cardinals | Week 14 injury report for Arizona

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 16:13:20 -0800

DL Josh Mauro (ankle), WR JJ Nelson (knee), DL Corey Peters (ankle), CB Patrick Peterson (hamstring) and OT Jared Veldheer (elbow) were limited in practice and are each listed as questionable.

Shipley (shoulder) and RB Kerwynn Williams (ribs) were able to practice in full and have been removed from the injury report.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson likely out

Fri, 08 Dec 2017 08:29:04 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) is likely out for Week 14, according to sources. The injury doesn't require surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Kerwynn Williams (ribs) returned to practice Thursday and figures to see most of the work in the backfield. He had his best game last week since his rookie season in 2014 and figures to be a solid flex candidate in a tough matchup against the Tennessee Titans.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson does not practice

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 13:50:38 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson may need to practice Friday, Dec. 8, if he wants a chance to play in Week 14. Owners should keep an eye on the situation but will need other options ready in case Peterson is ruled out again.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson idle Wednesday

Wed, 06 Dec 2017 08:19:41 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) won't practice Wednesday, Dec. 6, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Peterson will have to be cleared by doctors in order to play in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Kerwynn Williams rushed 16 times for 97 yards last week, and there is little reason to push Peterson to play with the team out of contention. The Tennessee Titans pose a tough matchup, but Williams is a decent flex candidate.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson's status up in air

Mon, 04 Dec 2017 11:32:50 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson's (neck) status for Week 14 will ultimately be decided on by Peterson and team doctors.

Fantasy Tip: If Peterson misses another week then Kerwynn Williams should once again start in the backfield. Williams ran exceptionally well last week in taking over for Peterson to the tune of 97 rushing yards. He'll be a low-end RB2 or flex play if Peterson is sidelined.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson appears unlikely to play

Sun, 03 Dec 2017 07:31:25 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) remains a game-time decision for Week 13's game against the Los Angeles Rams but the team is pessimistic about his chances of playing, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson did not practice at all during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. RB Kerwynn Williams is expected to start and should be viewed as a low-end RB2 or flex option, while RB D.J. Foster is worth considering as a flex option in PPR fantasy leagues.

Cardinals | D.J. Foster in line for carries

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 19:04:55 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB D.J. Foster is expected to step into a bigger role if RB Adrian Peterson (neck) is unable to play against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 13, according to head coach Bruce Arians. "Carries could easily fall into his lap," Arians said. "Quickly."

Fantasy Tip: Kerwynn Williams would likely start if Peterson can't play, but the prospect of more carries in addition to his role in the passing game make Foster a solid flex candidate in PPR formats.

Arizona Cardinals WR John Brown (toe), LB Deone Bucannon (ankle), S Rudy Ford (knee), DL Corey Peters (ankle) and RB Adrian Peterson (neck) did not practice Friday, Dec. 1. All players were ruled out, except for Peterson who is listed as questionable. DL Josh Mauro (ankle) and TE Troy Niklas (back, knee) were limited and are considered questionable, while WR Larry Fitzgerald (rest), WR Brittan Golden (groin), DE Robert Nkemdiche (ankle), TE Ricky Seals-Jones (rest), QB Drew Stanton (knee) and RB Kerwynn Williams (ribs) were each removed from the report.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson to be game-time decision

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 12:28:47 -0800

Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) will be a game-time decision versus the Los Angeles Rams in Week 13, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: While there is no guarantee as to who Arians would turn to, the most logical candidate is D.J. Foster. Arians recently praised his new third-down back, so given the attrition Arizona is experiencing at running back this season - David Johnson (wrist), Peterson, Kerwynn Williams (ribs) and Elijhaa Penny (knee) - he could be in line to start this weekend. Foster is a gifted receiver, making him an intriguing option if he gets the nod in what figures to be a game with negative game script.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson misses practice Friday?

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 11:14:13 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) was not spotted at the open portion of practice Friday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson was listed as "DNP" on Wednesday and Thursday, so it seems likely he didn't get a practice in after the session was closed to the media. It seems likely Peterson will be allowed to practice and play his normal role in Week 13 even without practice this week if he can handle it, so owners may have to wait this one out until the inactives are listed for this game Sunday afternoon. If he can't go, Elijhaa Penny and D.J. Foster would likely form a committee.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson does not practice

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 16:55:07 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 30.

Fantasy Tip: The Cardinals are optimistic about Peterson's availability, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He is coming off a decent Week 12 performance but will be facing a solid Los Angeles Rams defense. He could be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option if he plays.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson misses practice

Wed, 29 Nov 2017 12:50:35 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) was not able to practice Wednesday, Nov. 29, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

Fantasy Tip: Arizona's running back situation is cloudy at this point in the week. If Peterson keeps missing practice we may be forced to seriously consider starting D.J. Foster, especially in PPR leagues. It's still too soon to make a decision, though, so keep tabs on Peterson's status over the next few days.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson totals 99 yards

Sun, 26 Nov 2017 20:42:15 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson rushed 20 times for 79 yards in Week 12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he added four receptions for 20 yards on five targets.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson has failed to find the end zone in each of his five games since his explosive team debut on Oct. 15 against the Buccaneers. His four grabs were a season best and he remains a decent low-end RB2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 13 against the visiting Rams.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson stacked up in loss

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 18:04:43 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson rushed 14 times for 26 yards in Week 11 against the Houston Texans and he had just one catch for 13 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson had two 100-yard games in his first three appearances with the team, and it looked like vintage AP. However, he has managed just 55 yards on 35 carries, or a paltry 1.6 yards per tote. That's simply not going to do. Things don't figure to get better against a stout Jaguars defense in Week 12.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson joins dubious list

Sat, 11 Nov 2017 19:31:13 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson became the seventh player in NFL history to gain less than 30 rushing yards while carrying the ball 20 or more times when he rushed for 29 yards on 21 carries against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10.

Fantasy Tip: In four games since joining the Cardinals, Peterson has rushed for more than 130 yards twice and less than 30 yards twice. He will be a high-risk, high-reward RB2 against the Houston Texans in Week 11.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson stifled by Seahawks

Thu, 09 Nov 2017 21:21:53 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson carried the ball 21 times for 29 yards (1.4 YPC) during the team's 22-16 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10. Peterson caught one pass for 13 yards.

Fantasy Tip: You knew the Seahawks would load up to stop the run, but 29 yards on 21 carries is brutal production. That gives AD two huge games and two miserable games since joining the Cardinals. Expect the Houston Texans to adopt a similar gameplan in Week 11, but with the extra rest Peterson could return to RB2 status.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson sets NFL record

Sun, 05 Nov 2017 19:23:27 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson carried a career-high 37 times for 159 yards in Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers. He had the most carries in NFL history for a running back over the age of 30.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson racked up his second 100-yard game since coming over from the New Orleans Saints in a trade, re-emerging as a solid RB2 fantasy option in most leagues. He and his teammates have a quick turnaround before hosting the Seahawks in Week 10 on Thursday night.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson to be featured

Fri, 03 Nov 2017 08:18:47 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be featured in Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers. "Feed the beast," offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin said of Peterson. "It's like an old stove. The more wood you put in it, the hotter it gets. We've just got to make sure we feed him the ball so he can get comfortable."

Fantasy Tip: The Niners have allowed the most fantasy points to running backs the last five weeks and all season. However, a big chunk of that has been through the air, which Peterson doesn't excel at. He should still see enough looks to be in the low-end RB2 realm.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson bottled up

Sun, 22 Oct 2017 17:13:35 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson rushed 11 times for just 21 yards in Week 7 against the Los Angeles Rams in London.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson and the Arizona offense have two weeks to figure it out with a bye. It will be a challenge for Arizona going forward, as the team lost Carson Palmer to a broken arm and he is expected to miss at least eight weeks.

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.

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

Saints | Adrian Peterson rushes for 33 yards

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 13:41:01 -0700

New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson ran nine times for 33 yards in Week 3 at Carolina and he added two receptions for four yards on his two targets.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson has looked like a shell of his former self with the Saints, but Sean Payton keeps going to him for double-digit touches per week. However, Peterson is seeing about half the touches as starter Mark Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara is coming on, too. The fantasy future of Peterson is murky at best.

Fantasy Tip: It's strange seeing Peterson in a reserve role, but he has managed a total of 14 touches with 44 rushing yards through two games. It's the 2017 fantasy season and so far Peterson has been a very small part of it after years of domination.
