2017 Outlook
Depth Chart
Adrian Peterson has made a living out of proving people wrong his entire career. So it's not out of the ordinary that he will be picking up right where he left off entering 2017. Injury and off-field issues have devolved Peterson from being a consensus top fantasy player to a total crapshoot. He is slated to be Mark Ingram's backup so fantasy owners shouldn't expect more than 150 touches. Can a part-time Peterson be useful to fantasy owners? Absolutely. In shallow leagues, Peterson is a quality handcuff to those investing in Ingram. In twelve team and deeper leagues he is on the fringes of being worth the risk of a roster spot due to opportunity, not talent. Two years ago the former Viking produced a 4.5 YPC and over 1,700 total yards. He has plenty of motivation to succeed and a team that loves to put the ball in the hands of its playmakers. The downside is that unless the team departs from their pass happy ways, Peterson is not a lock to see double-digit touches with Ingram atop the depth chart or enough goal line carries to become a dependable touchdown vulture. New Orleans will undoubtedly give Peterson every attempt to add a few receptions to his stat line but that only adds to his upside not his projections. If you can stomach the risk, Peterson is only a few opportunities away from being a quality fantasy asset.

News From The Past 90 Days
Adrian Peterson traded to Cardinals
Sources say deal gives conditional pick to Saints
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 10, 12:07 pm

Arizona Cardinals
Dianna Russini (@dianaESPN) on Twitter: "Trade! The New Orleans Saints have traded Adrian Peterson to the Arizona Cardinals for a conditional pick per sources" (Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Saints RB coach was just talking up Peterson during the bye week, but okay -- this makes sense, doesn't it? Peterson was never a fit in New Orleans, and this move opens up touches for both Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara -- perhaps the biggest fantasy winners here. The Cardinals have found an explosive runner who can help the power running game. Peterson is worth adding in all formats if he's available, though is upside will be limited by a poor offensive line.


Injury Adrian Peterson misses practice Thursday
Tweaked knee in practice Wednesday
By: Mike Krueger | Thu Sep 28, 9:45 am

New Orleans
New Orleans Saints running back Adrian Peterson suffered a tweaked knee during Wednesday's practice, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network. Rapoport points out Peterson's absence from Thursday's practice could be a combination of the tweaked knee and a veteran rest day. (Times Picyanue)

FFToday's Take: There's no official word on his status for the London game in Week 4, but this doesn't sound like a serious injury. Peterson remains third on the depth chart from a fantasy perspective behind Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara.


Injury Dalvin Cook still favorite to win RB job
Latavius Murray "behind the 8-ball" because of injury
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 1, 11:05 am

Minnesota Vikings
With rookie Dalvin Cook looking good, Latavius Murray is behind in the race to be the Vikings’ starting running back. Following March 22 surgery on his right ankle, Murray sat out spring drills and has been on the physically unable to perform list since he was eligible July 24 to participate in his first practice at training camp. (Pioneer Press)

FFToday's Take: “It’s very frustrating to not be a part of what the guys got going on,” Murray said Monday. “I know I’m behind the 8-ball. That’s the most frustrating part.” Murray has never exactly been the prototypical workhorse back and Cook is running the majority of plays with the first team. Cook himself is reluctant to say he's the leading candidate to replace Adrian Peterson, but he makes sense as the first Vikings Rb off the board in fantasy drafts.
