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 says he's signing with Saints
One-year deal, plus one-year option
By: Mike Krueger | Tue Apr 25, 8:15 am

New Orleans
Adrian Peterson told ESPN's Josina Anderson Tuesday morning that he plans to sign with the New Orleans Saints on a two-year deal that is effectively a one-year deal plus a one-year option. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: $3.5 million is guaranteed for 2017. With Tim Hightower now is San Francisco, New Orleans needed to add some depth behind Mark Ingram. Peterson is not expected to take over Ingram's role but simply complement him. At age 31, Peterson played in only three games in 2016 averaging 1.9 yards per carry. However, Ingram injury history does give Peterson some upside if he can flash his old form. He'll be a mid-round selection in redraft leagues this summer.


Saints still talking deal with Adrian Peterson
Club keeping options open heading into draft
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Apr 24, 9:30 am

New Orleans
I'm hearing the #Saints are still very much involved with Adrian Peterson. Sides still talking about a short-term deal to bring him to NOLA. (Jeff Duncan on Twitter)

FFToday's Take: The Saints will likely weigh their options post-draft and might sign the veteran running back if they strike out on bringing in younger blood this week. Peterson's market has been cool, although its likely he'll land with a team on a short-term deal at some point before training camp.
