Adrian Peterson Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

The Seahawks on Sunday placed RB Travis Homer on the COVID list. He joins Alex Collins there. It's not clear how significant a role either guy would have in this week's game, given the fluidity of Seattle's RB depth chart in recent weeks. But missing 2 components can only help Rashaad Penny, if you're planning to use him.

Seahawks RB Adrian Peterson will not play against the Texans on Sunday due to a lower-back injury, HC Pete Carroll said. Peterson never appeared on this week's injury report because he's on the practice squad. With RB Travis Homer out, Seattle is down to RBs Rashaad Penny, Alex Collins and DeeJay Dallas. Carroll said Penny will be a "big part" of the game plan this week. He looks like the best fantasy bet here, but this is still a backfield to try to avoid.

Seahawks RB Travis Homer (calf, hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Texans. RB Alex Collins (abdomen) isn’t listed on the final injury report, so he should play after missing last week. But it’s completely unclear how snaps and touches will be divvied between Collins, Adrian Peterson, Rashaad Penny and DeeJay Dallas. Despite the plus matchup, you’re better off avoiding this backfield.

Seahawks RB Alex Collins (abdomen) is inactive for today’s game vs. the 49ers. RBs Rashaad Penny (hamstring) and Travis Homer (calf) are active after being listed as questionable. RBs Adrian Peterson and DeeJay Dallas are also active. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said this morning that RB Adrian Peterson is expected to get the "bulk of the carries,” but he’s no better than a low-end RB3 play.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Seahawks RB Adrian Peterson is expected to get the "bulk of the carries" vs. the 49ers today. Peterson just joined the team on Wednesday but "looked great in practice," per Rapoport. Peterson, of course, flopped in Tennessee, and we're not optimistic about his production in this struggling Seattle running game. Avoid the Seahawks backfield in Week 13 fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the Seahawks will be activating RB Adrian Peterson ahead of Sunday's game against the 49ers. That indicates the veteran will be playing less than a week after joining Seattle's practice squad. Peterson, of course, already washed out with a needy Titans backfield this season and now joins a running game that has struggled in general. Adding a member to this lackluster committee only makes the whole situation more of an avoid for fantasy lineups.

Seahawks RBs Alex Collins (abdomen), Rashaad Penny (hamstring) and Travis Homer (calf) are listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers. Collins was limited in practice all week, while Homer and Penny got in multiple full practices. All 3 should be available this weekend. We'll see if Seattle activates RB Adrian Peterson from the practice squad for Sunday. This is a backfield to avoid in Week 13 fantasy lineups.

The Seahawks are signing RB Adrian Peterson to their practice squad. Here we go again. Peterson was completely ineffective in 3 games for the Titans earlier this season, averaging 3.0 yards per carry. Now he joins a Seattle running game that's been close to useless all season. We'll see if Peterson gets promoted to the active roster, but we wouldn't bother adding him in fantasy outside of the deepest of leagues.

The Titans released RB Adrian Peterson. This could be the end of the road for the 36-year-old, who averaged just 3.0 yards on 27 attempts over the past 3 weeks. Tennessee will move forward with RBs D'Onta Foreman, Dontrelle Hilliard and Jeremy McNichols for as long as Derrick Henry is out.

Titans RB Jeremy McNichols (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Texans. That turns Tennessee’s backfield from a 3-man to a 2-man committee. McNichols averaged 5.5 carries and 3 targets over the past 2 weeks, so his absence is a slight boost to RBs D’Onta Foreman and Adrian Peterson.

Titans RB Jeremy McNichols (concussion) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He's now looking unlikely to be cleared in time for Sunday's game vs. the Texans. McNichols has averaged 5.5 carries and 3 targets in 2 games without RB Derrick Henry, so his absence would be a slight boost for RBs D'Onta Foreman and Adrian Peterson.

Titans RB Jeremy McNichols missed Wednesday's practice and is on the injury report with a concussion. It's the first we've heard of it but has McNichols in danger of missing Sunday's game vs. the Texans. His absence would turn a 3-man backfield into a 2-man backfield with D'Onta Foreman and Adrian Peterson. McNichols has totaled 11 carries and 6 targets with RB Derrick Henry out the past 2 weeks.

NFL Network's James Palmer says "don't be surprised" if Titans RB D'Onta Foreman gains carries vs. the Saints "over Adrian Peterson." We thought Foreman looked better than Peterson in the season debut for each veteran back last week against the Rams. Of course, Tennessee faces the league's #1 defense in rushing DVOA, according to Football Outsiders. So neither RB is an exciting option for Week 10. Foreman looks like he carries more upside than Peterson.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Adrian Peterson is expected to be the Titans' lead back vs. the Rams tonight. Pelissero throws out a projection of "upwards of 15 touches" for Peterson. We're curious to see exactly what this Henry-less backfield looks like, with Jeremy McNichols and D'Onta Foreman also in the mix. We'd still consider Peterson just a RB3 or flex play for Week 9.
