The Redskins have exercised RB Adrian Peterson's 2020 option, which will pay him $2.25 million in 2020. The future Hall-of-Famer averaged 4.3 yards per carry while leading Washington with 211 carries and 899 rushing yards last year. A healthy Derrius Guice figures to lead the 2020 Redskins backfield -- but Peterson is strong veteran insurance.

Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (toe) is expected to play against the Lions today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. AP only got in a limited practice on Friday, so it's possible his role is scaled back even further than it was last week with Derrius Guice added to the mix. Peterson would be a desperation Week 12 fantasy start.

Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (toe) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Lions. He only got in a limited practice on Friday. Peterson shouldn’t be in your fantasy plans after finishing 3rd among Washington RBs in snaps last week, but his absence would be a big boost for Derrius Guice. RB Chris Thompson (toe) is also listed as questionable but is tentatively expected to play. He figures to take over for Wendell Smallwood as the pass-catching back.
