The Saints and RB Adrian Peterson have agreed to terms. It's officially a 2-year, $7 million deal, but it'll play out like a 1-year contract with a team option for 2018. Peterson gets $3.5 million guaranteed this year, but none of the remaining $3.5 million is guaranteed for 2018. The contract -- and how long it took him to get 1 -- tells us how the league views AP at this point. He's a 32-year-old RB with over 2,600 career touches and a lengthy injury history. Saints insider Nick Underhill fully expects Mark Ingram to remain New Orleans' lead back, with Peterson as the backup. So he'll essentially be replacing Tim Hightower, who tallied 133 carries and 22 catches last year. Those 155 touches are a good initial projection for Peterson. He'll likely settle into RB3 range in our 2017 rankings -- albeit with TD upside. Ingram's stock takes a hit, but he could still average somewhere around the 14.6 carries per game he has over the past 3 seasons. And his pass-catching role should remain.
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.
Washington RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) is active for tonight's game against the Vikings. He put in a limited practice Wednesday after sitting out the first 2 workouts. Peterson is a weak fantasy option against a tough Minnesota defense. But he's available if you need him.
