Washington HC Jay Gruden seemed happy with his 1st look at recently signed RB Adrian Peterson in game action Friday night. “I saw a big guy running pretty hard really,” Gruden told reporters afterward. “He ... had a couple good bounces, and, you know, the thing I like about some of his runs is they look like they’re like gains of ones [yard] and he’d fall forward for a gain of three. The first run of the day I thought it was a three-yard gain and he ends up second and three. I was impressed with Adrian and the way he ran.” Peterson carried 11 times for 56 yards, while Rob Kelley played just 3 snaps with the starters (and totaled 8 carries for 19 yards). That doesn't necessarily indicate a new depth chart. It certainly made sense to give Peterson more run to test out the new guy over an incumbent in his 3rd year with Gruden. Samaje Perine is also expected to return to action in the coming week. We'll see how this situation gets sorted out. In the meantime, we're not drafting any of Washington's 3 big backs until well into the double-digit rounds.
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 active for today’s game against the Lions. He finished 3rd among Washington RBs in snaps last week and is a weak fantasy option. RB Chris Thompson (toe) is inactive, giving Wendell Smallwood another game in a passing-down role.
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.
