RB Adrian Peterson is re-signing with the Redskins on a 2-year deal. The future Hall-of-Famer exceeded expectations (as usual) last year, pumping out his 8th 1,000-yard campaign on a decent 4.2 yards per carry. Ideally for Washington, Peterson will be a lightly used backup behind Derrius Guice in 2019.

Update: Peterson's deal is for $8 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. We're curious to see more details on the contract, but this initial reports makes it look like the 'Skins envision a significant role for AP. Perhaps there's concern about Guice's rehab from last year's torn ACL, which has required multiple surgeries.

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.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports that Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) will play against the Vikings tonight, "barring any pregame setback." He'll be playing through what he said is a grade 1 high-ankle sprain and a grade 2 low-ankle sprain. Peterson was already a shaky fantasy starter against the Vikings' 5th-ranked RB defense. The ankle injury just adds more risk.
