Adrian Peterson Totals Only 11 Carries In Win

Detroit Lions running back Adrian Peterson carried the ball 11 times for 29 yards in the Lions thrilling 23-22 last-second win over the Falcons in Week 7. Peterson struggled to get anything going in the ground game, averaging only 2.6 yards per carry. The veteran out-touched rookie D'Andre Swift 11-to-9 in the backfield but it was Swift who saw chances in the red zone. Peterson continues to be the lead back at the beginning of games but is quickly losing his status as the bell-cow for the Lions to Swift. Both running backs will have a tough time next week against the Colts in Week 8.

Adrian Peterson's Touches Could Be Reduced Against Falcons

Detroit Lions running back Adrian Peterson will face a Falcons Defense that is allowing the ninth most fantasy points to opposing backs this season. Peterson has been the lead back but was overshadowed last week by D'Andre Swift's two touchdowns and 116 yards. Peterson has a great matchup this week but could take a backseat once again as the Falcons are allowing the most receiving yards to running backs this season. The Lions could choose to feature Swift more in this game, making Peterson a touchdown-dependent option out of the backfield in Week 7.

Adrian Peterson Rushes For A Touchdown In Week 6

Detroit Lions running back Adrian Peterson carried the ball 15 times for 40 yards with one rushing touchdown in the Lions 34-16 win over the Jaguars in Week 6. Peterson added 18 rushing yards and took the majority of the touches from the backfield in the first half. But the veteran took a back seat to the dynamic play of rookie D'Andre Swift and it is fair to question whether Peterson's may be on the decline moving forward. The future Hall of Famer, however, will have a favorable matchup next week against the Falcons.
