Redskins Pick Up Adrian Peterson's Option

The Washington Redskins exercised the 2020 team option on running back Adrian Peterson on Wednesday. Peterson led the team in attempts (211), rushing yards (898) and rushing touchdowns (five) in 2019 and will enter the 2020 season having started in 154 of the 164 games he's appeared in. The veteran is ranked eighth in NFL history in rushing attempts (3,036) and sixth in yards per game (86.7). He needs 1,054 rushing yards to pass Barry Sanders for fourth on the all-time list and needs 13 rushing TDs to pass Marcus Allen for No. 3. Peterson is a seven-time Pro Bowler and four time first-team All-Pro, but he'll take a back seat to Derrius Guice next year if Guice can stay healthy.

Adrian Peterson Goes For 78 Yards To End Season

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson went for 78 yards on 13 carries against the Cowboys to end the 2019 season. The best way to recap his second year with the Redskins would be to say that he did the best he could with what he had. Peterson served as Washington's featured back for most of the year, with oft-injured youngster Derrius Guice struggling to stay on the field. For the most part, he produced at around the clip you'd hope for from a 34-year old running back with the football equivalent of 150,000 miles on his engine. On a better team, the level of opportunity Peterson saw on a weekly basis may have yielded a mid-range RB2 fantasy season. It's clear that Peterson still has enough left in the tank to be a serviceable contributor in the NFL, and the Redskins possess a team option on him for 2020. With Guice missing nearly all of his first two NFL seasons due to injury, it wouldn't be astounding to see the Redskins keep Peterson around to help out in the backfield, assuming he wants to continue playing.

Adrian Peterson A Volume-Based Fantasy Play

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson will look to close out the 2019 season on a high note against the Cowboys in Week 17. The veteran has scored a touchdown in four straight games, and has routinely seen a touch count well into double digits when he's been the lead running back for the Redskins. The Cowboys represent a relatively difficult matchup for running backs, holding the position to 4.1 yards per carry on the season. Peterson's value stems from having the lion's share of his team's rushing workload, and he should once again be in line for enough of it to warrant flex consideration with a touchdown-driven ceiling.
