Adrian Peterson Hopes To Play Four More Years

Washington Redskins running back Adrian Peterson said he hopes to play four more years in the NFL. Peterson, who turned 35 in March, rushed for 898 yards and five touchdowns while averaging 4.3 yards per carry in 15 games. Peterson is 4,139 yards away from breaking Emmitt Smith's all-time rushing record, but he would need to average over 1,000 more yards per season to reach Smith's mark. With Derrius Guice and Antonio Gibson each in line for carries, it will be tough for Peterson to reach that mark this season, let alone be a dependable fantasy starter. Peterson has shown flashes of his old self, but he shouldn't be relied on as a starter in fantasy leagues.

"There's a Role" For Adrian Peterson In The Washington Offense

Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Scott Turner said, "I have a ton of respect for Adrian...There's a role for that type of back." Adrian Peterson will be entering his age-35 season and has over 14,000 yards on his legs, but proved to still be a solid option in 2019, running for 898 yards at a 4.3 yard-per-carry average. Turner gave the expected answers when asked about running back usage, saying that the team wants to "foster competition" and roll with "whoever gives [them] the best chance" to win. This may end up being a bit of a hot-hand situation, but it seems like Derrius Guice, Peterson, rookieAntonio Gibsonand maybe even Bryce Love will have a role in this offense. Turner also said he'll need to get creative to get the ball to Gibson, J.D. McKissic and Steven Sims Jr.

Adrian Peterson Eyes Starting Job Despite Plenty Of Competition

The Washington Redskins running back room is packed with bodies, but veteran Adrian Peterson won't alter is approach and is competing for a starting job in 2020. "I've always had the mindset of being open to competition," Peterson said. "So I will embrace it the same way." Washington signed Peyton Barber and J.D. McKissic in free agency and drafted Antonio Gibson in the third round. Derrius Guice and Bryce Love also remain on the roster despite dealing with injuries. McKissic mostly plays on third downs, but Barber and Gibson are real threats to Peterson's workload. Peterson has rushed for 1,940 yards and 12 touchdowns in his two seasons in D.C. and missed just one game when he was a healthy inactive. The future Hall of Famer will still have a role in 2020, but he's likely to be overshadowed by Guice and/or Gibson.
