Saints to sign RB Adrian Peterson

Adrian Peterson tells me he plans to sign with the Saints on a 2-yr deal, effectively a (1 + 1 year option) term worth a base value of $7M.

Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate: "(Mark Ingram) would be the lead back. Peterson would be his backup. The Saints ran the ball 404 times last year."

Fantasy Impact:

After a 1,485-yard season in 2015, Peterson gained just 72 yards on 37 carries (1.9 YPC) in 2016 while his season was interrupted by meniscus surgery. He’s 32 years old and doesn’t run well out of the shotgun, which has become the norm in today’s NFL. We don't believe he'll usurp Ingram as the starter, though he should see a significant role a la Tim Hightower. Ingram may become a draft day value if his ADP takes a hit after this signing.

The New Orleans Saints are not done yet looking at big names on the NFL free-agent market.

According to an NFL Network report, the Saints plan to meet next week with running back Adrian Peterson, the 2012 NFL MVP.

Fantasy Impact:

After letting Tim Hightower leave to sign with the San Francisco 49ers, the Saints are in the market for help at running back. The prevailing expectation was for New Orleans to target a running back in the draft, but it appears they want to see if Peterson could help the offense.

Saints RB Mark Ingram (concussion, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 12. It looks like Ingram will be able to play in Week 12. When he was knocked out of the game, he had 10 touches to just five for Hightower, so he had regained control of the Saints' backfield after good rushing efficiency in Week 9 (15 carries, 158 yards) and Week 10 (11 carries, 50 yards). The Saints play early on Sunday, but we should know on Saturday if Ingram has navigated his way through the league’s concussion protocol.

Saints running back Mark Ingram also landed in the concussion protocol after a hit from Panthers safety Kurt Coleman early in the third quarter of the Panthers’ 23-20 victory. It looks like Ingram has a good chance of being in the lineup for Week 12, however.

Saints coach Sean Payton said that Ingram will practice with the team on Wednesday, which indicates that he’s made good progress getting through the concussion protocol and should be on track for clearance to play against the Rams this Sunday.

New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram left the game against the Carolina Panthers at the 7:26 mark of the third quarter after appearing to take a blow to the helmet.

He is under concussion protocol, the team announced at the start of the fourth quarter.

Ingram had just gained 13 yards when he collided with Carolina Panthers safety Kurt Coleman. Ingram appeared to go limp before hitting the ground, as played immediately waved to the sidelines for trainers.

Ingram walked to the sideline under his own power.

Fantasy Impact:

Since it was a Thursday night game, Ingram has a few extra days to recover before Week 12. Tim Hightower would be a Sneaky Start if Ingram can't play next week.
