Draft note
by John Paulsen
Peterson gained 1,250 yards on 271 touches in his age 33 season, but his ADP is in the double-digit rounds thanks to the return of Derrius Guice, who is expected to be the running back of the future in Washington. The main problem for Guice fans is that his balky knee has required three additional surgeries due to infection and he was already dealing with a hamstring injury in camp. Washington signed Peterson to a two-year deal, but only $1.5 million is guaranteed, so they can move on if necessary. For now, I think Peterson will continue to start until it’s obvious that Guice is ready to take over.

WAS RB Adrian Peterson - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 vs. Dallas Cowboys

Adrian Peterson was a healthy scratch in Week 1 as Washington appears to be fully-in on Derrius Guice. The problem now, however, is Guice will be out for several weeks, which means Peterson should take over main rushing duties now. He ran for 1,000 yards as the lead back a year ago, so he should get plenty of opportunities with Guice out of the lineup.

He gets what could be a tough matchup against the Cowboys this week. Dallas has a good defense, but allowed Saquon Barkley to run all over them in Week 1 (11 carries, 120 yards). We like Peterson as a lower-end RB2 option.
