“Feed the beast,” Goodwin said. “It’s like an old stove. The more wood you put in it, the hotter it gets. We’ve just got to make sure we feed him the ball so he can get comfortable.”
Peterson responded to Goodwin's comments by saying: "I'm all about that."
With Drew Stanton under center, it makes sense to feed Peterson with as many carries as he can handle. It's also a great matchup for Peterson and the Cardinals running backs, as the 49ers rank 32nd in our aFPA vs. RB rankings, meaning it's the best matchup of the week for RBs.
We have Peterson ranked as our No. 11 RB in standard leagues and he comes in at No. 17 in PPR leagues. Go ahead and start him with confidence.
