Draft note
by John Paulsen
The ageless Peterson racked up another 898 yards on 211 carries in 2019, averaging 4.2 YPC or more for the 10th straight season in which he’s seen at least 200 carries. He’ll start the season behind Derrius Guice, who has played five games in two seasons, so Peterson could once again find himself in a two-down role if Guice can’t stay healthy.

DET RB Adrian Peterson - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 vs. Houston Texans
Even without D’Andre Swift to garner carries at Carolina last week, Adrian Peterson was held to seven rushes for 18 yards, sharing the backfield with Kerryon Johnson. In the shutout loss, the entire Detroit offense couldn’t get things going all day, totaling less than 200 yards. Swift should return from the concussion protocol on Thursday, which relegates Peterson to second string. Be sure to monitor the injury report though, as the veteran could make for a sneaky start against Houston’s terrible run defense.
