Elliot Berkovits
Pack to the Future
Peterson once again finds himself in a starting role, albeit on what will likely be an underwhelming Washington offense. Expect rookie Antonio Gibson to see a decent amount of work, especially in the passing game but Peterson will still have value in standard leagues. He should also see the bulk of the goal-line carries.Hyde finds himself on a new team once again, this time in Seattle. While it is a run-heavy offense, I can't imagine Hyde being all that productive considering we haven't seen him play at a high level for years now. He's at best a handcuff to Chris Carson.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
It's remarkable what Peterson's been able to do at 33 and 34 years old, compiling nearly 2,000 rushing yards over the last two seasons, but now 35 years old and in a new offense with tons of competition, it's hard to see him making a difference in fantasy football. He's still likely to command 10-15 carries per game and maybe get goal-line duties, so he could fill in for a few weeks in flex spots for those who are desperate.After ranking 12th in rushing yards last year, Hyde accepted a one-year deal with the Seahawks. It seems that he's insurance for Rashaad Penny, who's expected to start the year on the PUP list. But you never know with Pete Carroll, as he's not afraid to shake things up. If Chris Carson struggles coming off his hip injury, or fumbles again, we could see Hyde in a 15-touch role. He's worth a pick in one of the last few rounds.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
With the recent news that Derrius Guice has been released by Washington, Adrian Peterson is the main beneficiary. While Peyton Barber, JD McKissic, and Antonio Gibson are all going to be involved in this offense too, AP should be moving up draft boards. He'll be a borderline RB3/RB4 this season and should be a consistent option to plug into your lineups on bye weeks, etc.Hyde's going to be relevant to begin the season if Rashaad Penny does indeed start the season on the PUP list. If you loaded up on WR early, Hyde's a perfect target late for instant RB production. He'll be a borderline RB2/RB3 when he's in the lineup.
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
It's becoming increasingly likely Adrian Peterson somehow leads this backfield again. AD was very solid in 2019 and clearly still has the juice to be an NFL running back. While the sensible approach would be giving the many youngsters a proper chance, it's very possible Peterson is the starter and with the release of Derrius Guice, he's now a low-end starter who comes with plenty of job security risk.Carlos Hyde's move to Seattle is inconvenient for everyone involved. He'll likely take 6-10 carries a week without providing any fantasy value but he's also not a good handcuff. If Carson goes down he'll likely still be in a committee and be little more than a flex start. I really don't like this situation and I'll have zero shares to start the year.
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Peterson admittedly continues to run well despite his advanced age, but given his situation, there's next to zero chance that he turns into someone you can start at any point. The Washington backfield consists of Peterson, Derrius Guice, Peyton Barber, J.D. McKissic, Antonio Gibson, and Bryce Love, and to the extent one back could break out of that pack, it's likely to be Guice. On a team going nowhere with a sub-par offense, there's no reason to waste a pick on Peterson.Hyde had a surprisingly effective year with Houston, despite joining the team just before the season started. He saw 245 carries and averaged 4.4 yards per carry, proving useful in fantasy despite not factoring into the passing game at all. He signed late this offseason with the Seahawks, which, for now, appear to be more of a hedge for Rashaad Penny's injury rather than a chance for Hyde to supplant Chris Carson. But, given Carson's fumbling issues and hip injury, Hyde makes a decent handcuff in a run-heavy Seattle scheme.
Kevin Wheeler
Draftwize
 Hyde is the new Frank Gore in that he now travels from team to team, mercilessly killing the value of the starting RB on that team. First it was Chubb, then Duke, and now Carson? @4for4_John
