Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
While AP could still be a factor for fantasy football if he got the touches, it's unlikely to happen in this backfield this season. Peterson will still be heavily involved, but Derrius Guice is still on the roster and Washington invested draft capital in the electric playmaker, Antonio Gibson. Peterson's nothing more than a RB3/RB4 in 2020. 
Ben Wasley
The Fantasy First Down
It's just possible 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 stays involved as an irritant and possible fantasy starter. I'd personally avoid drafting him though.LeSean McCoy didn't look like a spent force in 2019, putting together some productive games at times last season. Then again, it's not hard to look good in the Chiefs offence. There's no great landing spots left so he looks like he may veteran to Philly as an inconvenient veteran presence but without a major injury somewhere he's unlikely to do much of anything in 2020.
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 8-12 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.
