Not much to say about this guy. 
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Last season, the Saints put together a rushing attack that supported two fantasy relevant running backs. Now that AP is in town to replace Hightower, things should be no different. There is, of course, a much larger ceiling to be found with Peterson, and he might even take over the head dog duties from Ingram if he can stay healthy.Like him as a runner or not, he is a certified touchdown vulture. Mixon is now in play and expected to get the brunt of the work, while Bernard lingers as the more talented back, but Hill will still get his hands on the ball and sneak into the end zone enough times to be worthy of a roster spot.
Chet Gresham
WalterFootball
I don't know how much Peterson has left in the tank, but I'm also not going to write him off as too old. He's shown that he is a physical specimen, so maybe he'll last a couple more years. We'll see where he lands before inking in his ranking this year.Hill is a plodder who can be worthwhile with enough touches, especially at the goal line, so he has some value in standard leagues, but I'm down on him coming into the 2017 season. Joe Mixon has the ability to win the every-down job this season, and he should if healthy.
Staff Rankings
QB List
Peterson was out for the entire season last year with injury, and there is a real fear that he's fallen off a cliff. True, he did finish as the RB2 overall in 2015, but that was less a result of transcendent play on hs part, and more due to the fact that all of his competition was injured. Now at 32, he finds himself on a new team with a ton of competition. Mark Ingram is likely to be the early carry back, and rookie Alvin Kamara will be in on third downs. This does not leave much of a role for Peterson. Because Peterson was at one point a pro-bowl caliber rusher, his name alone is inflating his ADP, don't get sucked in. If you find yourself tempted to draft peterson, just remind yourself that he once arrived to his own birthday party riding a camel and dressed as Aladdin. Burn that image into your brain, and draft someone else.Hill is the nominal lead back for two-down duties to kick off the season in Cincinnati. However, he's been largely ineffective and with the arrival of rookie phenom Joe Mixon, most analysts believe Hill will not be starting by the end of the year.
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Washed up or out for revenge? Probably closer to the former and at best likely somewhere in the middle.He could still be the starter and end up hogging goal line work, keep an eye on this RB depth chart
Sablich Brothers
5th Down Fantasy
Impossible to know what to expect from 32-year-old legend, but looked strong during OTAs; played only three games last season due to torn meniscus.Hard to believe still only 24 years old; 3.7 YPC over last two seasons; should still see fair share of goal line carries.

RotoExperts
Peterson is toast. I would leave the veteran off my draft board. Auction Value $7 Back to back season of fewer than four yards per carry and the arrival of Joe Mixon spell trouble for Hill. Auction Value $1
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Most have dubbed him as dead at this point in his career, though I'm not sure that's the case. The problem, however, is that Mark Ingram is likely better than him at this moment. He should see something similar to the role Tim Hightower had the last few years, making him a touchdown-dependent flex play.After averaging 5.1 yards per carry in an impressive rookie campaign, Hill never regained that form, averaging just 3.67 yards per carry over the last two seasons. When looking at small sample sizes, things get dicey, but Hill has had plenty of time to showcase his abilities, as he garnered 222 carries in 2016 and 223 carries in 2015. Joe Mixon will come in and steal a lot of work right away, though Hill may still get a majority of the goal-line work, as he's scored 29 rushing touchdowns over the last three years, which is tied for the most in the NFL over that span.
Kevin Wheeler
NFL Mock
I stupidly ranked him as the #1 RB last year, he's won me lots of money in the past, but lost me most of my best-ball leagues last year. I don't see any teams even interested in him at this point, #blacklisted? He was a bust in 33% of his games, and Cincinnati lost their LT & RG in free agency, Hill is doomed. Especially after they drafted Mixon.
