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, as he might even take over the head dog duties from Ingram if he can stay healthy.All early indications are telling us that Kelley was passed up by the rookie Perine in the Redskins' eyes. While he held the fort down in last year's second half,

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.Kelley has the lead job at the moment, but will have to fight Samaje Perine to keep that job, which if they both stay healthy, I think Perine wins.

Washed up or out for revenge? Probably closer to the former and at best likely somewhere in the middle.

Peterson is toast. I would leave the veteran off my draft board. Auction Value $7 Kelley impressed at times in 2016 but has to complete with rookie Samaje Perine for work this year. This will be a camp battle to watch. Auction Value $7

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.Most remember Kelley for his Monday night performance against the Packers in Week 11 where he finished with 137 yards and three touchdowns, but they must've missed what ensued after that game. In the final six games of the season, Kelley averaged just 3.33 yards per carry on 84 carries with two touchdowns. He averaged just 8.05 fantasy points per game in that stretch, leading the Redskins to go out and snag Samaje Perine in the NFL Draft. You shouldn't bet on him to retain the starting job for very long, as he can only contribute on first and second down, making the offense predictable.

 Kelley should be the lead back in Washington in 2017, but he does lose touches to RB Chris Thompson and the drafting of Oklahoma RB Samaje Perine could zap his goal line touches.

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? I'm not sure he keeps this job. I liked him when I was able to pick him up last year, but he doesn't play any part in the receiving game and I think Washington is going to be looking for a more dynamic player as their RB1.
