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.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.

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.Has been operating as the clear cut lead back thus far.
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.Kelley emerged late last year and was serviceable, if not amazing. The Redskins drafted Samaje Perine this year., and many expect Kelley to be overtaken as starter by the end of the season. Still, for the moment Kelley is the starter, and that's not nothing.

Washed up or out for revenge? Probably closer to the former and at best likely somewhere in the middle.He's not an elite talent but he's got a great role in a good offense. sometimes thats all it takes

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
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.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.
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
 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.
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? 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.
