Fantasy Impact:

The suspension was originally eight games but was reduced to six when Peterson withdrew his appeal. Peterson has reportedly been unhappy in Arizona for quite some time, and trade rumors have been buzzing as of late. The Chiefs have been the top team linked to a possible Peterson trade, but with news of the suspension and Kansas City’s recent history with players’ character issues, the team may decide not to further pursue a deal. The suspension may be the final straw for Arizona, and if the Cardinals can find a trade partner, Peterson is likely out the door.
