Fantasy Impact:

With 35-year-old Adrian Peterson slated to open the year as the starting running back in Washington, rookie Antonio Gibson was believed to be holding a small lead over Love in the pecking order. That doesn't seem to be the case after Love was given first-team reps with Peterson sidelined on Wednesday. Much like Gibson, there have been many positive reports on Love's performance so far in camp with offensive coordinator Scott Turner saying, "He's looking good. He's another guy we're going to throw in the mix and see how he does. I've been pleased with him." With Gibson sure to be involved due to his talent in the receiving game, it will almost take an injury to Peterson for Love to be a fantasy relevant player this season.
