Fantasy Impact:

The 36-year old running back is certainly heading to the Hall of Fame but expressed his ongoing interest in joining a championship-caliber team for the 2021 season. Peterson stated during his interview that, "I'm looking for a team that's built to go and chase a championship. That's my ultimate goal and I feel like I can really help to contribute in accomplishing that. A team with a good quarterback, a good defense, and some playmakers on the offensive side of the ball." Last season in Detroit, Peterson managed to carry 156 times for 604 yards and seven touchdowns across all 16 regular-season games while rookie De'Andre Swift was developed and slowly ramped up into a featured back role throughout the season. It's likely Peterson will not be picked up by a team until the NFL Draft finishes next weekend but he certainly has a lot left in the tank and will be a great asset for a team looking to add running back depth or experience.
