Adrian Peterson can't repeat last week's heroics

Adrian Peterson had 11 carries for 21 yards as the Cardinals were shut out by the Rams 33-0. The Cardinals were down 23-0 at the half and never got the run game going.

Fantasy Impact

AP will have plenty of opportunity going forward with the loss of Carson Palmer to a broken arm. Peterson will be leaned on until he gets hurt or David Johnson returns.

Adrian Peterson leads Cardinals over Bucs

Adrian Peterson ran for 134 yards on 26 carries and found the end zone twice as the Cardinals beat Tampa Bay 38-33. His day could have been even bigger if a 41 yard run was not called back for holding on the other side of the field.

Fantasy Impact

A smashing debut for Peterson. If he's available in your league, run don't walk.

Adrian Peterson traded to Arizona Cardinals Tuesday

Adrian Peterson was traded from the New Orleans Saints to the Arizona Cardinals for a conditional draft pick on Tuesday, according to ESPN's Diana Russini on Twitter.

Fantasy Impact

This trade makes perfect sense for both teams, as Peterson seemed to be an odd fit for the Saints ever since signing with them in the offseason, and the Cardinals have had a non-existent rushing attack since losing David Johnson to injury. It may take some time for Peterson to get acclimated into a new offense, but a desperate Cardinals team figures to utilize him as much as possible right away.

Adrian Peterson nonexistent in London

Adrian Peterson rushed four times for four yards, and wasn't targeted in the pass game, in the New Orleans Saints Week 4 win over the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

What a fall from grace. Peterson played a career low six snaps, and one has to wonder if he's in the doghouse. With the way Alvin Kamara is upstaging him, he belongs on the waiver wire until further notice.

Adrian Peterson gains a modest 37 yards

Adrian Peterson carried the ball nine times for 33 yards and caught two-of-two targets for four yards in the New Orleans Saints Week 3 win over the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson couldn't find much running room in this game. He checked in to the game in different situations, so it seems as if head coach Sean Payton is still struggling to find Peterson a role in the offense. Keep Peterson stashed on your bench until he finds his groove in the offense, or better yet, use his name "equity" to trade for a better alternative for your RB3/4.
