Adrian Peterson has 2020 option picked up by Redskins

The Redskins exercised Adrian Peterson's 2020 option.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson, who will turn 35 this off-season, will be back in Washington next year. The former MVP led the team in rushing last season but will likely be a backup to Derrius Guice in 2020. Washington coach Ron Rivera made a point to say Peterson's leadership is vital to the organization right now.

Adrian Peterson rushes for 78 yards in season finale

Washington running back Adrian Peterson rushed 13 times for 78 yards and caught one pass for no yardage in Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson finishes the year with 898 yards rushing on 211 attempts with five touchdowns. He lost his starting gig to second-year back Derrius Guice twice, but he regained the job both times due to Guice's inability to stay on the field. With a new coaching staff and front office changes coming in Washington, it is not clear if Peterson will be back for another season.

Adrian Peterson finds the end zone for fourth straight game

Washington running back Adrian Peterson rushed 15 times for 36 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the New York Giants. He added two catches for 19 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson was mostly bottled up on Sunday, but he salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective by adding a short touchdown run. He has now scored a touchdown in four straight games despite not rushing for 100 yards since Week 9.

Adrian Peterson scores touchdown in third consecutive week

Washington running back Adrian Peterson rushed 16 times for 66 yards and a touchdown and caught three passes for 25 yards in Sunday's loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson has returned to lead back duties for Washington with Derrius Guice being placed back on injured reserve with an MCL sprain, and he has now scored a touchdown in three straight games.

Adrian Peterson (toe) does not practice Thursday

Washington running back Adrian Peterson did not practice with the team on Thursday due to a toe injury.

Fantasy Impact

While Peterson missed practice due to injury, this is likely more of a maintenance day for the veteran running back than anything else. Monitor his status heading into the weekend, but expect him to suit up and carry the bulk of the workload on Sunday against the Eagles, especially with Derrius Guice back on the shelf.
