Adrian Peterson scores in Week 17 win

Adrian Peterson rushed seven times for 63 yards and a TD in the Lions’ 37-35 loss to the Vikings on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Most of Peterson's production came on a 38-yard gainer, though he was able to cash in on a two-yard plunge for his only score of the day. Peterson is unlikely to return to Detroit in 2021, as he's publicly said that he wants to play with a contender next season.

Adrian Peterson totals 10 yards

Adrian Peterson rushed four times for 10 yards in the Lions' 47-7 loss to the Buccaneers on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson logged only four carries in this one and got no looks in the passing game. He's an afterthought in the offense and won't be worth playing in Week 17 when the Lions face the Vikings.

Adrian Peterson logs six touches in Week 15 loss

Adrian Peterson rushed six times for 23 yards in the Lions’ 46-25 loss to the Titans on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

With D'Andre Swift rocking and rolling, Peterson was an afterthought in Detroit's gameplan Sunday. He's well off the fantasy map for a tough Week 16 date with Tampa Bay.

Adrian Peterson totals 30 yards in Sunday's loss

Adrian Peterson rushed four times for seven yards and caught his lone target for 23 yards in the Lions’ 31-24 loss to the Packers on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson trailed D’Andre Swift in touches 11-5, and while AP saw more work than Kerryon Johnson, it was Peterson who was the odd man out. The other two backs found the end zone, while Peterson mustered just 30 scoreless yards. Peterson can’t be trusted as long as D’Andre Swift is healthy.

Adrian Peterson scores twice in Week 13 victory

Adrian Peterson carried 16 times for 57 yards and two TDs and failed to bring in his lone target in the Lions’ 34-30 win over the Bears on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

With D’Andre Swift ruled out once again, Peterson took the lead in the backfield and punched in a pair of scores for the second straight week. Next week's matchup with Green Bay is highly favorable for running backs, and if Swift is out or limited, Peterson will be in the RB2 conversation.
