Adrian Peterson talks playing future

Minnesota Vikings beat writer Chris Tomasson is reporting that Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson said he believes he can play for another four seasons.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson will turn 33 on March 21 and is coming off of a severe neck injury suffered back in Week 12, which ultimately ended his 2017 season. Expected to be released by the Cardinals this offseason, Peterson would be entering his year-12 in the NFL if he is picked up by another club assuming Arizona does, in fact, move on from the future Hall of Fame running back whose best years are in the rearview. However, because he keeps himself in tremendous shape and has returned from injury to perform at a high-level in the past, he'll likely find himself on a roster by training camp, likely a contender in one last gasp to add a championship to his resume.

Adrian Peterson expected to be cut this offseason

Arizona Cardinals beat writer Mike Jurecki is reporting the team is expected to release RB Adrian Peterson this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson, who carries a $3.5 million cap hit next season, is not expected to return to the club in 2018. Reports are suggesting the Cardinals will move on from the aging running back this offseason. While Peterson, who will turn 33 in March, will likely sign an incentive-based deal with another team, his days of fantasy relevancy are far behind him. It wouldn't shock me if this was the end of the line for the future Hall of Famer.

Adrian Peterson to be placed on Injured Reserve

Adrian Peterson (neck) will be placed on Injured Reserve this week, ending his 2017 season.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson had a brief resurgence with the Cardinals, but that was more about an increase in volume than effectiveness. He reportedly plans to play in 2018, but likely won't be much of a fantasy factor unless he lands in the absolutely ideal situation.

Adrian Peterson RULED OUT Week 14

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) is officially ruled out for Week 14.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Peterson will miss his second straight game with a neck injury. While his injury is not expected to be season-ending, it wouldn't surprise me if they shut him down once they are officially eliminated from playoff contention, if they aren't already. Peterson could be dropped in most redraft formats with less than 12 teams.

Adrian Peterson inactive Week 13

Adrian Peterson was inactive as he is dealing with a neck issue. He had not practiced all week, so this wasn't much of a surprise. He should be good to go next week

Fantasy Impact

Peterson is likely to resume his role as lead back in Week 14 vs. the Titans. He has a nice matchup with the 49ers in next week and is on the RB2 radar
