Adrian Peterson re-signing with Redskins for two years

Josina Anderson of ESPN reports Adrian Peterson is re-signing with the Redskins on a two-year contract.

Fantasy Impact

The financial terms of the contract are not yet known, but it’s suprising to see Peterson get a two-year deal at his age. He was basically out of the league at this time last year before having a resurgence with Washington once Derrius Guice tore his ACL. Guice is due back this season so it’ll be interesting to see how carries are divided between the two backs.

Adrian Peterson to test free agent market

Adrian Peterson is expected to test the free agent market.

Fantasy Impact

Washington reportedly wants to re-sign the veteran RB, but given the return of Derrius Guice, it's not clear how large of a role Peterson would have in D.C. Peterson showed that he still has some fantasy production left in the tank in 2018, but his value will ultimately come down to his landing spot and role to start the 2019 season.

Adrian Peterson gets blanked by Eagles on Sunday

Washington running back Adrian Peterson rushed four times for no yards in the team's 24-0 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson was not alone in getting shut down by the Philadelphia defense on Sunday as the team was shut out and managed just 89 total yards of offense. He finishes the season with 1,042 yards rushing and seven touchdowns to go with 20 receptions for 208 yards and one touchdown.

Adrian Peterson rushes for 119 yards in loss

Washington running back Adrian Peterson rushed 26 times for 119 yards and caught one pass for eight yards in Saturday's loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson's 119 yards put him up over 1,000 rushing yards for the season. In 15 games, he has rushed 247 times for 1,042 yards and seven touchdowns. While certainly not the fantasy stud that he was in his prime, he delivered a solid season for a running back whose ADP was outside of the top 100. He will look to close out the season with a fourth 100-yard rushing game against the Eagles in Week 17.

Adrian Peterson held in check by Jaguars Sunday

Washington running back Adrian Peterson rushed 19 times for 51 yards and caught two passes for 20 yards in Sunday's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

The Jaguars focused on stopping Peterson on Sunday and were largely successful despite losing the game. With Washington starting Josh Johnson at quarterback, this is likely to be the game plan they see against the Tennessee Titans next week, as well.
