his role can evaporate quickly in a negative gamescript. The Redskins are underdogs once again this week, though it's tough to see the Bears running away with this game considering how bad their offense has looked. It's going to be tough for Peterson this week, though. The Redskins running backs have combined to total 52-of-60 yards after contact. On 26 carries, their offensive line has produced exactly eight yards before contact. Meanwhile, the Bears defense allowed the second-fewest points on the ground to running backs last year. Throughout the entire season, they allowed just 133.6 fantasy points on the ground, or 8.35 points per game. That's ridiculous. Knowing Peterson has caught just 22 passes over his 17 games with the Redskins, you can't get much there. He's a touchdown-or-bust low-end RB3 for this game.

Adrian Peterson rushes for just 25 yards but finds the end zone Sunday

Washington running back Adrian Peterson rushed the ball 10 times for 25 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He added two catches for seven yards.

Fantasy Impact

With second-year back Derrius Guice out indefinitely after undergoing another procedure on his knee, Peterson is once again the starter in Washington. He did not find much success on Sunday and might not find any more next week when Washington takes on the Chicago Bears and their talented defensive front.
