Peterson's rushing yards per game: 96, 20, 120, 6. It doesn't take master deduction skills to guess which games Washington won and lost. A home game against Carolina is too close a call to confidently trust or fade the veteran, who expressed optimism for playing despite dislocating his shoulder on Monday night. The Panthers have allowed 4.6 yards per carry, so the upside keeps him in RB2 territory despite the frustrating range of outcomes.

Adrian Peterson rushes for 97 in winning effort Sunday

Washington running back Adrian Peterson rushed 17 times for 97 yards in Sunday's win over the Carolina Panthers. He did not catch a pass.

Fantasy Impact

While Peterson did not find the end zone while playing through a shoulder injury, he was able to average 5.7 yards per carry in the win. With fellow running back Chris Thompson and wide receiver Jamison Crowder out with injuries of their own, Washington leaned on Peterson and other playmakers in a 23-17 win. Peterson and the Redskins take on the Cowboys at home in Week 7.
