Expert Note
View More Notes

Peterson is nearly the last man standing in Washington's offense. That could mean considerable carries or result in poor game scripts erasing his worth. The Cowboys have allowed 3.7 yards per carry, but the veteran posted 99 yards against them in Week 7's 20-17 win. Thursday's second encounter should also stay close by remaining frugal on points, and Peterson is a rare featured back averaging 18.5 touches per game. He's an RB2 despite the danger of Washington's offense self-destructing with Colt McCoy under center behind a depleted offensive line.

Adrian Peterson rushes for two touchdowns Sunday

Washington running back Adrian Peterson rushed 16 times for 51 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's loss to the Houston Texans. He did not catch any passes.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson rebounded from two quiet weeks to score twice in Sunday's loss, and he continues to have a strong season for the Redskins. With quarterback Alex Smith lost for the season, it is possible that Washington leans on the running back even more going forward.
