It's remarkable what Peterson's been able to do at 33 and 34 years old, compiling nearly 2,000 rushing yards over the last two seasons, but now 35 years old and in a new offense with tons of competition, it's hard to see him making a difference in fantasy football. He's still likely to command 10-15 carries per game and maybe get goal-line duties, so he could fill in for a few weeks in flex spots for those who are desperate.

Adrian Peterson wants to play four more years in the NFL?

When asked about his playing future in the NFL, Redskins RB Adrian Peterson told TMZ Sports, “man, why not four more years? Why not?!”

Fantasy Impact

The future hall of famer will be 39 years in 2023, but doesn’t want to regret any decision he makes when he hangs up his cleats for a final time. He told TMZ Sports, "I don't want to ever be in a position where I look back and say, 'Man, I should have played two more years. I should of played another year.’ I want to enjoy it." Peterson is 4,000 yards away from Emmitt Smith’s all-time rushing record, but it seems unlikely he’ll touch that even with four more playing years. His best years are certainly behind him at this point, but Peterson can still be a contributor shouldering 10-12 carries per game with other pieces in the backfield. He’ll split time with Derrius Guice in 2020. Guice himself will look to overcome injuries that have plagued his two-year NFL career.
