He's now finished with less than 30 rushing yards in three of the last four games, despite averaging almost 21 carries per game in that span. This is the end, guys. Outside of the first game he played with the Cardinals where he rushed for two touchdowns, everything has gone downhill and he hasn't scored again. Knowing that he's about to go against the best defense in the league, it's safe to say you want to avoid him in fantasy leagues if possible. I'd consider him an RB4 who could get a goal-line plunge, but if he doesn't score, he busts, big time.

Adrian Peterson had a tough day Sunday

Adrian Peterson ran for 26 yards on 14 carries in the Cards 31-21 loss to the Texans in Week 11. Arizona was never able to get the run game going, so even though the game was close through three quarters, Peterson did not see his usual volume. He did catch one pass for 13 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson is the Cardinals' bell cow, so expect more when he faces softer opposing defenses. Keep an eye on David Johnson's status, as his cast is off and has not been ruled out for the season.
