NFL Mock
 McCoy is testing out his injured hamstring in preparation for Sunday's home game against Detroit, though according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, he "does not have a great chance" of suiting up.
Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Peterson has fallen apart over the back half of the season and now lines up against one of the best run defenses in football and next to a fourth-string quarterback. You can easily find 30 better options than him this week including several who are on the waiver wire. 
Scott Engel

Lack of supporting cast crushes outlook 
Andrew Gould
FantasyPros
Given a great matchup against the Giants, Peterson turned 10 carries into 16 yards behind a battered Washington offensive line. Falling behind 40-0 is not quite an optimal game script for the featured runner, and it'd be foolish to expect Josh Johnson to end the four-game losing streak at Jacksonville. Benching Peterson would be a much easier choice had the Jaguars not just gotten stiffed-arm to death for 238 yards and four touchdowns by Derrick Henry. It's admittedly a tougher call, but managers should run away from Washington's offense unless in need of a deeper flex play. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Even after Derrick Henry's 238-yard, four-touchdown performance against the Jaguars, they've still allowed the eighth-fewest points to fantasy running backs. Prior to that game, they hadn't allowed a running back more than 106 yards on the ground and hadn't allowed anyone to finish better than the RB10 against them. Of the running backs who've finished with more than 15 PPR points against the Jaguars (five of them), all of them totaled at least 17 touches, a number Peterson hasn't totaled since Smith was the quarterback, which was back in Week 10. Over the last three weeks with backups, he's totaled just 12, 9, and 10 carries while losing six carries to Chris Thompson over the last two weeks. Prior to the Titans game, the Jaguars opponents had averaged just 16.0 carries per game against them over the last five games, so volume may be hard to come by for Peterson. The Jaguars opponents also average just 60.9 plays per game (9th-fewest), so it's not a week to expect a bounce-back from Peterson. He should be considered a middling RB3 who could wind up with less than five fantasy points.
