Since the firing of Jay Gruden, Peterson has racked-up 127 carries over eight games. There are just nine running backs who have more carries in that time, and they're all considered every-week starters in fantasy. Should Peterson be in that conversation now that Derrius Guice is on the shelf again? The argument can be made, but against the Eagles this week? Probably not. Saquon Barkley's 66-yard performance on the ground Monday night was just the second time this year they've allowed a starting running back more than 43 rushing yards. Crazy, right? The 3.62 yards per carry they've allowed is the third-lowest mark in the league, and because of that, teams haven't run very much against them. Their opponents average just 19.0 carries per game, which partly has to do with the 60.2 plays they average, which is also one of the lower numbers in football. Meanwhile, the Redskins average a league-low 54.5 plays per game themselves. The percentage of rushing plays against the Eagles is just 37.6 percent, which ranks as the fifth-lowest mark in the league. We know Bill Callahan wants to stick to the run as long as possible, and if the Eagles struggle to score points like they did on Monday night, Peterson will get enough work to be fantasy relevant. It's still a big "if" which leaves him in low-end RB3 territory with minimal upside.
