Summary

When Derrius Guice tore his ACL last preseason, Washington threw a hail mary and signed 33-year old Adrian Peterson. Peterson, a future Hall of Famer, was coming off a lost 2017 where he ran for just 529 yards in ten games split between the New Orleans Saints and Arizona Cardinals. Most expected Peterson to be part of an uninspiring committee, but he proved the doubters wrong and delivered his eighth 1,000-yard season. Peterson started all 16 games, amassed 1,250 yards from scrimmage and scored eight touchdowns. He finished as the 16th ranked fantasy running back. Although Guice is back, Peterson re-signed this offseason and is too proud to cede the starting role without a spirited preseason battle. If he and Guice end up splitting touches, it's bad news for both. But if Guice can't make it back healthy or struggles, Peterson showed last year he can still be a viable asset. (August 9)
