Summary

Adrian Peterson was released in early September, even though every beat writer covering the team saw him as the clear No. 1. Washington's new coaching staff has the leash to rebuild around youngsters Antonio Gibson and Bryce Love, which sadly may be the end of Peterson's Hall of Fame career. On the other hand, this could also be a financial decision with plans to re-sign him after Week 1 once his salary isn't guaranteed. (September 4)

Lions | Adrian Peterson struggles in Week 11 (Sun Nov 22, 04:26 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Adrian Peterson rushed for 18 yards on seven carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 11.

Our View: The Panthers had been surrendering some huge fantasy games to running backs this year, but the Lions run blocking could not open any holes for Peterson. He's only a deep desperation play against the Texans even if D'Andre Swift isn't cleared to play.

Lions | Adrian Peterson, Kerryon Johnson to share time (Sun Nov 22, 11:04 AM) - Detroit Lions RBs Adrian Peterson and Kerryon Johnson are expected to split carries for Week 11's game versus the Carolina Panthers, with Peterson serving as the starter.

Our View: Peterson still has a high ceiling because of the suspect Panthers run defense and his ability to get in a groove when he is fed. Johnson has a little what the heck flex appeal in PPR leagues.
