Summary

Adrian Peterson wasn't supposed to be Washington's leading rusher in 2018, but he was. He wasn't supposed to lead the team in 2019, but he did. Will he make it three for three in 2020? That likely comes down to whether the team thinks highly of youngsters Bryce Love and Antonio Gibson. At 35 years old, Peterson should be awaiting his call from Canton for enshrinement, but instead he's trying to move further up the all-time rushing ranks. Peterson enters the year with 14,216 career rushing yards (5th all time) but needs another 1,054 yards to pass Barry Sanders for 4th place. While it's hard to see him passing Sanders this year, he could still be a viable RB3 or flex options against favorable matchups. (August 7)
