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.
