    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Cardinals) said he would be open to signing with the New Orleans Saints this offseason even though things did not work out between the two sides last season.

    Huddle Up: The Saints are not looking to add a veteran running back at this point, but Peterson could be an option for the team during training camp with Mark Ingram suspended for the first four games. Peterson will have a limited role no matter where he signs and could be a late-round option in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 5/12/2018 1:40pm ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Cardinals) would be an option that New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton would consider if the team pursues a veteran running back.

    Huddle Up: Peterson has not received a lot of interest this offseason, so he may have to wait until training camp to sign with a team. He would only be a late-round option if he sees a decent amount of touches. The Saints likely will go with Alvin Kamara as their main back until Mark Ingram returns from his suspension. Kamara and Ingram can be at least No. 2 running back in leagues.

  • Posted: 5/10/2018 5:46pm ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Cardinals) said he is 'fully healthy' and 'ready to go' for the upcoming season. In addition, he said his neck has been cleared by 'multiple doctors.'

    Huddle Up: Peterson showed some flashes of his old dominant self this past season after he latched onto the Cardinals following his release in New Orleans. The 33-year-old ultimately finished with 529 yards on 156 carries and found the end zone twice. He probably still has something to offer, but more so as a complementary or change-of-pace back.

  • Posted: 3/13/2018 2:11pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson was officially released Tuesday, March 13.

    Huddle Up: Peterson gave the Cardinals some quality games, but he'll turn 33 years old next week and is comfortably over the hill in running back years. He may yet play a complementary role somewhere else, but he is merely a faint blip on the fantasy radar at this point in his storied career.

  • Posted: 3/12/2018 10:45pm ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Cardinals) said the Arizona Cardinals doctor told him that his neck is 'completely healed' after reviewing scans and that he is 'still looking forward to playing next season.'

    Huddle Up: Peterson's tenure with the Saints at the onset of the 2017 season turned out to be a huge flop, though that was more so because they had Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram carrying the load. When AP arrived in Arizona, he was decent and exhibited flashes of his old self, so perhaps there is still something left in the tank. Of course, that hinges on just where he ends up next.

  • Posted: 3/12/2018 5:07am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be released Monday, March 12, according to a source. He is due a $750,000 bonus on the third day of the league year. He could still return to Arizona later.

    Huddle Up: Peterson's fantasy value is pretty murky right now. If he returns to Arizona, he'd be an RB4 for depth.

  • Posted: 2/3/2018 10:21am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson will turn 33 years old in March, but he recently told the St. Paul Pioneer Press' Chris Tomasson he wants at least four more years.

    Huddle Up: Peterson is a physical marvel and was able to carry the Arizona offense on his shoulders on occasion after he was traded from the New Orleans Saints, but any running back wanting to play into his mid-30s is living on borrowed time. Injuries are also a major concern. The Cardinals are expected to release Peterson, meaning he'll need to learn his third offense in about a year if he plays in 2018. While it is never wise to bet against him, Peterson is nearing the end of the line as a useful fantasy option.

  • Posted: 1/31/2018 11:31am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be released, according to Fox Sports Radio's Mike Jurecki. Peterson's salary cap hit would be $3.5 million for 2018.

    Huddle Up: With David Johnson returning and Peterson turning 33 years old and injury prone, it makes sense for the Cardinals to part ways with the veteran running back. It's unlikely that Peterson will ever be fantasy relevant again considering his age and injury history.

  • Posted: 12/14/2017 7:33pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a neck injury, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: With Peterson out for the year, Kerwynn Williams should remain a low-end, volume-based RB2 for the remainder of the season.

  • Posted: 12/14/2017 10:39am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) was not able to practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Peterson may not play again this season, so we'll continue to see heavy doses of Kerwynn Williams with dollops of D.J. Foster mixed in. While Williams has seen a healthy amount of carries the last two games, his production has been more flex-like than that of an RB2.

  • Posted: 12/13/2017 1:25pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) may not play again this season as head coach Bruce Arians said he has 'no idea' if Peterson will recover from his neck injury in time.

    Huddle Up: Arians didn't exactly take a glass-half-full approach with Peterson's status. He didn't even mention Peterson being able to practice soon. In the meantime, Kerwynn Williams and D.J. Foster will continue to man the backfield. Williams is no more than a flex dart.

  • Posted: 12/8/2017 6:58pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) has already been ruled out for Week 14, and head coach Bruce Arians said there is no timetable for Peterson's return.

    Huddle Up: Kerwynn Williams is expected to start in Peterson's place, and he should be a volume-based RB3 until Peterson returns.

  • Posted: 12/8/2017 4:14pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) did not practice Friday, Dec. 8, and he has been ruled out for the Week 14 game against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: Peterson's injury is not believed to require surgery. With Peterson on the shelf, Kerwynn Williams figured to lead the charge against the Titans, but he is only worth using as a flex fantasy option against a tough Tennessee defense.

  • Posted: 12/8/2017 8:29am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) is likely out for Week 14, according to sources. The injury doesn't require surgery.

    Huddle Up: Kerwynn Williams (ribs) returned to practice Thursday and figures to see most of the work in the backfield. He had his best game last week since his rookie season in 2014 and figures to be a solid flex candidate in a tough matchup against the Tennessee Titans.

  • Posted: 12/7/2017 1:50pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 7.

    Huddle Up: Peterson may need to practice Friday, Dec. 8, if he wants a chance to play in Week 14. Owners should keep an eye on the situation but will need other options ready in case Peterson is ruled out again.

  • Posted: 12/6/2017 8:19am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) won't practice Wednesday, Dec. 6, according to head coach Bruce Arians. Peterson will have to be cleared by doctors in order to play in Week 14.

    Huddle Up: Kerwynn Williams rushed 16 times for 97 yards last week, and there is little reason to push Peterson to play with the team out of contention. The Tennessee Titans pose a tough matchup, but Williams is a decent flex candidate.

  • Posted: 12/4/2017 11:32am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson's (neck) status for Week 14 will ultimately be decided on by Peterson and team doctors.

    Huddle Up: If Peterson misses another week then Kerwynn Williams should once again start in the backfield. Williams ran exceptionally well last week in taking over for Peterson to the tune of 97 rushing yards. He'll be a low-end RB2 or flex play if Peterson is sidelined.

  • Posted: 12/3/2017 7:31am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) remains a game-time decision for Week 13's game against the Los Angeles Rams but the team is pessimistic about his chances of playing, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Peterson did not practice at all during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. RB Kerwynn Williams is expected to start and should be viewed as a low-end RB2 or flex option, while RB D.J. Foster is worth considering as a flex option in PPR fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/1/2017 7:04pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB D.J. Foster is expected to step into a bigger role if RB Adrian Peterson (neck) is unable to play against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 13, according to head coach Bruce Arians. 'Carries could easily fall into his lap,' Arians said. 'Quickly.'

    Huddle Up: Kerwynn Williams would likely start if Peterson can't play, but the prospect of more carries in addition to his role in the passing game make Foster a solid flex candidate in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 12/1/2017 12:28pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) will be a game-time decision versus the Los Angeles Rams in Week 13, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: While there is no guarantee as to who Arians would turn to, the most logical candidate is D.J. Foster. Arians recently praised his new third-down back, so given the attrition Arizona is experiencing at running back this season - David Johnson (wrist), Peterson, Kerwynn Williams (ribs) and Elijhaa Penny (knee) - he could be in line to start this weekend. Foster is a gifted receiver, making him an intriguing option if he gets the nod in what figures to be a game with negative game script.

  • Posted: 11/30/2017 4:55pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) did not participate in practice Thursday, Nov. 30.

    Huddle Up: The Cardinals are optimistic about Peterson's availability, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. He is coming off a decent Week 12 performance but will be facing a solid Los Angeles Rams defense. He could be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option if he plays.

  • Posted: 11/29/2017 12:50pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) was not able to practice Wednesday, Nov. 29, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: Arizona's running back situation is cloudy at this point in the week. If Peterson keeps missing practice we may be forced to seriously consider starting D.J. Foster, especially in PPR leagues. It's still too soon to make a decision, though, so keep tabs on Peterson's status over the next few days.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 8:42pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson rushed 20 times for 79 yards in Week 12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars and he added four receptions for 20 yards on five targets.

    Huddle Up: Peterson has failed to find the end zone in each of his five games since his explosive team debut on Oct. 15 against the Buccaneers. His four grabs were a season best and he remains a decent low-end RB2 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 13 against the visiting Rams.

  • Posted: 11/19/2017 6:04pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson rushed 14 times for 26 yards in Week 11 against the Houston Texans and he had just one catch for 13 yards.

    Huddle Up: Peterson had two 100-yard games in his first three appearances with the team, and it looked like vintage AP. However, he has managed just 55 yards on 35 carries, or a paltry 1.6 yards per tote. That's simply not going to do. Things don't figure to get better against a stout Jaguars defense in Week 12.

  • Posted: 11/11/2017 7:31pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson became the seventh player in NFL history to gain less than 30 rushing yards while carrying the ball 20 or more times when he rushed for 29 yards on 21 carries against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10.

    Huddle Up: In four games since joining the Cardinals, Peterson has rushed for more than 130 yards twice and less than 30 yards twice. He will be a high-risk, high-reward RB2 against the Houston Texans in Week 11.

  • Posted: 11/9/2017 9:21pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson carried the ball 21 times for 29 yards (1.4 YPC) during the team's 22-16 loss to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10. Peterson caught one pass for 13 yards.

    Huddle Up: You knew the Seahawks would load up to stop the run, but 29 yards on 21 carries is brutal production. That gives AD two huge games and two miserable games since joining the Cardinals. Expect the Houston Texans to adopt a similar gameplan in Week 11, but with the extra rest Peterson could return to RB2 status.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 7:23pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson carried a career-high 37 times for 159 yards in Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers. He had the most carries in NFL history for a running back over the age of 30.

    Huddle Up: Peterson racked up his second 100-yard game since coming over from the New Orleans Saints in a trade, re-emerging as a solid RB2 fantasy option in most leagues. He and his teammates have a quick turnaround before hosting the Seahawks in Week 10 on Thursday night.

  • Posted: 11/3/2017 8:18am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be featured in Week 9 against the San Francisco 49ers. 'Feed the beast,' offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin said of Peterson. 'It's like an old stove. The more wood you put in it, the hotter it gets. We've just got to make sure we feed him the ball so he can get comfortable.'

    Huddle Up: The Niners have allowed the most fantasy points to running backs the last five weeks and all season. However, a big chunk of that has been through the air, which Peterson doesn't excel at. He should still see enough looks to be in the low-end RB2 realm.

  • Posted: 10/22/2017 5:13pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson rushed 11 times for just 21 yards in Week 7 against the Los Angeles Rams in London.

    Huddle Up: Peterson and the Arizona offense have two weeks to figure it out with a bye. It will be a challenge for Arizona going forward, as the team lost Carson Palmer to a broken arm and he is expected to miss at least eight weeks.

  • Posted: 10/16/2017 10:01am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson played 48-of-65 offensive snaps in Week 6 - his first game with the team since he was acquired from the New Orleans Saints earlier in the week.

    Huddle Up: It's a shocking workload for a player who looked like he had roughly four days to prepare, but the 32-year-old Peterson continued to defy logic with 134 yards rushing and two touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He's back in the RB2 conversation in Week 7 as the Cardinals face a Los Angeles Rams run defense that has struggled to contain opposing running games all season long.

  • Posted: 10/15/2017 8:07pm ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson finished with 26 carries for 134 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-33 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Playing from ahead against Tampa Bay's banged-up group of linebackers certainly helped Peterson pad his numbers, but it looks like he has a little more left in the tank than he was being given credit for. It might not hurt to try to sell high on Peterson after his big performance, but RB2 production isn't out of the question while David Johnson is out.

  • Posted: 10/12/2017 8:47am ET

    Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson will not play on third downs, according to head coach Bruce Arians.

    Huddle Up: That was to be expected. Andre Ellington has received 24 targets on third down in the last two weeks. Peterson should be owned, but the expectations should be modest. Ellington keeps RB4 value in PPR formats.

  • Posted: 10/10/2017 8:50am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson was acquired by the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday, Oct. 10, for a conditional draft pick, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: AP has rushed for 2.39 yards per carry the last two seasons. Yes, there were scheme questions, offensive line questions and questions of what he has left. It's pretty clear he has lost a step. However, the Cardinals are desperate, and if Peterson has anything left to give - this is his last chance. Pick him up for depth in deeper leagues, but his value is heavier in non-PPR formats.

  • Posted: 9/29/2017 4:02pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 29, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.

    Huddle Up: Peterson has been receiving around 10 touches over the last two games and likely will have a similar workload against the Miami Dolphins. He should be avoided in most leagues because he has not been very productive in new role.

  • Posted: 9/29/2017 6:10am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson (knee) returned to practice Friday, Sept. 29.

    Huddle Up: Peterson hasn't had a big enough role on the team to consider in fantasy against the Miami Dolphins.

  • Posted: 9/28/2017 6:20am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson was absent from practice during the portion open to the media Thursday, Sept. 28.

    Huddle Up: Peterson's fantasy value has dwindled to the point that he's probably not worth a flex play against the Miami Dolphins.

  • Posted: 9/24/2017 1:41pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson ran nine times for 33 yards in Week 3 at Carolina and he added two receptions for four yards on his two targets.

    Huddle Up: Peterson has looked like a shell of his former self with the Saints, but Sean Payton keeps going to him for double-digit touches per week. However, Peterson is seeing about half the touches as starter Mark Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara is coming on, too. The fantasy future of Peterson is murky at best.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 6:59pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson carries eight times for just 26 yards in Week 2 against New England.

    Huddle Up: It's strange seeing Peterson in a reserve role, but he has managed a total of 14 touches with 44 rushing yards through two games. It's the 2017 fantasy season and so far Peterson has been a very small part of it after years of domination.

  • Posted: 9/17/2017 7:09am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson does not have any problems with head coach Sean Payton and the team has no plans of trading or releasing Peterson, according to sources. The team hopes to run the ball more in Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Peterson could receive some more snaps this week but is still sharing snaps with Mark Ingram. He will be facing a solid New England Patriots defense and probably should only be considered a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 9/15/2017 6:20am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson said he 'didn't sign up for nine snaps,' but he said he and head coach Sean Payton are on the same page.

    Huddle Up: Peterson had six carries for 18 yards, but Mark Ingram had six carries for 17 yards and Alvin Kamara had seven rushes for 18 yards. The load was split up evenly, and the Saints trailed for most of the game, which will keep Peterson on the sidelines a lot. What's clear is the talk that he might be mixed into the passing game probably isn't going to happen. All three backs are matchup plays in the RB3 range.

  • Posted: 9/11/2017 7:57pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson played only nine snaps in the club's Week 1 game Monday, Sept. 11, against the Minnesota Vikings, en route to logging just six rushes for 18 yards.

    Huddle Up: In Peterson's defense, the Saints were trailing pretty much the whole way, which kept him on the sidelines as New Orleans was mostly passing in order to catch up. He also managed to tie Alvin Kamara for the team lead in rushing yards, but it's still an alarming usage rate for the future Hall-of-Famer. With the Patriots up next, the Saints are more likely to find themselves trailing again for the majority of the contest, making it tough to deploy Peterson as a flex option.

  • Posted: 8/26/2017 9:15pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson rushed six times for 15 yards in a 13-0 preseason win over the Houston Texans Saturday, Aug. 26.

    Huddle Up: One lackluster showing in the preseason isn't cause for concern, but the state of the backfield in New Orleans is. Peterson figures to split carries with Mark Ingram to some degree and give way to Alvin Kamara on passing downs. Of course, fewer carries could translate to more production if Peterson stays healthy and fresh all season, but expecting him to be more than a RB3 is dangerous.

  • Posted: 8/9/2017 10:03pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson (rest) will not play in the team's preseason opener Thursday, August 10, against the Cleveland Browns.

    Huddle Up: It's pretty standard to see aging veterans not play in the first preseason game, so owners have nothing to worry about here. As has been the case all summer, Peterson should still be viewed as a top sleeper candidate, having the potential to legitimately meet an RB2 ceiling in the Saints' high-octane offense if he stays healthy.

  • Posted: 7/11/2017 3:07pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson is motivated by those who doubt his age, ability, health, etc. 'I'd be lying to say [the doubt] doesn't [motivate me],' Peterson said. 'You want to do things people say you can't do.'

    Huddle Up: There is credence to the doubt surrounding Peterson. At 32 years old, Peterson has missed almost two full seasons in the last three years. He'll be splitting playing time with Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara to boot. Nonetheless, he is Adrian Peterson, after all. View him as a flex option in a high-scoring, high-flying offense.

  • Posted: 7/11/2017 9:06am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson has had more than 400 receiving yards only once in his career, but he is shooting for 500 in 2017. 'I was attracted to playing with (Drew) Brees, a guy who is good at distributing the ball to different players. I know in this system, I'll get some opportunities to catch the ball in space. Drew Brees, he'll get the ball to me,' Peterson said.

    Huddle Up: Brees loves throwing to his running backs, but 500 receiving yards is a big ask in a backfield which also has Mark Ingram, Alvin Kamara and maybe even Travaris Cadet vying for touches. Peterson will be fortunate to top 1,000 total yards this season, and owners should be thrilled if he can give them roughly 750 yards rushing and 350 receiving to go along with eight to 10 touchdowns. He's on the RB2 borderline and probably should be drafted as a RB3.

  • Posted: 7/11/2017 8:14am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson is likely on tap for 150 carries, according to Saints color commentator Deuce McAllister. 'If he gets (about 150 carries), he'll get probably 700 to 1,000 yards,' McAllister said. Peterson is keeping his weight between 215 and 219 pounds with 6 percent body fat. Peterson, who has totaled more than 400 receiving yards once, said he'd like to tally 500 receiving yards.

    Huddle Up: It's important not to get overhyped about the 32-year-old's aspirations. He is a freak of nature, but very few backs have been this productive at his age. They also have Pro Bowler Mark Ingram and third-rounder Alvin Kamara, who projects as a Darren Sproles type. Peterson is an RB3 in fantasy that could receive a boost in this dynamic offense if everything goes right.

  • Posted: 6/8/2017 5:56am ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson said he wants to play until age 37 or 38.

    Huddle Up: The 32-year-old has drawn rave reviews at practice, and he could be a solid contributor in the tapered role he's expected to have. Mark Ingram will at least have a 50-50 split with him, and with durability a concern at AD's age, there is some risk taking him as an RB3.

  • Posted: 6/7/2017 8:02pm ET

    New Orleans Saints RB Adrian Peterson has his teammates 'gushing' over his burst and stride length that he's exhibited during organized team activities thus far.

    Huddle Up: Peterson's presence on an already high-powered Saints offense will be one of the more crucial storylines to watch this upcoming season, with many believing the former Minnesota Viking can no longer play at a high level. However, early reports would suggest the opposite, and with Peterson having a chip on his shoulder, it might not be surprising to see the former NFL MVP provide some useful stats for fantasy owners in 2017. Definitely monitor him in drafts.

  • Posted: 5/27/2017 3:03pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon trained with former teammate Adrian Peterson in Houston during the offseason and weighs 211 pounds, up from 200 a season ago. McKinnon is reportedly not only stronger, but faster as well. 'I?m just ready to prove myself and show how much better I?ve got in the offseason,' McKinnon said.

    Huddle Up: The Vikings added Latavius Murray and second-round pick Dalvin Cook this spring, but McKinnon boasts enough talent to give both a run for their money. Cook and Murray will likely end up winning out as the team has invested more money in them, although it will be difficult to keep a stronger and faster McKinnon off the field. If his offseason training is as good as he thinks it was, McKinnon could force the Vikings to go with a three-man committee backfield.
