Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson has spent time working with the offense during training camp. QB Carson Palmer said the team has a pretty big offense package for Peterson.
Huddle Up: This is one of those August tidbits that ends up not mattering much once the season starts. Before Arizona worries about getting Peterson the ball, it needs to take care of real offensive weapons like Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Floyd and Robert Housler. Once the season kicks off, Peterson will run a reverse and a go route every now and then and that's it. Peterson makes his money playing corner and returning punts. His impact on offense will be minimal.

Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson said there is not a cornerback in the league playing at a higher level than him this season. 'I believe I'm playing at a top level right now,' Peterson said. 'Week in and week out, I'm given the opposing team's No. 1 receiver and I believe I'm handling that pretty well so far.' Peterson has seven of the team's NFL-leading 22 interceptions this season, one in each of the last four games.
Huddle Up: It's hard to argue with Peterson's statement, and that makes for an intriguing showdown this Sunday as the CB will run up against fantasy's top WR in the Bears' Brandon Marshall.
