Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson, 35, said he hopes to play four more years in the NFL. 'I don't want to ever be in a position where I look back and say, 'Man, I should have played two more years,'' Peterson told TMZ Sports. ''I should have played another year.' I want to enjoy it. I'm still chasing a championship. You know, I still can play the game at a high level. For those reasons, and having that love and passion for the game, I'm going to continue to keep the ball rolling.'
Huddle Up: It remains to be seen whether a team will be willing to keep his hopes alive after this season, but he was very solid last season with 4.3 yards per carry over 211 carries. That was his best mark since his last big season in Minnesota in 2015. If anything, we have learned not to discount AD. Peterson is an unspectacular option as an RB4 in non-PPR formats.

Washington Redskins RBs Adrian Peterson and Derrius Guice will likely split carries to begin the season, while RB J.D. McKissic serves as the third-down back, according to Kyle Stackpole of the team's website. Stackpole also expects RB Antonio Gibson to be used 'in all sorts of different plays and formations.' However, he's not sure what kind of role would be left for RB Bryce Love.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson will have a role in the offense this upcoming season, according to offensive coordinator Scott Turner.
Huddle Up: Peterson is part of a crowded running back field for the Redskins but should still see some touches each game. Fantasy players should keep an eye on his role during training camp because he could be a depth running back on fantasy roster in 2020.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson is likely to see a reduced workload in 2020, due to the offseason acquisitions of RBs Peyton Barber and J.D. McKissic, the selection of RB/WR Antonio Gibson in the draft and the returns of RBs Derrius Guice and Bryce Love from knee injuries. However, there is a possibility that the Redskins could have multiple running backs on the field at the same time, based on early Zoom meetings Peterson has had with the coaching staff.
Huddle Up: Even if the 35-year-old Peterson ends up in a starting role for Washington, he should be viewed as no better than an RB3 or flex option at this stage of his career given the amount of competition on the roster. However, he is just 1,053 yards away from passing Barry Sanders for fourth place on the NFL's all-time rushing yards list, so there is plenty of motivation for Peterson to keep playing.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson's option was exercised by the team Wednesday, Feb. 19.
Huddle Up: Peterson will have a $2.25 million base salary and will count $3,109,375 against the salary cap. Peterson will serve as insurance as Derrius Guice must stay healthy. Peterson has RB5 appeal, but he has little upside.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson is 'likely' to have the second year of his contract picked up, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Peterson topped 1,000 yards from scrimmage in 2019, running for 898 yards and five scores. Derrius Guice should lead the backfield if he can stay healthy, but Peterson can be a RB3 or flex option if thrust into the starting role.
