Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson carried 10 times for 25 yards and a touchdown and added to receptions for seven yards in Week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys. The touchdown was his 107th rushing score, moving him past Jim Brown for fifth on the all-time list.
Huddle Up: Peterson is going to have his ups and downs because he is so dependent on positive game-script on what figures to be an offense facing plenty of negative game scripts, so owners have to be happy when he scores a touchdown in one of the latter situations. Peterson figures to be little more than a middling flex option in Week 3 versus the Chicago Bears.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson will be the starting running back in Week 2 with RB Derrius Guice (knee) sidelined, according to head coach Jay Gruden.
Huddle Up: Peterson was inactive for Week 1 but should be receive for most of the carries this week. He played well last season and can still be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option in standard leagues.

Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be inactive for Week 1's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to a source.
Huddle Up: Peterson is completely healthy but Washington is sending a clear message that Derrius Guice is going to be the focal point of their offense, believing that he is capable of playing on all three downs. Despite his fantasy performance in 2018, Peterson can be safely dropped in most 10- and 12-team fantasy leagues, with the roster space better utilized for a young running back with upside.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson could be inactive Sunday, Sept. 8, if the team decides to dress only two running backs behind starter Derrius Guice and needs that third back to play on special teams.
Huddle Up: Peterson, a fantasy find last season with Guice injured, is quickly trending in the opposite direction this preseason. He can be safely dropped in most 10- and 12-team leagues at this point with the bench space better utilized for a RB with upside.

Washington Redskins RB Derrius Guice will get more carries than Adrian Peterson, according to comments made by head coach Jay Gruden to reporters Monday, Sept. 2.
Huddle Up: It's unclear whether Gruden intends to go this route only for the opener or the season, but it is good news for Guice's stock either way. The bad news is Trent Williams has no intention of reporting anytime soon and the supporting cast in Washington is far less than ideal. Making matters worse in the opener is the deep and talented defense of the Philadelphia Eagles. Nevertheless, Guice's talent may be enough for him to maintain low-end RB2 level production if he is afforded 15 touches per week.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) has a minor ankle injury and might miss another day of practice Monday, Aug. 5.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson participated in the team's minicamp Tuesday, June 4, and looks to be in 'pretty good shape,' according to a national reporter.
Huddle Up: Peterson continues to defy Father Time at age 34, but his 2019 fantasy outlook is clouded by the expected return of Derrius Guice, who is in line to assume the lead-back role in D.C. after missing his rookie campaign with a knee injury. Third-down back Chris Thompson also is in the mix, relegating Peterson to RB4/5 territory on draft boards.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson called his 2018 season 'decent' and believes he is capable of more in 2019.
Huddle Up: Peterson rushed for 1,042 yards last year, but with Derrius Guice expected to be fully recovered from a knee injury, Peterson looks like more of a handcuff than a fantasy starter.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson was officially re-signed to his two-year contract Monday, March 13. It was originally reported that the deal is worth $8 million.
Huddle Up: Peterson's return doesn't bode well for the fantasy ceiling of Derrius Guice, but Guice is still the running back to own from Washington. He has RB2 upside with less value in PPR leagues, while Peterson makes for a late-round handcuff.

Washington Redskins impending free-agent RB Adrian Peterson is re-signing to a two-year deal Wednesday, March 13. Financial terms were not disclosed.
Huddle Up: Peterson was a pleasant surprise last year, but he won't have much work with Derrius Guice and Chris Thompson healthy. He'll be more of a short-yardage and goal-lineback who only carries flex appeal.
