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 said Thursday, Dec. 26, he wants to keep playing. 'I can see myself playing to 40,' the 34-year-old running back said. 'People look at that and say 'oh my god, that's crazy,' but they've been doing that for the past two years and -- surprise, surprise -- I'm still able to do it at a high level.'
Huddle Up: AD is 17th in the league in rushing and needs 180 more yards in the season finale for his ninth 1,000-yard season. He remains a RB3/flex option in the right matchups, but we'll see what his D.C. future is with a new coaching regime expected to take over this offseason.

Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson ran 15 times for 36 yards and a touchdown in Week 16 against the New York Giants while adding two grabs for 19 yards on his two targets.
Huddle Up: Peterson held onto the starting tailback job down the stretch, but it's unlikely he'll be up for a starting gig heading into 2020. He went undrafted in many leagues only to emerge as a legit fantasy option, so perhaps he'll surprise again next season.
