Detroit Lions WR Golden Tate will likely be shadowed by Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson in Week 1, according to Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com.
Huddle Up: Tate is the top option in the Detroit passing attack and a WR2 candidate most weeks, but a matchup with one of the best corners in the game downgrades him into WR3 territory in Week 1.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans won't be shadowed by Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson in Week 2, according to Cardinals defensive coordinator James Bettcher. Bettcher said there will be situations Peterson stays with Evans, but sometimes he will not.
Huddle Up: Evans is teetering on the WR1/WR2 divide, and he needs to avoid hamstring injuries and drops in order to get over the hump. It's not a good matchup for him this week, and we're leaning to that WR2 side in Week 2.

ESPN.com's Josh Weinfuss doesn't believe Arizona Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson will hold out for a new contract this offseason, as he heads into his fourth and final year of his rookie deal. Peterson said his representatives haven't heard back from the team yet about a new deal. However, Weinfuss says Peterson told him he loves playing football and doesn't like to be away from the field, which means he'd be unlikely to hold out and miss training camp time. Peterson can always play another season and approach a contract extension before the 2015 season, too.
Huddle Up: We'll see if Peterson's outlook is swayed by the deals signed in the FA CB market this offseason with several big names available, including Aqib Talib, Alterraun Verner and Sam Shields.

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.

Louisiana State University CB Patrick Peterson has decided that he will enter the 2011 NFL Draft, according to The Advocate's Randy Rosetta. Peterson is expected to be a top-five draft pick this year. "I might not ever be in this position again," Peterson said. "I thought it was a no-brainer to enter the draft now, while I'm still young."
Huddle Up: Peterson will be among the first cornerbacks off the board and may even be one of the draft's first five picks. He's a renowned return man as well as accomplished cover corner, which should make him popular in IDP leagues.
