Adrian Peterson Fantasy Analysis

  • "3-headed monster" in Saints backfield
    The New Orleans Time-Picayune's Larry Holder expects the Saints to deploy a "3-headed monster" in the backfield this season. He points to the team's 2009 and 2011 backfields as blueprints. In 2009, Mike Bell led the team with 172 carries but caught just 4 balls. Pierre Thomas was next in line with 147 carries and 39 catches. Reggie Bush carried 70 times and hauled in 47 passes. In 2011, Mark Ingram was the lead ball carrier with 122 totes. He caught just 11 passes. Thomas again contributed in both facets, with 110 carries and 50 catches. Ditto with Darren Sproles, who carried 87 times and caught 86 balls. Holder pegs rookie Alvin Kamara for the Bush/Sproles pass-catching role. That'd presumably leave Ingram as Pierre Thomas as Adrian Peterson as Mike Bell/Mark Ingram. The actual touch distribution won't precisely match either of those past backfields. But the takeaway is that all 3 guys could have significant roles. That'd turn it into a fantasy football headache. Full Story

  • Peterson signs with Saints
    The Saints and RB Adrian Peterson have agreed to terms. It's officially a 2-year, $7 million deal, but it'll play out like a 1-year contract with a team option for 2018. Peterson gets $3.5 million guaranteed this year, but none of the remaining $3.5 million is guaranteed for 2018. The contract -- and how long it took him to get 1 -- tells us how the league views AP at this point. He's a 32-year-old RB with over 2,600 career touches and a lengthy injury history. Saints insider Nick Underhill fully expects Mark Ingram to remain New Orleans' lead back, with Peterson as the backup. So he'll essentially be replacing Tim Hightower, who tallied 133 carries and 22 catches last year. Those 155 touches are a good initial projection for Peterson. He'll likely settle into RB3 range in our 2017 rankings -- albeit with TD upside. Ingram's stock takes a hit, but he could still average somewhere around the 14.6 carries per game he has over the past 3 seasons. And his pass-catching role should remain. Full Story
