News From The Past 90 Days
Adrian Peterson says he's signing with Saints     -- Tue Apr 25 8:15 am --

One-year deal, plus one-year option
Adrian Peterson told ESPN's Josina Anderson Tuesday morning that he plans to sign with the New Orleans Saints on a two-year deal that is effectively a one-year deal plus a one-year option. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: $3.5 million is guaranteed for 2017. With Tim Hightower now is San Francisco, New Orleans needed to add some depth behind Mark Ingram. Peterson is not expected to take over Ingram's role but simply complement him. At age 31, Peterson played in only three games in 2016 averaging 1.9 yards per carry. However, Ingram injury history does give Peterson some upside if he can flash his old form. He'll be a mid-round selection in redraft leagues this summer.
Saints still talking deal with Adrian Peterson     -- Mon Apr 24 9:30 am --

Club keeping options open heading into draft
I'm hearing the #Saints are still very much involved with Adrian Peterson. Sides still talking about a short-term deal to bring him to NOLA. (Jeff Duncan on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: The Saints will likely weigh their options post-draft and might sign the veteran running back if they strike out on bringing in younger blood this week. Peterson's market has been cool, although its likely he'll land with a team on a short-term deal at some point before training camp.
Vikings fill RB void with Latavius Murray     -- Thu Mar 16 8:27 am --

Adrian Peterson era comes to an end
The Vikings early Thursday morning signed former Oakland Raiders running back Latavius Murray, and by doing so they likely closed the door on the Adrian Peterson era. Murray rushed for 2,278 yards and 20 touchdowns in his four years in Oakland, averaging 4.2 yards per carry. (Minneapolis Star Tribune)

FF Today's Take: Murray was a solid performer in Oakland but was part of a three-man committee last season capping his fantasy upside. In Minnesota he'll fill Adrian Peterson's big back role while sharing snaps with Jerick McKinnon. Minnesota's offensive line is a weak point in there offense meaning Murray will do well to achieve RB2 status in 2017.
Vikings will not pick up option on Adrian Peterson     -- Tue Feb 28 12:45 pm --

RB will become a free agent on March 9th
The Minnesota Vikings will not pick up their option on Adrian Peterson's contract for the 2017 season, the team announced Tuesday. Peterson will become an unrestricted free agent on March 9. "Adrian is an important part of the Minnesota Vikings organization," Spielman said in a statement. "We will continue to have conversations with his representatives and leave our future options open while determining what is best for both parties moving forward." (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: The Vikings weren't going to Peterson his $18 million option for 2017. Its possible the two sides could work out an agreement before free agency begins on March 9th but more than likely Peterson will be in another uniform. Peterson played in only three games in 2016 averaging 1.9 yards per carry.
