2019 Outlook
Depth Chart
Age is just a number when you are a physical freak of nature like Adrian Peterson. After getting cast aside by the Saints and then a quick 10-game stint with the Cardinals, Peterson found a home with the Redskins last season after Derrius Guice suffered a season-ending knee injury in the preseason.

The ageless one rushed for just over 1000 yards and seven touchdowns on 251 carries, while adding 200 yards and a touchdown on 20 receptions through the air. His 10.8 fantasy points per game placed him 20th among running backs, just a tenth of a point behind Nick Chubb and Kerryon Johnson. AD scored more rushing touchdowns than Ezekiel Elliott and caught more passes for more yards than Marlon Mack, Chris Carson, and Lamar Miller.

The Redskins rewarded Peterson with a two-year contract that will pay him just over $5 million over the next two seasons. It is conceivable that the team could cut Peterson with a limited cap hit should Guice blow up, but all indications point to a committee approach on first down with Peterson and Guice both getting work to start the year.

Redskins RB coach on Guice/Peterson
"Ideally, you'd like to see a 50-50 or 60-40 [split]"
By: Mike Krueger | Wed Jun 19, 7:00 am

Washington Redskins
The Redskins can use two backs like this on a regular basis -- with Chris Thompson serving as a third-down back. But the every-down role will be manned by Derrius Guice and Adrian Peterson. "They're both different, but they're both explosive," Jordan said. "Ideally, you'd like to see a 50-50 or 60-40 [split]. But the thing is, all those guys can play on first, second or third down. Ultimately, if Guice is healthy, he would be the top back. That's why the Redskins drafted him in the second round. But they also will need Peterson. (ESPN)

FFToday's Take: Guice has some hurdles to overcome in training camp as he's recovering from an ACL injury, but if healthy, he should end up being the 1A to Peterson's 1B. Still, this may be a situation that frustrates fantasy owners during the season if the two are used in a 60-40 or 50-50 split as Redskins RB coach Randy Jordan suggests. Guice is currently going in round 5 of most 12-team redraft leagues with Peterson being drafted in round 10.
