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.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Guice to have MRI on injured knee
42 yards on five carries in Week 14
By: Mike Krueger | Mon Dec 9, 7:20 am

Washington Redskins
Derrius Guice left the game after being tackled awkwardly in the second quarter and was scheduled to have an MRI afterward. Guice declined to speak to reporters following the game, but was seen walking in the locker room without any noticeable distress. (Washington Post)

FFToday's Take: Guice has a history of knee issues including a torn ACL and a torn meniscus in Week 1. Depending on the severity, the Redskins could shut Guice down for the remainder of the season leaving the running back duties to Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson.


Injury Adrian Peterson gets MRI done on ankle
Washington faces Vikings on Thursday
By: Doug Orth | Mon Oct 21, 5:30 pm

Washington Redskins
Redskins running back Adrian Peterson underwent an MRI on an ankle this morning, per source. The results weren't yet known. Peterson suffered the injury in Sunday's 9-0 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. He rushed 20 times for 81 yards and fumbled once. Peterson clearly wants to be ready for this week: The Redskins play at his former team, Minnesota, on Thursday. (ESPN - John Keim)

FFToday's Take: Peterson handled another heavy workload (20 carries) in Week 8 and has 45 touches in two games under interim head coach Bill Callahan, but this is the second different injury in as many weeks he has sustained. The 34-year-old figures to be highly motivated to play on a short week against his former team (Minnesota Vikings), but only time will tell if he can. Wendell Smallwood would likely see the bulk of early-down work should Peterson be ruled out for Thursday.


Adrian Peterson gearing up for heavy workload?
Interim HC suggests AD hasn't been able to get into a rhythm
By: Doug Orth | Thu Oct 10, 7:55 pm

Washington Redskins
Bill Callahan says Adrian Peterson hasn’t gotten enough into a rhythm so far this year. Sounds like that’s going to change Sunday. (NBC Sports Washington)

FFToday's Take: Oh boy. A healthy scratch in Week 1, Peterson can probably be expected to handle a vintage workload under Callahan - at least in Week 6 versus the Dolphins. If he blows up, owners would be wise to turn right around and sell him for whatever they can get as quickly as possible (next three games against the 49ers, Vikings and Bills. Callahan has made it clear he intends to get the run game going, so perhaps AD will get enough volume the rest of the way to be a passable flex after this week.
