Cardinals' Adrian Peterson: Vintage effort in Week 6 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson rushed 26 times for 134 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 38-33 win over the Buccaneers while also fumbling once.

Peterson provided the Bucs with a glimpse of the turn-back-the-clock performance he would deliver when he ripped off a 27-yard touchdown run to cap a six-play, 75-yard opening possession. He eventually went in from one yard out midway through the fourth quarter as well, a score that would end up giving the Cardinals just enough cushion to withstand Tampa's furious comeback. While he was also stymied on multiple carries and no longer sports the elite-level ability of his heyday, Peterson's effort certainly served notice that he has more left in the tank than what he had a chance to show in his brief Saints stint. He'll look to prove that his Week 6 breakout was no outlier when he faces a vulnerable Rams rush defense in Week 7.

Cardinals' Adrian Peterson: Traded to Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Saints traded Peterson to the Cardinals on Tuesday for a conditional 2018 sixth-round draft choice, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.

Peterson was always an odd fit with the Saints and didn't prove to be an ideal complement to the team's top two backs, Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara, during his four games with the team. He'll finish his tenure with New Orleans with a meager 81 yards on 27 carries (3.0 average), but he should have a better shot at finding consistent snaps with Arizona, who moved superstar David Johnson (wrist) to injured reserve after Week 1. Johnson appears to be targeting a December return, but until he's back in the mix, Peterson should challenge Chris Johnson for the lead role in the team's rushing attack. It's unclear how much involvement Peterson will see in Week 6 during the Cardinals' game against the Buccaneers with limited time to familiarize himself with the new playbook.

Saints' Adrian Peterson: Still has confidence of coaches
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Saints running backs coach Joel Thomas believes it's only a matter of time before Peterson makes an impact, Herbie Teope of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Heading into a Week 5 bye, Peterson has been vastly overshadowed by both Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara, managing just 27 carries for 81 yards and two catches for four yards. Kamara and Ingram have combined for 131 scrimmage yards per game, with the former coming off a huge Week 4 in which he piled up 10 receptions, 96 total yards and his second touchdown of the year. Given his role as the team's second choice for early-down carries, Peterson faces a difficult path to fantasy relevance so long as Ingram stays healthy. It does at least seem that the Saints want to keep the 32-year-old involved in some capacity.

Saints' Adrian Peterson: Six snaps in Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson gained four yards on four carries in Sunday's win against the Dolphins.

The cameras at Wembley Stadium in London were often trained on Peterson, who spent most of the game standing stoically on the sideline. In fact, the former Viking played only six of the Saints' 74 offensive snaps, with Mark Ingram and rookie Alvin Kamara seeing the majority of the playing time. At this point, it's become clear that Peterson is third in the running back pecking order, and while head coach Sean Payton's backfield usage has been historically unpredictable, it will likely take an Ingram injury for fantasy owners to feel comfortable starting Peterson in the vast majority of leagues.

Saints' Adrian Peterson: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (rest) returned to practice Friday, the Times-Picayune reports.

Peterson sat out of Thursday's practice to rest his ailing knee, and the 32-year-old is likely in store for more rest days over the course of this season in order to maintain his health. He's only been on the field for 39 snaps over New Orleans' first three games, and it appears he'll continue to be in a time share with Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara in Week 4 against the Dolphins, which is taking place in London.
