Cardinals | Adrian Peterson released

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 14:11:32 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson was officially released Tuesday, March 13.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson gave the Cardinals some quality games, but he'll turn 33 years old next week and is comfortably over the hill in running back years. He may yet play a complementary role somewhere else, but he is merely a faint blip on the fantasy radar at this point in his storied career.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson says neck is healed

Mon, 12 Mar 2018 22:45:50 -0700

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Cardinals) said the Arizona Cardinals doctor told him that his neck is "completely healed" after reviewing scans and that he is "still looking forward to playing next season."

Fantasy Tip: Peterson's tenure with the Saints at the onset of the 2017 season turned out to be a huge flop, though that was more so because they had Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram carrying the load. When AP arrived in Arizona, he was decent and exhibited flashes of his old self, so perhaps there is still something left in the tank. Of course, that hinges on just where he ends up next.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson to be released

Mon, 12 Mar 2018 05:07:09 -0700

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be released Monday, March 12, according to a source. He is due a $750,000 bonus on the third day of the league year. He could still return to Arizona later.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson's fantasy value is pretty murky right now. If he returns to Arizona, he'd be an RB4 for depth.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson not close to retirement

Sat, 03 Feb 2018 10:21:51 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson will turn 33 years old in March, but he recently told the St. Paul Pioneer Press' Chris Tomasson he wants at least four more years.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson is a physical marvel and was able to carry the Arizona offense on his shoulders on occasion after he was traded from the New Orleans Saints, but any running back wanting to play into his mid-30s is living on borrowed time. Injuries are also a major concern. The Cardinals are expected to release Peterson, meaning he'll need to learn his third offense in about a year if he plays in 2018. While it is never wise to bet against him, Peterson is nearing the end of the line as a useful fantasy option.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson to be released

Wed, 31 Jan 2018 11:31:56 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be released, according to Fox Sports Radio's Mike Jurecki. Peterson's salary cap hit would be $3.5 million for 2018.

Fantasy Tip: With David Johnson returning and Peterson turning 33 years old and injury prone, it makes sense for the Cardinals to part ways with the veteran running back. It's unlikely that Peterson will ever be fantasy relevant again considering his age and injury history.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson's season over

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 19:33:53 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list with a neck injury, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: With Peterson out for the year, Kerwynn Williams should remain a low-end, volume-based RB2 for the remainder of the season.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson remains sidelined

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 10:39:51 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) was not able to practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson may not play again this season, so we'll continue to see heavy doses of Kerwynn Williams with dollops of D.J. Foster mixed in. While Williams has seen a healthy amount of carries the last two games, his production has been more flex-like than that of an RB2.

Cardinals | Adrian Peterson's status unclear

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 13:25:13 -0800

Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) may not play again this season as head coach Bruce Arians said he has "no idea" if Peterson will recover from his neck injury in time.

Fantasy Tip: Arians didn't exactly take a glass-half-full approach with Peterson's status. He didn't even mention Peterson being able to practice soon. In the meantime, Kerwynn Williams and D.J. Foster will continue to man the backfield. Williams is no more than a flex dart.
