Rams' Marcus Peters: Has option picked up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams picked up Peters' fifth-year option Tuesday, keeping him under contract through 2019.

This was fully expected ever since the team agreed to trade for Peters in late February. He has 21 career interceptions, which is the most of any NFL player since the young defensive back entered the league as a first-round pick in 2015. Peters is expected to line up as a starting corner alongside Aqib Talib as part of a revamped Los Angeles secondary.

Chiefs' Marcus Peters: Traded to Rams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs agreed to trade Peters to the Rams on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The deal won't officially go through until March 14, while the Chiefs are expected to receive a package of draft picks in return. It's a surprising move for a Kansas City team that could've kept Peters around for two more years on his current rookie deal, especially when considering the 2015 first-rounder has seven more interceptions than any other player in the league since 2015, including the playoffs. For comparison, only Hall-of-Fame safety Ed Reed had more interceptions (22) in his first three seasons than Peters' 21. The newly-signed David Amerson and newly-acquired Kyle Fuller will likely take over as the Chiefs' top cornerbacks in advance of the 2018 season, though it's possible Kansas City could add another talent to the mix.

Chiefs' Marcus Peters: Finishes 2017 on strong note
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters made four tackles (all solo) and intercepted a pass during Saturday's wild-card matchup with the Titans. He finished the 2017 regular season having racked up five interceptions, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and 46 tackles (42 solo).

It's unsurprising that Peters' regular-season numbers dipped slightly this season with teams continuing to look the opposite direction. Still, the ball-hawking corner has picked off a total of 19 passes in his first three seasons in the league, and his 2017 campaign was shortened two games, one by suspension and one for rest in Week 17. He remains on his rookie deal with the Chiefs through next season and has a club option north of $9 million available in 2019, but it wouldn't be surprising if Kansas City extends the star cornerback before then.

Chiefs' Marcus Peters: Will rest Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters is inactive for Sunday's game against the Broncos in order to rest, BJ Kissel of the Chiefs' official site reports.

Peters has been a lock down corner for the Chiefs all season, so the added rest will help ensure he's at full strength for the divisional playoff matchup. Terrance Mitchell will likely see an increase in defensive snaps Sunday.

Chiefs' Marcus Peters: Forces and recovers fumble Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peters posted two solo tackles, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery Sunday against the Broncos.

Peters played all 57 defensive snaps Sunday, but it was the fifth time this season he notched just two tackles. However, adding the extracurricular stats certainly helped his fantasy value. Peters now has five interceptions and four forced fumbles this campaign, and with a Broncos team that has turned the ball over 31 times in 15 games, he could be in line for another solid outing.
