Redskins' Adrian Peterson: Wants to stay with Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson said he wants to stay with Washington for 2019, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports. "Hopefully I'm back here. I want to be a part of what I see we could be as a team and as an organization. I definitely want to be a part of it," Peterson said Sunday. "That's what I'm going to continue to keep my mind on."

Signed after Derrius Guice suffered a torn ACL during the preseason, Peterson became a 16-game starter for the first time since 2015, taking 251 carries for 1,042 yards (4.2 YPC) and seven touchdowns while catching 20 of 26 targets for 208 yards and another score. His lack of playing time in passing situations unsurprisingly left him with inconsistent production, averaging 21.4 carries for 97 yards with five touchdowns in seven wins, compared to 11.2 carries for 40 yards with three scores in nine losses. Washington obviously would like to see Guice get healthy and claim the lead role in 2019, but his recovery may take longer than initially expected after an infection in his knee required a seven-week course of intravenous antibiotics. Peterson will turn 34 in March and shouldn't have too much trouble finding a chance to compete for carries even if the Redskins don't bring him back.

Redskins' Adrian Peterson: Comeback season ends with whimper
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson netted zero yards on four rushes in the Redskins' 24-0 loss to the Eagles on Sunday.

Peterson's forgettable outing Sunday shouldn't detract from what was a remarkable comeback campaign, one in which the multi-time Pro Bowler amassed 1,046 yards and seven touchdowns on the ground, supplementing those numbers with a 20-208-1 line through the air. His success this season notwithstanding, it remains to be seen whether there's another clear-cut lead-back job the likes of which he found in Washington for Peterson in 2019. The 11-year veteran will be 34 in March, but at minimum, he certainly proved his ability to at least serve in a complementary capacity with his play this past season.

Redskins' Adrian Peterson: Elevates to full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (shoulder) was listed as a full participant at Thursday's practice.

More often than not, Peterson has rid himself of a designation by week's end since dislocating his shoulder Week 5 in New Orleans. He did just that on his second opportunity to do so during preparations for the season finale. In his previous matchup Week 13 with the Eagles, he ripped off a 90-yard touchdown run but otherwise managed just one yard per carry on his other eight rushes.

Redskins' Adrian Peterson: Limited by shoulder, per usual
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson (shoulder) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Les Carpenter of The Washington Post reports.

Peterson notched 1,000 rushing yards this season for the first time since 2015 and eighth time in 12 pro campaigns, pushing him to eighth all-time for career yards on the ground with 13,318. Still, he continues to carry a shoulder injury that regularly impacts his practice reps. As he does most weeks, expect him to ditch the designation by week's end in preparation for an Eagles defense that allowed him to run for a career-best 90-yard touchdown dash Week 13.

Redskins' Adrian Peterson: Reaches 1,000 yards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peterson toted the rock 26 times for 119 yards in Saturday's 25-16 loss to the Titans. He caught one of two targets for eight yards.

Peterson's third 100-yard game of the season pushed him over 1,000 rushing yards for the first time since 2015. The 33-year-old appeared to be losing gas over the last two weeks (29 rushes for 67 yards), but his big day on the ground proved that his renaissance year is not over yet. Peterson will look to put a bow on his strong Comeback Player of the Year bid in a matchup against the Eagles' 11th-ranked rush defense in Week 17.
