Adrian Peterson, RB, Detroit Lions
In the depths of the 2020 lairs lies a version of Adrian Peterson that scores fantasy points. Far of from his former MVP self, Peterson has seen his numbers tick up in recent weeks. Scoring touchdowns and getting the carries is not new to Peterson but lately, on the Lions, it is.
PFF said it perfectly above. The year is 2032 and Peterson is still scoring touchdowns. This guy refuses to call it quits, even after a decade of dominance. Peterson in the past few weeks has scored 17+ fantasy points in each.
With Swift being declared “not as himself” it’s left the Lions in the dark on his status and moved Peterson to the limelight.
Peterson in Swift’s absence has seen 15+ carries, 50+ yards, and 2+ touchdowns in his two game absence. I’m all aboard the Peterson train with Swift out. Grab him now for a spot start with Swift out.
