Adrian Peterson Fantasy Value Rises After Trade, Jerick McKinnon Comparison

Adrian Peterson Fantasy Value Rises After Trade, Jerick McKinnon Comparison”

BC-FBN-Adrian Peterson-Loan Lawsuit, 129All-Pro running back sued after defaulting on loan(Eds: APNewsNow.)A lawsuit filed in Minneapolis says former Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has defaulted on a $2.4 million loan. It was an opportunity for him to be featured more. Our relationship is fantastic.

"In my discussions yesterday with (Cardinals general manager) Steve Keim, it was like, 'Hey, this guy still has it, and here's what he does well and we've seen it, '" Payton said Wednesday morning. "But unfortunately that's the way the game played out", Peterson said.

"This was done just using common sense, and we had a chance to get a draft pick next year", Payton said.

New Orleans simply couldn't give Peterson the opportunities he needs.

Peterson carried the ball 27 times for a 81 yards in four games with the Saints.

Thought to be rejuvenated in the Saints' high-powered offense, Peterson instead struggled on the field and with his role.

"One of the challenges obviously when you have the depth we had is having enough touches for all these guys, and both Mark and Alvin have been playing well", Payton said.

Peterson has at times seemed unhappy sharing carries with running backs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. Unlike the National Basketball Association, which holds its draft before free agency, the NFL holds the draft after most free agents have been signed, and New Orleans signed Peterson without knowing what they would have in Kamara. The 25-year-old McKinnon, in his 4th season, looked terrific running and receiving last week, gaining 95 yards on 16 carries and 51 yards on five receptions against the Bears. "All of those things are fantasy".
