Adrian Peterson's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

According to our projection, you can expect Adrian Peterson to be a bench player or a good option off the waiver wire. His 48 projected fantasy points puts him at #54 behind Raheem Mostert and ahead of Alexander Mattison. He has averaged 9.36 fantasy points in his past 22 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 5.3 fantasy points. His rank based on average projected points is the same as his rank based on total fantasy points. He is less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #57 ranked running back. He is overrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 79%, he is the #40 most highly owned running back. Adrian Peterson is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #40 fantasy position rank.
