Adrian Peterson's Fantasy Scouting Report

REST OF SEASON OUTLOOK AND POSITION RANK

You can expect Adrian Peterson to be a good bench player who will start in certain weeks the rest of the season. His 60 projected fantasy points puts him at #38 behind Zack Moss and ahead of Jerick McKinnon. He has averaged 8.37 fantasy points in his past 37 games, which is more than our projected per game average. His projected per game average is 6.7 fantasy points. His rank based on avg proj (#41) is worse than his rank based on total fantasy points. He is less valuable in PPR leagues where he is the #46 ranked running back. He is underrated if you compare his ownership based rank with his projection rank. At 66%, he is the #47 most highly owned running back. Adrian Peterson is expected to come up short of this season-to-date's #26 fantasy position rank.
