Adrian Peterson, RB, Washington Redskins
Peterson only had 36 yards on 15 carries against the New York Giants on Sunday, but he scored for the fourth straight game and added two catches for 19 yards.
It’s not a great matchup for Peterson in Week 17, as the Dallas Cowboys entered Week 17 in the top half of the league against running backs. But the Cowboys have been such an enigma this season, they may simply not fully show up at home against Washington next Sunday.
If nothing else, Peterson has become a good bet to score and get plenty of carries/touches apart from his raw yardage production. For Week 17, that’s enough to make him a must-add as a RB2 or flex.
