Adrian Peterson trade moves Alvin Kamara, Mark Ingram up the charts

Adrian Peterson remains a big name, but none of our trio of Fantasy experts expects much from him in Arizona Wildcats - none have him inside of the top-48 even after his trade to the Arizona Cardinals Tuesday.

"Adrian and I talk a ton each week". ESPN reported the Saints compensation in the deal is a conditional 2018 sixth-round draft.

It didn't work out that way thanks to Kamara's versatility and head coach Sean Payton's affinity for the rookie. And our relationship, I would say, has been fantastic.

A move New Orleans made after the Saints signed Peterson ended up finalizing the move. This is a awful hype video that blasts some loud music while Peterson slowly walks onto an empty Cardinals practice field.

Despite All Day carrying just 27 times for 81 yards through four games and spending the majority of his time on the sideline, Payton said he still believes Peterson can be a productive runner. "I look to play four or five more years", Peterson said, via Darren Urban of the team's website.

Arizona could use a boost in its rushing attack, which ranks last in the National Football League in yards per game (51.8). "As I said earlier, if you don't get the pads on him and you don't get multiple sets and take good angles, he's going to break tackles". Four games into the season, Ingram had played 52.5 percent of the snaps, up from the 46 percent he played a year ago.

Peterson is about to get the playing time he craves, and New Orleans now has a backfield picture that is far more clear than it was a couple of days ago. "I mean, he's a great player, he still has a lot of juice left in the tank".
