6/11:Over the off-season the New Orleans Saints scored seven-time Pro Bowl running back Adrian Peterson. Does the 32-year-old back still have enough left in the tank to help the Saints? After only playing three games last season what can A.P. bring to the table? The 2016 season was a bust for A.P. as he finished with 72 yards and zero touchdowns in three games. Health is beginning to become a problem after Peterson has only played in 20 games over the last three seasons. Fantasy owners must be asking themselves if Peterson is even worth the risk? It's a tough call especially coming off an injury. Peterson came back on fire after missing most of the 2014 season. He put up league leading numbers in 2015, but this is a new team, and a different offense. The Saints are a pass first team, and Peterson won't get the same amount of attempts. Mark Ingram and Peterson will be fighting for touches, and the Saints will still pass a majority of the time. At this point in his career don't even bother taking Peterson the first five rounds. If he's still there after that select him at your own risk, but he's not a No. 1 back, and he's barely a reliable second option. Peterson's health is always a concern, and will be the biggest factor in determining his success in his new home.--Andy Webb - RotoBaller
