How can AP be effective with the worst O-line in NFL???? Even the #1 ranked RB only had  23 yrds on 11 carries before his injury. AP is just Chris Johnson 2.0...

 Wish you all the luck with him though

No he'll be at least As good as CJ2K was 2 years ago, I dont own AP but I bet people will be pleased what he does with 15 carries a game and goal line work. It wouldnt shock me if he was a complete beast either, but if I wAs betting on it I'd say he will be a fantasy startsble RB ROS

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said Adrian Peterson will not play on third downs.

It is not a surprise for a player who has struggled to produce in the passing game most of his career, but it does ensure Andre Ellington, who has 18 catches the last two games, will remain involved. A two-down option behind a bad line on an offense which should remain pass-heavy, Peterson may not have a path to even RB2 value.
 
hard to argue with, but the talent is still there so there is a dart throws chance.

All the hipster fantasy analysts are writting him off smugly. I could see him making them all eat their words. 

 

Most of those fantasy writers are millenials. They don't think old people can still be productive in the workforce

Why would BA publically say that AP won't get pass down work unless that is what he wants TB to think?  Count on AP to catch a pass or two, even though AP is expected to know very little of pass play book.  That part is going to take time.

 

Also, to those saying that AP is CJ 2.0, I will say that you've simply confirmed that you don't watch the games.  AP has looked way, way better than CJ in the limited touches AP has received so far.  No RB has looked worse than CJ this season.  

 

AZ had no choice but find someone better, and BA has already confirmed than when they studied the tape, they saw (as everyone else could) that AP was still capable of being a violent runner who can run away, as well as through, a defense.  I won't vouch for AP's vision (I question it), but he can still move well and he still runs with passion.  He's more effective than Marshawn, IMO.

 

He won't turn AZ into a running juggernaut, be if he makes defenses respect play action, he will be doing his job for the Cardinals.

you know i did watch some of his cliips, and he did look pretty good.  However, chris harris, whose opinion i respect as he watches a ton of film, said he looks cooked. i dont know what to think.,

Sean O'Hara of NFL Network, whose views I respect, just commented on TNF pre-game that AP will be great "for the identity of this offense."  I agree.  He'll instantly help the attitude of that O-line and everyone else on the offensive side of the ball.  The morale in AZ has been in the dumps since DJ went out.  AP brings a spark.  It is as good a marriage as you'll see mid-season.  Whatever AP has left, AZ will get it.  After a few weeks (AP needs time to absorb the play book), I am real interested to see the results of this experiment.

I don't think you can take any of his plays at NO that seriously.  It's not like they featured him and an educated guess would say he lost interest.

 

First big knock is his age, right?  He's 32.  But how often does a 30 year old in today's NFL run for 1500/11?  Just two years ago, after years of wear.  He is not human.  His ceiling is probably around mid-RB2.
