Adrian Peterson is a first-ballot Hall of Famer and an all-time great running back.


He also hasn't been an elite back since 2015, the last time he averaged more than 4.0 yards per carry and eclipsed 1,000 yards in a single season.


Now with his third team in less than two seasons, Peterson has a chance to start for the Redskins, but the question is, will that be enough to translate to another 1,000-yard season? 

Last season, the Redskins were led by rookie Samaje Perine with just 609 rushing yards on 175 carries. With Perine, Rob Kelley and Chris Thompson all in the mix for carries, it's clearly a reach for any of them to top the 1,000-yard mark this season.

With betting odds available on Peterson topping 1,000 regular-season rushing yards currently sitting at 10/3, this looks like a hard pass. But we've seen players take a dip in the fountain of youth in the past.


Plus, if public opinion is any indication of Peterson's output this year, you should likely expect the under.
