RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Peterson is aiming to rebound from a subpar season, for his standards, with the new-found knowledge that he's diabetic incorporated into his daily routine. Looking sluggish at times, his first month-plus was characterized by defensive holds and pass interference calls, yet he still corralled 50 tackles (43 solo), seven passes defended, three interceptions, one defensive touchdown, and one sack on the year. Because he has no absences in his first four campaigns, expect him to remain near the top of the IDP heap.

2014

Peterson doesn't rack up tackle totals on a yearly basis, but does get a fair amount of turnovers. He couldn't equal his seven interceptions from 2012, recording only three in 2013, but the speedster is still a threat to record high totals in the category. With no assignments to worry about other than on the defensive side of the ball, Peterson's production should line up with his status as the league's highest-paid cornerback, especially due to the presence of Antonio Cromartie opposite him.

2013

Peterson will see opponents' top wideouts as he is the Cardinals' top corner. He may see less time on special teams due to rookie and fellow college teammate Tyrann Mathieu.

2012

Peterson badly struggled in coverage as a rookie and failed to make plays on the ball (two interceptions), but he added a solid total of 64 tackles (59 solo), one sack and 13 passes defended. As anyone remotely familiar with the LSU product knows, though, Peterson's value is inflated by his punt return skills. He returned four punts for touchdowns as a rookie. He should be good for at least one or two more touchdowns this season and could get better as a defender.
