Patrick Peterson: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)After emerging from the concussion protocol Wednesday, Peterson fit in a limited showing in drills, and his upgrade to full practice all but assures his presence in the Cardinals' defensive backfield Sunday at Dallas. Expect Friday's injury report to confirm his Week 9 availability.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Peterson relayed that he lost consciousness for a brief time after Sunday's hit, which came courtesy of a drilling placed upon the Eagles' Jeremy Maclin from Peterson's own teammate, Deone Bucannon. While Peterson may not practice fully by week's end, his Week 9 availability could be confirmed upon the release of Friday's injury report.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
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.
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.
