2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

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 ...

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said after Sunday's loss to the Broncos that he expects Peterson (ankle) to be okay, Darren Urban of the team's official website reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Peterson's rough start to the season took another turn for the worse, as he was forced out of Sunday's blowout loss in the second half. Prior to the injury, he struggled against Denver wideouts Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, who combined for 327 receiving yards on 15 catches. Should Peterson miss time beyond Week 5, it would leave more playing time for Justin Bethel and Jerraud Powers, the latter of whom has been working as the nickel corner. The Cardinals might also need more snaps out of safety Tyrann Mathieu, who has thus far worked in a part-time role.
Peterson suffered a left ankle injury during Sunday's game and is considered questionable to return.

Peterson won't appear on offense nor in the return game during the upcoming campaign, the Cardinals' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Thus, Peterson will be able to focus solely on his assignments as a cornerback, which is a scary proposition after a stellar first three seasons earned him a five-year extension Tuesday. Once the deal kicks in in 2016, he'll be considered the NFL's highest-paid corner, with an average potential salary of $14 million per year. The addition of Antonio Cromartie in the offseason may allow Peterson to work away from an opponent's best receiver on occasion in 2014, but the LSU product will normally shadow the Calvin Johnsons and Demaryius Thomases of the league.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
