Adrian Peterson rushed 20 times for 75 yards and two touchdowns in Minnesota's 34-27 Week 10 win over the Redskins.

He added two catches for two yards. AD had some negative plays against a defense that was focused on taking him away, but more than made up with it with a bevy of unbelievably tough between-the-tackles rushes. The highlight was his 18-yard score in the first quarter, where he fit himself through a minuscule hole before getting to the edge and shedding all would-be tacklers. Through nine games, AD is now averaging 87.3 rushing yards per game, and has 10 total scores. AD is still being taken off the field on far too many critical third downs, but he's earning his money as fantasy's No. 1 overall pick.

The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are expected to "at least seriously consider" making free agent Arian Foster a contract offer if he shows well at Monday's tryout.

Beat writer Barry Jackson does allow "it's hardly assured that they would." The Dolphins should know that Foster's free agent market isn't exactly hot, and they may start out with a minimum salary offer including some incentives. If Foster's Lions tryout is to go down, he could conceivably try to create a small bidding war between the two teams. Foster tore his Achilles' tendon last Week 7 and is nine months removed from the injury. He turns 30 in August.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent Arian Foster will work out for the Dolphins on Monday, followed by the Lions "later this week."

Miami has long been the quiet frontrunner to sign Foster. He visited the team in March, and the Miami Herald reported in May the Fins were "continuing to monitor" him. The Lions have not been linked to Foster to this point and may be being used as leverage by Foster's agent. Foster is coming off a torn Achilles' tendon while going on age 30. What he has left in the tank is entirely unclear, but his Average Draft Position is certain to jump multiple rounds whenever he signs a contract. The Dolphins look to be in the driver's seat to land him.

The Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett writes "there's no reason" Ameer Abdullah "can't break 1,000 yards rushing" this season.

Beat writers are rarely good numbers forecasters, but we pass these things along nonetheless. Abdullah managed 597 rushing yards as a rookie. Birkett also foresees an "uptick" in Abdullah's receiving usage after a 25-catch first season. Birkett predicts Abdullah will play a "bigger role in the offense," citing Calvin Johnson's retirement and the Lions' "desire to run more." Birkett goes as far as to already crown Abdullah the eighth best player on the Lions' 90-man roster.

The New Orleans Advocate confirms Tim Hightower "seems like the best bet" to open the season as Mark Ingram's primary backup.

Signed off the street just one month before Ingram's year-ending shoulder injury last season, Hightower emerged as the Saints' every-down back and was a hero in the fantasy playoffs. The Advocate's Nick Underhill says C.J. Spiller "needs to prove he can still be productive" after a lost first season in New Orleans. Underhill even suggests Spiller's roster spot may not be assured. Ingram owners searching for a handcuff should look in Hightower's direction.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports the Redskins' best long-term offer to Kirk Cousins before Friday was worth $16 million per year.

Friday was the deadline for teams to sign franchise players long term. GM Scot McCloughan wasn't willing to exceed $16 million annually and was offering only $24 million guaranteed. Letting Cousins play out this season on his $19.953 million tag could be best for both parties. The Redskins will get another full year to evaluate him and Cousins will have another season of tape with one of the NFL's top pass-catcher corps, which he could conceivably parlay into a monster deal with Washington or someone else in 2017.

The Florida Times Union's Ryan O'Halloran "fully expects" Rashad Greene to be the Jaguars' No. 3 receiver this year.

"If the [Jaguars] get anything out of [Marqise] Lee, it will be a bonus," O'Halloran said on Mike Clay's Sirius XM Fantasy show. Whereas Greene is entrenched in the slot, Lee is the top backup for perimeter receivers Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns. The Jags may not go three wide especially often as a two-tight end team that will employ Julius Thomas and Marcedes Lewis together more frequently. Greene is low-ceiling stash in PPR Dynasty leagues.

Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times Union suggests carries could be split about 55/45 in the Jaguars' backfield this season.

55 percent would go to Chris Ivory with T.J. Yeldon responsible for the other 45 percent. O'Halloran suggested the Jags could even use a "hot-hand" approach with one back getting more carries in the second half based on their performance in the first two quarters. The Jags' backfield is going to be a tough puzzle for fantasy owners to solve. Ivory is the projected starter and goal-line back, making him the lesser of two evils. Neither is worthy of more than a middle-round stab in 12-team fantasy drafts.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said if the season started today, Carson Wentz would be a healthy inactive.

Most teams dress only two quarterbacks on game day and Wentz appears to be a distant third behind Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel. Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice believes the best-case scenario is for Bradford to have a strong season so the Eagles could flip him for an early-round pick in 2017. That would pave the way for Wentz to see the field. We are still not ruling out Wentz making starts late this season, specifically if/when the Eagles fall out of the playoff hunt.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Charean Williams reports the Cowboys have yet to make a decision on suspended MLB Rolando McClain's future.

Some in the organization were already annoyed with McClain for skipping voluntary workouts this spring, and then he was slapped with a 10-game suspension for violating the substance abuse policy. Williams reports "many in the organization" want him released, but he still has the backing of owner Jerry Jones. Releasing McClain could also affect the Cowboys' ability to recoup some or all of the signing bonus he was paid in March. It sounds like Jones is happy to keep McClain on the roster, but others in the organization could change his mind.

ESPN Chicago's Jeff Dickerson questions whether the Bears view Alshon Jeffery as "a true No. 1 receiver."

"Chicago’s approach in negotiations suggests they view Jeffery more as a "1A" or elite No. 2 wideout," Dickerson continued. The Bears certainly were not willing to give Jeffery elite money this summer, but it was assumed his injury history was the main concern. Perhaps the Bears also question his ability, but his 5.6/82/.5 per-game average over the last three seasons would seem to fly in the face of those concerns. If Jeffery stays healthy this season, he is going to get paid No. 1 money by someone next spring. He is still only 26 years old.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini suggests the Muhammad Wilkerson deal could improve the chances the Jets re-sign free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick.

The Jets had only $3.4 in cap room before signing Wilkerson. Because that deal will lower his $15.7 million cap number by what Cimini anticipates as "a few million," it could free up more money to keep Fitzpatrick on a one-year deal. "The Jets haven't been keen on the idea of a one-year deal; perhaps this changes things," Cimini wrote. Locking up Wilkerson long term, then re-signing the Jets' starting quarterback would represent a big July for GM Mike Maccagnan.
