Bold Prediction of the Week: A big (receiving) day from Adrian Peterson

Bold prediction of the week: Adrian Peterson sets season high in targets and receptions Peterson is on pace for the most receptions he has had in a season since 2015.

With D’Andre Swift out on Sunday, Peterson and Kerryon Johnson will split the backfield.

Stafford will be missing his best deep threat in Kenny Golladay for the third straight week, meaning the Lions will be counting on Marvin Hall and Marvin Jones Jr. to stretch the field—whenever that has been the case thus far this season, it has been pretty hit or miss.

While that usually means a shorter pass to Danny Amendola or T.J. Hockenson , Amendola is out and Hockenson is the clear number one receiver in the offense Sunday and thus will likely garner a lot of attention from the defense.

Don’t be surprised if that means routes in the flat or behind the line of scrimmage early and often Peterson.

Kerryon may get involved too, but with no D’Andre Swift in the picture, it’s shaping up to be a busy day for both of them Sunday.
