The Adrian Peterson experiment with the New Orleans Saints reportedly came to an abrupt end Tuesday when the Saints traded him to the Arizona Cardinals, per ESPN’s Dianna Russini.

Fantasy owners, especially those with Alvin Kamara on the roster, should be thrilled Peterson is no longer in New Orleans.

Mark Ingram has been the Saints’ No. 1 running back even with Peterson on the roster. Ingram leads the team with 170 rushing yards and 42 carries. The former Alabama star had a season-high 18 touches in his last game against the Miami Dolphins in Week 4.

Kamara is the direct beneficiary of Peterson’s departure. The rookie out of Tennessee will be used to spell Ingram’s carries, but he’s already a receiving threat out of the backfield with 20 receptions, including 10 catches on 10 targets against the Dolphins.
