2018 Fantasy Outlook
A surprise trade to the Rams this offseason was one of many moves that brought a marquee defensive talent to Los Angeles, and Peters now finds himself as a leader in one of the league's most imposing defenses. No player of any position has more interceptions (19) or pass breakups (55) than he has since Peters entered the league in 2015, and there's no reason to think the Washington product can't keep racking up the stats in his new locale while playing opposite the talented Aqib Talib. Along with Peters, Talib's offseason arrival gives the Rams both of the two 2016 first-team All-Pro selections at cornerback. With Lamarcus Joyner providing help at free safety, the Los Angeles secondary will be a problem for many offenses in 2018, and Peters' production could be one of the biggest beneficiaries. It only helps that Rams' world-class defensive line will be giving opposing quarterbacks little time to throw. Read Past Outlooks

$Signed a four-year, $9.58 million contract with the Chiefs in May of 2015. Traded to the Rams in March of 2018. Rams exercised $9.07 million team option for 2019 in April of 2018.
Facing fifth-year option

February 12, 2019
Peters is scheduled to play 2019 under the fifth-year option on his rookie contract, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Peters fell shy of expectations in his first season with the Rams, enduring an ugly stretch of play from late September through early November. His struggles may have been related to a Week 3 calf injury, and he did play much better toward the end of the regular season and into the playoffs. With so many other star players warranting large contracts, it isn't clear if the Rams will try to sign the 26-year-old cornerback to a long-term deal. Their starting corner on the other side, Aqib Talib, is also scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2019 campaign.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
The ball-hawking corner seemed destined for some drop-off a year after taking the league by storm as a rookie, but he certainly didn't go through a sophomore slump. Teams surely began looking the other way more frequently, but that didn't stop Peters from racking up another six interceptions in 2017. He added a forced fumble, three fumble recoveries and 45 tackles (35 solo) to his IDP ledger last season, keeping him on the fantasy radar in leagues that incorporate individual defensive statistics. There's no reason to believe there will be a big dip in production this year as he attempts to solidify his status as one of the NFL's elite corners.
Peters posted a monstrous 2015 campaign, displaying ball skills (eight interceptions, two for touchdowns) and a willingness to assist in the running game (60 tackles). Given the Chiefs’ lack of depth at his position, it wouldn’t be surprising if the second-year cornerback sees fewer passes thrown his direction in 2016.
Peters was selected by the Chiefs in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft. His attitude has much more question to it than his skills, and he'll enter training camp looking to unseat Phillip Gaines for a starting spot alongside Sean Smith in 2015.
