|Vikings | Mike Zimmer talks Adrian Peterson|
Fri, 22 May 2015 06:42:15 -0700
Updating an ongoing story, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson remains in pursuit of being traded or receiving a new contract and remains away from the organization during voluntary workouts. Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer told ESPN Radio he has a target date in mind of when he thinks Peterson will return to the team, but Zimmer did not give the specific date.
Fantasy Tip: Peterson remains among the elite fantasy football options in Round 1, and an upset Peterson could be a very productive one. Zimmer is likely referring to training camp, since Peterson will be fined if he doesn't show, but this situation will feel tenuous until AD steps foot onto the field in Week 1 wearing a Vikings jersey.

|Vikings | Adrian Peterson's agent seeks new deal|
Fri, 01 May 2015 08:34:30 -0700
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson may be changing course in his pursuit of a trade as his agent, Ben Dogra, said he'd like the team to sign Peterson to an extension. "One of the things that I appreciate with the Vikings is their resolve to say 'we're not trading him,'" Dogra told USA TODAY Sports. "That tells me they value him not only as a football player, but what he's done for the organization. "I actually, as an agent, not only appreciate it - I accept it. But actions speak louder than words. If that's going to happen, and you want to keep him, then show him a commitment to make him retire as a Viking. And I haven't had that solution." Peterson has three years and $46 million left on his contract, but none of it is guaranteed.
Fantasy Tip: Peterson is still a high-end RB1. He'll likely be a first-round pick wherever he plays next season.

|Vikings | No change to Adrian Peterson's status|
Thu, 30 Apr 2015 11:06:15 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Peterson will continue to be mentioned in trade talks until the start of the season, but it looks like nothing is imminent. Peterson should be a first round pick in most leagues next season no matter which uniform he is wearing.

|Vikings | Adrian Peterson likely to stay in purple|
Tue, 28 Apr 2015 05:50:45 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Peterson, even if he remains in Minnesota, should be the team's main back yet again, and he'll likely be in consideration for the top overall fantasy pick in 2015 after sitting out almost the entire 2014 season. He's rested and determined to return as one of the elite rushers in the NFL.

|Falcons | Not pursuing Adrian Peterson|
Sat, 25 Apr 2015 00:01:57 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It could be a smoke screen, but Dimitroff said he is watching players in this year's draft and not looking at potential free agents. As with other teams, it is worth seeing if Peterson ends up anywhere or stays in Minnesota. He's still one of the elite running backs.

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 15:22:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Trade talks for Peterson could escalate as the NFL Draft nears, but it still seems that he could also very well stay in Minnesota. Wherever he lands, Peterson is a No. 1 fantasy running back candidate as long as he stays on the field.

|Cowboys | Dallas not pursuing Adrian Peterson?|
Thu, 23 Apr 2015 14:18:59 -0700
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson may not be in the Dallas Cowboys' plans after all, according to Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports. Robinson said the Cowboys have not spoken to the Vikings regarding Peterson.
Fantasy Tip: It's sounding more plausibly that the Vikings will simply end up holding on to Peterson, though trade talks could heat up leading up to the NFL Draft. As long as Peterson is on the field, he's in the running to be the top fantasy running back for the 2015 season.

|Vikings | MIN wants to keep Adrian Peterson|
Wed, 22 Apr 2015 11:13:34 -0700
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is not expected to be traded by the Vikings unless the team is overwhelmed by an offer from another team, according to a source. The Vikings are confident that time will help their relationship with Peterson. A source said a recent report that stated the Vikings are looking for a first-round pick and a starting cornerback in a trade for Peterson is not accurate, which may suggest the Vikings would be looking for even more in a trade.
Fantasy Tip: There will still be rumors about a possible Peterson trade during the offseason, but it looks like he will start the season with the Vikings at this point. Peterson likely will be a first-round pick in most fantasy drafts next season no matter where he plays.

|Jaguars | JAX not interested in Adrian Peterson|
Tue, 21 Apr 2015 21:53:19 -0700
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson might have a new home in 2015, but Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said the team hasn't talked to Peterson despite a report the Jags were one of six teams interested in trading for him. "No, not really," Bradley said Tuesday, April 21. "Not between (general manager Dave Caldwell). A while ago, but it was just conversation, not any direction that we would go."
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners are likely hoping Peterson won't go to Jacksonville, either, as they're not exactly the most dynamic and flashy offense.

|Vikings | Six teams in mix for Adrian Peterson|
Tue, 21 Apr 2015 10:44:16 -0700
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson remains a candidate to be traded, and a source close to the situation believes that if he isn't traded before or during the 2015 NFL Draft next week, that he will remain in Minnesota. The Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars, San Diego Chargers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in the mix for Peterson, and the source didn't include the Oakland Raiders, who had been mentioned in previous reports as a possible candidate. Peterson is under contract for three years and $43.25 million, but none of the money is guaranteed. The Vikes may be hard-pressed to receive a late first-round pick for Peterson, because of his age (30).
Fantasy Tip: A lot can still go down for Peterson and the Vikings before or during the draft, so stay tuned. The reality is that Peterson will likely be in consideration for the top overall fantasy selection this year, regardless of which team he lands with, or even if he remains in Minnesota.
