Vikings | Adrian Peterson had significant tear

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 07:48:03 -0800

Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) said he tore 90 percent of the meniscus in his right knee earlier in the season. He returned in 12 weeks after a full repair.

Fantasy Tip: His future with the team, and his RB1 status in fantasy, is up in the air. He'll be 32 next season and didn't look good before the knee injury; albeit his offensive line had something to do with that. He presents a lot of risk as a low-end RB1, and it makes more sense to take him as a second back in hopes of one more big rushing season.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson wants to stay in Minnesota

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 10:02:18 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has told reporters he would like to stay with the team, although he declined to say whether or not he would accept a pay cut. He went on to say there are certain players, such as Tom Brady and Antonio Brown, in whom franchises should invest in more than others.

Fantasy Tip: This doesn't sound like a player willing to accept a pay cut. Given his age (32 in March) and the fact he is due $11.75 million in the final year of his contract next season, he is highly unlikely to return with that attitude. AP won't be out of work for long, but his days as an elite RB1 could very well be coming to an end, assuming they haven't already.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson wants to stay

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 08:28:28 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he wants to stay with the Vikings in 2017, but he declined to say whether he would accept a pay cut.

Fantasy Tip: AD will be 32 in March, and it's probably 50-50, at best, that he stays in Minnesota. It'll be really hard to count on him as an RB1 next season with nearly 2,500 carries on his body, but the perfect situation could still give him that chance.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson ruled out

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 16:26:22 -0800

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (groin, knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 30, and has been ruled out for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata will continue to share work at running back with Peterson sidelined. McKinnon probably has more value and can be a flex option in most leagues, while Asiata has some value in deeper leagues because of his touchdown potential.

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 10:09:08 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee, groin) did not participate in practice Friday, Dec. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson hasn't practiced all week and appears likely to sit out the finale, leaving Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon to share touches in the backfield once against the Chicago Bears. Both are low-end flex options at best.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson does not practice

Wed, 28 Dec 2016 11:44:22 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (groin, knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson was not able to play in Week 16 and may have to miss another game because of his injuries. Owners can check on his status later in the week but probably should look for other options to use. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata would share work if Peterson is ruled out and could both be flex option in leagues.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson's season over?

Fri, 23 Dec 2016 20:14:40 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (groin, knee) has already been ruled out for Week 16, and he is unlikely to play in the season finale, according to a team source.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson's future is cloudy. He has been able to bounce back from injuries in the past, but father time eventually wins. Fantasy owners will have to wait and see what the offseason brings before they can have an idea of Peterson's value.
