Vikings | Adrian Peterson appeals suspension

Thu, 20 Nov 2014 08:35:42 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has officially appealed his suspension, according to a source. The NFL Players Association is looking for a neutral arbitrator to hear the case, but commissioner Roger Goodell will make the decision on who hears the case.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson's status for the 2014 season is still up in the air, because there is a small chance that he returns to the field this season. Owners in deeper leagues can keep Peterson on their bench if they have the roster spot but can also cut him if they need a player at another position.
