Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said the team is in wait-and-see mode on RBs Adrian Peterson (foot) and Toby Gerhart (hamstring) for Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles, and the team isn't optimistic that either back will be able to play. "No, not at this stage. We're getting Matt Asiata ready to roll," Musgrave said.
Fantasy Tip: It's not looking good for AD or Gerhart. The final determination will come down to if either can practice Friday. If you own one or both, Asiata is not an option to start if you want to advance in the fantasy playoffs. Look elsewhere if neither runner plays this weekend.
Wed, 11 Dec 2013 10:29:42 -0800
Minnesota Vikings RBs Adrian Peterson (foot) and Toby Gerhart (hamstring) will not practice Wednesday, Dec. 11, but the team hopes they can return by Friday, Dec. 13. If neither running back can play in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles, they'll be forced to start RB Matt Asiata. RB Jerome Felton would be another option in the backfield.
Wed, 11 Dec 2013 10:21:58 -0800
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (foot) is out of his walking boot and will attempt to practice Friday, Dec. 13. However, the team is more optimistic that RB Toby Gerhart (hamstring) will be able to play in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles than Peterson. Peterson will have to practice Friday in order to play Sunday.
Fantasy Tip: Be fully prepared to bench AD this weekend. If he plays, there's a good chance he'll be limited in some fashion. To be safe during the fantasy semis, you'll probably want to go in another direction.

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said the team is more optimistic about RB Toby Gerhart (hamstring) being able to play Week 15 than they are about RB Adrian Peterson (foot) but that Peterson is a fast healer and is determined to play. Neither is expected to practice Wednesday, Dec. 11, but the team is hoping they will be able to practice by Friday, Dec. 13.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to monitor the practice participation of both players to get a better idea on who will be able to play. Peterson should be in starting lineups if he is able to play. Gerhart should be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option if Peterson misses the game.
Mon, 09 Dec 2013 11:42:02 -0800
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (foot) said an MRI exam on his sprained foot has shown no ligament tears, and he also ruled out a Lisfranc injury. Peterson will undergo a CT scan but expects to play in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Fantasy Tip: The fact remains that AD is dealing with a sprained foot, which will be tough to come back from for Week 15. Even if he winds up playing against the Eagles, he'll likely be limited. Toby Gerhart should be added everywhere as insurance or in the event that Peterson is out this weekend.
Mon, 09 Dec 2013 10:40:41 -0800
Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said RB Toby Gerhart (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury during the team's Week 14 game.
Fantasy Tip: Owners should monitor his practice participation to see if he will be able to play Week 15. He could start if he does play because of the injury to Adrian Peterson (foot).
Sun, 08 Dec 2013 14:34:33 -0800
Minnesota Vikings RB Toby Gerhart carried 15 times for 89 yards and a 41-yard touchdown in the Week 14 game against the Baltimore Ravens, coming on for an injured RB Adrian Peterson (ankle).
Fantasy Tip: Gerhart was highly touted out of Stanford, but he has been in the shadow of Peterson for his entire career. If Peterson is forced to miss time, Gerhart could be a sneaky fantasy player in the coming weeks. But there is no indication that Peterson's injury will keep him out.
Mon, 29 Apr 2013 11:58:34 -0700
The Minnesota Vikings likely will be willing to listen to trade offer for RB Toby Gerhart once training camp begins.
Sun, 27 Jan 2013 18:12:04 -0800
Minnesota Vikings RB Toby Gerhart was expected to split time with RB Adrian Peterson early on, but he ended up in the same backup role he's always been. Gerhart is entering a contract year, and he has minimal mileage on his body. He figures to return as Peterson's primary backup unless the team can find value in the trade market.
