Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he may receive some work during the preseason. "I feel like getting out there and playing a little bit," Peterson said. "It's something that once that time comes around, I'll have a better feel for, like, 'Hey, I need to get out there just to kind of get the legs moving and get the pads (on) a little bit.' I can tell you, though, I'm definitely more itching towards playing a little more in the preseason than I have the past seven, eight years." Peterson has not received a carry in any of the last four preseasons.
Fantasy Tip: Peterson probably would receive only a handful of touches this preseason if he plays because the team wants to make sure he is healthy for the regular season. Adrian Peterson is one of the best running backs in the league and should be in the conversation for the No. 1 overall pick in fantasy drafts.

Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell adds a physicality dimension and the ability to grab jump balls, according to Vikings general manager Rick Spielman.
Fantasy Tip: Treadwell should have a chance to contribute immediately. Teddy Bridgewater is known to be an accurate passer that hasn't had a lot to throw to. Treadwell isn't a burner, but he could be a solid possession receiver. He'll be an option at WR4.

Fantasy Tip: Boehringer is the first ever player selected directly from Europe. If he does make the team, he isn't likely to make a fantasy impact. However, it will be interesting to see if he develops into a solid NFL receiver.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson has a ton of athletic ability, but it hasn't translated onto the field in the Vikings offense. After the Vikes spent a first-round pick on Laquon Treadwell, Patterson is pushed further down the depth chart. Patterson has contributed much more on special teams, and he isn't worth spending a late-round flier on in traditional fantasy drafts.

Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said OG Willie Beavers, who was selected in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL draft, will be tried at guard first, even though he spent most of the 2015 season at Western Michigan as a left tackle. Beavers' first experience playing guard came in the Senior Bowl in January.

Minnesota Vikings OT T.J. Clemmings, who started all 16 games at right tackle last season, will move to left tackle to serve as the backup to OT Matt Kalil, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. Kalil is entering the final year of his contract and the team had a logjam at right tackle due to the free-agent signing of OT Andre Smith and the return of OT Phil Loadholt, who missed the entire 2015 season with a torn Achilles' tendon.
