2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
I hope you bought a few cold ones for the fantasy owner who drafted Adrian Peterson in your league last year, they deserved it. After just 21 carries, his 2014 season was over, and the immediate future of the one of the league’s best players was in serious doubt. Flash forward to the early summer of 2015, and Peterson is rested, refreshed, and ready to be unleased upon the NFL once again. Uh oh!

Not surprisingly Peterson’s stats fell off in 2013 after his monster 2000-yard campaign in 2012. Although they were slightly off by his standards, a 1200+ yard, 10-touchdown running back is going to be a RB1 in fantasy football, no matter the format. Even after turning 30 this offseason, Peterson’s year away from the game has made him fresher and hungrier than ever. In Norv Turner’s offensive system, Peterson is going to be the focal point of the run game, and could be primed to best his career high single season reception total (43). For reference, Emmitt Smith in his prime had four seasons of 50+ receptions. This Vikings team is loaded on offense, should boast an aggressive young defense, and has talent to challenge for the division title. There is no reason to think that Peterson won’t return to his dominant form, and is a strong consideration at the No.1 overall pick.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Peterson expects to play in Wild Card Round
Missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday with back issue
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jan 7, 8:35 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Vikings RB Adrian Peterson missed a second day of practice on Thursday because of a back injury, but he left no doubt about where expects to be when Sunday’s game against the Seahawks gets underway. Peterson said that the lack of practice has been about rest and not because his back is bothering him enough that there’s a chance he’ll have to remain on the sideline. “I’m good,” Peterson said, via the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “I’m feeling good. I was able to rest the body today. I’ll be ready to roll on Sunday.” (Pro Football Talk)

FFToday's Take: Peterson missed most of the second half in Week 17 versus Green Bay before returning late in the fourth quarter. While he should be expected to play, the wind chill in Minnesota is expected around minus-7 degrees and the overall temperature is expected to be no higher than zero. That means AP could struggle to get loose or stay loose. As a result, Jerick McKinnon makes an interesting contrarian play in DFS, albeit a low upside one against Seattle's stout defense.


Injury Adrian Peterson doesn't practice Wednesday
Dealing with sprained ankle
By: Jake Gordon | Wed Dec 23, 6:12 pm

Minnesota Vikings
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson says he's confident he'll play this weekend against the New York Giants despite a sprained left ankle that forced him out for part of the last game. Peterson didn't practice Wednesday, and was listed on the injury report with a shoulder issue as well, but said he'll be fine Sunday. (USA Today)

FFToday's Take: Playing on a sprained ankle with only a week of treatment would limit most players but Adrian Peterson has proven people wrong his entire career. AP isn't likely to shed his "questionable" tag anytime soon so his owners will want to check back later in the week to be sure he is given the green light to play against the Giants.


Injury Adrian Peterson "ready to go" for Week 16
Vikings RB suffers sprained ankle

FFToday's Take: Peterson sprained his ankle late in the second quarter and missed much of the 2nd half of Sunday's victory over the Bears. Peterson was held to yards on carries while backup Jerick McKinnon racked up 86 yards and a TD on 11 touches (4 receptions). Peterson will likely be limited in practice this week.


Injury Adrian Peterson limited in practice
Teddy Bridgewater practices in full

Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has a left shoulder injury — that’s his non-throwing arm, of course — but he was listed as a full participant. Running back Adrian Peterson was limited with a hamstring injury. (Star Tribune)

FFToday's Take: It's too early in the week to be concerned about Adrian Peterson's status for Week 11. The veteran running back remains likely to play against the Packers on Sunday but owners will want to check in later in the week for an update. If Peterson's hamstring remains a concern heading into the weekend, Jerick McKinnon would fill the void in the backfield. Teddy Bridgewater didn't miss any reps in practice despite being listed on the injury report. He appears to be playing through a nagging shoulder injury but won't miss any time.
