    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 1/2/2017 10:02am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 1/2/2017 8:28am ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/30/2016 4:26pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/29/2016 6:31pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (groin, knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 29.

    Huddle Up: It is looking like Peterson will sit out the finale, making Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon potential flex plays against Chicago.

  • Posted: 12/28/2016 11:44am ET

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

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/23/2016 8:14pm ET

    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.

    Huddle Up: 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.

  • Posted: 12/23/2016 10:00am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (groin, knee) will not play in Week 16 against the Green Bay Packers after aggravating a groin injury in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: This was always a possibility considering how quickly Peterson was trying to return from an injury that would have been a season-ender for most players. With likely very little to play in Week 17, it is possible AP has played his last game with the Vikings. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata will resume their timeshare against the Packers. Neither player makes for much of a high-upside flex play for fantasy championship week.

  • Posted: 12/22/2016 11:42am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (groin, knee) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 22.

    Huddle Up: There is a chance that Peterson will not be able to play in Week 16, so owners should check on his status later in the week. He probably will only see limited carries if he plays and should only be considered a flex option in leagues.

  • Posted: 12/21/2016 12:12pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (groin, knee) is dealing with a groin injury in addition to his knee injury. He did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: Peterson's status will not be known until later in the week, so owners should monitor the situation. Peterson probably would be see limited carries if he plays and would not be more than a flex option in most leagues.

  • Posted: 12/21/2016 11:06am ET

    Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) said he is taking things one day at a time and is not sure if he will be able to play in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Peterson did not do much in his limited playing time in Week 15 and probably would not see many more carries if he is able to play in Week 16. Owners should monitor the situation during the week to see if he will play but should only consider him a flex option if he plays.

  • Posted: 12/21/2016 9:22am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) is out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 21.

    Huddle Up: Peterson, at best, seems likely entrenched in a timeshare with Jerick McKinnon. The way AD has looked behind this offensive line lends more risk than reward against the Green Bay Packers as a flex option.

  • Posted: 12/21/2016 8:42am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) is not quite 100 percent, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. Zimmer offered no indication Wednesday, Dec. 21, how much Peterson will play in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: A timeshare with Jerick McKinnon is most likely, and the way AD has looked behind this offensive line lends more risk than reward against the Green Bay Packers. Both backs are flex options with quite a bit of risk.

  • Posted: 12/19/2016 7:58am ET

    Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson played 12 snaps in Week 15.

    Huddle Up: He had six rushes for 22 yards and a one-yard catch. He also lost a fumble. The Vikings were down by a lot early, and that had something to do with his sparse usage. He'll probably share the load with Jerick McKinnon in Week 16, and he's a flex option against the Green Bay Packers.

  • Posted: 12/18/2016 6:19pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) returned to action in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts after missing 11 games due to a torn meniscus in his right knee. He ran six times for 22 yards, but also had a lost fumble in the second quarter.

    Huddle Up: Peterson played sparingly in the second half with a lopsided score on the board. He is more of a flex fantasy option heading into Week 16 at Green Bay.

  • Posted: 12/17/2016 10:41pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) will start in the team's Week 15 game against the Indianapolis Colts, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. Peterson's workload will be determined by how well his knee holds up.

    Huddle Up: Well, that escalated quickly. Peterson has gone from hoping to play in Week 16 to starting tomorrow in a matter of days. While it's impossible to gauge how many touches he'll get, he has proven in the past to heal quickly -- though it's also important to remember AD did little prior to getting hurt. Peterson is an intriguing lottery ticket for those in a bind, but steadier options should be deployed if available.

  • Posted: 12/17/2016 3:21pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is expected to play a bit role in Week 15 against the Indianapolis Colts before getting a more substantial workload in Week 16 versus the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Peterson has been out since Week 2 and the fact he will even be able to return the season is incredible, so owners are advised to keep him on the bench for at least this week. Outside of his own exploits, AP has virtually nothing working in his favor to support the notion of a huge game this week (long layoff, doesn't run well out of the shotgun - the Vikings' new base formation, terrible offensive line, etc.). Perhaps if he looks explosive against the Colts, he could considered a low-end flex option next week.

  • Posted: 12/17/2016 9:21am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) was activated from the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 17. The team also waived DT Toby Johnson.

    Huddle Up: It is not known how many touches Peterson will receive but he probably will see limited snaps during the game. He has the potential to make big plays, but owners should not count on him to have a big game. He can still be considered a flex option in some leagues.

  • Posted: 12/16/2016 2:14pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) said he will be able to play in the team's Week 15 game. Peterson said he plans to wear a knee brace when he is playing.

    Huddle Up: Peterson has not played since September because of the injury, so owners will need to check the inactive list to see if he will play. He probably will receive limited snaps if he is active because of his long layoff. Peterson could be a flex option in some leagues, but owners in the playoffs probably should look for safer options to use.

  • Posted: 12/15/2016 10:34am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) is participating in practice Thursday, Dec. 15.

    Huddle Up: Peterson appears to have an outside chance to play in Week 15 but is more likely to play in Week 16. He probably will receive limited touches when he returns but could be a flex option in daily fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 12/13/2016 5:40am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) hopes to return to practice this week and return for Week 16 Dec. 24 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Peterson returning would probably not be in a typical, featured role, and his chances at helping in the fantasy playoffs are pretty minimal. He still has the upside worth holding onto just in case.

  • Posted: 12/7/2016 11:05am ET

    Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) said he will only return this season if the Vikings are still in playoff contention.

    Huddle Up: The Vikings have lost six of their last seven games, so there is a chance that Peterson sits out the rest of the season. He may see limited snaps if he does return and could be at least a flex option in some leagues.

  • Posted: 12/7/2016 9:56am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) said Wednesday, Dec. 7, that he has begun running and cutting, and he expects to get back sometime this season.

    Huddle Up: It might be too late for him to be a factor in fantasy, but the potential is still there if you can afford the roster spot.

  • Posted: 11/29/2016 10:52am ET

    Updating a previous story, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) is 'ahead of schedule', according to head coach Mike Zimmer, who told reporters Tuesday, Nov. 29, was not the first day Peterson was able to run sprints off to the side of practice.

    Huddle Up: There is still no timetable for his return, but it is looking more probable by the day. Peterson still has to get in something resembling football shape before he is ready to handle significant work on the field, and that may not happen before most fantasy playoffs are wrapping up. Nevertheless, the news is still encouraging and bodes well for his return to the field this season.

  • Posted: 11/29/2016 10:24am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) was seen running several short sprints during the open portion of practice Tuesday, Nov. 29.

    Huddle Up: Obviously, Peterson still has a long ways to go in order to find his way on the field before the end of the season, but he is doing a fine job of helping his remaining owners keep the faith. Whether Peterson is able to reward that faith is another matter entirely. The Vikings' offensive line is playing about as poorly as any front five in the league, and Peterson wasn't exactly tearing it up before going down (1.6 yards per carry). He's worth a stash, but he's unlikely to make much of a meaningful impact this season.

  • Posted: 11/24/2016 5:54am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) has yet to be cleared to run on the field, but he is running on an underwater treadmill while putting 30 percent of his body weight on his knee. The next step will be running in the anti-gravity pool and then normal running. His return date is unknown until he runs under normal conditions to see how the knee reacts.

    Huddle Up: Three months from surgery would be Week 16 on Dec. 24. That would be a best-case scenario. If you're looking at a deep playoff run and have the space, he's worth the risk to stash.

  • Posted: 11/21/2016 8:17pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) is making progress in his recovery from surgery to repair a lateral meniscus tear in his right knee and he could be back on the field my mid-to-late December, league sources said Monday, Nov. 21. He had an exam late last week and might start running this week. He might return for the Week 15 game against the Indianapolis Colts or the Week 16 road game against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: If you have the roster flexibility and are in the hunt for a playoff spot in your fantasy league, it isn't a bad idea to stash him away just in case. He could help plenty of fantasy owners to a championship. At the very least, squirreling him away on your roster also keeps Peterson away from your rivals.

  • Posted: 11/17/2016 3:48pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) has resumed light running. He's still receiving treatment on his knee following September surgery to repair a torn meniscus, and his timetable for a return 'continues to be December.'

    Huddle Up: If you're desperate and have room on the bench, Peterson makes for a great stash, as it's looking possible that he'll be able to return before the conclusion of the campaign. In fact, the Vikings may do everything in their power to get him back on the field, considering how dreadfully bad their league-worst running game has been, and if a playoff berth comes down to the final weeks, don't be surprised if he does indeed suit up again for Minnesota. If you're in a league that runs through Week 17, you should be especially enticed with this development.

  • Posted: 11/14/2016 12:35pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) continues his rehab from meniscus surgery, but head coach Mike Zimmer told reporters Monday, Nov. 14, he has 'no idea' as to whether or not Peterson will play at any point this season.

    Huddle Up: Peterson is eligible to return to practice and come off the Reserve/Injured list this week, but that apparently has no chance of happening. With the Minnesota offense is in such utter disarray at this point, it would be hard to justify bringing him back anyway. Especially considering Peterson is due nearly $12 million in 2017 - the final year of his contract - the team may choose to move on from the 31-year-old workhorse, meaning he may have already played his final snap as a Viking.

  • Posted: 9/26/2016 9:25am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) is focused solely on playing again this season, according to a report from Pro Football Talk.

    Huddle Up: Peterson has to sit out until Week 11, but it would be mistake to rule him out for the season given his track record. Owners in deeper leagues or those with IR spots are advised to hold as long as possible in part because AP is one of the few true feature backs around, but Minnesota's offensive line has been so bad so far that he should be considered no more than a RB2 even if he does return. Jerick McKinnon will continue to serve as the lead back during his Peterson's absence.

  • Posted: 9/24/2016 3:50pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) has told people in and around the organization that he believes he can be ready to play when he is eligible to be activated from the Reserve/Injured list in eight weeks, according to sources. It is believed that it will take at least one month before doctors will be able to tell whether an expedited return for Peterson is possible.

    Huddle Up: Peterson will miss at least half of the season because of the injury, but owners should monitor the situation to see if he will be able to play in the last few games. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata will share work while Peterson is out. McKinnon can be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in most leagues, while Asiata can be a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 9/23/2016 12:17pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) was officially placed on injured reserve Friday, September 23.

    Huddle Up: Peterson will miss the rest of the regular season. In his absence, Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon will control the Minnesota backfield, with the latter having a considerably higher ceiling. Asiata, though, has value, too, as he could vulture numerous touchdowns from up close like he did in 2014 when Peterson missed all but one game. Ronnie Hillman lurks as he learns the offense.

  • Posted: 9/22/2016 7:14am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) had successful surgery to repair his torn lateral meniscus in his knee Thursday, Sept. 22. There were no additional injuries in or surrounding the knee joint.

    Huddle Up: Peterson is expected to be out until at least December, but he could come back quicker, or he could be done for the fantasy season. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata are expected to share the work, and they're flex considerations against the Carolina Panthers.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 2:28pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings officials say that RB Adrian Peterson (knee) does not have a torn lateral collateral ligament, but other sources have said that he does have a torn ligament.

    Huddle Up: Peterson is still expected to miss several months because of his torn meniscus, but he would need more time to recover if he has a torn lateral collateral ligament. Jerick McKinnon is expected to receive a majority of the work at running back with Peterson out and can be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 1:58pm ET

    Updating an ongoing story, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) has a torn lateral collateral ligament in addition to his torn meniscus, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Peterson is not expected to return until at least December and probably will miss the rest of the season with multiple torn ligaments in his knee. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata will split snaps for the next few months. McKinnon can be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in all leagues, while Asiata can be a flex option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 1:12pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Sept. 21.

    Huddle Up: Peterson is expected to miss several months because of knee surgery, but owners may want to keep a hold of Peterson since he could return before the end of the season. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata will share carries while Peterson is sidelined and both could be flex options for owners.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 9:10am ET

    Updating an ongoing story, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) has what is known as a 'bucket handle tear' of his meniscus, which usually requires a three-to-four-month recovery and up to six months.

    Huddle Up: The more news that comes out, the more fantasy owners cringe after the believed optimism once ligament damage was ruled out. Anything you get from Peterson in fantasy the rest of the way should be seen as a bonus. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata will share the work, but McKinnon could wind up being the featured back with Asiata on third downs. Both are flex options while Peterson is out.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 9:07am ET

    Updating earlier reports, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) will have surgery Thursday, Sept. 22, to repair a tear of his lateral meniscus in his right knee.

    Huddle Up: December was reported as a potential return date, but with him having the surgery to repair the cartilage instead of trimming it, his return date is up in the air. Peterson has healed quickly before, but he is 31 now. Anything you get from him in fantasy, sadly, would be a bonus right now. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata will share the work, but McKinnon could wind up being the featured back with Asiata on third downs. Both are flex options while Peterson is out.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 8:52am ET

    Updating earlier reports, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) could be out until December, at the earliest, with a return for a potential playoff run possible.

    Huddle Up: We'll know more once he has the operation, and Peterson has been a quick healer in the past. However, he's 31, and it's too early to peg a target date. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata figure to share the work while he's out. Asiata has been playing third downs, and they could opt to use McKinnon in the lead role. Both are merely flex options against the Carolina Panthers this week.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 8:40am ET

    Updating an earlier report, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) has told two sources that he is having his meniscus repaired, not trimmed, which would require a longer recovery period.

    Huddle Up: On the bright side, Peterson has been a freak in his recovery from injuries in the past. However, it's highly unlikely he misses less than a month. The team has a bye in Week 6, and their Week 7 game is a month from tomorrow's operation. A target could be Week 8 on Halloween against the Chicago Bears. However, we won't know a firm target date until he has the operation. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata figure to share the work while he's out. Asiata has been playing third downs, and they could opt to use McKinnon in the lead role. Both are merely flex options against the Carolina Panthers this week.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 8:18am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) plans to have surgery Thursday, Sept. 22, to repair a torn meniscus in his knee.

    Huddle Up: The procedure usually requires four to six weeks to return, but there have been cases where a simple trim of the meniscus only cost a player two weeks. With the operation coming late in the week, a three-game absence is all but a given. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata will share the work, but McKinnon could wind up being the featured back with Asiata on third downs. Both are flex options while Peterson is out.

  • Posted: 9/21/2016 6:11am ET

    Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) is still soliciting opinions on how to proceed with his torn meniscus and figure out if he's capable of playing through the injury.

    Huddle Up: The injury usually requires a scope, which typically takes a month to recover from. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata figure to share the work if he's out. Asiata has been playing third downs, and they could opt to use McKinnon in the lead role. The line play has been awful, though, and both aren't much more than a flex play.

  • Posted: 9/19/2016 12:14pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) suffered a torn meniscus in Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. Peterson has not yet been ruled out for Week 4, however.

    Huddle Up: It would seem like a minor miracle if Peterson is able to play next week against the Carolina Panthers, but, don't put anything past him. If Peterson can't go, then Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata would likely see a split in touches, although McKinnon is the better bet to produce. Stay tuned to Peterson's practice participation in the coming days.

  • Posted: 9/19/2016 7:48am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's 1.6 yards per carry is the fewest rushing yards per attempt by a player with at least 30 rushes since the 1970 NFL/AFL merger.

    Huddle Up: Peterson's line has been pretty abysmal, and now he has a knee injury, which we're awaiting MRI results on. He's highly questionable for Week 3. Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon would be low-end flex options if Peterson is out.

  • Posted: 9/19/2016 5:06am ET

    Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) will have an MRI on his right knee Monday, Sept. 19, but those close to him believe he avoided major structural damage. 'He might miss a week. I don't know if he will or not,' head coach Mike Zimmer said. 'Whatever it was has calmed down now, so we'll see.'

    Huddle Up: Peterson has been borderline useless through two weeks of fantasy with very little room to run. Matt Asiata has seen most of the third-down work, but Jerick McKinnon could see the bulk of time if Peterson is out. Both Asiata and McKinnon are worth grabbing for low-end flex consideration.

  • Posted: 9/18/2016 7:42pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) was tended to on the field by the training staff in the third quarter of the Week 2 game against the Green Bay Packers due to an apparent right shin or ankle injury. He was holding the area while sitting up on the ground and unable to put any weight on the leg as he was assisted off the field.

    Huddle Up: Peterson has been having a difficult game, rushing for just 19 yards on 12 carries. Jerick McKinnon would figure to see more touches if Peterson needs to miss time.

  • Posted: 9/16/2016 2:25pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Peterson will look to improve after being held in check in Week 1 and will receive plenty of carries during the game. Peterson should be a starting candidate in all fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 9/14/2016 3:05pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14.

    Huddle Up: Peterson was held in check in Week 1 when he rushed for only 31 yards but will see most of the work at running back again in Week 2. He should still be a starting candidate in all fantasy leagues despite the quiet opener.

  • Posted: 9/12/2016 6:44am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson rushed 19 times for 31 yards in Week 1 Sunday, Sept. 11.

    Huddle Up: The offense was pretty stagnant in the season opener. It's possible, maybe probable, that Sam Bradford takes over for Shaun Hill in Week 2. They'll need a boost to keep up with the Green Bay Packers next week. AP, or AD, remains an RB1 option in fantasy.

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will not play in the final two preseason games. Peterson made the decision himself and said it's in his best interest to rest until Week 1 of the regular season against the Tennessee Titans.

    Huddle Up: This is commonplace as Peterson has not played in the preseason since 2011. It's usually a precursor to him attaining RB1 status year after year. He's still an RB1 candidate going into his 10th season in the NFL. The Vikings will continue to rely on him and he should be one of the first backs taken in all fantasy formats.
