    Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn would not say if the team is pursuing free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) but does believe Peterson can still play.

    Huddle Up: The Lions have been using a committee at running back but do not have a running back like Peterson on their roster. He likely would receive most of the carries if he signs with the Lions but may not see much work in the passing game. Peterson could be a low-end No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues if he joins the Lions.

  • Posted: 3/25/2017 6:04am ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) said he is willing to wait to sign with a team because he is looking for the best fit for him and a chance to win the Super Bowl.

    Huddle Up: Peterson has not met with any teams at this point and has not been linked with a lot of teams, so owners will need to continue to monitor the situation. It is not known what role he will have with his new team, but he could be considered a No. 2 or No. 3 running back if he receives most of the carries.

  • Posted: 3/24/2017 11:42am ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) reportedly wanted more than $8 million in the first year of any contract he signed during the initial wave of free agency.

    Huddle Up: If true, this report explains the main reason AP is still unemployed. Eddie Lacy landed a one-year deal worth $5.5 million and Latavius Murray's three-year contract averages out to $5 million per year, and both are considerably younger and more useful in the passing game than Peterson. With a draft class heavy in talent at his position, the 32-year-old will likely need to cut his asking price in half to get a bite in free agency.

  • Posted: 3/24/2017 9:34am ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) was reportedly close to making a visit with the Green Bay Packers before they decided his initial asking price was too high, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

    Huddle Up: It's too bad, as Peterson would have been a nice fit as a powerful, early-down thumper for a Packers' attack who needs the element in their offense. Look for Green Bay to turn its attention to backs like Oklahoma's Samaje Perine and BYU's Jamaal Williams next month in the 2017 NFL Draft in order to fill the void. Peterson will almost certainly need the lower his asking price in order to get a job before training camp.

  • Posted: 3/22/2017 7:22pm ET

    The Green Bay Packers have 'some' interest in a visit with free-agent WR Adrian Peterson (Vikings), but it is believed that might not happen until after the team can take stock of its roster following the draft, according to ESPN's Ben Goessling.

    Huddle Up: All things considered, Green Bay may actually be Peterson's best landing spot. The Oakland Raiders seem more inclined to pursue Marshawn Lynch, while the New York Giants run a more shotgun-heavy, one-back offense that has never been a good fit for him. With such a talented incoming draft class at his position, Peterson could easily be waiting for a training camp injury before he signs with a team.

  • Posted: 3/16/2017 2:18pm ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) will not be re-signed by the Minnesota Vikings, according to general manager Rick Spielman.

    Huddle Up: This shouldn't be a surprise since the Vikings just signed Latavius Murray. Murray figures to begin offseason activities as the starter in Minnesota, but Jerick McKinnon could give him a run for his money. Even so, expect McKinnon to split time with Murray, with Murray handling the majority of snaps. Murray should be regarded as a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 behind a suspect Vikings' offensive line.

  • Posted: 3/13/2017 9:41pm ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) left his visit with the Seattle Seahawks without signing a contract Monday, March 13. The sense here is that the Seahawks are in the 'information-gathering process,' as they plan to host fellow free-agent RBs Latavius Murray (Raiders) and Jamaal Charles (Chiefs) this week as well.

    Huddle Up: The Seahawks also had Eddie Lacy visit over the weekend, so they're really getting a look at a handful of veteran running backs. Peterson has potential to be useful in fantasy as a change-of-pace back in a lot places, but Seattle wouldn't be one of them, as they already have Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise lined up for a lot of work. Even so, Peterson's situation is still one to watch closely throughout the offseason.

  • Posted: 3/11/2017 9:13pm ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) is scheduled to visit with the Seattle Seahawks.

    Huddle Up: Peterson has made a career of defying the odds, but he figures to be part of a committee wherever he signs. He could be a RB2 in the right situation.

  • Posted: 3/8/2017 10:30am ET

    Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent RB Adrian Peterson would like to play for the Seattle Seahawks, per Peterson's father. Sources familiar with situation say Seattle doesn't have immediate interest in signing Peterson, but waiting to see how the market plays out could lead to the Seahawks revisiting the situation.

    Huddle Up: Wherever Peterson lands, he probably won't be better than a No. 2 running back in fantasy. Drafting him as a third is safer, but name value may inflate his stock.

  • Posted: 3/7/2017 11:37am ET

    Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent RB Adrian Peterson has nothing brewing with the New England Patriots for now.

    Huddle Up: Peterson can be an RB2 on a team that features him, but he might wind up in a major timeshare. His value is on a pendulum that can swing either way right now.

  • Posted: 3/6/2017 6:49pm ET

    Impending free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) said he would 'consider' taking a team-friendly contract with the New England Patriots, according to a 'source close to Peterson.'

    Huddle Up: Peterson is at the back-end of what has been a truly magnificent NFL career, but one thing he's still missing is a championship. Other aging players have joined the Patriots to secure their first title in the past, so it certainly wouldn't be out of the question with Peterson. If he were to land in New England and take over LeGarrette Blount's role, he could provide solid value as an RB2.

  • Posted: 3/5/2017 9:42am ET

    Impending free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) is reportedly talking with other teams but not drumming up much interest among league executives at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis as the NFL heads toward the start of its new league year Thursday, March 9.

    Huddle Up: Turning 32 later this month, Peterson is unlikely to get much money in free agency in part because the incoming draft class is loaded at his position. He may returning to Minnesota is his best option. If that occurs, he's going to be hard to trust as anything more than a RB2 with his recent injury history, age and the current state of the Vikings' offensive line.

  • Posted: 3/3/2017 8:28am ET

    Impending free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) has interest in the Oakland Raiders.

    Huddle Up: The soon-to-be 32-year-old still has RB2 value in fantasy, and Oakland has a good offensive line. That was one of the things that plagued him last year before his knee injury.

  • Posted: 3/2/2017 9:36am ET

    Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) is not expected to be of interest to the New York Giants, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: The Giants could be set at running back with up-and-coming Paul Perkins and veteran Shane Vereen. Perkins has the most intrigue as the Giants' roster currently stands, especially after the release of Rashad Jennings. If Perkins can earn his role as New York's primary running back, he has RB3 to RB2 upside in 2017.

  • Posted: 3/1/2017 12:06pm ET

    New York Giants head coach Ben McAdoo said the team will look at free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) when they evaluate available players. 'We'll go take a look at him, we'll evaluate him, we'll get a grade on anyone who's available and we'll make those decisions in terms of what's best for the Giants moving forward,' McAdoo said.

    Huddle Up: Peterson probably would share work with Paul Perkins if he signs with the Giants but could receive a majority of carries in that situation. He should have a solid offensive role wherever he plays in 2017 and can be a low-end No. 1 or No. 2 fantasy running back depending on his role.

  • Posted: 3/1/2017 11:07am ET

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not expected to aggressively pursue free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) at this time, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: The Buccaneers still have Doug Martin on the roster and are interested in re-signing Jacquizz Rodgers, so it appears they are not looking at Peterson at this point. Peterson can be a low-end No. 1 or a No. 2 running back depending on his team, while Rodgers could be a No. 2 or No. 3 back if he returns to the Bucs.

  • Posted: 3/1/2017 10:37am ET

    Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman was noncommittal about the possibility of the Vikings re-signing RB Adrian Peterson this offseason. Spielman said he is open to Peterson returning to the Vikings but is not sure what will happen during free agency.

    Huddle Up: Peterson probably will receive interest from some teams but re-signing with the Vikings is still a possibility. Peterson may have to be part of a running back committee in 2017 but probably would receive most of the work in the committee. Peterson can be considered a No. 1 or No. 2 back for fantasy owners if he finds a solid role with a team.

  • Posted: 2/28/2017 7:35pm ET

    Updating a previous report, the Dallas Cowboys will not be pursuing Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson when he becomes an unrestricted free agent next week, according to a team source, because they are 'not a fit' for Peterson with RB Ezekiel Elliott on the roster.

    Huddle Up: Well, that logic can't be argued, as Elliott looks like he has all the tools to be the best running back in football over the next few years, if not more, so Peterson's services wouldn't really be needed. In any event, the 31-year-old would be wise to land in another situation that would present him with a more active workload, as he can still be effective when healthy.

  • Posted: 2/28/2017 10:28am ET

    Dallas Cowboys general manager/owner Jerry Jones will pursue free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) if he still available by the March 9 start of free agency.

    Huddle Up: The Minnesota Vikings declined Peterson's 2017 option earlier Tuesday, but it is still possible - albeit unlikely - he could re-sign with the team before the start of the new league year. Jones appears fascinated by the idea pairing AP with Ezekiel Elliott, but the Cowboys have bigger fish to fry than trying to upgrading the depth at running back. Despite the reported interest on both sides, Dallas should be considered a longshot to land Peterson.

  • Posted: 2/28/2017 9:12am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will not have his 2017 option exercised, the team announced Tuesday, Feb. 28, and he'll become an unrestricted free agent March 9.

    Huddle Up: Peterson really struggled before his knee injury, but the team didn't really put him in a position to succeed. They ran from the shotgun formation, which is not to Peterson's skill set, and the offensive line was in shambles. It'll be interesting to see where he lands and what he has left as he turns 32 next month. He's probably not a great pick as an RB1 at this stage, but we've learned time and time again not to discount the future Hall of Famer.

  • Posted: 2/24/2017 9:07pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he perplexed by those who question whether or not he can bounce back in 2017.

    Huddle Up: Peterson delivered miraculous comebacks in 2011 and 2015, but age is not on his side. He could still be a RB2 in the right situation, but his chances of being an elite back again are slim.

  • Posted: 2/24/2017 2:10pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said he has not talked with RB Adrian Peterson at this point but will not make a decision on Peterson's contract until he talks with him and his agent. Spielman said the team will make a decision before the start of free agency.

    Huddle Up: Peterson likely will not return to the Vikings under his current contract but could stay with the team if he restructures his contract. Peterson probably will be with a new team in 2017 but may not be able to handle a workload like he did in the past. Peterson could be a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues depending on his role.

  • Posted: 2/23/2017 12:38pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's future with the Vikings is still in limbo. General manager Rick Spielman said Minnesota hasn't yet made a decision on their running back, but it's unlikely that Peterson remains a Viking if he's not willing to take a big pay cut. He is due $18 million next season.

    Huddle Up: Drafting Peterson this offseason is much too risky of a proposition after he suffered another serious knee injury last year. He has missed 28 games the last three seasons and may be close to the end of his career. He obviously has RB1 potential when he's healthy, but it's just too risky to take him in RB1 territory, wherever he plays.

  • Posted: 2/20/2017 2:55pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RBs Adrian Peterson and/or Jerick McKinnon could see increased usage in 2017 with offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. Shurmur wants to improve the offense as a whole, but he said the key and focal point of the offense will be to do a better job in the running game.

    Huddle Up: Peterson's future with the Vikings remains unclear, but either he or McKinnon could be better used next season, with Matt Asiata remaining in a change-of-pace and passing role. No matter who Peterson plays for in 2017, drafting him will be playing with fire considering he's missed almost two full seasons in the past three years.

  • Posted: 2/19/2017 7:20am ET

    The New York Giants have not expressed interest in acquiring Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, even though the 32-year-old veteran has hinted that he wouldn't mind playing for the team if he doesn't return to the Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Unless Peterson agrees to take a significant pay cut this offseason, his playing days in Minnesota could be over. He should receive the bulk of the carries wherever he lands and is still capable of being a solid fantasy contributor, although his age and recent injury history mean he should no longer be viewed as an RB1 in most fantasy formats.

  • Posted: 2/16/2017 6:41pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson tweeted Wednesday, Feb. 15, that the New York Giants have been 'making some interesting moves' this offseason.

    Huddle Up: Peterson has already said he would have interest in joining the Giants, and with the release of Rashad Jennings, the Giants could be in the market for a back. Wherever Peterson ends up in 2017, he is likely to see enough carries to provide RB2 production.

  • Posted: 2/5/2017 12:00pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson could be in play with the Dallas Cowboys as a potential free agent, according to league sources.

    Huddle Up: Peterson is a Texas native, but this seems like an unlikely marriage from the Cowboys' perspective for multiple reasons. First and foremost, an aging Peterson isn't play much over Ezekiel Elliott. Secondly, 'All Day' isn't particularly strong in the passing game, so he wouldn't even be a third-down upgrade for Dallas. Additionally, Peterson isn't going to come cheap and probably wouldn't be all that open to accepting a pure backup role anyway.

  • Posted: 2/3/2017 8:08pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's future with the team won't be decided until some 'tough analysis' is performed, according to president Mark Wilf.

    Huddle Up: Peterson will likely have to agree to a pay cut to return to Minnesota, and there is a good chance he plays elsewhere in 2017. He days as a fantasy stud are likely in the past, but he will still be an intriguing option in 2017 if he lands with a strong offense.

  • Posted: 1/19/2017 9:37am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he would be interested in the New York Giants if he becomes available this offseason.

    Huddle Up: The Giants have used multiple running backs over the last few years and may be interested in Peterson as their main back. Peterson should receive most of the carries wherever he goes and can be a No. 2 running back in most leagues.

  • Posted: 1/19/2017 9:31am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he would be interested in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers if he becomes available this offseason.

    Huddle Up: The Buccaneers may be looking for a running back this offseason with Doug Martin serving a suspension and Jacquizz Rodgers scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent. Peterson probably will be the starter if he joins the Bucs and could be considered a No. 2 running back in fantasy.

  • Posted: 1/19/2017 9:24am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he would be interested in the Houston Texans if he becomes available this offseason.

    Huddle Up: The Texans signed Lamar Miller to a lucrative contract last offseason, so they probably would not consider adding Peterson. Miller rushed for 1,073 yards and five touchdowns in 2016 and can be a No. 2 running back for fantasy owners. Peterson should be able to find a starting job with a team and could be a No. 2 back in fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 1/10/2017 7:48am ET

    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.
