QB | Donovan McNabb | Washington Redskins | Fantasy

The Vikings must first determine whether Peterson is mostly healed, but Peterson has improved drastically from last week. "If I was a betting man, I'd say he plays," Nelson Peterson said. "Obviously they have to check him out, and last week he wasn't able to go. But he's feeling a lot better and I know he wants to play." Injured Reserve is not an option Peterson wants to exercise. "He's not that kind of guy," Nelson said. "He wants to help the team."
