|Vikings | Adrian Peterson wanted by Minnesota|
Wed, 14 Jan 2015 21:39:57 -0800
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is wanted back by general manager Rick Spielman once he is eligible to apply for reinstatement April 15. "I don't know if there's a team in the NFL that wouldn't want Adrian Peterson on the football team," Spielman said Wednesday, Jan. 14.
Fantasy Tip: If and when Peterson returns, and he knocks off a little rust, he can still be a force in fantasy football. He turns 30 on March 21, and will be heading into the back nine of his career. However, he has proven detractors wrong in the past.

|Vikings | Adrian Peterson wanted back by HC|
Tue, 30 Dec 2014 11:23:26 -0800
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will be wanted back by head coach Mike Zimmer when Peterson's suspension ends next year. "I think he's a good person. I think obviously he's a great running back and if it works out that way and things work out and he gets his life in order ... then I will be in his corner whenever the decision is made [to bring him back or not]. Peterson was told earlier this month that he would serve a two-game suspension next year for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.
Fantasy Tip: There's still a lot of watching and listening to be done this offseason with Peterson's situation, but if his two-game suspension upholds, he could still be an RB1 heading into 2015 fantasy drafts.

|Vikings | Adrian Peterson expected two-game ban|
Mon, 15 Dec 2014 07:30:37 -0800
Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson was told by executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent that he would serve a two-game suspension for violating the personal conduct policy, instead of missing the entire season. Peterson's camp has an audio recording of the exchange that took place six days before he was suspended for the season.
Fantasy Tip: Peterson can be dropped in all formats after his suspension was upheld. He turns 30 in March and will likely have some fantasy uncertainty in next year's drafts. He has been a machine throughout his career, and he could return with a vengeance or he could begin his inevitable decline.

|Vikings | Adrian Peterson considered retirement|
Sat, 13 Dec 2014 05:12:31 -0800
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he considered retirement from the NFL because he is disappointed with the disciplinary system. "I've considered retiring from the NFL," Peterson said. "I still made $8 million dollars this year. I've thought about getting back into the real estate (business in Texas) I'm already in. That's something I've been interested in, something I'm involved in. I've thought about getting back into that. I've thought about going after the Olympics -- you only live once. It might be time for me to pursue that, as well. I love playing football, don't get me wrong, but this situation is deeper than that. For me, it's like, 'Why should I continue to be a part of an organization or a business that handles players the way they do? Making money off the field anyway, why not continue to pursue that (Olympic) dream and pursue other dreams and hang up the cleats?'"
Fantasy Tip: It seems like a long shot that Peterson would retire to pursue other interests at this point, but this will be a big story to watch as the offseason moves on.

|Vikings | Adrian Peterson's appeal denied|
Fri, 12 Dec 2014 14:30:27 -0800
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's appeal of his suspension has been denied by the appointed appeals officer. Peterson likely will be reinstated if he does what he needs to do between now and April 15. Peterson could take his case to federal court.
Fantasy Tip: It looks like Peterson will not be able to play in 2014, so owners that are still holding onto Peterson can drop him in their leagues.

|Vikings | Adrian Peterson likely back next week?|
Fri, 05 Dec 2014 06:37:21 -0800
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is likely, but not certain, to be reinstated by league appeals officer Harold Henderson next week, in the opinion of columnist Peter King. The team would have to decide whether to activate him for the final three games.
Fantasy Tip: Peterson needs to be owned in most leagues, and those in the fantasy playoffs may be getting a nice gift. Keep in mind, though, the team has been working with the league to keep him off the field. There is no guarantee he suits up.

|Vikings | Adrian Peterson case could go to fed court|
Tue, 02 Dec 2014 03:52:36 -0800
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson could have his appeal of a suspension by the NFL end up in federal court if the National Football League Players Association is not convinced of the hearing officer's neutral status.
Fantasy Tip: As previously mentioned, this likely won't impact Peterson's fantasy value this season as he is likely out for the rest of 2014. But this situation could get messy before it gets better. Stash Peterson accordingly on your bench if you have room.
