Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will not play in the team's preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals Saturday, Aug. 16. He played in one series in the team's third preseason game last year, but other than that, he hasn't had a carry in the preseason since 2011.
Fantasy Tip: There's nothing to see here. The Vikes won't put AD in harm's way during the preseason, although he may see a series of action next week, if at all. Peterson remains one of the few options worth considering as your No. 1 overall fantasy pick.

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson appears to be improving his pass-catching skills. He dropped one pass in practice Monday, Aug. 11, but had some nice catches.
Fantasy Tip: Peterson is already one of the safest selections with one of the top three picks in fantasy drafts. Improving his pass-catching skills would go a long way in making him even more valuable, too, especially in point-per-reception formats.

As expected, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (rest) dressed for the preseason opener against the Oakland Raiders Friday, Aug. 8, but he did not play. Peterson hasn't had a carry in the preseason since the 2011 campaign.
Fantasy Tip: Peterson is unlikely to see many carries in the exhibition games, if he see any at all. Fantasy owners are pleased with seeing him with a baseball cap on the sidelines, as their cornerstone is not risking injury in meaningless games. He'll once again be one of the top fantasy running backs in the league.

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he is looking forward to playing in the team's new offense because it is more versatile than the one the team had been using for the last several seasons. "Let's call it what it is: I thought in the past, we've been predictable," Peterson said. "I'm sure you guys wrote stories about us being predictable the past seven years. You won't be able to write that story this year. That's pretty much all I'm saying. You won't be able to do that, because this offense is so versatile."
Fantasy Tip: Peterson could get more involved in the passing game in 2014, which will only help his fantasy value. He should be gone within the first few picks in all fantasy leagues.

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson does not need to play in the preseason to show something to the coaching staff, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. Zimmer said Peterson could get a few carries during the preseason if Peterson asks to play.
Fantasy Tip: Peterson has shown he is one of the best running backs in the league and does not need to prove anything in preseason games. Peterson should be a top five pick in all fantasy leagues.

"He's been able to do some real good things in the offense, picking it up well and just his running style."
