Vikings | AP facing severe discipline

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 19:37:39 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson still has not come to grips with the prospect his 2014 season has all but officially ended and that his future in the NFL is uncertain, multiple sources said Sunday, Sept. 21. Even if Peterson reaches a plea deal on a child abuse charge with Texas prosecutors, the NFL will severely discipline the running back, according to sources. The team does not foresee Peterson in their future, according to team sources.

Vikings | AP wants to resolve case swiftly

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 18:42:36 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson wants his representation to accelerate his trial date for child-abuse charges, with the goal of getting it set for 2014, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. The broader goal will be to resolve the charges in time for Peterson to return to action for the Vikings this year. He would need to resolve the charges in a way that doesn't expose him to a potential suspension without pay under the personal-conduct policy.

Fantasy Tip: Until Peterson returns, it appears to be the Matt Asiata show. He hasn't lit it up in place of Peterson, but he has been an adequate low-end RB2 or flex play. Jerick McKinnon is waiting in the wings, but he was limited to four touches and suffered an injury. As far as AP, all fantasy owners can do is wait and hope their first-round pick can return sooner rather than later.

Fantasy Tip: An earlier trial would make the Vikings decide if Peterson will play again this season. Peterson should be kept on the bench until more details on his trial come out.
