Vikings | Adrian Peterson not attending workouts

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 10:37:21 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is not in attendance for the start of the team's offseason workout program Monday, April 20, according to league sources. However, Peterson hasn't attended this stage of the team's offseason before. Minnesota wasn't expecting Peterson to show, according to a source. His $250,000 workout bonus is tied to his participation for organized team activities (OTAs) and the mandatory minicamp in June.

Fantasy Tip: There still remains the chance that Peterson is traded by the Vikings before the 2015 NFL Draft next week. Stay tuned. Regardless, though, Peterson should be in consideration for the No. 1 overall fantasy pick this fall.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson has offseason bonuses

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 05:57:43 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has a $250,000 offseason bonus in his contract for participating in all mini-camps, all organized team activities and reporting to training camp on time. The first day that has implications on that bonus is May 26 when OTAs begin.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson is trying to maneuver his way out of town, but he really needs to participate in as much offseason stuff as possible after missing all but one game last season. Peterson is a mid-to-low RB1 in fantasy.

Raiders | Interest in Adrian Peterson

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 00:31:51 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is drawing interest from the Oakland Raiders.

Fantasy Tip: The Raiders have about $12 million more in cap space than the Dallas Cowboys, another team expressing interest in Peterson, have at this point. A year away from the game may make Peterson a little rusty around the edges. Still, there's no doubt Peterson would be the star in Oakland. He's still RB1 material if everything works out.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson may not work out

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 09:28:13 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said earlier this week that he's not sure if he'll participate in the team's offseason program. Minnesota is set to start their offseason workouts Monday, April 20, with a mandatory minicamp in June. Peterson can now participate in all team activities after being reinstated from the commissioner's exempt list Friday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: The Peterson situation may really get interesting now that he's been reinstated into the league. It remains to be seen if the two sides can work out their differences, or if the Vikes will trade him away. Either way, Peterson will play in 2015 and will likely be considered for the top overall fantasy selection, depending on where he's playing.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson unlikely for suspension

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 10:26:06 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is "highly unlikely" to face more suspension from the league when he's finally off the Commissioner's Exempt List, according to a source. Peterson's next concern is clearing the way for his full return to the field this fall. "Peterson wants to have a completely clean slate by the draft," NFL Network analyst Ian Rapoport said.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson should be in consideration for the top overall fantasy pick in 2015 regardless of which team he is playing for. A trade is still a possibility, though, with the Dallas Cowboys and Arizona Cardinals as the most likely destinations.

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 10:21:23 -0700

Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will meet with NFL officials at 2:00 p.m. Tuesday, April 7. The meeting will detail his compliance with terms from the league and his Texas plea deal.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson is pushing hard to be traded or cut from the Vikings. He'll most likely be in a situation where he receives the majority of the work at running back. He's a mid-to-low RB1 in that scenario.

Browns | Adrian Peterson an option for Browns?

Sat, 04 Apr 2015 11:35:43 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson could be a target for the Cleveland Browns, in the opinion of ESPN reporter Jeremy Fowler. The Browns have $30.96 million in salary cap space, so they could afford to make a trade for Peterson.

Fantasy Tip: Of course, the Vikings can choose not to trade Peterson at all, even if he wants out of Minnesota. It's still hard to gauge Peterson's value at this point as we still don't know if he'll stay with the Vikings or sign with the Dallas Cowboys or Cleveland or somewhere else. Stay tuned for any updates on Peterson, especially as the NFL Draft nears.
