Fantasy Tip: It could be a smoke screen, but Dimitroff said he is watching players in this year's draft and not looking at potential free agents. As with other teams, it is worth seeing if Peterson ends up anywhere or stays in Minnesota. He's still one of the elite running backs.

|Buccaneers | TB interested in Adrian Peterson?|
Thu, 23 Apr 2015 15:22:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Trade talks for Peterson could escalate as the NFL Draft nears, but it still seems that he could also very well stay in Minnesota. Wherever he lands, Peterson is a No. 1 fantasy running back candidate as long as he stays on the field.

|Cowboys | Dallas not pursuing Adrian Peterson?|
Thu, 23 Apr 2015 14:18:59 -0700
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson may not be in the Dallas Cowboys' plans after all, according to Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports. Robinson said the Cowboys have not spoken to the Vikings regarding Peterson.
Fantasy Tip: It's sounding more plausibly that the Vikings will simply end up holding on to Peterson, though trade talks could heat up leading up to the NFL Draft. As long as Peterson is on the field, he's in the running to be the top fantasy running back for the 2015 season.

|Vikings | MIN wants to keep Adrian Peterson|
Wed, 22 Apr 2015 11:13:34 -0700
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is not expected to be traded by the Vikings unless the team is overwhelmed by an offer from another team, according to a source. The Vikings are confident that time will help their relationship with Peterson. A source said a recent report that stated the Vikings are looking for a first-round pick and a starting cornerback in a trade for Peterson is not accurate, which may suggest the Vikings would be looking for even more in a trade.
Fantasy Tip: There will still be rumors about a possible Peterson trade during the offseason, but it looks like he will start the season with the Vikings at this point. Peterson likely will be a first-round pick in most fantasy drafts next season no matter where he plays.

|Jaguars | JAX not interested in Adrian Peterson|
Tue, 21 Apr 2015 21:53:19 -0700
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson might have a new home in 2015, but Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley said the team hasn't talked to Peterson despite a report the Jags were one of six teams interested in trading for him. "No, not really," Bradley said Tuesday, April 21. "Not between (general manager Dave Caldwell). A while ago, but it was just conversation, not any direction that we would go."
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners are likely hoping Peterson won't go to Jacksonville, either, as they're not exactly the most dynamic and flashy offense.

|Vikings | Six teams in mix for Adrian Peterson|
Tue, 21 Apr 2015 10:44:16 -0700
Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson remains a candidate to be traded, and a source close to the situation believes that if he isn't traded before or during the 2015 NFL Draft next week, that he will remain in Minnesota. The Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars, San Diego Chargers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in the mix for Peterson, and the source didn't include the Oakland Raiders, who had been mentioned in previous reports as a possible candidate. Peterson is under contract for three years and $43.25 million, but none of the money is guaranteed. The Vikes may be hard-pressed to receive a late first-round pick for Peterson, because of his age (30).
Fantasy Tip: A lot can still go down for Peterson and the Vikings before or during the draft, so stay tuned. The reality is that Peterson will likely be in consideration for the top overall fantasy selection this year, regardless of which team he lands with, or even if he remains in Minnesota.

|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
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.
