Fantasy Tip: The severity of Patterson's injuries are not clear, but nagging injuries have hampered him all season. At the tail end of the 2013 season, he showed some signs of brilliance, but lower-body injuries have kept him from hitting his highest gear for most of this season. FantasyScore owners should avoid him going forward until he can prove his health in one full game.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson has led the Vikings in receiving yardage in each of the past two games, emerging as a sleeper WR2 or flex play in FantasyScore leagues, especially at a very low salary.

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (rib) had four receptions for 38 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 game against the Green Bay Packers, his former team. It his first score in four games against his old team. He has nine total catches for 107 yards in the four games against the Packers.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings entered the game as questionable with a rib injury, and it doesn't appear he was affected by the injury. He has three or more receptions in five of his past six games, and eight of his 11 outings this season. He is a decent low-end WR2 or flex option in FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson's chances to return this season appear slim, but he's still valuable enough to be a game-changer if he's reinstated. Keep him stashed.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings likely will be in the starting lineup but has not produced great numbers this season. He has a price tag of $4,300 on FantasyScore, but owners should consider using other options.

Fantasy Tip: Tate ($4,900; 9.8% of your cap) probably won't have enough of a role this week to be a factor on FantasyScore. It's pretty hard to sign with a team and have a big role at running back the same week.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph is slowly getting eased back in to game action, and should not be considered in FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon will get the start this week, but there is risk here, especially f the Vikings fall behind early and have to throw the ball a lot. There are probably better options available to you in FantasyScore this week.

Fantasy Tip: With Asiata out, Jerick McKinnon will likely continue to get most of the work, and will cost $5,400 in FantasyScore. Ben Tate could also see carries , and will cost $4,900 in FantasyScore.

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's appeal hearing is scheduled to occur Dec. 2, and commissioner Roger Goodell will not be in charge of the hearing. Former NFL employee Harold Henderson will be the hearing officer.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will know more about Peterson's status after a decision is made on his appeal. Owners in deeper leagues should continue to hold onto Peterson if they have the roster space.
