Vikings | Vikings want Adrian Peterson back

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 14:21:03 -0700

The Minnesota Vikings intend to bring RB Adrian Peterson back after his legal issues are resolved.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson should be avoided in FantasyScore for the foreseeable future. Matt Asiata is an excellent value this week with a price of $3,700 (7.40% of cap) in FantasyScore.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph limited

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 13:50:11 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (abdomen) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Stay tuned for the severity of his new injury, but the fact that he was limited early in the week is a good sign that he'll be fine for Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints and their atrocious defense. Rudolph ($6,600) is a decent FantasyScore play.

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 23:05:41 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson was placed on the Exempt/Commissioner's Permission list and will be out indefinitely.

Vikings | New abuse allegation for Peterson

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 17:50:06 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is accused of injuring another son while disciplining the 4-year-old, according to new allegations Monday, Sept. 15. The 4-year-old is by a different mother than the alleged victim in the Montgomery County case, in which Peterson is charged with felony injury to a child. The latest incident allegedly occurred last June, while the boy, who lives out of state, was visiting Peterson at his gated home in Texas.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson was deactivated in Week 2, and it's uncertain if the latest incident will bring more punishment for the running back. Steer clear of Peterson in FantasyScore leagues until this situation becomes clearer.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson reinstated

Mon, 15 Sep 2014 10:14:13 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson was reinstated after being deactivated in Week 2 against the New England Patriots following his arrest on a charge of causing injury to his son by disciplining him with a tree branch.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson owners will be happy to have him back in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints in the dome, a game that could feature plenty of offense. Return Peterson to your starting lineups immediately. It's unlikely he'll miss any more games this year, as his trial for the case isn't expected until next year.
