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: 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.

Minnesota Vikings LB Anthony Barr (knee), DE Scott Crichton (hip), DE Everson Griffen (neck), CB Xavier Rhodes (ankle) all fully practiced and was probable. OT Mike Harris (ankle) and CB Captain Munnerlyn (non-injury) both were limited and are probable. WR Jarius Wright (hamstring) fully participated and is questionable. DT Sharrif Floyd (knee) did not participate and is questionable.

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.

Fantasy Tip: We'll have to wait and see what Asiata's status is for Week 12 against the Green Bay Packers, but it doesn't look good. Ignore him at FantasyScore. Jerick McKinnon ($5,400) should continue to take the lead-back duties, but newly-signed Ben Tate ($4,900) could have a pretty significant role in his team debut if Asiata is out. Tate makes for an interesting flex option, especially if he sees goal-line work.

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he'll gladly return this season if he wins the appeal of his indefinite suspension. If he loses his appeal and has to sit out the rest of this season, he's not certain he'll return with the Vikings. He has given a lot of thought to the idea of getting a fresh start somewhere else.
Fantasy Tip: Peterson should be owned until his appeal is heard, which is expected to occur soon.

Minnesota Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd (knee) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 20. LB Anthony Barr (knee), OT Michael X. Harris (ankle) and WR Jarius Wright (hamstring) were limited. DEs Scott Crichton (hip) and Everson Griffen (neck) and CB Xavier Rhodes (ankle) were full participants.

Fantasy Tip: Offensive coordinator has already said McKinnon will keep his starting role even with RB Ben Tate now in town. The risk with McKinnon and all the Minnesota Vikings running backs, and why they're risky plays this week, is that they'll have to pass a lot if they fall behind to the Green Bay Packers.
Thu, 20 Nov 2014 11:36:39 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Owners will need to see if he is able to do anything during practice Friday, Nov. 21. Jennings costs $4,300 on FantasyScore, but owners should consider spending a little more on a better option.
