Fantasy Tip: This injury needs monitoring going into the weekend. If Rudolph is able to play, he could a lot of action as the Vikings try to keep up with the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: This injury is new and the extent is unknown. Keep an eye on Patterson's status going into the weekend. Assuming he plays, his price at FantasyScore of $6,800 should be worth the investment.

Minnesota Vikings WR Jerome Simpson faces a Nov. 3 arraignment for misdemeanor charges of marijuana possession, driving with an open bottle and violating limited license restrictions. Simpson was not arrested, but was cited for the alleged incidents.

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.

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.

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's next court date is Oct. 8, but it could be several months before the case would go to trial. His placement on the Exempt/Commissioner's Permission list bars him from all team activities. The team plans to keep him on the list until his child abuse case is resolved.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson should be held on to for the time being, but there's a possibility his season could be over. Matt Asiata is a good RB3 in the interim and an excellent bargain buy this week at New Orleans. He's priced at $3,700 (7.4% of your cap) on FantasyScore.

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson doesn't have the support of Minnesota governor Mark Dayton. Dayton thinks the Vikings should suspend Peterson after the team announced he's expected to play in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints. Peterson was indicted Friday, Sept. 12, on charges of negligent or reckless injury to a child, and he sat out in Week 2.
