Jamie Squire

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is officially listed as probable for the team's game on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. We break down the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is officially listed as probable for the team's game on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. Peterson has been dealing with an ankle injury. He missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but practiced in full on Friday and is expected to play.

Peterson hasn't scored a touchdown since a Week 1 match against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He has rushed for 499 yards on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Adrian Peterson has disappointed fantasy owners in recent weeks after a fast start to the season. He is slowly getting back to full strength, recovering first from last year's season-ending knee injury and now this ankle ailment.

Peterson has been running well, however, and that should continue against the Arizona Cardinals. Keep starting him with confidence, and Peterson will break through sooner or later.
