Adrian Peterson's consistency has fantasy owners pleased

Bruce Kluckhohn-US PRESSWIRE

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson had a big rushing day in Week 7. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson had a big day on the ground on Sunday. In Week 7 versus the Arizona Cardinals, Peterson carried the ball 23 times for 153 yards and a rushing touchdown. In a hard-fought battle, Peterson helped his Vikings continue on this surprising early-season run.

Peterson has been a model of consistency for this team. He continues to show up for the Vikings, and does so with big numbers.

Fantasy Analysis: Peterson averaged almost 7.0 yards per carry against the Cardinals on Sunday. Arizona is known to have one of the league's better defensive units, but the Vikings running back tore through them. This is just further proof that it doesn't matter who Peterson is going against -- he will be a threat.

Peterson remains a must-start on a weekly basis. His consistency and ceiling as a player keeps him in the praises of fantasy owners.
