Adrian Peterson hit the 100-yard mark again in Week 8. We break down the fantasy implications.
Adrian Peterson returned to fantasy greatness last week with 153 yards, and he managed to repeat his success again on Thursday night against the Buccaneers. Peterson carried the ball 15 times for 123 yards and a touchdown, including an explosive 64-yard score in the third quarter.
The Vikings trailed for almost the entire game, so Peterson didn't get as many carries as he could have. Still, it looks like he fared well with just 16 total touches.
Fantasy Impact: Those who were worrying about AP's scoring drought clearly have nothing to worry about anymore. Peterson looks like the dominant runner he was before ACL surgery, using his power and speed to tear apart opposing defensive fronts.
