Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson says the left knee he injured in December is stronger now than it was last year. Peterson said this week (via The Pioneer Press) that the knee is better since the major surgery but that he still has a little ways to go to get where he wants to be. Peterson has rushed for 332 yards on 79 carries through four games.
Fantasy Impact: Peterson has been a marvel this season in his return from major knee surgery. Both of his touchdowns came in Week 1 but he has been a steady fantasy performer through the first four weeks. He has had at least 16 carries in every game so far and is a No. 1 fantasy running back this weekend against the Tennessee Titans.
