Adrian Peterson is expected to continue shining in a comeback from ACL surgery. We break down the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has had an incredible comeback from a torn ACL. Through four games, Peterson has 332 rushing yards and two TDs, adding 10 receptions for 64 yards. He faces the Tennessee Titans in Week 5, who rank 26th in the league in rushing yards allowed.

Fantasy Impact: Peterson isn't all the way back yet -- his 4.2 YPC are down from a career 4.7 -- but he said earlier this week that his knee has never felt better. He's been a good payoff for fantasy owners who were willing to risk drafting him. The Titans have been gashed by the running game, allowing 136.5 rushing yards per game. Peterson is an easy RB1 play going forward.
