Adrian Peterson breaks the century mark in Week 12 loss: Fantasy Implications

Dilip Vishwanat

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson runs for over 100 yards on Sunday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson put together some solid numbers on Sunday. In Week 12 versus the Chicago Bears, Peterson carried the ball 18 times for 108 yards. He also had 6 catches for 30 yards receiving.

In the division loss, Peterson was held out of the end zone. The Bears went on to topple the Vikings, 28-10, in a game that slipped away from Minnesota all too fast.

Fantasy Analysis: Even though his team lost, Peterson finished with 138 all-purpose yards. It is almost a guarantee that Peterson will get his touches and will be effective with them.

Peterson is still one of the best backs in the NFL and must-start in all fantasy football formats. Continue to roll with AP as a solid RB1.
