Adrian Peterson misses Vikings practice: Fantasy implications

Otto Greule Jr

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson did not practice on Thursday because he wasn't feeling well. We break down the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson did not practice on Thursday because he wasn't feeling well. Peterson, who ran for 182 yards and two touchdowns in last weekend's loss to Seattle, was at the Vikings facility but went home.

Peterson and the Vikings face the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: This is nothing to be worried about at this point. Peterson is coming off his best fantasy effort of the season and is in a rhythm thanks to three straight 100+-yard performances.

Fantasy owners should fully expect Peterson to be ready on Sunday against Detroit. Barring a serious setback, Peterson remains an elite fantasy starter at running back for Week 10 and the rest of the season.
