Adrian Peterson practices, fantasy value high for Week 10

Steven Bisig-US PRESSWIRE

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (illness) returned to practice on Friday and will play on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson practiced on Friday, a day after leaving the team's facility because he was sick. Peterson is expected to play on Sunday against the Detroit Lions.

In Week 9, Peterson ran for 182 yards and two touchdowns in a loss to Seattle. He has scored a touchdown in three straight games and has run for at least 123 yards in all three contests.

Fantasy Impact: Peterson was always expected to play on Sunday, although the Vikings may have to rely on him even more if Percy Harvin (ankle) is inactive. Peterson has been on a three-week roll for fantasy owners, while Minnesota has lost three of its last four games.

Peterson is a must-start running back in Week 10 in all formats.
