Adrian Peterson held out of Vikings practice, fantasy value stable for Week 15

USA TODAY Sports

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (abdomen) was not practicing on Thursday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson did not practice on Thursday, a day after being limited by an abdomen injury. Peterson is coming off a 31-carry, 154-yard effort in a victory over the Chicago Bears in which he scored two touchdowns.

Peterson has missed practice numerous times this season but the abdomen injury being listed this week is new. The Vikings face the St. Louis Rams in Week 15.

Fantasy Impact: No one covering the Vikings has expressed a lot of concern about the injury but fantasy owners will have to monitor this just to make sure. Peterson has rushed for more than 100 yards in seven straight games and there is no reason to think he won't do that again against the Rams.

Peterson is a must-start No. 1 fantasy running back in all formats.
