Adrian Peterson missed practice Wednesday, resting for fantasy championship

Joe Robbins

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson did not practice on Wednesday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was held out of Wednesday's practice, via Tom Pelissero. The Vikings beat reporter claimed it was just another day of rest for the team's feature back.

Peterson has been on an incredible record-setting pace, thrashing run defenses all over the league. He has been impossible to stop and should present problems for the Houston Texans in Week 16.

Fantasy Analysis: For fantasy owners in the championship game, there is nothing to worry -- Peterson will be active and starting on Sunday. He has been one of the, if not the most dominant player in fantasy football.

He has brought consistency and high-scoring for owners that gambled on his ability to recover in 2012. That gamble has paid dividends and it will continue to. Start AP as a viable RB1 in the fantasy postseason.
