Adrian Peterson (groin, abdomen) 'fine', fantasy value soaring in Week 16

Jamie Squire

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is probable for Week 16. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was listed as probable for Week 16, via Tom Pelissero. The franchise back landed on the team's injury report with groin and abdomen ailments.

Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier was encouraged by Peterson's participation in practice this week, saying he should be "fine" on Sunday. In Week 16, Peterson and the Vikings will take on the Houston Texans.

Fantasy Analysis: Peterson should look to continue his remarkable comeback season against a Houston defense that has been hurting as of recent. Everything on the Vikings offense runs through Peterson, so he should get his touches and yield high production this week.

Peterson will continue to be a sure-fire RB1 for owners in the fantasy finals. Make sure he's in your lineup this week when you'll need him most.
