Adrian Peterson explodes for 200 yards in Week 13: Fantasy Implications

Joe Robbins

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson was on a tear on Sunday. We breakdown the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson had a tremendous day on the ground in Week 13. On Sunday, the Vikings took on the Green Bay Packers, where AP ran wild for 210 yards and a touchdown.

This was incredibly impressive, considering Peterson only carried the ball 21 times. Unfortunately for the Vikings' franchise back, the team fell to Aaron Rodgers and the Pack.

Fantasy Analysis: Heading into this year's fantasy season, a lot of people were irked by Peterson's knee. But he's proved the doubters wrong, having perhaps his best year as a pro.

The Vikings have been able to lean on Peterson, and despite his league-wide recognition, he remains a conundrum for opposing defenses. Continue to start Adrian Peterson each and every week. He should be a big-time performer in the fantasy postseason.
