Adrian Peterson rushed for 84 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Jacksonville Jaguars. Percy Harvin was the Vikings' next leading rusher with five carries for 20 yards. Toby Gerhart had 18 yards on six carries.
Analysis: Those who got Adrian Peterson on the cheap in fantasy drafts this year have to be feeling very good about themselves right about now. Still, it should be noted that he had 17 carries, which is a fair amount but not quite at workhorse levels. The goal-line work is very encouraging, but that's predicated on the Vikings getting near the end zone on a weekly basis. Peterson is at worst a solid RB2, but bear in mind that big outings like Sunday may not happen consistently.
