Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will be a game-time decision, according to coach Leslie Frasier. Peterson is recovering from a major knee injury and the Vikings have been very cautious with him in practice. The Vikings open the season on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Fantasy Impact: This isn't a surprise but it will leave fantasy owners waiting until Sunday to make a decision about Peterson. For Week 1, Peterson should be treated more like a No. 2 back and owners clearly need to have a backup plan in place in case it's decided that he won't play. Fantasy owners should play him if they drafted him as a starter, but shouldn't expect the massive numbers he's put up in the past right away.
