Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is listed as questionable for Week 1. We break down the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is listed as questionable for Sunday's game with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Peterson, who is trying to return from a major knee injury, is expected to be a game-time decision. Vikings coaches have said this week that they expect Peterson to be available for Week 1.

Fantasy Impact: Peterson being listed as questionable is not a surprise, as fantasy owners by now should be prepared for the fact that this may go right up to kickoff on Sunday. Peterson wants to play but it's not yet clear how effective he will be because of all the precautions that have been taken by the Vikings. If healthy, Peterson is, at best, a No. 3 running back or flex play.
