Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is officially listed as questionable for the team's game on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. We break down the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is officially listed as questionable for the team's game on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Peterson was limited in practice on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, but should suit up for Sunday's game. Still, Peterson's workload is uncertain, as he is coming off a major knee injury. The Vikings could decide to play it safe and ease their star player back into actions.

Fantasy Impact: Adrian Peterson isn't likely to return to fantasy stardom until midseason. He will need some time to work his way back up to full strength. He's a risky start on Sunday in his first game back from injury, but it's never smart to bet against Peterson. With Peterson likely to play however, Toby Gerhart might not have enough of a workload to warrant a start.
