Minnesota Vikings running back Toby Gerhart rushed eight times for 91 yards in the Week 12 tie with the Green Bay Packers. Peterson was deemed questionable heading into the game, but carried the ball 32 times. Still, Gerhart got his opportunities and made the most of them. In the past two games, Gerhart has rushed fifteen times for 158 yards for a 10.53 yards per carry average. He is due to rip off a touchdown run as well.
Fantasy impact: Peterson didn't appear hampered by his groin injury and got a season high 32 carries, but it's easy to see Gerhart continuing to get touches with the numbers he is putting up. The Vikings have the league's 11th ranked run game and there should be room for both backs. Peterson is averaging 4.4 yards per carry. The Vikings will face the Chicago Bears in Week 13. They are giving up the seventh most fantasy points to running backs.
