Adrian Peterson questionable, should play for fantasy owners

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is questionable for Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is officially listed as questionable on the Friday injury report. Peterson is dealing with a groin injury that had him limited in practice Friday and out of practice on both Wednesday and Thursday. It's not the first time Peterson has been listed as questionable this season and it probably won't be the last.

Still, it's unlikely that Peterson will miss any time. He hasn't missed a game this season and though the Vikings are out of the running for the NFC North and a shot at the playoffs in general, Peterson likely wants to play. The Vikings will take on the Baltimore Ravens in Week 14.

Peterson has carried the ball 261 times for 1,208 yards and 10 touchdowns. It's a solid season, but he's currently over 700 yards behind where he was a season ago. That's unsurprising given that he almost broke the single-season rushing record last year, but it's worth noting.

Fantasy Impact: Peterson may be questionable, but he'll start against the Ravens, more than likely. Baltimore boasts the No. 6 rush defense in the NFL, allowing 100.1 rushing yards per game on average. Despite that, Peterson is not a player that sits the bench for matchup reasons. He's a must-start, as usual.
