Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson rushed for 100 yards on 26 carries in the Vikings loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday. He was only targeted twice in the passing game and caught one pass for seven yards. As expected, Peterson got the bulk of the carries in the run game with Toby Gerhart only getting one carry for five yards. Peterson is the Vikings' run game and his touches should continue to reflect it.
Fantasy impact: Peterson is the bread and butter for Minnesota's run game and will continue to get plenty of opportunities in their offense. Peterson didn't find the end zone Sunday, but that shouldn't discourage fantasy owners. The Vikings are going to continue to be a run-first offense and Peterson is going to score. He is a must start RB1 in all fantasy leagues. The Vikings play the Cleveland Browns in Week 3. The Browns held Baltimore Ravens running backs Ray Rice and Bernard Pierce in check today.
