There are few better narratives in Week 1 than Peterson facing off against the Vikings in Minnesota. Given his comments, Peterson will undoubtedly be motivated to be at his best, and it's likely that the Saints will try to get him some goal-line work in an effort to get a touchdown. While it remains to be seen how much Peterson has left in the tank or the exact breakdown of the workload in the New Orleans backfield, the narrative alone, and the likelihood that Peterson scores a touchdown, makes him a fine play in the first game of the season.

Adrian Peterson gains a modest 37 yards

Adrian Peterson carried the ball nine times for 33 yards and caught two-of-two targets for four yards in the New Orleans Saints Week 3 win over the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson couldn't find much running room in this game. He checked in to the game in different situations, so it seems as if head coach Sean Payton is still struggling to find Peterson a role in the offense. Keep Peterson stashed on your bench until he finds his groove in the offense, or better yet, use his name "equity" to trade for a better alternative for your RB3/4.
