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 to be placed on Injured Reserve

Adrian Peterson (neck) will be placed on Injured Reserve this week, ending his 2017 season.

Fantasy Impact

Peterson had a brief resurgence with the Cardinals, but that was more about an increase in volume than effectiveness. He reportedly plans to play in 2018, but likely won't be much of a fantasy factor unless he lands in the absolutely ideal situation.
