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 RULED OUT Week 14

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson (neck) is officially ruled out for Week 14.

Fantasy Impact

As expected, Peterson will miss his second straight game with a neck injury. While his injury is not expected to be season-ending, it wouldn't surprise me if they shut him down once they are officially eliminated from playoff contention, if they aren't already. Peterson could be dropped in most redraft formats with less than 12 teams.
