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 leads Cardinals over Bucs

Adrian Peterson ran for 134 yards on 26 carries and found the end zone twice as the Cardinals beat Tampa Bay 38-33. His day could have been even bigger if a 41 yard run was not called back for holding on the other side of the field.

Fantasy Impact

A smashing debut for Peterson. If he's available in your league, run don't walk.
