Adrian Peterson is Playing This Week For You

While the Vikings won’t make it, Peterson knows how important your fantasy playoffs are.

Adrian Peterson is Playing This Week For You

In this article…

The Vikings are 2-11. So why would Adrian Peterson rush back from his ankle injury?

“It’s very important, especially for my fantasy team owners,” Peterson said Thursday, according to Mark Craig of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.  “They’ve been giving me a hard time.”

Peterson was smiling when he said that, something his fantasy owners likely haven’t been doing lately.  And Peterson said that he has been hearing from his fantasy owners on Twitter.

“They’ll say, ‘Will you please [play]. I’ll send my wife down to visit you,’” Peterson said.  “Sometimes, it’s like, wow.  Some of the things I read on there is crazy.”

Last week, Peterson said he was 70 percent.  This week, he says he’s at 85 percent.  But he’s no longer limping, and he has practiced on a limited basis each of the last two days.

That's very generous of him, assuming you didn't already get eliminated from the playoffs because of his injury.
