Analysis: This workload isn't going to make Peterson happy. This situation could blow up sooner rather than later.
Sep. 17, 2017 2:02 PM PT3:02 PM MT4:02 PM CT5:02 PM ET21:02 GMT5:02 2:02 PM MST4:02 PM EST4:02 PM CT1:02 UAE (+1)17:02 ETNaN:� - Adrian Peterson ran for 26 yards on eight carries Sunday in the New Orleans Saints' 36-20 loss to the New England Patriots.
Analysis: With the Saints' backfield situation a mess, Peterson really can't be trusted as a fantasy starter.
Sep. 11, 2017 7:25 PM PT8:25 PM MT9:25 PM CT10:25 PM ET2:25 GMT10:25 7:25 PM MST9:25 PM EST9:25 PM CT6:25 UAE (+1)22:25 ETNaN:� - Adrian Peterson ran for 18 yards on six carries Monday in the New Orleans Saints' 29-19 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
Analysis: Peterson's return to Minnesota wasn't very enjoyable as he failed to generate much of anything against his former team. He had a 9-yaed run on his first carry of the night, but did very little thereafter. This game proved that Peterson won't be much of a factor if the Saints are behind, and that could be the case more often than not if their defense doesn't show vast improvement from the opener.

Analysis: Peterson's carries were his first in the preseason since 2011.

Analysis: Peterson has spent his entire 10-year NFL career with the Minnesota Vikings, surpassing 1,000 yards rushing in a season seven times and 2,000 yards once. However, he played in only three games last season before being sidelined by a knee injury.
Apr. 2, 2017 2:44 PM PT3:44 PM MT4:44 PM CT5:44 PM ET21:44 GMT5:44 2:44 PM MST4:44 PM EST4:44 PM CT1:44 UAE (+1)17:44 ETNaN:� - Peterson is scheduled to meet with the New England Patriots on Monday, ESPN reports.
Analysis: Peterson became an unrestricted free agent when the Vikings did not exercise his 2017 option on Feb. 28. Peterson missed almost all of last season with a right knee injury.
Mar. 16, 2017 1:48 PM PT2:48 PM MT3:48 PM CT4:48 PM ET20:48 GMT4:48 1:48 PM MST3:48 PM EST2:48 PM CT0:48 UAE (+1)16:48 ETNaN:� - Peterson's time with the Vikings is over. Minnesota general manager Rick Spielman confirmed so on Thursday.
Analysis: The Vikings signed former Oakland running back Latavius Murray early Thursday after a long night of negotiations. Then Spielman acknowledged in the afternoon he had spoken with Peterson to wish him well, clarifying that the franchise's all-time leading rusher will be playing elsewhere in 2017. The Vikings declined their $18 million option on his contract for 2017 to make him a free agent.
Feb. 28, 2017 8:29 AM PT9:29 AM MT10:29 AM CT11:29 AM ET16:29 GMT0:29 9:29 AM MST11:29 AM EST10:29 AM CT20:29 UAE11:29 ETNaN:� - Peterson, Minnesota's all-time leading rusher, will be an unrestricted free agent when the market opens next week.
Analysis: As expected, the Vikings declined to exercise their option for next season on Peterson's contract. Peterson was scheduled to make $18 million in 2017, what would have been an unwieldly hit to their salary cap. General manager Rick Spielman says the team will "continue to have conversations" with Peterson's representatives about the potential of re-signing the soon-to-be 32-year-old Peterson.
