Adrian Peterson feels he's on track for Week 1 - [Full Article]

When asked if Week 1 was a reasonable goal, Vikings RB Adrian Peterson had this to say: "Yeah, I feel like it's realistic. That's my goal, to be back by the first game. As of right now, I feel like I'm heading in the right direction to meet that."

Fantasy Impact: 

If he were to play in Week 1, he would only be about 9 months removed from ACL surgery. No RB has returned to form after tearing his ACL in that timeframe, so we're skeptical but less so than a few weeks ago. Those owners who decide to roll the dice on Peterson will need to be sure to draft Toby Gerhart as a handcuff. If he does play, don't expect the usual AP in Week 1 -- he's going to have to work his way back to form.
