Adrian Peterson expected to play this week

Minneapolis Star Tribune - [Full Article]

It’s tough to assess a Vikings offense built around RB Adrian Peterson when Adrian Peterson isn’t around said offense.

That will change in the first half of Sunday’s nationally televised preseason game against the reigning NFC champion 49ers in San Francisco.

Fantasy Impact: 

HC Leslie Frazier wouldn’t say how long Peterson will play in the game, according to the story, but it looks like the first half - at the most - even though it's typical starters play into the third quarter in preseason week 3. Due to see a heavy workload in 2013, the Vikings are just taking it easy with the consensus number-one pick in most fantasy drafts.
