Vikings suspend Adrian Peterson indefinitely

Sean Jensen, Twitter - [Full Article]

The Vikings have placed Adrian Peterson on the Exempt/Commissioner's Permission List, "which will require that Adrian remain away from all team activities while allowing him to take care of his personal situation until the legal proceedings are resolved."

Fantasy Impact: 

The team was under pressure from political and business leaders to suspend Peterson after its decision to activate him for Week 3. It looks like he will be away from the team until his legal issues are resolved. We don't expect him to play again for the Vikings this season. Matt Asiata is the clear RB1, though the team may try to get Jerick McKinnon more involved as the season progresses. Asiata out-touched McKinnon 18 to 4 in Week 2. We were expecting more rushes from Cordarrelle Patterson in Week 2, but that didn't transpire. Asiata is the player to target on waivers if he is still available. In deeper leagues, McKinnon is worth a stash as he is the more explosive player.
