Vikings' Adrian Peterson: Held to two yards per carry against Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adrian Peterson rushed for 45 yards on 23 carries and added 13 receiving yards on two catches in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. He lost a fumble during the game.

Stymied for much of the game, Peterson lost a critical fumble in the fourth quarter that set Seattle up to take the lead. Later, on Minnesota's second-to-last drive of the game, it was Jerick McKinnon, not Peterson, on the field trying to help lead the comeback. Fumbles come with the territory for Peterson, who led the league in the unfortunate stat this year and has fumbled at least thrice in six of his eight full seasons. What doesn't normally come with the territory is a lack of production, and that's what Peterson began to show toward the end of the season. In five of his last six games of the year, including Sunday, Peterson was held to 3.5 yards per carry or less - the lone exception being a matchup against the hapless Giants defense. Peterson still managed to score three touchdowns during those games, but given that he'll be 31 next season, Peterson may be showing signs of fatigue that could result in a less dominant share of carries in 2016.

Vikings' Adrian Peterson: Active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adrian Peterson (back) is active for Sunday's wild-card contest versus the Seahawks.

Peterson will brush off a lower back injury with the Minnesota Vikings ' season on the line, but his least productive outing occurred in a Week 13 beatdown versus the Seahawks, who contained the 2015 rushing champion to eight carries for 18 yards and four receptions for six yards. A throwback performance will be required to upend the back-to-back NFC champions.

Vikings' Adrian Peterson: DNP on Wednesday with back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Adrian Peterson didn't practice Wednesday due to a lower back injury, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Peterson was held out of a portion of Sunday's win at Green Bay with a back issue, limiting him to 19 rushes for 67 yards and one touchdown. The outing was enough to ensure the third rushing title of his career, but despite playing the entire 2015 slate, only two of his seven 100-yard performances this season took place over the last seven games. Considering the bruising he's expected to take Sunday against the Seahawks, it wouldn't shock if he resides in the trainer's room rather than the practice field for most of this week.
