Vikings RB Adrian Peterson rips off 48-yard touchdown in Week 4 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson carried the ball 16 times for 81 yards with a touchdown and caught 4 of 6 targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 23-20 loss at Denver Pioneers .

Peterson was bottled up until the fourth quarter when he ripped off a 48-yard touchdown up the middle on fourth down. Meanwhile, Jerrick McKinnon and Matt Asiata combined to touch the ball just two times for nine yards. The Vikings have a bye next week, before facing the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 6.

Vikings RB Adrian Peterson nets two rushing scores in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson racked up 126 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries in Sunday's home win over the Chargers. 

Peterson was held in check in the season opener at San Francisco, but in the last two games he has exploded for 318 total yards and a pair of touchdowns. He was not targeted with a pass after reeling in five balls in the first two games, but his 6.3 yards per carry and a couple of trips to the end zone more than made up for his lack of involvement in that department.

Peterson will continue to get as many touches as he can handle as the focal point of the Vikings offense, and he will be leaned upon once again as they travel to take on the Broncos in Week 4.

Vikings RB Adrian Peterson shines in win over Lions
by Rotowire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson rushed for 134 yards on 29 carries and added 58 receiving yards on two catches in Sunday's win over Detroit.

Peterson put the concerns that were raised by Week 1's 31-yard performance to rest on Sunday. Though he has entered the dreaded age 30 season and played in just his third game in Norv Turner's offense, Peterson showed that he can still be the focal point of an offense and take over a game. If that sounds like a bit of a blast from the past, you aren't mistaken.

Sunday was Peterson's first 100-yard game since Week 13 of the 2013 season.

Adrian Peterson adjusting to taking handoffs out of shotgun formation
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, who missed most of the 2014 season, took snaps in an NFL game Monday against the 49ers for the first time in a little more than a year. Unfortunately, the results were not what Peterson or the Vikings were looking for.

Peterson netted just 10 carries for 31 yards. It seems most of his struggles stemmed from taking handoffs out of the shotgun formation. After the 20-3 loss, Peterson admitted he was "a little hesitant coming out of the shotgun."

"You really just need to be more patient, allow the pulling guard to get on his block and hit it up in there," he said, per ESPN.com. "Those are the ones I felt like I was kind of hesitant on. I really wanted to hit like I was coming out of the I-formation.

"It's different, because I have to get that speed (from a shallower start). But you can be successful. The guys did a great job with it last year, and I feel like I can run in any type of formation. If we continue to work on the things we need to work on, we will improve."

Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has disappointing return to field
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

After playing in only the first game last season, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was able to take the field during Monday's 20-3 loss to the 49ers, but he failed to produce any significant stats.

The entire offense struggled during the loss and Peterson was no different. Peterson rushed for 31 yards on 10 attempts, with a long of nine yards. He caught all three of his passing targets for 27 yards. His biggest highlight was a 17-yard reception.

The 10 attempts and 31 yards were his fewest since Dec. 8, 2013.
