Vikings RB Adrian Peterson, WR Jerome Simpson probable for Sunday

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson @AdrianPeterson will tell you that he is not 100 percent. His left ankle has been giving him problems for a few weeks, and he tweaked the ankle during the team's Week 6 loss to the Redskins. He also didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday this week. But Peterson put in a full practice Friday and is listed as probable for Sunday's game versus the Cardinals. Also listed as probable is wide receiver Jerome Simpson @rome081, who put in a full week of practice. He missed the past two games due to a back issue that caused weakness and numbness in one of his legs.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Vikings are trying to give Peterson extra rest as they play Thursday against the Bucs in Week 8. But he should be good to go against the Cardinals, so get him into your lineup. Simpson is not a great option, especially if he finds himself being guarded by Patrick Peterson. But Simpson is a guy to keep an eye on because of his big-play ability.
