FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 15 ISSUES: ADRIAN PETERSON SAYS HE IS PLAYING SUNDAY

Well that shouldn't have surprised anyone.  Bionic man.....er...we mean Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson says he will be active for the team in returning for this Sunday's game versus the Indianapolis Colts.  Having been ruled out for the year by a majority of publications after suffering a serious knee injury in September, Peterson once again attacked rehab to put himself in position to get back onto the field.  With a cupcake matchup against a perennially weak Colts defense, Peterson all of a sudden has instant immense fantasy football appeal for those who held onto him or who picked him up off waivers as I myself did.  The question now is how much Peterson will actually play and how effective he will be.  Well considering that Matt Asiata is likely to sit with his own injury woes and Jerrick McKinnon is not even in the same ballpark as Peterson as a runner, it would not be a shock to see the latter ridden hard right out of the gate since the Vikes' playoff hopes are dire.  Throw in the soft Colts defense and Peterson is set up for a smashing debut.  Why not?
