Vikings cautiously optimistic RB Adrian Peterson will play

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson @AdrianPeterson is not a lock to play in Week 12. Head coach Leslie Frazier told reporters he is "cautiously optimistic" he will play at Green Bay. Peterson battled a groin injury last week during the practice week and missed a couple practices then as well. He did not practice Wednesday. If he does not play, RB Toby Gerhart will start.

Fantasy Analysis:

Peterson didn't look that great last week, rushing for just 65 yards on 21 carries. This is the type of situation that rarely finds a resolution before game-time. Be prepared on Sunday by adding Gerhart if need be. The former Stanford back won't post huge numbers, but he's reliable and can contribute production on all three downs. Peterson is a must-start if he's active.
