The Vikings deactivated Peterson shortly after he was indicted in Texas


RB Fantasy News-

After being indicted on child abuse charges in Texas, the Minnesota Vikings pulled the plug on Adrian Peterson for the team’s Week 2 home game against the visiting Patriots.  He is no longer a leading RB fantasy football option.
In the wake of the Ray Rice domestic abuse scandal, the NFL is dealing with one of the darkest and most embarrassing weeks in league history.
With A-P out, Matt Asiata will draw the start against New England with rookie Jerick McKinnon playing the role of backup.  Both could be a decent fantasy RB pickup.
There is currently no time table for Peterson's return to football. Peterson turned himself into the authorities in Montgomery County Texas where he was processed and released about a half hour later.
