All-Day, beasting again (USA Today Sports Images)
As of this writing -- with the second quarter barely underway in Minnesota -- Adrian Peterson has already put 22.6 fantasy points on the board in standard scoring leagues. So his ridiculous season is getting a bit more ridiculous.
On the Vikings first two possessions, All-Day carried eight times for 74 yards, visiting the end zone twice. He's now up to 106 on 12 carries, extending his streak of 100-yard rushing efforts to seven games.
Peterson of course entered the week as the NFL's leading rusher, so it's no great surprise to see another binge. Woe unto those facing him in the fantasy playoffs in Week 14. That probably won't end well. At this point, if the Bears can simply hold AP to, say, 200 yards and three scores, that would seem like a pretty remarkable feat.
In case you're curious, Peterson began the day needing to rush for 554 yards over his final four games in order to reach 2,000 for the season -- that's an average of 138.5 yards per week. I don't think he'll quite reach 554 today, but it could be close. Keep checking the box score.
