Here are some of the Vikings' fantasy football options this week:
QB Christian Ponder had his best fantasy game of the year last week, throwing for 381 yards, three TDs and two interceptions. However, he remains a No. 2 fantasy QB in larger leagues. His continued growth benefits the receiver's value.
RB Adrian Peterson says the decision to return to the Vikings this weekend (or later) is his to make but he did go through limited practice and if he can do what he needs to do Friday he could play. Look for updates, but he'll probably be a game-day decision.
RB Toby Gerhart will go back to No. 2 status but you don't waive him yet, as there's a chance Peterson might not play giving Gerhart fantasy value for one more week.
WR Percy Harvin has had some kind of illness but it didn't affect him last week (8-156-2 receiving and 5-19-0 rushing). He's peaking at the right time and showing his explosiveness.
TE Visanthe Shiancoe (hand) has been limited in practice this week but regardless if he plays or not, he no longer has fantasy value.
