Parton Distribution Functions (PDFs) are a crucial input at the LHC , their uncertainty often being the limiting factor in the accuracy of theoretical predictions. At the same time the LHC is delivering a number of precise measurements that have the potential to greatly constrain these functions. I present the new NNPDF3 .1 set of parton distributions, which includes a significant portion of new data from LHC , including Z pT and top differential distributions. I will show the impact of new data on PDFs and describe some phenomenological implications. I will finally mention the theoretical and statistical challenges induced by the accuracy of the new LHC data.
