2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

ALL DAY, EVERY DAY: The Vikings led the league with 23 rushing touchdowns in 2013 – led by Adrian Peterson's 10 rushing scores. Purple Jesus averaged 90 yards per game and posted his seventh straight season of double digit touchdowns. The seventh overall pick of the 2007 NFL Draft wasn't able to approach 2,000 yards like he did in 2012 (finished with 1,266 yards in 14 games). The soon-to-be 29-year-old can hear the clock ticking on his career and rumors have surfaced that he could ask out if the Vikings don't right the ship at quarterback. Peterson is owed $13 million in 2015, but it would be unthinkable for the Vikings to entertain trade offers unless they decide to go into major rebuilding mode (unlikely as they look to build momentum for the opening of their new stadium in 2016).

Editor's note: Peterson is still a Top 3 pick in redraft (check out this FFToolbox article detailing your options in that range). All those same concerns are there, such as a lack of other proven weapons and a weak passing attack. The former Oklahoma Sooner should not fall far in any draft in any format.

Latest Update

May-24-15 Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will not show for OTAs

Adrian Peterson ironically continues to throw a childlike tantrum. He will reportedly not be showing up to OTAs and it's not clear when he'll show up at all. The team has the right to fine him, nevertheless, like a spoiled child AP continues to pout because he somehow has become the victim in his own mind. There is no word on how long this holdout may last.

Fantasy Analysis:

Apparently those whooping's Peterson talks about getting as a child didn't pay off as much as he'd like to believe. He still grew up into a spoiled little brat that has the self-delusion to believe he is the victim in the whole situation, not the battered and bruised four-year old child. Proving no point whatsoever, Peterson will report sooner than later. When he does show up, he should still be drafted as a top five back. Unless of course you are trying to win a morality award.
