2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)

Last updated on Jun-23-2014 by Rob Warner

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.
