Adrian Peterson Fantasy Analysis

  • Peterson will get "as much as he can take"
    Vikings HC Mike Zimmer made it clear that he won't be gun shy about riding RB Adrian Peterson this season.  "As much as he can take, and as much as he can handle in all the things that we're doing," Zimmer said of AP's workload. "Obviously, we're going to have to spell him at times like you do a lot of guys. But we get down on the goal line, and we're probably not pulling him out, you know? He's our best player, and we're going to continue to use him."  Peterson averaged 271 carries across his first 7 seasons and could hit that mark in 2015.  He's also likely to see an increased receiving role under OC Norv Turner.  That type of workload would be a concern for any other 30-year-old RB, but Peterson doesn't follow normal rules.  He has a shot to lead all RBs in fantasy points this season.

  • Peterson restructures contract
    The Vikings and RB Adrian Peterson have agreed to a restructured contract.  It's officially a 3-year, $44 million deal -- $.75 million less than AP was scheduled to make over the next 3 years on his old deal.  But the new contract guarantees Peterson $11 million this season.  There are no guarantees beyond that, though.  AP now has a $5 million roster bonus due next March.  The takeaway: Peterson is getting paid a ton this season and will be a workhorse, but the Vikings aren't committed to him beyond 2015. It's plenty possible that the franchise moves on next offseason and hands the reins to RB Jerick McKinnon. Full Story

  • Peterson to see more 3rd-down work
    Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is expected to see more 3rd-down work in OC Norv Turner's offense, according to Master Tesfatsion.  If there's 1 area in which AP hasn't dominated, it's in the passing game.  He's reached 40 catches just twice and scored just 5 career receiving TDs.  But he could set new personal bests in 2015.  Turner's offense has produced a 50-catch RB in 10 of 24 seasons.  That's a number Peterson could reach in 2015.

  • McKinnon to serve as "occasional 3rd-down back"
    Vikings insider Master Tesfatsion believes RB Jerick McKinnon's role this season will be as an "occasional 3rd-down back."  Doesn't sound like he'll be seeing a whole lot of action.  Vensel confirms that RB Adrian Peterson is set to receive the "majority" of the carries.  McKinnon will need an AP injury to be a reliable fantasy play in 2015.  The freak athlete is still worth stashing in all keeper and dynasty leagues.
