It is expected that Minnesota Vikings RB Toby Gerhart will leave via free agency rather than be signed by the squad. Gerhart is looking for a bigger role than just RB Adrian Peterson's backup.

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said RB Adrian Peterson (groin) is doing great in his recovery from a groin injury and should be ready for the team's minicamp in April.
Fantasy Tip: Assuming there are no setbacks during the offseason program, Peterson should be back at full speed by training camp and will continue to be the top running back in fantasy football.

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner said he expects RB Adrian Peterson to catch 50-60 passes out of the backfield in 2014.
Fantasy Tip: If those numbers play out, that would almost double Peterson's catch total from a year ago, and would obviously increase his value in point-per-reception leagues. This is something to monitor as training camp gets underway in the fall to see exactly how he is being used.

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner would like to get RB Adrian Peterson the ball in space more starting in 2014. Peterson caught 43 passes for 436 yards in 2009 with QB Brett Favre. "He's run the ball in closed-in quarters with a lot of defenders there and he makes a lot of long runs, making people miss or running over people," Turner said. "It's hard to do, but we would like to get him in space and getting the field spread a little bit better for him." Peterson has had more carries against eight-man fronts in the past two years than any running back in the league.
Fantasy Tip: Turner as the OC should do wonders for AD's point-per-reception value. He's clearly still a top-five back in any format. The solution at the quarterback position will also likely go a long way in determining just how productive Peterson and the Vikings' offense is in 2014.

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson endorsed head coach Mike Zimmer as the team's new leader. "I'm just looking forward to heading in the right direction. I feel like the organization did a great job of bringing in Zimmer and offensive coordinator Norv Turner," Peterson said. "I feel like we're putting the pieces in the right place so I'm just excited to see who all we bring in (to coach) other positions and to see which direction as far as bringing in players to help us accomplish our goal of winning a championship."

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (groin) is recovering from groin surgery and already taking part in upper body workouts. "I would probably be back working (out already if not for the surgery, but) not too much. It's not going to interfere," Peterson said. "I'm still able to do some of the upper body exercises and things like that, but kind of laying off the lower body workouts."

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is happy with the hiring of offensive coordinator Norv Turner and called him "the perfect guy to lead us and get us on the right path." The Vikings were ranked 23rd in the league in passing offense last year, and they were ranked 31st in the league in 2012. "I'll tell you, our pass offense has really struggled in the past couple years," Peterson told USA Today Sports. "I think (Turner) is going to be the perfect guy to come in and get us on the right path."

Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman once again suggested that the team won't trade RB Adrian Peterson under any circumstance. "Adrian is not going anywhere," Spielman said. "We have him under contract. He's the face of our franchise. He is a blue-chip player. And we have a new coaching staff in place, and (the Vikings are) very excited about what's coming ahead for us." Spielman expects Peterson to make a full recovery from his minor groin surgery this week.

The Minnesota Vikings announced Thursday, Jan. 23, that RB Adrian Peterson (groin) underwent successful surgery to fix the adductor muscle in his groin. He's expected to make a full recovery in roughly six weeks.
