Vikings | Adrian Peterson thinks he can play a while

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 12:27:31 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he believes he can play in the NFL at a high level until he's 36 or 37 years old.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson's feud with the Vikings seems to be long gone. He's itching and ready to play football again. As long as Peterson stays healthy and avoids any more off-field issues, he should end up as a high-end RB1 again. Feel free to take him if you have an early first-round pick.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson has lofty goal

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 11:23:25 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson wants to rush for 2,500 yards this season.

Fantasy Tip: That's all well and good, but 2,500 total yards will be hard for any running back to attain, much less 2,500 rushing yards alone. This goal does prove Peterson's determination, however. He's set on playing football. A determined Adrian Peterson is a dangerous Adrian Peterson. He's a candidate for the No. 1 running back this year.

Vikings | Mike Wallace impresses at camp

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 17:50:30 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace was impressive during training camp Sunday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: There will likely be an adjustment period for Wallace in his first year in Minnesota, but there should be opportunities for him to stretch the field with defenses focusing on slowing down Adrian Peterson. He should make a serviceable WR3.

Vikings | Blair Walsh receives extension

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 11:24:14 -0700

Minnesota Vikings PK Blair Walsh signed a four-year contract extension Sunday, July 26, worth $14 million. The deal includes $5.25 million in guaranteed money.

Fantasy Tip: Walsh finished last in the NFL last season with a field goal percentage of 74.3%. The Vikings should have a better offense this season, which will give Walsh more chances to put up points. Walsh could be selected in deeper leagues but should not be one of the top kickers selected.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson happy to be a Viking

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 12:13:34 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he is happy to be in Minnesota or he wouldn't have reworked his contract.

Fantasy Tip: Most people would be happy where there are if they had $20 million in guaranteed money. Money and off-field issues aside, Peterson is one of the most consistent running backs in real football and fantasy football. He's worth a first-round pick.

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 10:58:45 -0700

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson talks 2015 season

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 10:44:40 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson feels that this season is his make-or-break season. "I've got a lot to prove. I need to get back to the old me and have fun and not get too serious like I did last year." Patterson also said he believes this offseason is the best he's had so far in his career. He added that he's really been working on his route-running and feels that he's improved a lot.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson could be right about this being his make-or-break year. Charles Johnson, Mike Wallace and Kyle Rudolph will probably be QB Teddy Bridgewater's three main targets, so Patterson may have to work his way into more playing time. For now, he's a WR5 at best.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph working out

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 13:07:21 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph has implemented more stretching, flexibility and yoga into his routine this offseason after taking six weeks off when the season ended.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph dealt with an ankle injury late last season, and he's dealt with injuries in seasons past. He seems to be making a more concerted effort to stay healthy this year. If he can stay on the field, he has potential to produce TE1 numbers.
