Adrian Peterson

New Orleans Saints

Adran Peterson - all hail Purple Jesus

Adrian Peterson is consistently one of the best running backs in football, and one of the last true bell cows in the game.  Peterson has always had the amazing ability to break off a huge run and has not had a season with a run of less than 54 yards.  Peterson has been the most consistent running back in the game, since his arrival in 2007.

Adrian Peterson has had the benefit of playing for the Minnesota Vikings, a team that plays indoors and does not have strong play from the quarterback position.  Peterson has had Tarvaris Jackson, Kelly Holcomb, Brooks Bollinger, Gus Freotte, Joe Webb, an old Bret Favre, a nearly as old (but much worse) Donovan McNabb and Christian Ponder as his quarterbacks.  The best quarterback he has had was Brett Favre at the end of his career, although that did not help Peterson out in the stat department as much as you would think.

When Favre arrived in Minnesota in 2009, Peterson was coming off a season where he had 1,885 yards from scrimmage (1,760 rushing yards), with 10 TD.  Having stronger play at the quarterback position made the Vikings a better team that was able to move the ball downfield more consistently, which played into Peterson’s hands, as he is the best red-zone back in the game.  Peterson took advantage that first season with Favre and scored a career best 18 touchdowns.  Peterson also had a career best with 43 receptions on the season for 436 yards.  During this time, Peterson also saw his yards per carry average drop to the lowest point in his career at 4.4 yards per carry.  That is pretty amazing, when 4.4 YPC is the lowest in your career, as there are many other running backs that never reach that mark.

Peterson had set the bar so high for himself at the onset of his career, that when his stats took a slight dip there were many in the media who were sure his best days were behind him, especially after tearing up his knee toward the end of the 2011 season.  During that season Peterson had seen his rushing yards per game drop to the lowest point in his career, at 80.8 and his yards from scrimmage per game was 92.42, the only time in his career where that stat was south of 100 yards per game.  The funny thing is, Peterson still had 13 touchdowns on that season, in only 12 games played.  In fact, Peterson has scored at least 10 touchdowns in every season of his career, which is freakish.  What Peterson did in 2012 was simply astounding.

Coming off of a blown out knee Peterson went ballistic in 2012, rushing for 2,097 yards and accumulating 2,314 yards from scrimmage with 13 touchdowns. Peterson had 10 games in which he rushed for over 100 yards, including 8 games in a row where he also had 2 games in which he rushed for over 200 yards and finished the season another where he rushed for 199 yards…SICK!!!

Peterson is that rare player that has had greatness over an extended period of time.  He is still in prime condition to continue to be a dominant back for years to come.  Peterson is the rare running back in fantasy football that can be taken as the #1 overall pick, and while he might not be the top scorer at the end of the season, he will still be a consistent scorer that wins you weeks, and have been the safest #1 overall pick since 2008, even in down years.

Adrian Peterson is an elite talent who posted 37 100-yard rushing games in his first 89 games played.  For his career he has averaged 315 carries for 1,591 yards, which is a 5.1 yards per carry average, and 14.4 touchdowns per season, based on 16 games.  If you add in his receiving numbers he has averaged 1,865 yards from scrimmage per season.  There will be a time when Adrian Peterson does slow down and becomes a normal running back, but that time still seems very far ahead in the future.

2012 Pros and Cons

(+) From a fantasy standpoint, he could fall into RB2 territory (second- or third-round pick) due to his injury. He’d be a HIGH value pick at that point

(+) In a video that surfaced a few weeks ago, AP28 was already faster than the other skilled position players and even beat Percy Harvin in a foot race

(+) One of the only true every down backs in the NFL

(+) Had 12 TDs in 12 games last year and has never had less than 10 in a season

(+) Purple Jesus has been good for nearly a TD per game over his five-year career (67 TDs in 73 games)

(–) First year off of an ACL injury takes time to heal - don't expect that same AP explosiveness

(–) There is always going to be a mentality issue for any athlete coming off of a major injury

(–) There are still lots of question marks to the Vikings passing attack, which could keep defenses stacked against the run

(–) Toby Gerhart did well in Peterson’s absence and could push for more carries this season because of it (and APs injury situation)

(–) In his last three regular seasons, Purple Jesus has only ran for 11 100-yard games (3 in ’09, 5 in ’10, 3 in ’11)

2009 Review

adrian peterson collage

The year Adrian Peterson had in 2009 was a strange one to say the least.  The Vikings seemed to under-utilize him throughout the year, even though they claimed they wanted to keep Brett Favre as fresh as they could.  But of course, everyone knows the GM and coach of the Vikings is Favre. Also, Peterson fumbled more times than Petey from Remember the Titans.

However, there's no denying that his overall stats are Top-3 numbers for sure, but still, fantasy owners were expecting more from the man they call Purple Jesus.  It’s tough to be upset with nearly 1,400 yards rushing, another 400 receiving, and 18 overall touchdowns, but when you’re touted as the best running back in the game, you don’t expect a 5’11”, 200 lb. sophomore speedster (CJ2K) to beat you out in fantasy points.  When all was said and done, regardless of the immense expectations, AP28 still put up the most fantasy points he’s had in his career and looked like he should have no problem improving on those in the future.

2010 Fantasy Outlook

The best news all offseason for Peterson and his fantasy owners was Chester Taylor signing with Da Bears. Taylor was used relatively often in 2009, but this means that Vikings ownership fully believes in AP. Expect ‘All Day’ Peterson to come back with a vengeance in 2010.  Purple Jesus is at his best when faced with a challenge, when standing toe-to-toe with adversity; and plenty of people are questioning him right now.  Most of those questions range from his fumble-itis to his lack of 100-yard games this past year, to Old Man Favre in pressure situations to his own linemen questioning his ability to follow instructions.  AP certainly looks in line for a telltale year in 2010, but the smart bet is on Purple Jesus rising to the challenge.  When faced with the “injury-prone” tag put on him before the 2007 draft, here was his reaction when asked about it:

"I'm a player who is coming in with the determination to turn a team around. I want to help my team get to the playoffs, win… and run wild. I want to bring people to the stands. I want people to come to the game to see what I can do next. Things like that can change the whole attitude of an organization. I want to win." (Robinson, Jon (2007-05-04) "Adrian Peterson Interview". IGN. http://sports.ign.com/articles/785/785800p1.html.

See what we mean?


~ Chester Taylor is gone, so more of the offensive responsibility will lie on his shoulders, regardless of Toby Gerhart's arrival

~ The offensive line is really good and wants to see him succeed

~ After a crucial fumble in the playoff loss against the Saints, he’ll be angry… and hungry

~ The coaches surely worked with him on his fumbling problem over the summer

~ Likewise, they will also work on his patience in hitting holes, something his offensive linemen complained about last year

~ The million dollar escalators in his contract for things like 2,000 yards or 20 TDs, or the $250,000 bonus for being named the NFL MVP are incentive enough for anybody

Adrian signed a six-year, $40.5 million rookie contract back in July of '07.  The deal contained $17 million guaranteed, including a $1.555 million roster bonus in the second year.  Also available is an annual NFL MVP (or NFL ROY in 2007) incentive of $250,000 and a $1 million annual escalator for 20 rushing TDs.  He already added $2.5 million to his 2010 salary by rushing for over 1,000 yards in his first two seasons.  Should Peterson rush for 2,000 yards or 20 touchdowns, he adds $1 million each time he does to his 2011 salary.  There is no risk for holdout.

2010 - $3.64 million (+ $2.8 million roster bonus)

2011 - $7.72 million

2012 - $895,000 (voidable)

Toby Gerhart is a mandatory handcuff to AP, and don't wait until the last few rounds, either.  Once you have your starting QB, 2-3 RBs, and 3-4 receivers, start thinking about locking down Gerhart.  He can be very productive behind this O-Line if AP goes down.

Injury Report


Peterson has missed two games in his career and played in all 16 in '08. We'll take a hobbled stud who has the cujones to play through pain over some average schmo that never goes down, but won't bring the potential of 150 and two scores no matter the opponent. The injury concerns revolving around AP are blown too far out of proportion.

Mardi Gras All Day

Pyro's take: Adrian 'All Day' Peterson will be taking his talents to Hollygrove. He has agreed in terms to a 2 year deal. The deal will have Peterson making $500k more than Ingram.

Fantasy Goo: The Saints ran a league high 69.1 plays per game in 2016, 46% of which were ran with Brees under center where Peterson averages only 3.7 YPC in shotgun. Saints run on 37% of their plays. A clean 50/50 RB split would leave Ingram and Peterson each with 185 rushing plays in I formations.

'All Day' Peterson Now A Free Agent

Pyro's take: The Minnesota Vikings have released that they will not pick up AP's option for the 2017-2018 season. AP can return to the Vikings on a newly structured deal, however, expect him to test the open market.

Fantasy Goo: Earlier speculation tied AP most closely to the Giants. AP will be the most polarizing free agent this off season.

To Risk or Not to Risk?

Pyro's take: According to a recent Jay Glazer report, the Vikings will evaluate AP after 20 plays to either "let her rip or rotate in".

Fantasy Goo: You have to weigh your options carefully. They say dance with the girl you brought to the dance. While AP certainly did not get you here, he is a hard one not to plug in. If you need a steady, safe floor, look elsewhere. If you need points, then it is hard to surpass the ceiling 'AllDay' provides. Personally, I think when they get in the RedZone, they will give it to him. Heck Asiata has 4 TDs in the last 5 games.

Pyro's take: Peterson will officially be active today.

Star Watch - Adrian Peterson

Pyro's take: Peterson is back in limited practices. His week 15 status is uncertain.

Fantasy Goo: Peterson said that he will not play unless the Vikings are in playoff contention. The fact that he's back so soon gives them a better chance. He must be owned in all leagues.

AP Might Be Back for Fantasy Playoffs

Pyro's take: The Vikings can technicaly bring him back in Week 11. Reports have surfaced about a target date of week 14 however, the first round of the fantasy playoffs.

Fantasy Goo: Lord knows there is no certainty in this fantasy world we know and love, but if you have the room, that is not a bad stash.

Adrian Peterson To Have Surgery To Repair Torn Meniscus Could be Out For Multiple Weeks

Adrian Peterson

Pyro's take: Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has decided to undergo knee surgery for his torn meniscus and will reportedly miss multiple weeks.

Fantasy Goo: It is unclear how many weeks he will miss, but he is likely out until at least halfway through the regular season. In his absence, the team will turn to Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata to share the backfield. McKinnon offers the most upside in PPR leagues, but Asiata figures to see more goal line work and early downs, making this a true committee approach. Both are worth rostering in all leagues until there is some clarity on their roles.

Not Today, All Day


Pyro's take: Adrian Peterson suffered torn meniscus in his right knee versus the Green Bay Packers Sunday night. The diagnosis was confirmed by Coach Zimmer today, though his recovery timeline is undefined at this time.

Fantasy goo: Despite leading the league in rushing in 2015, Peterson had been absolutely terrible through the first two games of 2016, averaging only 1.6 yards/attempt. The Minnesota offensive line is creating almost no room to run, so the utility of Matt Asiata and/or Jerick McKinnon is questionable.

Hut Hut Hike… Hand-Off

Pyro's take: ‏@Andrew_Krammer Shaun Hill leading QB drills today with Sam Bradford in tow. #Vikings

Fantasy Goo: Shaun Hill will be very busy week one. If you call handing the ball to AP, All Day then Shaun Hill will be sweating profusely. Peterson does not play in preseason games anymore and will be fresh for week 1. The Vikings passing attack should be limited until Sam Bradford takes over and becomes comfortable. Peterson should be in for high volume this week. Adrian should be a dump off target for Hill giving PPR appeal to Peterson as well.

Adrian Peterson Nursing A Strained Hammy In Vikings Camp Could Lead To More Touches For Jerrick McKinnon

Minnesota Vikings

Pyro's take: Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer told ESPN that RB Adrian Peterson (hamstring) "is fine" and will "be alright" following his minor hamstring strain sustained during training camp. Jerick McKinnon received "extra work" as a result of Peterson's absence.

Fantasy Goo: Adrian Peterson gave the Vikings a slight scare after tweaking his hamstring in training camp. As expected, he will be "fine" and return to football activities in the coming days. In the upcoming fantasy football campaign, Jerick McKinnon is an interesting name to target as he is projected as Peterson's primary handcuff. Peterson is aging and injuries could follow which translates to McKinnon seeing an increase in playing time in 2016.

2016 Could Be Adrian Petersons Last In Minnesota

Charley Walters

Pyro's take: Charley Walters of the Pioneer Press is suggesting that 2016 could be RB Adrian Peterson's final season with the Minnesota Vikings due to his astronomical (for running backs) $18 million contract value for the 2017 campaign.

Fantasy Goo: Although this report is pure skepticism, it garners debate as the running back position is tremendously undervalued in today's NFL. Adrian Peterson will receive $12 million in 2016 while his contract value skyrockets up to a whopping $18 million in 2017 for a rusher who will turn 32-years-old in March. In the upcoming fantasy football campaign, Peterson will likely finish in the top 10 in scoring if he remains healthy, but it could be his last big year production-wise in the league with age, as well as the wear and tear on his body, creeps up on the future Hall of Famer. Jerick McKinnon should be selected as Peterson's handcuff as he could see an increase in touches if the Vikings begin to prepare for the future.

Wondering how long Peterson can keep chugging along

We can’t tell you precisely without knowing more about what’s in Peterson’s mind and in his knees.

Pyro's take: We can’t tell you precisely without knowing more about what’s in Peterson’s mind and in his knees. But our best guess, based on the career arcs of those who have gone before him, is he’ll be up against the wall in the next two or three years. Peterson has more going for him than most — a year off from wear-and-tear, a freakish ability to come back stronger from injuries and lofty goals that don’t suggest someone coasting to the finish. He said last year he thinks he could play into his late 30s, or even to 40.

Fantasy Goo: We shall see if Adrian Peterson can be the Nolan Ryan of running backs. Anyone ever betting against Adrian has always lost, so far. Adrian bulldozed his way to 1,485 yards and a 4.5 yard per carry average in 2015. That sure does not sound like the end of the road. I, myself, need to rethink my placement in my tiers as he needs to go UP in my rankings. There really is nothing we can say that everyone already does not know about the true “freakish” Peterson being a complete devastator on the field for 2016 and for some time beyond.

Pyro's take: AP has 13 career games against Chicago. The kid has 14 TDs and averages 113 yards per game. Ratliff, Sutton, McPhee, McManis, Porter all Questionable & Callahan Doubtful. McPhee is a monster and he and Sutton make up 2 of their starting front 7. Loving AP in Week 15.

Adrian Peterson should continue to have success against the Packers


Pyro's take: Adrian Peterson has had more success against the Packers than any team in his career, rushing for 1,648 yards and 11 touchdowns in 14 games. So facing the league’s 24th-ranked run defense Sunday should set up nicely for Peterson and an offense built around a power running game with multiple tight end sets. The running back said he’s excited to face the Packers for the first time since he ran for 146 yards against them in 2013, and he should get the ball plenty Sunday as the Vikings try to establish the run with temperatures in the 30s at TCF Bank Stadium. -- Ben Goessling

The Vikings are now 7-2 and Adrian Peterson leads the NFL in rushing by far and wide margin.
