Vikings | Want to get Adrian Peterson in space
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.
