Vikings | Adrian Peterson says he's stronger

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 11:25:21 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said his body is stronger and more explosive than before because he had months to "push my body to the max." Peterson said he doesn't feel he has to "do this or do that to revamp who I am" in the public's opinion, and he thinks football will be more fun moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: A more focused, stronger and rested Peterson is a scary thought, especially when you consider he's playing for a team with a quarterback that should be better in his second year with plenty of other sneaky playmakers around him. Peterson should strongly be considered for the No. 1 overall fantasy pick in all formats.
