Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is wanted back by general manager Rick Spielman once he is eligible to apply for reinstatement April 15. "I don't know if there's a team in the NFL that wouldn't want Adrian Peterson on the football team," Spielman said Wednesday, Jan. 14.
Fantasy Tip: If and when Peterson returns, and he knocks off a little rust, he can still be a force in fantasy football. He turns 30 on March 21, and will be heading into the back nine of his career. However, he has proven detractors wrong in the past.

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater has the necessary arm strength to succeed in the NFL, according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. "Teddy has all the key characteristics to be an upper echelon quarterback in this league," Turner said. "He really impressed me with how he played this year and how he continued to improve. He's got great vision, he's got great presence in the pocket. He doesn't get rattled, he's extremely accurate. All the things you're looking for in a quarterback."
Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater had his moments this season as the Vikings often had to pass frequently to play catch-up. Heading into 2015, Bridgewater could be a real nice surprise as a backup fantasy QB with upside, especially if Adrian Peterson returns in the backfield.

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater will start at quarterback heading into next season, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. "I think we're fortunate in the fact that we learned an awful lot about Teddy this year and the progress that he's made," Zimmer said. "He's still got to get a lot better to get to where we want to go. He's got to improve in the offseason and things like that, but yeah, I think it will allow the focus to move to another spot, other spots, not one spot, but other spots, we've got a lot of spots we've got to get better at. I think that helps solidify probably the number one question that was going on at this point in time last year."
Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't come as a huge surprise. Bridgewater wasn't spectacular in his rookie campaign but he did enough to retain his starting role. He'll be no more than a QB2 option heading into 2015 fantasy drafts.

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will be wanted back by head coach Mike Zimmer when Peterson's suspension ends next year. "I think he's a good person. I think obviously he's a great running back and if it works out that way and things work out and he gets his life in order ... then I will be in his corner whenever the decision is made [to bring him back or not]. Peterson was told earlier this month that he would serve a two-game suspension next year for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.
Fantasy Tip: There's still a lot of watching and listening to be done this offseason with Peterson's situation, but if his two-game suspension upholds, he could still be an RB1 heading into 2015 fantasy drafts.
