Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson looking to improve

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 08:35:51 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson said he plans to focus on improving his route running this offseason. "Just route running," Patterson said. "Growing up, I was always athletic and could just do anything. I'm in the NFL now, so I just have to focus on my craft and just work at route running, getting in and getting out of breaks and stuff like that."

Fantasy Tip: Patterson was a flop in 2014, but the acquisition of Mike Wallace should shift some of the defensive attention away from him. Patterson is a great WR3 in traditional leagues. His promise may make it tough to acquire him as such, though.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson likely to stay in purple

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 05:50:45 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is 80% likely to remain with the Vikings, in the opinion of ESPN insider Chris Mortensen.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson will have to share the load with Jerick McKinnon to a degree, but it shouldn't hinder AD much. Peterson is a midrange RB1.

Vikings | GM praises Cordarrelle Patterson

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 20:21:54 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has dedicated himself to becoming a better receiver, according to general manager Rick Spielman. "I think Cordarrelle has really grown up a lot," Spielman said. "I know what he has done this offseason dedicating himself to being the best receiver he can be, and how serious he is taking that, we're very excited about the future with Cordarrelle."

Fantasy Tip: Patterson was a huge disappointment last season, and he was basically a non-factor in the passing game for most of the year. Still, he possesses elite athleticism and speed, and he has the ability to turn any catch into a big play. Patterson is worth taking a chance on later in drafts just in case he realizes his potential in 2015.

Vikings | MIN wants to keep Adrian Peterson

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 11:13:34 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is not expected to be traded by the Vikings unless the team is overwhelmed by an offer from another team, according to a source. The Vikings are confident that time will help their relationship with Peterson. A source said a recent report that stated the Vikings are looking for a first-round pick and a starting cornerback in a trade for Peterson is not accurate, which may suggest the Vikings would be looking for even more in a trade.

Fantasy Tip: There will still be rumors about a possible Peterson trade during the offseason, but it looks like he will start the season with the Vikings at this point. Peterson likely will be a first-round pick in most fantasy drafts next season no matter where he plays.

Vikings | Six teams in mix for Adrian Peterson

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 10:44:16 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson remains a candidate to be traded, and a source close to the situation believes that if he isn't traded before or during the 2015 NFL Draft next week, that he will remain in Minnesota. The Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Dallas Cowboys, Jacksonville Jaguars, San Diego Chargers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in the mix for Peterson, and the source didn't include the Oakland Raiders, who had been mentioned in previous reports as a possible candidate. Peterson is under contract for three years and $43.25 million, but none of the money is guaranteed. The Vikes may be hard-pressed to receive a late first-round pick for Peterson, because of his age (30).

Fantasy Tip: A lot can still go down for Peterson and the Vikings before or during the draft, so stay tuned. The reality is that Peterson will likely be in consideration for the top overall fantasy selection this year, regardless of which team he lands with, or even if he remains in Minnesota.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson not attending workouts

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 10:37:21 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is not in attendance for the start of the team's offseason workout program Monday, April 20, according to league sources. However, Peterson hasn't attended this stage of the team's offseason before. Minnesota wasn't expecting Peterson to show, according to a source. His $250,000 workout bonus is tied to his participation for organized team activities (OTAs) and the mandatory minicamp in June.

Fantasy Tip: There still remains the chance that Peterson is traded by the Vikings before the 2015 NFL Draft next week. Stay tuned. Regardless, though, Peterson should be in consideration for the No. 1 overall fantasy pick this fall.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson has offseason bonuses

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 05:57:43 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has a $250,000 offseason bonus in his contract for participating in all mini-camps, all organized team activities and reporting to training camp on time. The first day that has implications on that bonus is May 26 when OTAs begin.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson is trying to maneuver his way out of town, but he really needs to participate in as much offseason stuff as possible after missing all but one game last season. Peterson is a mid-to-low RB1 in fantasy.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson may not work out

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 09:28:13 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said earlier this week that he's not sure if he'll participate in the team's offseason program. Minnesota is set to start their offseason workouts Monday, April 20, with a mandatory minicamp in June. Peterson can now participate in all team activities after being reinstated from the commissioner's exempt list Friday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: The Peterson situation may really get interesting now that he's been reinstated into the league. It remains to be seen if the two sides can work out their differences, or if the Vikes will trade him away. Either way, Peterson will play in 2015 and will likely be considered for the top overall fantasy selection, depending on where he's playing.

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 11:51:24 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Peterson will be able to play in Week 1, but it is not known if he will be with the Vikings or be wearing another team's uniform. Peterson will enter next season as one of the top fantasy running backs and likely will be selected in the first round of most drafts.
