Minnesota Vikings DL Danielle Hunter could earn a starting position next season and will likely at least see an increased role. Hunter contributed six sacks in his rookie season in 2015 coming off the bench.

Fantasy Tip: While Adrian Peterson will be the workhorse in Minnesota as long as he is healthy, McKinnon has too much upside to go undrafted. Stash him on your bench in 2016 just in case Peterson goes down.

Fantasy Tip: These changes obviously affect the likes of Adrian Peterson and Kyle Rudolph. Shurmur brings an extensive coaching pedigree to Minnesota, and he should be able to keep Rudolph comfortable on the fantasy radar. Stefanski has been with the Vikings for 11 years, giving Peterson some familiarity. Peterson stays in RB1 territory, while Rudolph is right on the fringe of TE1 territory if he can stay healthy.

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson caught only 30 passes this season even though the team said they wanted to throw to him more often in order to reduce some of the hits he receives as a runner. He was targeted only 36 times, which was fewer than all but two seasons during his career.
Fantasy Tip: Peterson's main value is his rushing yards with his receiving stats being a bonus for fantasy owners. Peterson probably will be targeted more often in the passing game next season and will be a first-round pick in all leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson led the NFL in rushing during the regular season with 1,485 rushing yards but also was one of the league leaders in fumbles. Peterson should still be a first-round pick in fantasy leagues next season and could be in the conversation for the No. 1 overall pick.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson rushed for 1,485 yards during the regular season, which led the NFL in that category. Peterson should continue his solid play next season and will be a first-round option in every league.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater threw 14 touchdowns for the second straight regular season and threw for at least 200 yards in only seven games this season. Bridgewater could improve next season but should only be a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues in 2016.
