Vikings | Adrian Peterson discontent in Minnesota?

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 13:30:22 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is wanted back in Minnesota, but the question is if Peterson wants to come back. Head coach Mike Zimmer said he doesn't believe Peterson would be a disruption if he did return to the Vikings. "I want him to want to be [in Minnesota], like I want all of my players to want to be there. I've been in situations before that I thought were not the best situations." Zimmer added that he thinks his football relationship with Peterson is a good one in its current state.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson reportedly wants out of Minnesota, so it remains to be seen exactly what his fantasy value will be in 2015. The Vikings are still very much in the Peterson sweepstakes, however. No matter where he plays, Peterson has proven to be an elite fantasy running back during his years in Minnesota. He should still be considered a top fantasy running back even if he leaves, although the amount of playing time could obviously differ.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson not being moved

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 09:40:38 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson will not be traded this offseason, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. "No, no chance whatsoever," Zimmer said. "Cordarrelle is a young, emerging player who was with his third coordinator in three years. Quite frankly, we need to do a good job of figuring out how we can use him better and he needs to understand where he's supposed to be, the routes and everything."

Fantasy Tip: Patterson had a disappointing 2014 season with 384 yards and one touchdown in 16 games. Patterson should have a role in the offense next season but probably will not be a starter. Patterson could be an option in the later rounds of drafts, but owners should not count on him to be a consistent fantasy option.

Vikings | No plans to trade Adrian Peterson

Wed, 25 Mar 2015 07:43:03 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is disgruntled and reportedly wants out of Minnesota, but head coach Mike Zimmer said the team has no plans to trade him.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson's value would increase a bit on a better team, and it's hard to envision this situation mending. It's still possible he stays in Minnesota, but either way, he's a low- to mid-RB1 on draft day.

Vikings | Agent wants Adrian Peterson to move on

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 16:48:08 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's agent, Ben Dogra, said Monday, March 23, that he doesn't think "it's in Adrian's best interest to play in Minnesota" in 2015 and beyond. Peterson remains under contract with the Vikings, and the team brass expects him to remain in Minnesota. Dogra also refused a meeting with general manager Rick Spielman several days ago.

Fantasy Tip: The situation between Peterson and the Vikings could get a little messy. If he doesn't return to Minnesota, he could be traded or sit out another season. It's likely that Peterson will be playing somewhere in 2015, and if he is, he should be considered an option for the top overall fantasy selection.

Vikings | MIN GM expects Adrian Peterson to stay

Mon, 23 Mar 2015 14:55:47 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is expected to be part of the Vikings next season, according to general manager Rick Spielman. "Adrian's a member of our football team," Spielman said. "He is under contract with us, and we are focused on the 2015 season and expect Adrian to be a part of that." Peterson has met with team officials twice this offseason to discuss his future. Spielman would not say if Peterson has asked for a trade or if the team has received interest from other teams.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson likely will be a starting running back next season, but it is not known which team he will play for in 2015. Owners should consider selecting Peterson in first rounds of drafts next season since he has been a fantasy star in previous seasons.
