The Minnesota Vikings preseason officially wrapped up on Thursday night, as the team dropped a 24-17 game to the Tennessee Titans, which put Minny’s final preseason record at 4-1.

Jerry Rice: Adrian Peterson still number one pick in fantasy

We don’t know if Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice actually plays fantasy football. However, his advice to pick Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson at No. 1 is solid. Despite the fact that the league contains many pass-heavy NFL teams and that Peterson is coming off of a one-year suspension, Rice apparently has no reservations about endorsing the 30-year old running...

There isn’t a ‘LeBron James of football,’ and there never will be

Jamaal Charles and Adrian Peterson both think they’re the “LeBron James of Football.” Both are wrong, and here’s why. 1. A running back can’t be a LeBron — The last two seasons were the most pass-heavy campaigns in NFL history. The face of almost every team is the quarterback.

Vikings LB annoyed over how team used him to promote Adrian Peterson

Adrian Peterson, son featured in Vikings' 'Family Day' tweet
