Three most underrated players on the Vikings’ roster

The Minnesota Vikings don’t have too many well-known superstars on their roster. In fact, many would tell you Adrian Peterson is the lone Pro Bowl-caliber player on that team. Then they’ll tell you Mike Wallace is overrated, Cordarelle Patterson will be a bust and that Anthony Barr is solid but not great. But lost in the cards are a handful of Vikings players that quietly will...

Three absolutely insane TD runs by Minnesota Vikings RB Adrain Peterson (video)

All offseason Minnesota Vikings running back Adrain Peterson has made a ton of off the field headlines. Obviously plenty’s been written about what he did (some very bad things), but this post is to remind everyone what a talent Peterson is on the field. In no way are his actions being excused; this is just a reminder the guy happens to be an amazing football player. Here are three...

Can Adrian Peterson have a bounce back year?

This past year had to be one of the most frustrating that Minnesota Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson had ever faced.  His season was cut short when it came out that he had taken punishing his child a little too far and soon everyone was debating how someone could discipline their child and how Peterson should be punished. There is no doubt that Peterson went too far, but...

Vikings RB McKinnon: If I had a fantasy team, I'd take myself

To say that the Minnesota Vikings group of running backs are hitting the 2015 season overflowing with confidence would be an understatement. In addition to Adrian Peterson proclaiming himself the best running back in the game, second-year player Jerick McKinnon is apparently feeling really positive about this year. “If I had a fantasy team and could take myself, I would....

Adrian Peterson: I'm still the NFL's best running back

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson slipped to No. 62 in NFL Network’s ranking of the Top 100 Players of 2015.

Video: Adrian Peterson can’t control his new gadget

Minnesota Vikings’ running back Adrian Peterson bought a new Phunkee Duck, similar to a Segway but it doesn’t have the handlebars and is moreso shaped like a skateboard Peterson posted a video of himself trying out his fancy new gadget, though it’s clear he doesn’t exactly understand how it operates just yet: Stuntin gone wrong You may also be interested in: Video: Adrian...

WATCH: Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson Wipes Out on a Phunkeeduck

Adrian Peterson is back. He will be suiting up for the Minnesota Vikings and will make the division race much more interesting than it was last year (or has been in a while). Fans are excited and fantasy owners are scrambling to figure out whether he is still worth the No. 1 pick in the draft. Well--AP almost brought dreams of gridiron and fantasy glory to a screeching halt Thursday...

What are Peterson's chances of breaking Smith's record?

Adrian Peterson has never lacked for confidence. The 217-pound Minnesota Vikings running back whose physique makes him closely resemble Mount Kilimanjaro has little reason to doubt himself. That’s especially true now after he spent nearly an entire season away from football, and therefore he’s not a real 30-year-old running back. His football body is actually 29 years old...

What Adrian Peterson's return means for the Vikings

Now that Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has returned to the team and is participating in OTAs this week, the entire landscape surrounding this situation has changed. The stunning about-face from Peterson’s camp will likely change the dialogue from what the Vikings are going to do with the veteran running back to how he fits into the team’s offense with young...

Adrian Peterson goes on social media rant regarding contract

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson probably doesn’t understand that “tweeting through it” won’t accomplish many goals. The much maligned veteran went on a pretty absurd Twitter rant on Thursday, talking about everything from how NFL teams don’t honor contracts to how players are thrown to the side “like trash.” It was a meltdown of epic proportions: ...
