Peterson Is Football’s Best Pure Runner via @Andy_Benoit 8/5/2016
Andy writes "Adrian Peterson is still the best pure runner in football. True, far too many of his runs last season failed to get back to the line of scrimmage, but that’s what happens when you put a superstar running back behind three backup linemen and with a quarterback who doesn’t threaten the field vertically. What makes Peterson special is his violent downhill burst paired with explosive lateral agility. No player moves left and right in confined spaces with such balance and force."

Mike Zimmer talks about Adrian Peterson 8/2/2016 Link
Q: You’re still a run-first team.
A: Yeah. It’s going to go through Adrian (Peterson). That’s how it is. But we’re trying to be a little more diverse in some of the things we do.

Q: How close is Adrian to practicing?
A: He’s close. (The hamstring strain is) real slight. Real, real slight. He can do a lot of things. It’s just I don’t want him full-go yet. He’s probably 95 percent or something like that.

Q: Can he still handle the workload like he has at age 31?
A: Oh, yeah. He’s 6% body fat. He’s a stud, man. And he works. And he’s excited about it. I think he’s excited about the changes we made on the offensive line, the new guys we brought in.

Is Adrian Peterson still the number 1 running back in fantasy? PFF article 7/14/2016

Adrian Peterson says boring offseason could mean earlier retirement
"That's it," Peterson told ESPN. "Training camp, going through the grind, OTAs and all that -- that will definitely be the deciding factor. Physically, body-wise, I'll be good. It's just mentally -- like with OTAs, I'm out there practicing, I'm going, I'm putting in work. But it's so repetitive that it's more suited toward the young guys and getting them into the system. It gets kind of boring."

9/28/2015: Vikings 31, Chargers 14: Adrian Peterson says, 'Yeah, I think I'm back' Adrian Peterson leads the NFL in Rushing!
Against the Chargers this week he gained 126 yards on 20 carries (6.3 YPC) as well as scoring his first two touchdowns of the season. He gained 109 of those 126 yards after contact and forced a ridiculous 10 missed tackles in those carries. Peterson has never been the most complete back in the world, and his receiving skills are more a case of being just good enough to get the ball in his hands and let him run again, but he added 58 receiving yards on a couple of receptions out of the backfield to finish the day with 184 yards from scrimmage. via PFF
