But there are few tidbits that are Fantasy Football related, and the first one is: What exactly will happen with father-of-the-year Adrian Peterson? It’s no secret that he doesn’t want to be playing for the Vikings (dat victim card tho), and while the child abuse allegations are still very serious, it’s hard for the team not to dream of an emerging Teddy Bridgewater having Peterson in the backfield. Especially since another team trading for the embattled back would mean giving up multiple first round picks and absorbing a 60-million-dollar contact, well, it just seems more and more that this is just posturing by Adrian Peterson and his agent.

Which, in terms of fantasy football, isn’t the worst case. Not even close. I’ll be talking a lot about Bridgewater leading up to the start of the season, but I liked what I saw last year and think the Vikings could surprise a lot of people.
