Strength of Schedule

Fantasy Analysis
Week 1 Projections
The beat will go on for one of the league's top runners. The Vikings are a run first offense, with Peterson being expected to carry the load. There is the potential that he might come out on an occassional third down, but those will be few and far between. Pencil him in as one of the top fantasy options in week one.
Rushing: 78 Yards, 1 TD.
Receiving: 2 Receptions, 14 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Sixteen games. 327 attempts. 1,485 yard rushing and 11 touchdowns. I'd say that qualifies as "coming back" don't you? After his infamous year off the field and in the courtroom, All-Day did what All-Day does; lead the Minnesota Vikings offense, crush opposing defenses, and win the league rushing title. But all is not sunshine and roses for AP looking forward. Given the recent slide of RBs on the wrong side of 30, history would tell us that Peterson has 1, maybe 2 years left at dominating the position, before handing over the mantle to the young studs circling around him. What does this mean for owners in 2016? Not much if you are in a re-draft league, as Peterson should still find a way to score a ton of points in both standard and PPR leagues. But for those looking beyond this year, it's safe to let someone else ride AP in 2016 and move to one of the younger RBs who have an equally high ceiling but far less than 2,381 career carries.

Rushing: 1271 Yards, 10 TD.
Receiving: 34 Receptions, 228 Yards, 1 TD.
