Best Vikings Player

Adrian Peterson

AP's 2013 wasn't on par with his out-of-this-world MVP campaign of a year prior, but he was still easily the best thing the Vikings had going. Purple Jesus ran for over 1,200 yards during an injury-truncated campaign, but the Vikings' fortunes sagged along with their best player's health and performance. AP will still be on the young side of 30 heading into next season, but with more than 2,000 NFL carries, one major knee reconstruction, and a number of other significant injuries already under his belt, it's fair to wonder whether his best days are behind him. Then again, we're talking about a guy who ran for more than 2,000 yards in a season just months removed from the aforementioned knee reconstruction. As always with AP, all bets are off.
