Adrian Peterson, RB
He ran with a chip on his shoulder all year in 2015 and racked up 1,485 yards (third most in his career) and 11 touchdowns at an age where most running backs hit their decline. Now 31 years old, Peterson is looking to continue his assault on run defenses and while there are a number of skeptics, they are in the minority still as most believe Peterson will remain worthy of a first-round draft choice. Teddy Bridgewater has another year of experience under his belt and the team improved its receiving corps in the offseason, so the presence of an improved passing game could open things up for the aging superstar. Now the only question is whether his removal from games late in the season repeats or does head coach Mike Zimmer keep the faith all season.
