Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson stated that he targeting the 2,500-yard single season rushing mark, according to the Vikings’ official website. Head coach Mike Zimmer said that AP is “going to get the heavy workload” and “as much as he can take, and as much as he can handle in all the things that we’re doing,” per USAToday.com.
Despite playing in only one regular season game in 2014, Peterson appears to be in line for an extremely productive season.
It’s very possible that AP rushes for 1,500-yards plus this season. While the 2,500-yard single season rushing mark has never been reached, Peterson is capable of rushing for more than 2,000 yards, a feat he accomplished in 2012. AP will likely rush for at least 1,500 yards.
