After spending four seasons in a West Coast, zone-blocking scheme, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson appears invigorated by the potential of new offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave's offense.

"The running back is definitely asked to do a lot more," Peterson said. "I'm excited about it. I'm excited to get this installed in my mind and get out there on Sunday to showcase the new Vikings offense."

If all goes as planned, Peterson will play a much bigger role in the Vikings' downfield passing game than in previous years.

Fantasy Impact: 

Peterson already has one of the most impressive fantasy portfolios and a bigger role in the passing game could give him a great chance at being this year's number one overall fantasy player. However, time will tell if he is used more as a receiver. For now, he's our number three PPR back.
