Purple FTW!

The inevitable has finally come to pass (but not pass block). The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings have declined to pick up the $18 million option for Adrian Peterson in 2017. General manager Rick Spielman was adamant that the Vikings still would like to re-sign the soon to be 32-year old running back in free agency and Adrian has said the door for a return is not closed, but the die is cast and money talks. I'll elaborate where I think he plays in 2017, deconstruct the Spielman press conference at the NFL Combine from Wednesday, and zoom through some other Purple news and notes.

All that and more "Willie Beavers and TJ Clemmings are going to be in Training Camp" chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings are primed to have a fantasy relevant offense at all levels in 2018. Adding offensive genius John DeFlippo and perennial 4000 yard thrower of the football Kirk Cousins to a squad with electric wide receivers Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, the return of dynamic Dalvin Cook, and Kyle Rudolph is also a player. To analyze all the fantasy angles, we brought in Friend of the Program Marcas Grant (@MarcasG) of NFL.com Fantasy to chat about who/where/why some Vikes will be worth grabbing in your leagues this year. Plus Vikes Over Beers with Josh Pelto and Andrew Roth!
