Adrian Peterson fell just nine yards short of Eric Dickerson's single-season rushing record, but still gained 199 yards on 34 carries. He accounted for two touchdowns, one on the ground and another on a two-yard reception.
Peterson finished the regular season with 2,097 yards on the ground, becoming just the seventh player in NFL history to cross the 2,000-yard barrier. He totaled 13 touchdowns on the season.
Fantasy Impact: Peterson is contending for MVP and Comeback Player of the Year honors. Fantasy owners were plenty happy with his production this season, especially considering how far he dropped in a lot of fantasy drafts. Don't expect Peterson to fall to the second or third round next year.
