6. Adrian Peterson– Adrian Peterson- When you discuss some of the best players in the NFL today, of course the usual names will be said. Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and J.J. Watt to name a few. Then you have All Day or better known as Adrian Peterson who’s been no stranger to this list at all. He’s back this time as my sixth best player on the best players list. Normally when a running back approaches the age of 29, they begin to struggle and their bodies start breaking down and they’ll retire at an early age. That’s far from the case with the man football fans refer to as AP. He returned in 2015 and won his third rushing title and completed something rare and that’s the rushers triple crown as he led the league in carries, rushing yards and rushing touchdowns. He reclaimed his title as the best running back in the game. What I enjoy about his game is he runs with anger and that’s what I really admire about him. If you do anything in this league with some anger, you’ll benefit from it greatly. He’s not human, he never stops and his feet are always moving. He can cut in between the tackles and he has the speed to bounce outside and make defenders miss. At 31 years old, he’s shown no signs of slowing down whatsoever. For a guy of his size, he’s fantastic when it comes to making defenders miss in the open field even if it’s in a small space. I’ll never forget the play when the Vikings were playing the Denver Broncos just last season. Denver had done a good job at stopping him and taking him away but this was a third and short situation and he turned it into six points. It doesn’t really matter where you could be lined up on the field or how many yards you need, Adrian Peterson will get his. He’s accomplished a lot in his career. The most rushing yards in a game with 296, offensive rookie of the year, the three rushing titles and the league MVP he won in 2012 after coming back from tearing his ACL and MCL. 15 years from now, we could be discussing Adrian Peterson as the all-time leading rusher. He’s just simply been that good.
