Kevin Waida, a graduate student in the Colorado State University College of Business, enjoys following professional football and competing in fantasy football leagues. Kevin Waida recently won a league championship for the 2015 season, his second in a row for that league, powered in part by the shrewd pick up of Adrian Peterson.

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson enjoyed one of the best seasons of his career in 2015. Peterson carried the ball 327 times over the course of the season, running for 1,485 yards. This marked his best output since 2012 and the third-highest total for his career. He made good on a league-best 11 touchdowns while averaging nearly 93 yards per game, another league record for the year.

In week 10 of the National Football League (NFL) season, Peterson ran 80 yards for a touchdown against the Oakland Raiders. The score saw Peterson move into a tie for 10th place on the league’s all-time rushing touchdown list. He had previously ran 82 yards for touchdowns during games against both the St. Louis Rams and the Green Bay Packers.
