Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner said he expects RB Adrian Peterson to catch 50-60 passes out of the backfield in 2014.
Huddle Up: This is obviously something that would make Peterson more attractive in PPR leagues as the RB has averaged only 29 catches a year over the last 3 seasons.

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is happy with the hiring of offensive coordinator Norv Turner and called him 'the perfect guy to lead us and get us on the right path.' The Vikings were ranked 23rd in the league in passing offense last year, and they were ranked 31st in the league in 2012. 'I'll tell you, our pass offense has really struggled in the past couple years,' Peterson told USA Today Sports. 'I think (Turner) is going to be the perfect guy to come in and get us on the right path.'
Huddle Up: Of course left unsaid here is the Vikings need a competent QB to run Turner's offense and take some of the burden off Peterson. Turner has had that in previous stops in Dallas (Troy Aikman) and San Diego (Philip Rivers) but most definitely didn't in most recent gig last season with the Browns.
