2014 Fantasy Football Rankings: Updating the Top 25 Players Post Free Agency

The king is back.
Fantasy prognosticators spent all offseason debating whether Adrian Peterson could come close to matching his magical 2012 season. Historic seasons are difficult to repeat, as it turns out, and he was somewhat of a disappointment last year.
“Purple Jesus” will come again this year, though. The cavalry is coming to help, and it comes in the form of offensive coordinator Norv Turner.
Now, that name may not elicit much excitement, but Turner has been a great coordinator throughout his career. Just look at what he did with that Cleveland Browns offense, guiding quarterbacks Brandon Weeden, Brian Hoyer and Jason Campbell to a combined 4,000-yard season.
There wasn’t much to write home about at running back in Cleveland, but the Browns had nothing even remotely resembling Peterson in that backfield. 
An improved offense means an improved fantasy season for Peterson, who is still looking to break Eric Dickerson’s record. Projecting a record-breaking season would be insane, however, but a fine season is in store nonetheless.
Projection: 320 carries, 1,600 yards, 13 touchdowns; 25 receptions, 250 yards, 1 touchdown
