Over the last two decades, the Minnesota Vikings have fielded two of the most prolific offensive weapons in modern football. Randy Moss was drafted 21st overall by the Vikings in the 1998 NFL Draft. He made an immediate impact for the franchise, becoming the team’s top receiver in his rookie year and continuing the trend for the next six seasons. He scored 17 touchdowns as a rookie while averaging more than 82 yards per game. In 1999, over the course of two post-season games, Moss averaged nearly 158 yards per contest. The wide receiver’s top performance as an individual came in 2003. He again made 17 touchdowns, a number he would eclipse only once in his career, while averaging 102 yards per game.

More recently, the Vikings have relied on Adrian Peterson as a primary offensive tool. Taken seventh overall in the 2007 draft, the running back led the team in rushing from his rookie year through the 2013 season. He ran for 96 yards per game as a rookie, a figure that jumped to 110 yards in his second season. Despite putting up more than 131 yards per game in 2012 on an average of 19 yards per carry, Peterson scored 13 touchdowns, compared to his career high of 18 in 2009. His 2012 season ranked number one overall in approximate value among all NFL players, while his 86 rushing touchdowns places him first among active players.
