The NFL Offensive Player of the Year award is usually given to the athlete who demonstrates big-time playmaking ability and had the most overall outstanding season.
That said, Adrian Peterson, whom I predict to have his best season yet, will take home the award.
All throughout the offseason, it's been noted that Peterson has been working diligently at improving his craft and specifically on his fumbling issues.
Plus, with Brett Favre likely to take a dip in his production, and the uncertainty surrounding their top two receivers, the Vikings are much more likely to give Peterson a bigger role in the offense.
And, according to reports, we should expect to see him be a bigger factor in the passing game as well.
Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised to see him reclaim the rushing title and lead the Vikings to another double digit win season.
Other Possible Candidates: Drew Brees, Chris Johnson, Andre Johnson
