Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater tossed three interceptions and had two more passes that were almost picked off in practice Monday, Aug. 11. Head coach Mike Zimmer plans to talk with the other coaches to determine how they'll use their quarterbacks in the second preseason game. QB Matt Cassel will start the game after playing just the first series in the first preseason game. Bridgewater played around two quarters and was 6-for-13 with 49 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater's mediocre preseason debut and his struggles in practice have held in check much of the optimism that the Vikings have had for Bridgewater in training camp. It reminds all of those over zealous drafters that Bridgewater is still a rookie, and this is definitely Cassel's job to lose.

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater completed six of his 13 pass attempts for 49 yards in his preseason debut Friday, Aug. 8, against the Oakland Raiders. He did not throw any touchdown passes, nor did he toss any interceptions. The rookie out of Louisville was also sacked twice.
Fantasy Tip: Matt Cassel was efficient in leading the first-team offense down the field on the first drive for a touchdown, so Bridgewater might have a while to go before unseating the veteran for the starting job.

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater saw reps with the first-team offense in practice Wednesday, July 30. According to NFL Network's Albert Breer, QB Matt Cassel appears to lead the race for the starting quarterback job, but Bridgewater has closed the gap.
Fantasy Tip: The starting QB job in Minneapolis will be a heated battle through training camp and the preseason. The winner of the battle might emerge as a useful QB2 in most fantasy leagues, especially if WR Cordarrelle Patterson is everything as advertised this season.

Minnesota Vikings QBs Matt Cassel, Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Ponder have been evenly splitting reps during the early part of training camp, according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. Turner will split the reps two ways after the team's upcoming off day.
Fantasy Tip: It appears Cassel is the leading candidate for the starting job at this point but all three are still options for the job. Cassel likely would be a desperation matchup play if he wins the starting job. Bridgewater and Ponder likely would not have much fantasy value even if they win the job.

Minnesota Vikings QBs Teddy Bridgewater and Matt Cassel saw a majority of the snaps during spring workouts, but QB Christian Ponder has a chance to start, and head coach Mike Zimmer claims it will be a fair competition. "Actually, I think Christian has done a very good job in the time that we've had him and how much he has improved in that amount of time," Zimmer said. "We're going to give everyone a fair shot, and preseason games will help determine it. We want someone who is going to take care of the football, lead the team in the right direction and when called upon be able to win football games."

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner has been very happy with QBs Matt Cassel, Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Ponder heading up to training camp. "We've got a really, really good group," he said, explaining that it won't be hard to parcel out snaps in the apparent three-headed battle. Cassel is expected to be the starter, but Turner has praised Bridgewater for his arm strength and quick learning.
Fantasy Tip: Turner's vertical passing scheme is usually good news for his quarterbacks. However, the vet Cassel is unlikely to be a difference-maker for your fantasy squad as anything more than a midrange QB2. Bridgewater is expected to eventually take this job.
