Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater's option likely passed on

Wed, 26 Apr 2017 06:43:24 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is unlikely to have his fifth-year option exercised by the May 2 deadline, according to sources. The Vikings could still re-sign Bridgewater, but they do not appear willing to guarantee his 2018 salary for north of $11 million for injury when the quarterback is still trying to make it back from a catastrophic knee injury that has derailed other NFL players' careers.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater is probably not someone you can expect to see the first half of the season, if at all in 2017.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater still without timetable

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 12:37:37 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) remains without a timetable as he continues to recover from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and dislocated knee. General manager Rick Spielman did say that Bridgewater had a great first week of offseason activities.

Fantasy Tip: Whether or not Bridgewater will be ready for Week 1 of the 2017 season remains to be seen, but he may not even start even if he is ready. That being said, neither Sam Bradford nor Bridgewater should be drafted as QB1.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater running in pool

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 16:44:03 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) has been able to run in a pool and take part on other non-weight bearing activities but there is still no timetable for his return, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater is facing a long recovery because of his serious injury and there are questions about his availability for 2017. Owners in all leagues should avoid him next season. Sam Bradford should continue to be the starting quarterback for the Vikings and can be a No. 2 quarterback.

Vikings | No timetable for Teddy Bridgewater

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 11:23:12 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) still has no timetable for his return, according to general manager Rick Spielman. Spielman added that it would be "unfair" to give Bridgewater an ultimatum after suffering multiple serious injuries. Bridgewater is recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and a dislocated knee.

Fantasy Tip: At this point it looks like Bridgewater will keep playing second fiddle to Sam Bradford, especially after Bradford's unsung success last year. Stay away from Bridgewater for the time being, and only draft Bradford as a QB2.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater working to return

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 18:44:15 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is "grinding" and doing all types of drills as part of his rehab from his knee injury, according to WR Charles Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater is likely to miss the entire 2017 season as he continues his recovery. Sam Bradford should continue to start in his place, but he is a low-upside QB2.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater likely to miss 2017 season

Fri, 27 Jan 2017 10:15:04 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is expected to miss the entire 2017 season to continue his comeback from the torn ACL and dislocated knee he suffered during training camp last summer, according to a team source, which suggested the "shortest recovery" time for a player with Bridgewater's injuries is 19 months.

Fantasy Tip: A 19-month recovery would put Bridgewater on the shelf until March of 2018. Sam Bradford will enter this summer as the clear starter in the final season of his two-year deal and should be considered a midrange QB2 in fantasy.

Vikings | No timetable for Teddy Bridgewater

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 09:35:09 -0800

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is doing well in his recovery from a serious knee injury but there are too many factors in the recovery to determine a return date for Bridgewater.

Fantasy Tip: It may be a while until Bridgewater returns to the field because of the severity of the injury, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation during the offseason. He will be a risky option for fantasy owners next season and may not be more than a low-end No. 2 quarterback if he returns early in the season. Sam Bradford could be the starter for the Vikings in 2017 but he is only a No. 2 quarterback.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater's option likely exercised

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 07:38:15 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is likely to have his fifth-year option picked up for the 2018 season. Bridgewater is under contract for $2.18 million for 2017, and the 2018 option could be worth more than $11 million. However, it would give the team a full year to assess him after his major knee injury.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Sam Bradford will be their starter heading into next year, and Bridgewater may not even be ready. Bradford has been oft-injured in his career, and it's very possible Bridgewater could return to the starting role at some point. He's not worth drafting for now, but he's someone to keep an eye on in his recovery.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater has surgery set

Tue, 06 Sep 2016 06:08:23 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) has surgery scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 8, to repair his torn anterior cruciate ligament and other damage in his left knee, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater is likely to miss a calendar year or more, and the team snatched Sam Bradford from the Philadelphia Eagles. Bradford has a lot of physical talent, but it just hasn't shown up on game day. He's a midrange QB2 that could perform well in spurts if he remains protected.
