Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater quiet in playoff game

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 14:47:14 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater went 17-for-24 for 146 yards during the wild-card playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater threw 14 touchdowns for the second straight regular season and threw for at least 200 yards in only seven games this season. Bridgewater could improve next season but should only be a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues in 2016.

NFL | Seahawks-Vikings game to be cold

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 10:03:19 -0800

The wild-card matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings Sunday, Jan. 10, is expected to see a temperature in Minneapolis at a high of 1 degree, not counting the 10-15 mph wind-chill factor. Both Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater have fared well in cold games in their careers. Wilson is 3-2 with a 66.9 completion percentage while averaging 258.4 passing yards and a 13-2 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Bridgewater is 6-3 with a 66.5 completion percentage while averaging 191.8 passing yards and a 12-5 touchdown-to-interception ratio.

Fantasy Tip: You should never make a final decision on a fantasy player based on cold weather. While both quarterbacks have played well in their careers in cold temperatures, you have to like Wilson ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) much more in this one on FantasyScore, even at the higher price. Bridgewater ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has finished the season strong but has the unenviable task of facing the Legion of Boom.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater does little in win

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 22:56:31 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater completed 10 of his 19 pass attempts for 99 yards, no touchdowns and one interception in the Week 17 game against the Green Bay Packers. He was sacked three times while rushing for just two yards on two attempts.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater will face another difficult matchup against the visiting Seattle Seahawks next Sunday in the first-round of the playoffs. Avoid Bridgewater in FantasyScore, as even with limited options he is not a recommended play.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater improving

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 09:09:40 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater has thrown six touchdowns and no interceptions in the last three games to achieve the second highest passer rating (154.4) in the league in that span when throwing 15-plus yards down the field. In comparison, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has just four touchdowns and two interceptions and has a passer rating below 100.0 in nine straight games.

Fantasy Tip: The Packers are around middle of the pack defending against quarterbacks this year and have stiffened in the last several weeks. Playing in Green Bay won't be easy for Bridgewater ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) with a division title on the line, either. Temper your expectations in this one.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater posts 168 yards, TD

Sun, 27 Dec 2015 21:34:18 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater completed 15 of his 25 pass attempts for 168 yards and a touchdown with two runs for 12 yards in the Week 16 game against the New York Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater did plenty to help his real team win, but his stat line didn't help many fantasy owners to victories on Sunday despite an ultra-favorable matchup against a bad New York pass defense.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater's role won't expand

Tue, 22 Dec 2015 18:42:56 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater has completed 16 of his 18 third-down pass attempts over the last two games, but head coach Mike Zimmer said he is not planning to become a pass-first offense. "We want to run the football," Zimmer said. "And we want to be efficient throwing the ball."

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) tossed four touchdowns in Week 15, but he still has just 13 passing touchdowns for the year. The Minnesota offense is going to run through Adrian Peterson ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) most weeks, so Bridgewater is no lock to produce big numbers against the New York Giants in Week 16.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater accounts for five TDs

Sun, 20 Dec 2015 13:51:21 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater went 17-for-20 for 231 yards and four touchdowns against the Chicago Bears in Week 15. He also rushed for 17 yards and one touchdown on four carries during the game.

Fantasy Tip: It was the second time this season that Bridgewater threw for multiple touchdowns and set a career-high with his four touchdowns in Week 15. He will be facing the New York Giants in Week 16 and could be a sleeper option for owners since the Giants have struggled against the pass.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater encouraging in loss

Fri, 11 Dec 2015 09:12:43 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater threw for a career-high 335 passing yards in the Week 14 loss to the Arizona Cardinals Thursday, Dec. 10, and he was under control for much of the game and saw the field well and beat the Cardinals blitzes.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater threw for one touchdown and had no interceptions in his best game of the season. It's encouraging for a quarterback that hadn't done much at all to speak of for his fantasy owners. However, even though it came against a top-five defense, we're not ready to say that Bridgewater is playable yet in any fantasy format.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater better in shotgun

Thu, 10 Dec 2015 12:55:22 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater has been better in shotgun than under center this year. He's thrown an interception on 2.0% of his passes on plays in shotgun compared to 3.3% when he's under center. Six of his eight touchdowns this year have come out of shotgun formation. However, RB Adrian Peterson is more comfortable with Bridgewater under center, as all eight of Peterson's touchdown runs have come with Bridgewater under center. Peterson is averaging 5.3 yards per rush with Bridgewater under center compared to just 2.2 yards per rush in shotgun.

Fantasy Tip: The Vikings are a run-centric team that relies heavily on Peterson ($8,100, 16.2% of cap). Bridgewater ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) hasn't been asked to carry the team, and he's not helping fantasy owners really at all this year. With that said, it's tough to want to pay up for AD on FantasyScore Thursday night against a top-five defense. Stay away from Bridgewater, as well.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater running around often

Tue, 01 Dec 2015 14:47:14 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater entered Week 12 averaging 13.84 yards run per drop back, which is the highest figure for a quarterback in the league. After Week 13, the number increased to 14.86.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) doesn't have the best cast of receivers a quarterback could ask for, and the Vikings are leaning heavily on their ground game this year. Bridgewater also has gone over 300 yards passing just once this year. While the Seattle Seahawks are no longer the Legion of Boom on defense, nobody on FantasyScore should be chomping at the bit to use Bridgewater against them in Week 13.
