Vikings | Sam Bradford helped off

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 18:46:10 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (undisclosed) was helped off the field against the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Dec. 1. He was replaced by QB Shaun Hill.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford took a hard shot and appeared to be in pain as he walked off the field. Given his injury history, the situation needs to be monitored.

Vikings | Sam Bradford expected to start

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 08:15:29 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford is expected to start in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers. Bradford has been adept at learning the offense, and head coach Mike Zimmer may not announce it or inform the team because the news came out that QB Shaun Hill would start last week.

Fantasy Tip: The player this will impact most is Adrian Peterson, who rushed 19 times for 31 yards in Week 1 because Tennessee stacked the box. Peterson has a fruitful week against a yearly questionable Packers run defense. Bradford, however, is merely a QB2 in two-QB leagues.

Vikings | Shaun Hill doesn't work with top unit

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 21:26:27 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill did not take first-team reps with the team in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14. QB Sam Bradford took all of the first-team snaps at practice.

Fantasy Tip: Hill started in Week 1 in the win at Tennessee, but the team's win came due to the defense stepping up and not so much due to Hill's exploits. It appears Hill will be back to a reserve role. He can be cut even in deeper fantasy leagues.

Vikings | Minnesota QB undecided for Week 2

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 22:52:47 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill started and was able to pick up the win in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans. However, head coach Mike Zimmer said coaches will huddle before deciding whether Hill or QB Sam Bradford will start in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Hill didn't do much statistically, and Bradford has a lot more talent and fantasy upside. For the receivers, Bradford would help their fantasy appeal in Week 2.

Vikings | Shaun Hill expected to start

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 15:50:26 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill is expected to be the starting quarterback for Week 1, according to sources. The team has not announced if Hill or QB Sam Bradford will start the game.

Fantasy Tip: Hill likely will start since Bradford has spent just a week with the team and may need some more time to learn the offense. Hill is not a great fantasy option since team likely will run the ball often in Week 1.

Vikings | Mike Zimmer won't announce starting QB

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 09:27:21 -0700

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer will not publicly announce whether QB Sam Bradford or QB Shaun Hill will start against the Tennessee Titans Sunday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford and Hill aren't in the starting conversation unless your playing in a two-QB league, so in most cases, you can take a wait-and-see approach here. Plus, the Week 1 matchup against Tennessee should prove to be a low-scoring game and unfriendly fantasy setting.

Vikings | Two Minnesota QBs with first-team reps

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 11:58:21 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QBs Sam Bradford and Shaun Hill will both receive first-team repetitions in practice this week. Head coach Mike Zimmer has not officially named a starter for Week 1 yet.

Fantasy Tip: Either Bradford or Hill would make for a cheap, sleeper option in daily formats for Week 1. The Vikings could ride Adrian Peterson pretty heavily, though, as they've done every year. Neither Bradford nor Hill should be regarded as a QB1 in seasonal leagues.

Vikings | Shaun Hill expected to start Week 1

Sun, 04 Sep 2016 08:08:41 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill likely will be the starting quarterback Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans since QB Sam Bradford will only start practicing with the Vikings this week. Bradford may be ready to take over the starting job in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Hill likely will only start for a week or two until Bradford has a solid understanding of the offense. Hill probably will not be asked to throw much against the Titans and will not be a strong fantasy option. Owners in daily fantasy leagues could consider Hill depending on his price.

Vikings | Shaun Hill unlikely for Thursday's game

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 19:14:26 -0700

The Minnesota Vikings are expected to rest QB Shaun Hill for the preseason finale Thursday, Sept. 1, against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: The team likely wants to preserve the presumed starter in the wake of the Teddy Bridgewater season-ending injury, giving newly re-signed Brad Sorensen and the rest of the backups playing time instead.

Vikings | Shaun Hill to shoulder the load?

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 18:10:54 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill is the likely candidate to take over under center with QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) expected to miss the 2016 season due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament and other structural damage. He has never started more than 10 games in any season and he never has reached the postseason.

Fantasy Tip: Hill is a significant downgrade from Bridgewater, and the injury hurts the fantasy appeal of Stefon Diggs, Laquon Treadwell and Kyle Rudolph, among others. Hill is only worth monitoring for the first few games, and certainly only draftable in deeper leagues which require two starting signal callers. Expect the Vikings to also pursue veteran help via trade or free agency.

Vikings | Shaun Hill back at practice

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 22:53:42 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill practiced on Tuesday, Aug. 23, after not participating in either of the club's practices over the weekend. It's unclear if Hill will play on Sunday, Aug. 28, against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Under normal circumstances this wouldn't be noteworthy, but the tight-lipped approach to Teddy Bridgewater's undisclosed shoulder issue makes Hill's status a bit more meaningful. Still, unless Bridgewater is going to miss significant time -- and there's been nothing to suggest he will -- Hill is of zero interest.

Vikings | Shaun Hill could be Week 10 sleeper

Tue, 10 Nov 2015 22:59:42 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill might be a sleeper in Week 10 against the Oakland Raiders if he is forced into action for the injured QB Teddy Bridgewater. The Raiders are last in the NFL in passing defense, allowing 314.6 yards per game with 35 pass plays of 20 or more yards.

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) might be a sharp play in FantasyScore if he is given the nod to start. No official ruling on Bridgewater's status has come down yet, but monitor it very, very closely.

Vikings | Shaun Hill replaced Teddy Bridgewater

Sun, 08 Nov 2015 14:53:15 -0800

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill replaced the injured Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) in Week 9 against the St. Louis Rams. Hill passed six times, completing two, for 15 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Hill wouldn't be of fantasy considering should Bridgewater miss time. Expect the Vikes to rely more on Adrian Peterson in the event Hill is their starter.

Vikings | May keep two QBs on roster

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 09:36:11 -0700

Minnesota QBs Teddy Bridgewater and Shaun Hill may be the only quarterbacks on the final roster if the team decides they want to keep a No. 3 quarterback on the practice squad. Hill is expected to win the backup quarterback job with QBs Mike Kafka and Taylor Heinicke as options for the No. 3 job.

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 07:59:01 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis has been benched, and QB Shaun Hill will start in Week 11 Sunday, Nov. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($3,700; 7.4% of your cap) is only worth consideration on FantasyScore if you're looking to load up at other positions.

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 07:58:16 -0800

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill will start Sunday, Nov. 16, against the Denver Broncos.

Fantasy Tip: Hill ($3,700; 7.4% of your cap) is not worth consideration on FantasyScore this week unless you're looking for a barebones QB option to load up elsewhere.

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 10:10:42 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill said he is disappointed that he lost his starting job to QB Austin Davis but will do everything he can to help the team. "It's frustrating but you take a step back and think about it, it's not about me, it's about the team," Hill said. "It's frustrating but at the same time, you've got to keep going. It's a tough league for tough minded people and I put myself in that category."

Rams | Austin Davis likely to start

Sun, 21 Sep 2014 08:12:36 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis is likely to start Sunday, Sept. 21, against the Dallas Cowboys. QB Shaun Hill (thigh) is likely out.

Fantasy Tip: Davis ($4,200; 8.4% of your cap) is a bare-minimum option on FantasyScore this week. He has a good matchup against Dallas' porous secondary. You can start him if you want to load up on other positions.

Rams | Shaun Hill listed as questionable

Fri, 19 Sep 2014 13:18:22 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (thigh) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 19, and is considered questionable for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Hill will be a game-time decision for the game, so there is a chance Austin Davis will start the game. Neither quarterback should be used in any leagues this week.

Rams | Rams QB could be game-time decision

Thu, 18 Sep 2014 17:17:21 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis or QB Shaun Hill (thigh) could come down to a game-time decision in Week 3 against the Dallas Cowboys, according to head coach Jeff Fisher.

Fantasy Tip: We don't recommend starting either Rams quarterback at FantasyScore, even though they're both cheap - Davis ($4,200) and Hill ($4,700) - and going against a weak Dallas Cowboys defense.

Rams | Limited practice for Shaun Hill

Wed, 17 Sep 2014 14:35:13 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (thigh) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Hill was active in Week 2 but didn't start. The Rams won't rush him back to the starting role if they don't feel he's healthy. If Hill returns this week to face the Dallas Cowboys suspect defense, he'll be an under-the-radar profit at FantasyScore ($4,700).

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (thigh) will travel with the team for their Week 2 game, but he is still considered questionable at this point. QB Austin Davis likely would start if Hill is not able to play.

Fri, 12 Sep 2014 12:49:03 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (thigh) was limited in practice Friday, Sept. 12, and is questionable for Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Even with a FantasyScore price of $4,700 (9.40% of cap), look elsewhere for better options. There is not a lot of upside here, especially if Hill can't play.

Rams | Shaun Hill misses practice

Thu, 11 Sep 2014 18:58:49 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (thigh) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 11 because of a thigh injury, but offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said Hill might not have to practice this week in order to be able to play Sunday, Sept. 14, because of his experience and knowledge of the offense.

Fantasy Tip: The Rams managed just six points in an ugly Week 1 loss, and even though Hill's $4,700 salary (9.4% of cap) makes him one of the cheapest options at the position in FantasyScore, the upside just isn't there, especially with the injury possibly holding him out.

Rams | No QB controversy for Rams

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 16:42:35 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (quadriceps) was removed from the game in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings due to a strained left quadriceps and not because of his poor performance, head coach Jeff Fisher confirmed Monday, Sept. 8. Hill went 8-for-13 for 81 yards and an interception before departing late in the first quarter. Hill did not return to the game because it was decided that he could only make his injury worse by playing. Fisher said that if Hill is healthy, there is no quarterback controversy.

Fantasy Tip: Hill is the Rams' best option at quarterback, but he's unlikely to play in Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Look elsewhere for your QB at FantasyScore this week.

Rams | Shaun Hill a long shot to play

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 14:16:33 -0700

Updating a previous item, St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (quadriceps) is "a long shot" to play in Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after undergoing an MRI exam on his strained quadriceps Monday, Sept. 8. The team will have a better idea on his status by Wednesday, Sept. 10, or Thursday, Sept. 11. Hill went 8-for-13 for 81 yards and an interception in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings before being injured. Either QBs Austin Davis or Case Keenum will start in Week 2 if Hill cannot play.

Fantasy Tip: Going with Hill or one of his backups in FantasyScore in Week 2 at a discounted price isn't advised. That'll make all of St. Louis' receiving options unattractive pieces, too.

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 11:11:52 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill (quadriceps) may not play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday, Sept. 14, as he has a strained quadriceps.

Fantasy Tip: Hill shouldn't have been your starting quarterback in the first place. Austin Davis will likely start if Hill can't go. You won't want to start him either, no matter how low his price is on FantasyScore.

Rams | Austin Davis finishes up

St. Louis Rams QB Austin Davis completed 16 of 23 passes for 192 yards and an interception in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings, coming on for the injured QB Shaun Hill (quadriceps).

Fantasy Tip: Davis might be a solid low-priced FantasyScore option in Week 2 if he draws the start. Squeezing him into your lineup would assure you of having several studs across the board at other positions.

Rams | Sam Bradford to IR

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 13:08:18 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) was officially placed on Reserve/Injured Tuesday, Aug. 26. Bradford tore his anterior cruciate ligament in the team's third preseason game.

Fantasy Tip: Shaun Hill is a capable replacement and did a good job replacing Bradford last season. That being said, he's no more than a streamer option for now.

Rams | Shaun Hill is the starter

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 08:08:45 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Shaun Hill will remain the starter, according to head coach Jeff Fisher. Recent speculation placed the Rams the center of trade talks for a new quarterback, but Fisher said the team is committed to Hill.

Fantasy Tip: There is reason to believe that Hill may be an upgrade from Sam Bradford. He is healthy, for one, which Bradford wasn't completely before the re-injury, and this offense is built for Hill's playing style. He is a low-end QB2 consideration.

Sun, 24 Aug 2014 13:10:07 -0700

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) is out for the season after an MRI revealed a torn left anterior cruciate ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Zac Stacy will be relied upon even heavier with Shaun Hill as the quarterback. Stacy is a low-end RB2. Tavon Austin's stock could take a slight hit, but he remains a solid WR4. Kenny Britt is still worth a late-round flier as a WR5.

St. Louis Rams QB Sam Bradford (knee) left the third preseason game early after suffering an apparent injury to his left knee. The knee was looked at by the team's medical staff, and Bradford limped to the locker room.

Fantasy Tip: The severity of the injury is not known at this point, but the team should update his condition in the next day or two. Shaun Hill likely would start if Bradford misses any time but should not be drafted in any league.
