Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson earning approval

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 09:36:58 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has garnered an offensive role by merit, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson didn't exactly set the world on fire with five offensive snaps in Week 1, but those five snaps were five more than first-round rookie Laquon Treadwell. He ended up with two offensive touches and probably isn't going to see many more than that in the near future long as Adrian Peterson and Stefon Diggs stay healthy. Owners may want to consider adding him to their watch list, but his upside in this offense as things stand at the moment is limited.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater limited on Saturday

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 17:05:51 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater was on the field but did not attempt any throws at practice on Saturday, Aug. 20. Head coach Mike Zimmer told reporters he had "no concern" about his signal-caller's health.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmer also told reporters Bridgewater "could have played Thursday, but I decided not to play him" in reference to the fact his starting quarterback sat out the team's road exhibition win against the Seattle Seahawks. For now, owners should take Zimmer at his word and consider this a minor issue while also remembering Shaun Hill would be the starter if the situation gets worse. Bridgewater is a mostly unexciting QB2 at the moment in most leagues.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater improving on deep ball

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 21:09:09 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater has shown "plenty of improvement" the last couple of months, especially throwing the deep ball, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. "It's just finishing throws. (We) put the tape on of last year, and there were a bunch of throws where I probably wasn't finishing," Bridgewater said.

Fantasy Tip: The improvements come a year too late for Mike Wallace, who openly complained about needing "a better quarterback" about the same time he signed with the Baltimore Ravens this offseason. The deep passing game has been a sore subject to say the least during Bridgewater's two-year run as the Vikings' quarterback, so Stefon Diggs and rookie Laquon Treadwell figure to benefit greatly if this improvement sticks. Nevertheless, Bridgewater figures to remain an unexciting QB2 in a run-heavy offense this season.

Vikings | Mike Zimmer, Adrian Peterson speak

Sun, 31 May 2015 23:30:08 -0700

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer and RB Adrian Peterson have apparently cleared the air of their differences. Although Peterson still has reservations about returning to the Vikings, his relationship with Zimmer is strong.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson should be a solid RB1 selection even though he has been sidelined for one entire season. It will be even better if Peterson can smooth things over so this isn't a distraction entering 2015.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson not attending OTAs

Sun, 24 May 2015 18:16:25 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has informed head coach Mike Zimmer that he will not attend the optional practices that begin Tuesday, May 26, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson is trying to force a trade, but a deal doesn't appear to be coming. While he may not like his current situation, it would be a major surprise if he went as far as to sit out games during the regular season. Happy or not, Peterson is a RB1 option in 2015.

Vikings | Norv Turner opening up offense

Sun, 17 May 2015 19:39:36 -0700

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner has opened up the playbook to give receivers more chances to make explosive plays, head coach Mike Zimmer said at rookie minicamp.

Fantasy Tip: If Turner does open things up a bit, it would be good news for Teddy Bridgewater and the receiving corps. However, the talk of a more pass-friendly playbook may or may not amount to much when the season begins. For now, the fantasy value of Bridgewater and the rest of the Vikings' offensive players remains unchanged.
