Updating a previous item, Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph has studied videos of past tight ends offensive coordinator Norv Turner has worked with before.
Fantasy Tip: If Rudolph takes time like this to look at how Turner operates his offense, that's a good sign. The team's quarterback situation will determine how the receivers fare in 2014, but if the passing game excels and uses the tight end more often then Rudolph could bear watching.

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner said he expects RB Adrian Peterson to catch 50-60 passes out of the backfield in 2014.
Fantasy Tip: If those numbers play out, that would almost double Peterson's catch total from a year ago, and would obviously increase his value in point-per-reception leagues. This is something to monitor as training camp gets underway in the fall to see exactly how he is being used.

Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said the Vikings will rely on offensive coordinator Norv Turner to help evaluate their options at quarterback for the upcoming season. Minnesota would like to have a veteran quarterback and a young passer, in addition to QB Christian Ponder.
Fantasy Tip: It is anyone's guess who starts the season for Minnesota this year, but their quarterback position doesn't figure to offer much in the way of fantasy value, regardless of who is running the ship.

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner said QB Christian Ponder will be given a legitimate shot to win the starting quarterback job. "I've been impressed with Christian and the things he does in terms of his movement," Turner said. "He moves extremely well on the run. He's made a lot of big plays. The starting point with any quarterback to me is eliminating those (bad) plays. That would be one of our starting points." Ponder is currently the only quarterback the Vikings have under contract.

Minnesota Vikings new offensive coordinator Norv Turner said the team will search for a young quarterback to lead the team this offseason. "Quarterbacks come from a lot of different spots," Turner said. "A third-rounder wins the Super Bowl and there's some pretty good players who weren't drafted high. I think everybody is in agreement: We're trying to add a young quarterback to the organization. So, you just gotta make sure it's a good one wherever you get him."

The Minnesota Vikings could make a play for New England Patriots QB Ryan Mallett. New Vikings coach Mike Zimmer was linked to Mallett before the 2011 draft before the Patriots took him, and new offensive coordinator Norv Turner was interested in Mallett prior to the 2013 campaign.

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson endorsed head coach Mike Zimmer as the team's new leader. "I'm just looking forward to heading in the right direction. I feel like the organization did a great job of bringing in Zimmer and offensive coordinator Norv Turner," Peterson said. "I feel like we're putting the pieces in the right place so I'm just excited to see who all we bring in (to coach) other positions and to see which direction as far as bringing in players to help us accomplish our goal of winning a championship."
