Vikings | Sam Bradford day-to-day

Mon, 25 Sep 2017 12:29:02 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) is back at the team facility and is considered day-to-day, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Tip: If Bradford is even off to a limited start in practice this week then that will be a good sign. Consider, though, that the Vikings may want to rest him another week to get him fully healthy, especially after the career game Case Keenum constructed in Week 3. Have a backup plan ready in case Bradford sits again.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph held to one catch

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 14:07:23 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph caught one pass for four yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph was targeted only twice in the game but may still be working on his chemistry with Case Keenum. He could be a low-end No. 1 tight end against the New York Giants this week but could also be benched if owners have better options.

Vikings | Adam Thielen nearly reaches 100 yards

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 14:04:14 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught five passes for 98 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen has caught at least five passes in each of the first three games and is averaging almost 100 yards per game. He will continue to be a big factor in the team's passing game and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for fantasy owners.

Vikings | Stefon Diggs scores twice

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 14:00:06 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs caught eight passes for 173 yards and two touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs bounced back from a quiet Week 2 performance with his second two-touchdown game this season. He has become a reliable option for fantasy owners and should be starting in all fantasy leagues each week no matter the matchup.

Vikings | Dalvin Cook a big factor for Vikings

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 13:56:34 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed for 97 yards and one touchdown on 27 carries against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3. He also caught five passes for 72 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Cook received almost all of the carries during the game and is the clear No. 1 running back for the Vikings. He will continue to be involved in the passing, which makes him a weekly starting option for owners in all fantasy leagues.

Vikings | Case Keenum throws three TDs

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 13:52:33 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum went 25-for-33 for 369 yards and three touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum played much better than he did in Week 2 and could start again next week if Sam Bradford is still sidelined by his knee injury. He would be facing the Detroit Lions if he starts next week and probably should not a starting option in most fantasy leagues.

Vikings | Sam Bradford remains week-to-week

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 07:51:47 -0700

A second opinion from Dr. James Andrews confirmed that Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) has no structural damage in his left knee, according to multiple sources. He is considered week-to-week due to a bone bruise.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford practiced on a limited basis twice last week before being ruled out for Week 3's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He will rest for the foreseeable future in order to allow the joint to calm down. Case Keenum will continue to start in Bradford's absence but he should not be considered a viable option in any fantasy format. Owners of players such as Kyle Rudolph, Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs should expect a decline in offensive production as long as Bradford is sidelined.

Vikings | Dalvin Cook wants to start stronger

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 21:48:04 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook has 14 carries for 25 yards in the first halves of his two games this year and 20 carries for 166 yards in the second halves, and he said he is working on being more effective early in games.

Fantasy Tip: Facing the Buccaneers in Week 3 without Sam Bradford under center isn't ideal, but Cook's workload should at least make him a volume-based RB2.

Vikings | Jarius Wright happy to see the field

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 19:38:33 -0700

Vikings | Case Keenum gets nod in Week 3

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 15:21:58 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum will be the starter again in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with QB Sam Bradford (knee) on the shelf.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum being under center means a decrease in fantasy appeal for Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph, Adam Thielen, etc. Diggs and Thielen should be treated as WR3 or WR4 options, while Rudolph is still a red zone threat and a solid low-end TE1. The Buccaneers DST will be a popular fantasy option against the backup QB.

Vikings | Sam Bradford seeks second opinion

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 15:21:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) is out for Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he is seeking a second opinion on his ailing knee.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain when Bradford will be able to return to game action, so it will be Case Keenum under center again this Sunday. That news immediately means a downgrade to the fantasy value of Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph, Adam Thielen, etc. Diggs and Thielen should only be considered as WR3 or WR4 plays, while Rudolph remains a low-end TE1 for his ability in the red zone. The Buccaneers DST is also a favorable unit to play against Keenum.
