Vikings | Full practice for Adam Thielen

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 16:30:13 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon practices in full

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 16:22:50 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 14.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph misses practice

Thu, 14 Dec 2017 10:11:15 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) did not practice for a second straight day Thursday, Dec. 14.

Fantasy Tip: It would be a shame for Rudolph's hot streak to end because of an injury. He has found the end zone four times in his last three games but needs to practice at some point this week. Have a backup plan in place in case Rudolph continues to be sidelined.

Vikings | Adam Thielen works on limited basis

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 14:18:32 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (knee) was able to work on a limited basis in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen has three 100-yard games over his past five outings and he has scored four times in the past six contests. He has emerged as a dependable flex option in standard fantasy play, and as an excellent WR2 in PPR formats. He has four or more grabs in all 13 games this season.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon limited in practice

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 14:18:02 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Dec. 13.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon has taken a backseat to Latavius Murray in recent weeks, totaling 14 touches in Week 13 and just nine total touches in Week 14 while managing 107 total yards from scrimmage over the past two outings. He was able to find the end zone once, which is nice, but he is more of a RB4 in deeper fantasy leagues at the moment.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph in jeopardy to miss Week 15?

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 10:18:12 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) was spotted in a walking boot Wednesday, Dec. 13. Head coach Mike Zimmer told reporters he'll know more about Rudolph's availability for Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals later in the week.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph sat out the final few plays of Week 14 with the injury. While his receptions are down from the career-high 83 he had last season, Rudolph is having another fine season and on a three-game scoring streak. If he cannot play, David Morgan and Blake Bell are the next men up, although neither one would be worth considering in the fantasy playoffs.

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 14:20:11 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph finished with three receptions for 41 yards and a touchdown on his five targets in Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph has scored touchdowns in three straight games (four total), pleasing fantasy owners using him as a TE1 down the stretch. He'll look to extend the streak in Week 15 against the visiting Bengals.
