Vikings | Laquon Treadwell lands with Vikes

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 19:46:43 -0700

The Minnesota Vikings selected Ole Miss WR Laquon Treadwell with the 23rd overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft on Thursday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: Teddy Bridgewater gets a new toy in Treadwell. He could immediately become a possession receiver for the Vikings, a team that doesn't take many deep shots down the field. He's not the quickest wideout, and he'll need to stay disciplined in his route running to be special. Consider Treadwell as a late flier in deeper point-per-reception leagues for WR depth.

Vikings | Cyrus Jones an option for Minnesota?

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 19:53:40 -0700

Alabama CB Cyrus Jones' ability to contribute on special teams and in nickel packages could make him an attractive option to the Minnesota Vikings in the 2016 NFL Draft, according to beat writer Matt Vensel, who believes the Vikings will want an insurance policy in case CB Captain Munnerlyn signs elsewhere after next season.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater worked with WRs

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 15:30:40 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater and Vikings wide receivers, including WR Charles Johnson, recently finished workouts in Orlando, Fla. Johnson said it felt good to make connections, be around his teammates again and learn some new things.

Fantasy Tip: It's always promising when quarterbacks and receivers meet during the offseason to work out together. Bridgewater still isn't in QB1 territory, though, but he is a capable backup fantasy quarterback and a good matchup play.

Vikings | Rib bothered Charles Johnson

Thu, 07 Apr 2016 15:23:06 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Charles Johnson (ribs) said he broke a rib against the San Diego Chargers in September of last season. He added that it took until early November to feel like he could play while managing the injury. Johnson said the rib injury is good now.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Johnson is good to go for offseason activities and the regular season. He's basically looking at a do-over from last season due to the rib injury; he only caught nine passes for 127 yards. Stefon Diggs is still the top Minnesota wide receiver, but Johnson could regain his fantasy relevance in 2016.

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 10:46:36 -0700
