Vikings | More on Adam Thielen's deal

Thu, 23 Mar 2017 08:43:44 -0700

Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen signed a four-year deal worth $19.246 million with $6.746 million in the first year.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen had a 69-967-5 year in 2016 as he emerged onto the fantasy radar. There will be some questions regarding whether he can build on it, but he's in the WR4 mix in fantasy.

Vikings | Latavius Murray undergoes surgery

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 15:54:26 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray (ankle) underwent ankle surgery Wednesday, March 22, but is expected to be ready for the start of training camp. The Vikings knew Murray would need surgery before they sign him.

Fantasy Tip: Murray likely will miss all of the offseason workouts but should be on the field for the first training camp practice. Murray should receive most of the touches in the running game next season and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.

Vikings | Short stay for Latavius Murray?

Sat, 18 Mar 2017 19:49:27 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray's deal is for one year with two option years, and the minimum he could make is $3.4 million. The full $5.15 million that he's owed next season becomes guaranteed on the third day of the 2018 league year.

Fantasy Tip: It ends up being a low-risk deal for Minnesota, and Murray should have plenty of incentive to deliver a strong season. He should have a high floor as a volume-based RB2.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson won't return to Vikes

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 14:18:32 -0700

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) will not be re-signed by the Minnesota Vikings, according to general manager Rick Spielman.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't be a surprise since the Vikings just signed Latavius Murray. Murray figures to begin offseason activities as the starter in Minnesota, but Jerick McKinnon could give him a run for his money. Even so, expect McKinnon to split time with Murray, with Murray handling the majority of snaps. Murray should be regarded as a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 behind a suspect Vikings' offensive line.

Vikings | Latavius Murray terms

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 08:23:31 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray received a three-year, $15 million deal, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Murray fits the offense better than Adrian Peterson, and he's a two-way threat that should help Sam Bradford in check-down situations. Murray will probably have to share some of those third-down reps with Jerick McKinnon, and Murray has been a bit brittle. However, he has upside in the offense with a heavy workload and has RB2 bang for the buck.

Vikings | Latavius Murray boards Vikings' ship

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 00:08:24 -0700

Free-agent RB Latavius Murray (Raiders) agreed to terms on a three-year contract with the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday, March 16. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed, but ESPN's Field Yates reports the contract can be voided after one season.

Fantasy Tip: The signing all but closes the door on a potential return for Adrian Peterson and is perhaps the best landing spot for Murray, who spent most of 2016 sharing touches in the Oakland Raiders' backfield. Murray should have a clear path to 200-plus carries and could flirt with low-end fantasy RB2 value in Minnesota, while Jerick McKinnon should retain potential low-end flex value as the likely passing-down back.

Minnesota Vikings restricted free-agent WR Adam Thielen agreed to a three-year deal with the Vikings Wednesday, March 15, according to a source. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen is coming off a career year in 2016 and should continue to have a significant role in the Vikings' passing game in 2017. Thielen can be considered a No. 3 receiver or a flex option in fantasy leagues.
