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.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon has been sharing playing time with Latavius Murray for the last several weeks but is still involved in the running and passing game. He should have a similar role against the Cincinnati Bengals and can be a flex option.

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.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph scores again

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.

Vikings | Six receptions for Stefon Diggs

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 14:19:42 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Stefon Diggs hauled in six receptions for 64 yards on 10 targets in Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs had his most receptions since Week 3. While he has four or more catches in five of his past six outings, he has been held out of the end zone in each of the past four outings. He should still be trusted only as a WR4 in most fantasy formats with some upside.

Vikings | Adam Thielen goes over century mark

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 14:19:15 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen posted six receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers. He was targeted a game-high 13 times.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen and Case Keenum have jelled nicely and the wideout has emerged as a legitimate must-start fantasy option on a weekly basis. In fact, he is a solid WR2 in all PPR formats and a nice WR3 or flex play in most standard leagues. The Vikings host the Bengals in Week 15.

Vikings | Latavius Murray bottled up in Carolina

Sun, 10 Dec 2017 14:18:40 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray ran nine times for just 14 yards in Week 14 against the Carolina Panthers and he added two grabs for six yards on his two targets.

Fantasy Tip: Murray had been gobbling up huge chunks of real estate in the past few weeks, averaging 4.0 yards or better per carry in each of his past four games with four rushing touchdowns. He struggled against the stout Panthers rush defense, however. He'll try and rebound in Week 15 against the visiting Bengals.
