Vikings | Laquon Treadwell overthinking

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 12:43:18 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell is still thinking too much as he tries to get comfortable in the offense, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Tip: Treadwell is a popular breakout candidate this summer, but an adjustment period for a player transitioning from a college spread attack to Norv Turner's offense should have been expected despite the hype. The rookie belongs on watch lists and should eventually fulfill his promise, although it is looking more and more likely he'll be Stefon Diggs' long-term sidekick and not the other way around.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson focused on 2016 return

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 09:25:51 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) is focused solely on playing again this season, according to a report from Pro Football Talk.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson has to sit out until Week 11, but it would be mistake to rule him out for the season given his track record. Owners in deeper leagues or those with IR spots are advised to hold as long as possible in part because AP is one of the few true feature backs around, but Minnesota's offensive line has been so bad so far that he should be considered no more than a RB2 even if he does return. Jerick McKinnon will continue to serve as the lead back during his Peterson's absence.

Vikings | Stefon Diggs finishes for 40 yards

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 13:43:41 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs caught four passes for 40 yards against the Carolina Panthers in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs recorded at least 100 yards in each of the first two games of the season but was held in check against the Panthers. He should be more involved in the passing game next week and should be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for owners.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph finds end zone

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 13:38:01 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph caught seven passes for 70 yards and one touchdown against the Carolina Panthers in Week 1.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph has scored a touchdown in each of his last two games and has been targeted at least eight times in all three games this season. He should continue to be a solid option in Minnesota's passing game and can be a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon held in check

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 13:29:20 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed for 45 yards on 16 carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 3. He also caught one pass for two yards in the game.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon will continue to share work with Matt Asiata even though both struggled in Week 3. McKinnon probably will not be more than a flex option most weeks.

Vikings | Matt Asiata has quiet Week 3

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 13:17:09 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata rushed for 15 yards on six carries against the Carolina Panthers in Week 3. He also caught one pass for four yards.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata was facing a tough Panthers defense and should play better moving forward. He will receive playing time as long as Adrian Peterson is sidelined but will not be more than a flex option in most leagues.

Vikings | Matt Asiata to start Week 3

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 09:13:59 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata will be the starting running back for the Vikings in Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata should receive a decent amount of carries this week and likely will run between the tackles, while Jerick McKinnon will be used as a runner as well as a receiver out of the backfield. Both players are facing a tough Carolina Panthers defense but could still be flex options in fantasy leagues.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson hopes for rapid recovery

Sat, 24 Sep 2016 15:50:28 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) has told people in and around the organization that he believes he can be ready to play when he is eligible to be activated from the Reserve/Injured list in eight weeks, according to sources. It is believed that it will take at least one month before doctors will be able to tell whether an expedited return for Peterson is possible.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson will miss at least half of the season because of the injury, but owners should monitor the situation to see if he will be able to play in the last few games. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata will share work while Peterson is out. McKinnon can be a low-end No. 2 running back or a flex option in most leagues, while Asiata can be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 17:17:56 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph should receive a decent amount of targets in Week 3 but is only a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.
