Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater is likely to miss the entire 2017 season as he continues his recovery. Sam Bradford should continue to start in his place, but he is a low-upside QB2.

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent WR Adam Thielen said there is "something special" about playing for one franchise, and he hopes to stay with Minnesota if he receives an offer in his "ballpark."
Fantasy Tip: Thielen developed great chemistry with Sam Bradford and emerged as Minnesota's steadiest receiver. If he is a Viking in 2017, he should be a quality WR3.

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson said his future in Minnesota depends on how he will be used. "I need to know if I'm going to play or not," Patterson said. "If not, I'll take my talents elsewhere. If they want me back, they'll make a deal and get me back."
Fantasy Tip: Patterson's role in the offense increased once Pat Shurmur took over as offensive coordinator, but his fantasy value is always going to be tied to big plays. His boom-or-bust style makes him more appealing in DFS formats than in season-long leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson will likely have to agree to a pay cut to return to Minnesota, and there is a good chance he plays elsewhere in 2017. His days as a fantasy stud are likely in the past, but he will still be an intriguing option in 2017 if he lands with a strong offense.

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph said his play in 2016 is more up to his standards and expects to post similar stats moving forward. "I talked about how my first five years were kind of disappointing to me, in terms of my standards," Rudolph said. "This season was more along the lines of what I expect for myself, and what I expect moving forward, to kind of be a springboard and a baseline for the rest of my career." Rudolph finished the 2016 season with 83 receptions for 840 yards and seven touchdowns.
Fantasy Tip: Rudolph posted career highs in receptions and receiving yards this season and was able to play all 16 games for the third time in his career. He should continue to be a main part of the passing game for the Vikings and can be a No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

The Minnesota Vikings may be open to re-signing impending free-agent OT Matt Kalil this offseason since there may not be great tackle options for them in free agency, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Ben Goessling.

Fantasy Tip: Unsurprisingly, he easily set career-highs in targets (132), catches (83), and yards (840). While Rudolph benefited from Vikings' shift from an Adrian Peterson-centric offense to a short-passing attack designed to camouflage the league's worst offensive line, it also helped Rudolph played all 16 games for only the third time in his six-year career. Since it is unlikely Minnesota can address all the holes it has up front in one offseason, Rudolph stands a great chance of posting high-end TE1 numbers again in 2017.
