Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said OG Willie Beavers, who was selected in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL draft, will be tried at guard first, even though he spent most of the 2015 season at Western Michigan as a left tackle. Beavers' first experience playing guard came in the Senior Bowl in January.

Minnesota Vikings OT T.J. Clemmings, who started all 16 games at right tackle last season, will move to left tackle to serve as the backup to OT Matt Kalil, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. Kalil is entering the final year of his contract and the team had a logjam at right tackle due to the free-agent signing of OT Andre Smith and the return of OT Phil Loadholt, who missed the entire 2015 season with a torn Achilles' tendon.

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.

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.

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.
