Vikings | Minnesota may look at AJ McCarron

Sun, 18 Feb 2018 09:36:39 -0800

Cincinnati Bengals impending free-agent QB AJ McCarron is expected to receive interest from the Minnesota Vikings if the Vikings are not able to re-sign impending free-agent QB Case Keenum.

Fantasy Tip: Several teams will be looking for starting quarterbacks this offseason, so McCarron should have several options available. He has seen limited playing time since entering the league and probably would be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if he is a starter.

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 20:46:44 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell could be shopped this offseason for a draft pick, according to Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Tip: Treadwell has been a bust in Minnesota, and a change of scenery could be best for both him and the Vikings at this point. Treadwell value is limited to dynasty leagues for now.

Vikings | Kirk Cousins wants to be in Minnesota?

Sun, 04 Feb 2018 18:11:24 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent QB Kirk Cousins has the Minnesota Vikings "number one with a bullet" on the list of teams he'd like to play for in 2018, according to Paul Allen of KFAN Minneapolis.

Fantasy Tip: Cousins has said he wants to go to a team capable of winning right away, and the Vikings fit that mold. With all three of Minnesota's current quarterbacks heading to free agency, the Vikings could be in the market. Wherever Cousins lands, he should be able to provide low-end QB1 production.

Vikings | Dalvin Cook headed for big year?

Fri, 02 Feb 2018 20:34:35 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (knee) has "progressed nicely" from his knee surgery, general manager Rick Spielman said Thursday, Feb. 1, and Spielman said Cook could have the same success that Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson had coming off his knee surgery in 2012.

Fantasy Tip: Although it's a reach to suggest Cook could threaten the NFL rushing record and win MVP honors like Peterson did in his return from ACL surgery, Cook showed enough potential prior to his injury to make him a RB2 candidate in 2018.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater FA status unclear

Thu, 01 Feb 2018 22:47:05 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater could have his contract tolled, which would put him back under contract with the Vikings for 2018 at his salary rate ($1.354 million) from the past season as opposed to entering unrestricted free agency. The issue stems from Bridgewater spending the first six weeks of this past season on the PUP list and whether or not he was medically cleared at any point before those six weeks elapsed. GM Rick Spielman indicated the decision to have the contract tolled would come from the NFL and the NFLPA, and not from the Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Got all that? It's an obscure rule, but it could at least potentially take Bridgewater off the market, though the speculation is the NFLPA would file a grievance if the NFL tried to toll his contract. At this point it's just wait and see for Bridgewater, who figures to draw some interest on the open market.
