Vikings | No timetable for Teddy Bridgewater

Sun, 15 Jan 2017 09:35:09 -0800

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is doing well in his recovery from a serious knee injury but there are too many factors in the recovery to determine a return date for Bridgewater.

Fantasy Tip: It may be a while until Bridgewater returns to the field because of the severity of the injury, so owners will need to keep an eye on the situation during the offseason. He will be a risky option for fantasy owners next season and may not be more than a low-end No. 2 quarterback if he returns early in the season. Sam Bradford could be the starter for the Vikings in 2017 but he is only a No. 2 quarterback.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson had significant tear

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 07:48:03 -0800

Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) said he tore 90 percent of the meniscus in his right knee earlier in the season. He returned in 12 weeks after a full repair.

Fantasy Tip: His future with the team, and his RB1 status in fantasy, is up in the air. He'll be 32 next season and didn't look good before the knee injury; albeit his offensive line had something to do with that. He presents a lot of risk as a low-end RB1, and it makes more sense to take him as a second back in hopes of one more big rushing season.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph had career year

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 07:42:10 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph had a career-high 83 catches for 840 yards, and his seven touchdowns were the most since 2012. He reached a performance escalator of $375,000 on 2018 and 2019 salaries for surpassing 80 catches. His 132 targets were the most among tight ends this season.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph rekindled his TE1 stature this season, and there's no reason to believe he can't build on the rapport with Sam Bradford next season. Rudolph will be a midrange TE1 option in drafts.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater's option likely exercised

Tue, 10 Jan 2017 07:38:15 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is likely to have his fifth-year option picked up for the 2018 season. Bridgewater is under contract for $2.18 million for 2017, and the 2018 option could be worth more than $11 million. However, it would give the team a full year to assess him after his major knee injury.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like Sam Bradford will be their starter heading into next year, and Bridgewater may not even be ready. Bradford has been oft-injured in his career, and it's very possible Bridgewater could return to the starting role at some point. He's not worth drafting for now, but he's someone to keep an eye on in his recovery.

Vikings | Adam Thielen emerges as deep threat

Sat, 07 Jan 2017 20:49:22 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen led all receivers by catching 70.4 percent of his targets that traveled 15 yards or more down the field this season.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen developed great chemistry with Sam Bradford, just missing out on a 1,000-yard season. He enters 2017 as a viable WR3 option.

Vikings | Sam Bradford should start in 2017

Tue, 03 Jan 2017 11:53:40 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford has earned the right to be the starting quarterback of the Vikings, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford may begin offseason activities as the starter, but Teddy Bridgewater won't be pushed over lightly. He'll be coming off a gruesome season-ending injury that ended his sophomore year before it even started. Bradford was a supremely efficient passer this season, leading the league with a 71.6 completion percentage. He's just not a reliable weekly fantasy starter.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson wants to stay in Minnesota

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 10:02:18 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has told reporters he would like to stay with the team, although he declined to say whether or not he would accept a pay cut. He went on to say there are certain players, such as Tom Brady and Antonio Brown, in whom franchises should invest in more than others.

Fantasy Tip: This doesn't sound like a player willing to accept a pay cut. Given his age (32 in March) and the fact he is due $11.75 million in the final year of his contract next season, he is highly unlikely to return with that attitude. AP won't be out of work for long, but his days as an elite RB1 could very well be coming to an end, assuming they haven't already.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson wants to stay

Mon, 02 Jan 2017 08:28:28 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he wants to stay with the Vikings in 2017, but he declined to say whether he would accept a pay cut.

Fantasy Tip: AD will be 32 in March, and it's probably 50-50, at best, that he stays in Minnesota. It'll be really hard to count on him as an RB1 next season with nearly 2,500 carries on his body, but the perfect situation could still give him that chance.
