Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater closing gap

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 22:43:49 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater saw reps with the first-team offense in practice Wednesday, July 30. According to NFL Network's Albert Breer, QB Matt Cassel appears to lead the race for the starting quarterback job, but Bridgewater has closed the gap.

Fantasy Tip: The starting QB job in Minneapolis will be a heated battle through training camp and the preseason. The winner of the battle might emerge as a useful QB2 in most fantasy leagues, especially if WR Cordarrelle Patterson is everything as advertised this season.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson practices on limited basis

Tue, 29 Jul 2014 17:43:53 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson (foot) ran routes in full pads Monday, July 29, and worked on the side with athletic trainers.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson appears to be working his way back up to speed, and his injury doesn't seem like one that will linger. At full speed, he is a big play waiting to happen, and he is worth drafting as a WR2.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson excited about offense

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 13:50:20 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he is looking forward to playing in the team's new offense because it is more versatile than the one the team had been using for the last several seasons. "Let's call it what it is: I thought in the past, we've been predictable," Peterson said. "I'm sure you guys wrote stories about us being predictable the past seven years. You won't be able to write that story this year. That's pretty much all I'm saying. You won't be able to do that, because this offense is so versatile."

Fantasy Tip: Peterson could get more involved in the passing game in 2014, which will only help his fantasy value. He should be gone within the first few picks in all fantasy leagues.

Vikings | QBs splitting reps

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 10:12:46 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QBs Matt Cassel, Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Ponder have been evenly splitting reps during the early part of training camp, according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. Turner will split the reps two ways after the team's upcoming off day.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Cassel is the leading candidate for the starting job at this point but all three are still options for the job. Cassel likely would be a desperation matchup play if he wins the starting job. Bridgewater and Ponder likely would not have much fantasy value even if they win the job.
