Vikings | Sam Bradford remains week-to-week

Sun, 24 Sep 2017 07:51:47 -0700

A second opinion from Dr. James Andrews confirmed that Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) has no structural damage in his left knee, according to multiple sources. He is considered week-to-week due to a bone bruise.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford practiced on a limited basis twice last week before being ruled out for Week 3's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He will rest for the foreseeable future in order to allow the joint to calm down. Case Keenum will continue to start in Bradford's absence but he should not be considered a viable option in any fantasy format. Owners of players such as Kyle Rudolph, Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs should expect a decline in offensive production as long as Bradford is sidelined.

Vikings | Dalvin Cook wants to start stronger

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 21:48:04 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook has 14 carries for 25 yards in the first halves of his two games this year and 20 carries for 166 yards in the second halves, and he said he is working on being more effective early in games.

Fantasy Tip: Facing the Buccaneers in Week 3 without Sam Bradford under center isn't ideal, but Cook's workload should at least make him a volume-based RB2.

Vikings | Jarius Wright happy to see the field

Sat, 23 Sep 2017 19:38:33 -0700

Vikings | Case Keenum gets nod in Week 3

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 15:21:58 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum will be the starter again in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with QB Sam Bradford (knee) on the shelf.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum being under center means a decrease in fantasy appeal for Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph, Adam Thielen, etc. Diggs and Thielen should be treated as WR3 or WR4 options, while Rudolph is still a red zone threat and a solid low-end TE1. The Buccaneers DST will be a popular fantasy option against the backup QB.

Vikings | Sam Bradford seeks second opinion

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 15:21:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) is out for Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he is seeking a second opinion on his ailing knee.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain when Bradford will be able to return to game action, so it will be Case Keenum under center again this Sunday. That news immediately means a downgrade to the fantasy value of Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph, Adam Thielen, etc. Diggs and Thielen should only be considered as WR3 or WR4 plays, while Rudolph remains a low-end TE1 for his ability in the red zone. The Buccaneers DST is also a favorable unit to play against Keenum.

Vikings | Sam Bradford ruled out Week 3

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 10:40:29 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) has been ruled out for Week 3 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Tip: While it's a bummer for Bradford's owners hoping for an encore to his Week 1 performance, owners of Kyle Rudolph, Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen are probably the most upset by this news, as backup Case Keenum is a considerable step down from Bradford. Rudolph is still worth a start in most leagues, but Diggs and Thielen are probably WR3s at best. Streamers of defense/special teams units should feel good about the Buccaneers this week, however.

Vikings | Sam Bradford limited

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 13:46:31 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford is shaping up to be a legitimate game-time decision. It would behoove Bradford owners to have a backup plan in place in case Bradford is sidelined again. That backup plan should not be Case Keenum.

Vikings | Sam Bradford puts in limited practice

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 13:49:09 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford could be a game-time decision again this week, so have a backup plan in place in case. Case Keenum is not a good backup plan. Pick up someone like Josh McCown, Jacoby Brissett or DeShone Kizer if you're really desperate.

Vikings | Sam Bradford improving

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 08:33:30 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was feeling better Tuesday, Sept. 19, and he's being considered day to day, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford hasn't been a particularly quick healer in his career, and he's anything but a safe bet to play in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. If he goes, he's still a backup option in fantasy.

Vikings | Sam Bradford dealing with bruise?

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 11:51:32 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) is believed to have a bone bruise in his injured knee, according to a source. Bradford will be given an injection after which the Vikings will assess how the knee responds and go from there.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford's absence was evident in the Vikings' Week 2 loss. The offense sputtered coming off a supremely successful Week 1 outing. Have a backup plan at quarterback in place for now. Case Keenum will start again if Bradford can't play, but don't start Keenum in traditional fantasy leagues.

Vikings | Sam Bradford could be back for Week 3

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 07:28:10 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) just had swelling and discomfort from taking a shot to his knee, and he could return in Week 3, according NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. His status will depend on how he responds to treatment.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford would be a backup or emergency option in fantasy against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3.
