Fantasy Tip: Diggs has caught at least eight passes in four of the last five games and has 76 yards in three of those games. He has only two touchdowns on the season but can still be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver in most leagues.

Fantasy Tip: The Vikings have lost six of their last seven games, so there is a chance that Peterson sits out the rest of the season. He may see limited snaps if he does return and could be at least a flex option in some leagues.

Fantasy Tip: It might be too late for him to be a factor in fantasy, but the potential is still there if you can afford the roster spot.

Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings FS Harrison Smith (ankle) is likely lost for the season with a Grade 3 high ankle sprain, according to a source. The source said Smith eventually could need surgery. For now, the plan is for doctors to evaluate him on a week-to-week basis. There is hope Smith could return to play late in the regular season, perhaps putting off surgery, if that is deemed his best option for long-term recovery.

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 21:41:55 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Diggs has caught eight or more passes in four of his last five games, and he should continue to be a strong WR3 with WR2 upside in PPR formats. He is an inviting matchup with Jacksonville on tap in Week 14.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen has logged 15 catches on 20 targets over the last two games, and the chemistry he has with Sam Bradford is undeniable. He is a viable WR3 option in PPR formats.
Thu, 01 Dec 2016 19:05:30 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Bradford appears to have avoided a serious injury, but his value is limited to leagues that start two quarterbacks.
Thu, 01 Dec 2016 18:46:10 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Bradford took a hard shot and appeared to be in pain as he walked off the field. Given his injury history, the situation needs to be monitored.
