Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater running in pool

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 16:44:03 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) has been able to run in a pool and take part on other non-weight bearing activities but there is still no timetable for his return, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater is facing a long recovery because of his serious injury and there are questions about his availability for 2017. Owners in all leagues should avoid him next season. Sam Bradford should continue to be the starting quarterback for the Vikings and can be a No. 2 quarterback.

Vikings | Latavius Murray undergoes surgery

Wed, 22 Mar 2017 15:54:26 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray (ankle) underwent ankle surgery Wednesday, March 22, but is expected to be ready for the start of training camp. The Vikings knew Murray would need surgery before they sign him.

Fantasy Tip: Murray likely will miss all of the offseason workouts but should be on the field for the first training camp practice. Murray should receive most of the touches in the running game next season and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues.

Vikings | Short stay for Latavius Murray?

Sat, 18 Mar 2017 19:49:27 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray's deal is for one year with two option years, and the minimum he could make is $3.4 million. The full $5.15 million that he's owed next season becomes guaranteed on the third day of the 2018 league year.

Fantasy Tip: It ends up being a low-risk deal for Minnesota, and Murray should have plenty of incentive to deliver a strong season. He should have a high floor as a volume-based RB2.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson won't return to Vikes

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 14:18:32 -0700

Free-agent RB Adrian Peterson (Vikings) will not be re-signed by the Minnesota Vikings, according to general manager Rick Spielman.

Fantasy Tip: This shouldn't be a surprise since the Vikings just signed Latavius Murray. Murray figures to begin offseason activities as the starter in Minnesota, but Jerick McKinnon could give him a run for his money. Even so, expect McKinnon to split time with Murray, with Murray handling the majority of snaps. Murray should be regarded as a low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 behind a suspect Vikings' offensive line.

It also comes with a $1.5 million base salary, up to $500,000 in weekly roster bonuses and a $150,000 workout bonus.

Vikings | Latavius Murray terms

Thu, 16 Mar 2017 08:23:31 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray received a three-year, $15 million deal, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Murray fits the offense better than Adrian Peterson, and he's a two-way threat that should help Sam Bradford in check-down situations. Murray will probably have to share some of those third-down reps with Jerick McKinnon, and Murray has been a bit brittle. However, he has upside in the offense with a heavy workload and has RB2 bang for the buck.
