Minnesota Vikings news, rumors and injuries
Sat, 28 Nov 2015 18:15:02 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Diggs ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) has been held in check lately, averaging 51.3 receiving yards over his last three games. He could be headed for another quiet afternoon against Atlanta.

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph finished with 106 yards and a touchdown in Week 11, but since 2013, he has never finished with eight or more fantasy points in standard scoring in back-to-back games.
Fantasy Tip: Rudolph ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is the poster child for inconsistency, and history says that expecting him to build on last week's big performance is a recipe for disappointment.

Minnesota Vikings FS Harrison Smith (knee), DE Everson Griffen (hip, shoulder) and CB Trae Waynes (ankle) are listed as questionable for the Week 12 game against the Atlanta Falcons. FS Robert Blanton (ankle), DT Sharrif Floyd (ankle), OT Matt Kalil (toe), LB Eric Kendricks (ribs) and LB Anthony Barr (hand) are listed as probable. Waynes did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 27. Smith and Griffen were limited during practice, while the other players fully participated in practice.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has been able to play despite the injury. He is coming off one of his best games of the season when he threw for 296 yards and one touchdown last week. Bridgewater may not be the best option for owners since the Falcons play well against opposing quarterbacks.

Minnesota Vikings DE Everson Griffen (hip, shoulder) and S Harrison Smith (knee) did not practice Thursday, Nov. 26. CB Trae Waynes (ankle) was limited. LB Anthony Barr (hand), S Robert Blanton (ankle), DT Sharriff Floyd (ankle), OT Matt Kalil (toe) and LB Eric Kendricks (ribs) participated fully.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) will play this weekend, but he doesn't have a very tasty matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. There are better options at quarterback on FantasyScore this week.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) has been beat up lately but should be good to go against the Atlanta Falcons. The ground game has been the focus in Minnesota this year, leaving Bridgewater as more of a game manager. He's gone over 300 yards just once this year and hasn't done much for fantasy owners to hang their hats on. That shouldn't change this week against a strong Falcons secondary. Consider Bridgewater one to avoid.

Minnesota Vikings DE Everson Griffen (hip, shoulder) and S Harrison Smith (knee) didn't practice Wednesday, Nov. 25. S Robert Blanton (ankle), DT Sharrif Floyd (ankle) and OT Matt Kalil (toe) were limited, while LB Anthony Barr (hand) and LB Eric Kendricks (ribs) practiced in full.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson has had a fine season but has been tainted by the fumbles. After one of his worst weeks of the season in Week 11, AD has a nice opportunity to bounce back against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12. The Falcons have been extremely poor against runners this year. Peterson will be a very strong option on FantasyScore.
Sun, 22 Nov 2015 18:32:29 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Rudolph hadn't topped 30 yards in a game since the opener, and nearly doubled his season total in one game. He has the physical tools to deliver big numbers on a routine basis, but there is no guarantee he will continue to produce.
Sun, 22 Nov 2015 18:25:34 -0800
Fantasy Tip: The Vikings fell behind in the second half, forcing them to abandon the run. Peterson should remain one of the safest options at running back going forward.
Sun, 22 Nov 2015 14:37:51 -0800
Fantasy Tip: It appears that Bridgewater suffered a minor injury and should play again in the game. He has not been a great starting option for owners this season and likely is a backup for most owners.
