Sun, 21 Sep 2014 14:44:50 -0700
Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater will take over as the team's starting quarterback in Week 4 after QB Matt Cassel (foot) suffered fractured bones in his foot in Week 3 against the New Orleans Saints.
Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater is an intriguing option in FantasyScore for Week 4, as he could come with a very reasonable price tag. For those in standard fantasy formats, he is a less attractive option unless your league requires two starting signal callers.

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Matt Cassel (foot) has several fractured bones in his foot, head coach Mike Zimmer said Sunday, Sept. 21, after the Week 3 game against the New Orleans Saints.
Fantasy Tip: With Cassel sidelined, the head coach said Teddy Bridgewater will take over as the starting quarterback. In standard fantasy leagues, he is a low-end QB2 at best. In FantasyScore for Week 4, Bridgewater could be a very intriguing option if the price is right.

Fantasy Tip: Rhett Ellison and MarQueis Gray are the other tight ends on the roster at this point. Neither player likely will be a fantasy option if Rudolph misses some time.

Fantasy Tip: Teddy Bridgewater has replaced Cassel and could keep the job if he plays well. Neither quarterback likely would be a good choice on FantasyScore at this point.

Fantasy Tip: An earlier trial would make the Vikings decide if Peterson will play again this season. Peterson should be kept on the bench until more details on his trial come out.

Fantasy Tip: This may come down to a game time decision, but if Rudolph can play, he is worth the cost of $6,600 in FantasyScore this week.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Patterson will be ready to go on Sunday, and should be worth the $6,800 investment on FantasyScore.

Minnesota Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd (shoulder), LB Chad Greenway (hand, rib) and LB Brandon Watts (knee) all were limited in practice and are questionable for Week 3. OT Phil Loadholt (ankle) was limited in practice and is probable. LB Michael Mauti (foot), CB Xavier Rhodes (groin) and WR Rodney Smith (hamstring) all fully practiced and are probable.
