Vikings | New bed helping Jerome Simpson's back

Minnesota Vikings WR Jerome Simpson says his new Tempurpedic mattress has helped stabilize his back and keep him in good posture. Simpson suffered a lower-back ailment, which turned out to be a nerve issue, that squashed his production for two months. "It was more my push-off," he said. "I didn't really have my burst to be able to get away from my defenders when I needed to." Simpson says he's back at 100 percent.

Fantasy Tip: Having Christian Ponder at QB with WR Greg Jennings and TE Kyle Rudolph the main targets, Simpson could either get lost in the shuffle or benefit from frequent single coverage. It depends on whether his health and football acumen can take advantage of the situation, and he hasn't proved that either is consistent. In leagues with deep benches, however, he could be a flyer, but you should be more inclined to make him an inseason pickup.
