Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater fine with backup role

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater said he'd be fine with serving in a backup role in his rookie season. Bridgewater missed only three passes all day during organized team activities Thursday, June 5, and marched the team down the field during the two-minute drill. He had some first-team snaps Thursday, but QB Matt Cassel had the majority of the starting repetitions and is expected to enter training camp as the No. 1 quarterback. "Right now, I'm just learning from Matt." Bridgewater said. "He's a veteran right now, and I notice the things that he's doing when he's in the huddle. I'm taking notes from him and Christian also. Those guys have had past success."

Fantasy Tip: The Vikes have no reason to rush Bridgewater into the starting role with Cassel around. We fully expect Cassel to be the starter in Week 1, but Bridgewater has a decent chance of unseating him at some point if Cassel doesn't get the job done.
