Minnesota Vikings WR Jerome Simpson did not start in the Week 12 game against the Seattle Seahawks, even with WR Greg Jennings (Achilles') inactive. Head coach Leslie Frazier used Simpson as the fourth receiver for much of the day, with WR Joe Webb often seeing time ahead of Simpson in three-receiver sets. Simpson was arrested Nov. 9 for drunken driving. "There's no sense in me talking about that now. The decision was made. Simpson was out there on the second play. Circumstances dictated this is what we had to do," Frazier said Sunday, Nov. 17. Simpson made one catch for one yard.

Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier has not yet spelled out the plan publicly, but he has hinted this week that WR Cordarrelle Patterson could start Sunday, Nov. 17, at the Seattle Seahawks ahead of WR Jerome Simpson, who was charged with drunken driving. "They drafted me to play, not ride the bench every snap," Patterson said. "If I start, I start. If I don't, I don't. I'm behind a great guy in Jerome Simpson. Me and him compete with each other just to get better."

Minnesota Vikings WR Jerome Simpson will likely play in Week 11 against the Seattle Seahawks despite being charged with a third-degree driving while intoxicated. However, head coach Leslie Frazier won't say whether Simpson will start in the game. Simpson could also face further discipline for violating the terms of his probation following a September 2011 arrest for a drug-related offense. WR Cordarrelle Patterson could be involved more if the Vikes choose to limit Simpson's availability.
Fantasy Tip: Simpson is a very risky play this weekend and should be considered a flex option at best. Patterson's stock is rising in deeper leagues as WR depth, especially if Simpson is suspended at some point this season.
