Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater to continue ascent?

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 19:33:43 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater is expected to continue to improve, according to head coach Mike Zimmer, who doesn't agree with the opinion of anonymous personnel guys for other teams who are expecting a step back in Year 2. "I know this kid is a great competitor. The things that he did great in college (and) he did great in the NFL (last) year, were two-minute situations, when the competitive things were there. That's not going to change," Zimmer said Monday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater really showed progress in the second half of the season, and the addition of Mike Wallace on the outside, as well as the presence of Adrian Peterson in the backfield, will really open the field up for Bridgewater. He might not quite be a QB1 in standard fantasy formats initially, but by season's end he could have the tools to be a Top 10 fantasy option at his position.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater among most accurate

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 19:56:56 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater was rated the No. 3 quarterback in accuracy percentage and No. 1 in accuracy under pressure last season by ProFootballFocus.com.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater made major strides toward the end of his rookie year, and with new weapons in the passing game and the return of Adrian Peterson to the backfield, he could end up being a solid backup in seasonal leagues in 2015.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater improved late in '14

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 13:44:08 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater was more much decisive in the Vikings' final six games of Bridgewater's 2014 rookie season, according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. Turner said the early part of the season was especially trying for Bridgewater, and the team as a whole, with changes at quarterback and offensive line and with RB Adrian Peterson not playing. Going into 2015, Bridgewater will have a full season of experience under his belt, he'll have Adrian Peterson back, he'll have a healthy offensive line, he'll have a healthy TE Kyle Rudolph returning and he'll have a new weapon in WR Mike Wallace.

Fantasy Tip: The future looks bright for Bridgewater and the Vikings, but Bridgewater himself has said they need to temper expectations a little bit and focus on getting better before the seasons commences. If all goes as it should for Bridgewater and Minnesota, he could end up as a top-15 fantasy quarterback.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater talks 2015 season

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 13:03:45 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater said the Vikings still have a long way to go in order to fulfill expectations. "Right now, we're not as good as what we think," Bridgewater said. "We know that the ceiling is very high and the expectation level is very high, not only for the players, but [for the coaches] also. We know what's being asked of us, but we have a long way to go."

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater had an impressive rookie campaign even without the services of Adrian Peterson. With defenses forced to more respect the threat of Minnesota's running back, it should be enable the passing game to open up more. Furthermore, Bridgewater has a solid corps of pass-catchers at his dispense, including newly acquired WR Mike Wallace, WR Charles Johnson, TE Kyle Rudolph and WR Cordarrelle Patterson. Bridgewater's ceiling is in QB15 territory.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson hoping to help QB

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 20:38:30 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he hopes his presence will make life easier for QB Teddy Bridgewater in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater finished with the best Total QBR among rookie starters last year, and the return of Peterson and addition of Mike Wallace should only help his growth. Bridgewater should be a solid mid-range QB2 in 2015, and he could venture into QB1 territory against certain matchups.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater working with new WR

Fri, 29 May 2015 16:23:22 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater said he has been spending extra time with WR Mike Wallace and working on the routes they used during practice.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater had some solid outings in the second half of the 2014 season and is looking to improve his play. Bridgewater could be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback this season and could be a starting option against certain opponents. Wallace will be a start for the Vikings and could have more fantasy value if the team throws more deep passes. Wallace could be an option in the middle rounds of drafts.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater working with teammates

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 10:23:26 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater is working out in California with Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph, RB Jerick McKinnon, WR Charles Johnson and TE Brandon Bostick. McKinnon and Rudolph are rooming together at Rudolph's Newport Beach, Calif., home and are taking a no-nonsense approach to their training. Rudolph organized the group event.

Fantasy Tip: The chemistry-building possibilities are encouraging, but any fantasy advice to be gleaned from this situation is realistically useless without knowing the fate of Vikings RB Adrian Peterson. The offense goes as he does.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater bulking up

Tue, 27 Jan 2015 07:07:52 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater is working on bulking up this offseason. "We know where he's going to be, what he's going to be doing, in terms of lifting," offensive coordinator Norv Turner said. "He's never going to be a real big man, but he's going to be a guy that eventually is 220-225. He played most of the year about 212, so continue to work and get stronger and put on a few more pounds, and he will gradually, but that strength, I don't want people to think I'm talking about getting his arm stronger, no."

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater will be worth a flyer as a mid-to-low-tier QB2 in traditional leagues in 2015.

Vikings | OC has confidence in Teddy Bridgewater

Fri, 02 Jan 2015 16:23:45 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater has the necessary arm strength to succeed in the NFL, according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. "Teddy has all the key characteristics to be an upper echelon quarterback in this league," Turner said. "He really impressed me with how he played this year and how he continued to improve. He's got great vision, he's got great presence in the pocket. He doesn't get rattled, he's extremely accurate. All the things you're looking for in a quarterback."

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater had his moments this season as the Vikings often had to pass frequently to play catch-up. Heading into 2015, Bridgewater could be a real nice surprise as a backup fantasy QB with upside, especially if Adrian Peterson returns in the backfield.
