Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater has surgery set

Tue, 06 Sep 2016 06:08:23 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) has surgery scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 8, to repair his torn anterior cruciate ligament and other damage in his left knee, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater is likely to miss a calendar year or more, and the team snatched Sam Bradford from the Philadelphia Eagles. Bradford has a lot of physical talent, but it just hasn't shown up on game day. He's a midrange QB2 that could perform well in spurts if he remains protected.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater placed on IR

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 14:36:48 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Wednesday, Aug. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater will miss the entire 2016 season because of his serious knee injury, and owners will need to monitor the situation to see if he will be ready for the 2017 season. Shaun Hill likely will be the starting quarterback for the Vikings this season but should only be a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater has torn ACL

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 18:09:58 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament and other structural damage as a result of a non-contact injury in practice Tuesday, Aug. 30, and he also has a dislocated knee. An MRI confirmed the injuries. He did not suffer any nerve or arterial damage, however. He will have surgery within the next few days, but is expected to miss the 2016 season.

Fantasy Tip: With the franchise quarterback going down, drop Stefon Diggs and Laquon Treadwell down on your draft sheets, as the quarterback play will be significantly degraded. Adrian Peterson will have to carry a much bigger load in 2016, and that's good news for his fantasy stock, although you can expect teams to stack the box daring the Vikings to pass with whomever they tab as the signal caller. Shaun Hill is likely to take over due to his knowledge of the offense, since he is the in-house guy, but expect Mark Sanchez, Colin Kaepernick or another veteran free-agent to get a call as well.

Vikings | Significant injury for Teddy Bridgewater

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 14:17:42 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) suffered a significant injury to his left knee in practice Tuesday, Aug. 30, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. The extent of the injury is not yet known, however, as Bridgewater is still undergoing testing.

Fantasy Tip: One can expect Bridgewater to miss a good deal of time this season. This is Shaun Hill's team to quarterback right now, but look for the Vikings to add someone. As far as Hill's fantasy value, he is really only viable in good matchups and/or as a bye-week replacement.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater goes down in practice

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 12:09:23 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (undisclosed) went down on a non-contact play during practice Tuesday, Aug. 30. Practice was subsequently called off as trainers tended to the quarterback.

Fantasy Tip: Non-contact injuries are never a good sign; it sounds like it could be something serious for Minnesota's starting thrower. Shaun Hill is a capable backup, but he doesn't have the fantasy appeal that Bridgewater does and would only be worth a bye-week start in a good matchup. Stay tuned for updates on Bridgewater's status.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater's shoulder holds up

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 18:42:18 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (shoulder) completed 12 of his 16 passes for 161 yards and a touchdown in a 23-10 preseason win over the San Diego Chargers Sunday, Aug. 28, and he said his throwing shoulder felt great.

Fantasy Tip: Although Bridgewater appears healthy, his ceiling is limited by Minnesota's run-heavy offense. He is a mediocre QB2 option.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater expected to play

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 09:27:06 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (shoulder) is participating in pregame warmups and is expected to play in the preseason game against the San Diego Chargers Sunday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater dealt with a sore shoulder earlier in training camp but appears to be fine. He probably will improve on his status from 2015 but should still be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback since Adrian Peterson will continue to see a lot of work.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater expects to play

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 14:16:30 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (shoulder) said he expects to play in the preseason game against the San Diego Chargers Sunday, Aug. 28. Bridgewater did not say much about his shoulder injury.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known how much playing time Bridgewater will receive if he is active for the game, but it would be a good sign if he is able to play. He probably should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues since the Vikings are more of a running team and will not throw as much as other teams.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater resumes throwing

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 15:24:35 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (shoulder) threw during team drills Tuesday, Aug. 23, although he was apparently throwing shorter passes for the most part. Head coach Mike Zimmer said he didn't want to play Bridgewater last week for risk of Bridgewater getting hurt, adding that he would use caution if Bridgewater did have a shoulder issue. It's unclear if Bridgewater will play in Week 3 of the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: A keen eye will have to be kept on Bridgewater leading up to the regular season. His numbers weren't off the chart last year, but he did enough to achieve a playoff berth. He doesn't do enough to get a playoff berth for fantasy teams, however, and should only be drafted as a backup.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater limited on Saturday

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 17:05:51 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater was on the field but did not attempt any throws at practice on Saturday, Aug. 20. Head coach Mike Zimmer told reporters he had "no concern" about his signal-caller's health.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmer also told reporters Bridgewater "could have played Thursday, but I decided not to play him" in reference to the fact his starting quarterback sat out the team's road exhibition win against the Seattle Seahawks. For now, owners should take Zimmer at his word and consider this a minor issue while also remembering Shaun Hill would be the starter if the situation gets worse. Bridgewater is a mostly unexciting QB2 at the moment in most leagues.
