Vikings | Sam Bradford expected to start

Thu, 15 Sep 2016 08:15:29 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford is expected to start in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers. Bradford has been adept at learning the offense, and head coach Mike Zimmer may not announce it or inform the team because the news came out that QB Shaun Hill would start last week.

Fantasy Tip: The player this will impact most is Adrian Peterson, who rushed 19 times for 31 yards in Week 1 because Tennessee stacked the box. Peterson has a fruitful week against a yearly questionable Packers run defense. Bradford, however, is merely a QB2 in two-QB leagues.

Vikings | Shaun Hill doesn't work with top unit

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 21:26:27 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill did not take first-team reps with the team in practice Wednesday, Sept. 14. QB Sam Bradford took all of the first-team snaps at practice.

Fantasy Tip: Hill started in Week 1 in the win at Tennessee, but the team's win came due to the defense stepping up and not so much due to Hill's exploits. It appears Hill will be back to a reserve role. He can be cut even in deeper fantasy leagues.

Vikings | Minnesota QB undecided for Week 2

Sun, 11 Sep 2016 22:52:47 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill started and was able to pick up the win in Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans. However, head coach Mike Zimmer said coaches will huddle before deciding whether Hill or QB Sam Bradford will start in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Hill didn't do much statistically, and Bradford has a lot more talent and fantasy upside. For the receivers, Bradford would help their fantasy appeal in Week 2.

Vikings | Shaun Hill expected to start

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 15:50:26 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill is expected to be the starting quarterback for Week 1, according to sources. The team has not announced if Hill or QB Sam Bradford will start the game.

Fantasy Tip: Hill likely will start since Bradford has spent just a week with the team and may need some more time to learn the offense. Hill is not a great fantasy option since team likely will run the ball often in Week 1.

Vikings | Mike Zimmer won't announce starting QB

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 09:27:21 -0700

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer will not publicly announce whether QB Sam Bradford or QB Shaun Hill will start against the Tennessee Titans Sunday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford and Hill aren't in the starting conversation unless your playing in a two-QB league, so in most cases, you can take a wait-and-see approach here. Plus, the Week 1 matchup against Tennessee should prove to be a low-scoring game and unfriendly fantasy setting.

Vikings | Two Minnesota QBs with first-team reps

Mon, 05 Sep 2016 11:58:21 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QBs Sam Bradford and Shaun Hill will both receive first-team repetitions in practice this week. Head coach Mike Zimmer has not officially named a starter for Week 1 yet.

Fantasy Tip: Either Bradford or Hill would make for a cheap, sleeper option in daily formats for Week 1. The Vikings could ride Adrian Peterson pretty heavily, though, as they've done every year. Neither Bradford nor Hill should be regarded as a QB1 in seasonal leagues.

Vikings | Shaun Hill expected to start Week 1

Sun, 04 Sep 2016 08:08:41 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill likely will be the starting quarterback Week 1 against the Tennessee Titans since QB Sam Bradford will only start practicing with the Vikings this week. Bradford may be ready to take over the starting job in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Hill likely will only start for a week or two until Bradford has a solid understanding of the offense. Hill probably will not be asked to throw much against the Titans and will not be a strong fantasy option. Owners in daily fantasy leagues could consider Hill depending on his price.

Vikings | Shaun Hill unlikely for Thursday's game

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 19:14:26 -0700

The Minnesota Vikings are expected to rest QB Shaun Hill for the preseason finale Thursday, Sept. 1, against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: The team likely wants to preserve the presumed starter in the wake of the Teddy Bridgewater season-ending injury, giving newly re-signed Brad Sorensen and the rest of the backups playing time instead.

Vikings | Shaun Hill to shoulder the load?

Tue, 30 Aug 2016 18:10:54 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill is the likely candidate to take over under center with QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) expected to miss the 2016 season due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament and other structural damage. He has never started more than 10 games in any season and he never has reached the postseason.

Fantasy Tip: Hill is a significant downgrade from Bridgewater, and the injury hurts the fantasy appeal of Stefon Diggs, Laquon Treadwell and Kyle Rudolph, among others. Hill is only worth monitoring for the first few games, and certainly only draftable in deeper leagues which require two starting signal callers. Expect the Vikings to also pursue veteran help via trade or free agency.

Vikings | Shaun Hill back at practice

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 22:53:42 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill practiced on Tuesday, Aug. 23, after not participating in either of the club's practices over the weekend. It's unclear if Hill will play on Sunday, Aug. 28, against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Under normal circumstances this wouldn't be noteworthy, but the tight-lipped approach to Teddy Bridgewater's undisclosed shoulder issue makes Hill's status a bit more meaningful. Still, unless Bridgewater is going to miss significant time -- and there's been nothing to suggest he will -- Hill is of zero interest.
