Vikings | Mike Zimmer not going anywhere

Fri, 26 May 2017 11:09:13 -0700

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer vowed Friday, May 26, his ongoing eye issues will not prevent him from continuing his coaching career. Zimmer had his latest eye surgery - his eighth - on May 17. He is expected to return to Minnesota on June 4 to visit with local doctors before a decision is made as to whether or not he will attend OTAs later that week. "I'll be back shortly. One eye or two, it really doesn't matter. I'm going to be back. So we can put the retiring thing or whatever to bed quickly," Zimmer said.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson earning approval

Mon, 12 Sep 2016 09:36:58 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has garnered an offensive role by merit, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson didn't exactly set the world on fire with five offensive snaps in Week 1, but those five snaps were five more than first-round rookie Laquon Treadwell. He ended up with two offensive touches and probably isn't going to see many more than that in the near future long as Adrian Peterson and Stefon Diggs stay healthy. Owners may want to consider adding him to their watch list, but his upside in this offense as things stand at the moment is limited.

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.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater improving on deep ball

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 21:09:09 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater has shown "plenty of improvement" the last couple of months, especially throwing the deep ball, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. "It's just finishing throws. (We) put the tape on of last year, and there were a bunch of throws where I probably wasn't finishing," Bridgewater said.

Fantasy Tip: The improvements come a year too late for Mike Wallace, who openly complained about needing "a better quarterback" about the same time he signed with the Baltimore Ravens this offseason. The deep passing game has been a sore subject to say the least during Bridgewater's two-year run as the Vikings' quarterback, so Stefon Diggs and rookie Laquon Treadwell figure to benefit greatly if this improvement sticks. Nevertheless, Bridgewater figures to remain an unexciting QB2 in a run-heavy offense this season.

Vikings | Mike Zimmer, Adrian Peterson speak

Sun, 31 May 2015 23:30:08 -0700

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer and RB Adrian Peterson have apparently cleared the air of their differences. Although Peterson still has reservations about returning to the Vikings, his relationship with Zimmer is strong.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson should be a solid RB1 selection even though he has been sidelined for one entire season. It will be even better if Peterson can smooth things over so this isn't a distraction entering 2015.
