Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has informed head coach Mike Zimmer that he will not attend the optional practices that begin Tuesday, May 26, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.
Fantasy Tip: Peterson is trying to force a trade, but a deal doesn't appear to be coming. While he may not like his current situation, it would be a major surprise if he went as far as to sit out games during the regular season. Happy or not, Peterson is a RB1 option in 2015.

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner has opened up the playbook to give receivers more chances to make explosive plays, head coach Mike Zimmer said at rookie minicamp.
Fantasy Tip: If Turner does open things up a bit, it would be good news for Teddy Bridgewater and the receiving corps. However, the talk of a more pass-friendly playbook may or may not amount to much when the season begins. For now, the fantasy value of Bridgewater and the rest of the Vikings' offensive players remains unchanged.

Despite throwing four interceptions in a 30-7 loss to the New England Patriots Sunday, Sept. 14, Minnesota Vikings QB Matt Cassel will remain the starter. "As I've said before, I'm going to hold the quarterback position just like every position here to the same standard," Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said. "And I also said I wasn't going to have a quick hook. Matt needs to play better. It's pretty obvious he needs to play better."
Fantasy Tip: You may want to stay away from Cassel in FantasyScore contests as he could get the hook if the Vikings continue losing. His performance does not merit the cost (which was $5,200 in Week 2). Spend the money on a quarterback of similar price who isn't likely to get the quick hook, like New York Jets QB Geno Smith ($5,200).

After starting the season sharing No. 1 duties with Josh Robinson, Minnesota Vikings CB Captain Munnerlyn appears to have won the starting left corner job outright. Robinson has missed the past two weeks with hamstring issues and coach Mike Zimmer is losing patience with him.

Because the Minnesota Vikings have a healthy competition going at strong safety, SS Jamarca Sanford may not stay atop the depth chart. Vikings coach Mike Zimmer wants to divvy up the repetitions each player gets during the upcoming exhibition game to see who can handle the job.

Minnesota Vikings QB Matt Cassel could play the entire first half of the team's second preseason game, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.
