|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.

|Vikings | Adrian Peterson not attending OTAs|
Sun, 24 May 2015 18:16:25 -0700
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.

|Vikings | Norv Turner opening up offense|
Sun, 17 May 2015 19:39:36 -0700
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.

Minnesota Vikings C John Sullivan (concussion) is still in the testing phase to be cleared for a concussion, but he has not been cleared to this point. Head coach Mike Zimmer thinks Sullivan will be ready for the team's Week 8 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

|Vikings | Matt Cassel to remain starter|
Sun, 14 Sep 2014 23:30:45 -0700
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).
