Vikings | Adrian Peterson expected to catch more passes

Thu, 20 Feb 2014 10:31:24 -0800

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner said he expects RB Adrian Peterson to catch 50-60 passes out of the backfield in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: If those numbers play out, that would almost double Peterson's catch total from a year ago, and would obviously increase his value in point-per-reception leagues. This is something to monitor as training camp gets underway in the fall to see exactly how he is being used.

Vikings | Leaning on Norv Turner to evaluate QB options

Thu, 20 Feb 2014 10:08:21 -0800

Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said the Vikings will rely on offensive coordinator Norv Turner to help evaluate their options at quarterback for the upcoming season. Minnesota would like to have a veteran quarterback and a young passer, in addition to QB Christian Ponder.

Fantasy Tip: It is anyone's guess who starts the season for Minnesota this year, but their quarterback position doesn't figure to offer much in the way of fantasy value, regardless of who is running the ship.

Vikings | Christian Ponder has chance to win starting job

Sun, 09 Feb 2014 11:42:00 -0800

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner said QB Christian Ponder will be given a legitimate shot to win the starting quarterback job. "I've been impressed with Christian and the things he does in terms of his movement," Turner said. "He moves extremely well on the run. He's made a lot of big plays. The starting point with any quarterback to me is eliminating those (bad) plays. That would be one of our starting points." Ponder is currently the only quarterback the Vikings have under contract.

Vikings | Looking for young QB

Thu, 06 Feb 2014 15:07:46 -0800

Minnesota Vikings new offensive coordinator Norv Turner said the team will search for a young quarterback to lead the team this offseason. "Quarterbacks come from a lot of different spots," Turner said. "A third-rounder wins the Super Bowl and there's some pretty good players who weren't drafted high. I think everybody is in agreement: We're trying to add a young quarterback to the organization. So, you just gotta make sure it's a good one wherever you get him."
