Vikings | Kyle Rudolph gobbles up two scores

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 13:30:36 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph scored both of the Vikings' receiving touchdowns Thursday, Nov. 23, catching four passes for 63 yards in total.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph nearly doubled his touchdowns just in this game; he had only caught three on the season. There hasn't been enough love to go around between Rudolph, Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, but Rudolph made his catches matter today. He'll remain a TE1 play as long as he's healthy.

Vikings | Latavius Murray shows up in ground game

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 13:26:36 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray notched 20 carries for 84 yards and a touchdown Thursday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Give Murray some butter 'cause he's on a roll, now scoring four times in his last three outings. His main value is in standard leagues as he has only caught seven passes on the year. Still, he needs to be in the RB2 conversation going forward.

Vikings | Case Keenum carves up Detroit

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 13:22:59 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum totaled 302 yards and three touchdowns in a Thanksgiving win versus the Detroit Lions Thursday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum made a strong case for keeping the starting job away from Teddy Bridgewater. He has done nothing to force the Vikings' hand in making Bridgewater the starter, but he has forced us to consider him as a weekly starter.

Vikings | Case Keenum to draw another start

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 10:03:08 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum was confirmed as the starting quarterback for the team's Week 12 Thanksgiving Day game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: It seems only a matter of time before head coach Mike Zimmer makes the move to Teddy Bridgewater considering he is addressing and answering this question every week, but it would be foolish to pull the plug on Keenum until he gives the Vikings a reason to do so and especially on a short week. Keenum remains firmly in the fantasy QB2 discussion for now.

Vikings | Stefon Diggs posts four receptions

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 15:43:47 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs managed four catches for 32 yards on six targets in Week 11 agaisnt the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs has four or more grabs in each of his past three outings since returning from a groin injury, but he has visited the end zone just once while averaging 45.7 yards per game. Something's missing, and perhaps he isn't back to 100 percent just yet. But he remains a useful WR3 or flex fantasy option, especially in PPR leagues, heading into Thanksgiving against the Lions in Week 12.

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 15:43:14 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph hauled in five receptions for 58 yards on seven targets in the Week 11 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph remains a top-notch fantasy option, especially in PPR formats, with five or more receptions in six consecutive outings. He'll look to keep it rolling in Week 12 against the Lions on Thanksgiving.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon totals 19 touches

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 15:41:57 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed 14 times for 48 yards in the Week 11 game against the Los Angeles Rams and he added five receptions for 12 yards on seven targets.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon basically saw an even split in carries with Latavius Murray, but the latter was far more efficient with 6.3 yards per rush and two touchdowns to McKinnon's 3.4 yards per tote and no scores. McKinnon remains more of a RB3 or flex option, especially in PPR formats, heading into Week 12 at Detroit on Thanksgiving.

Vikings | Latavius Murray punches two in

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 15:41:24 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed 15 times for 95 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 11 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Murray started out slow, but he has emerged as the top back in the Twin Cities. The former Raiders back has 15 or more carries in each of his past five games while finding the end zone four times in the past four outings. He'll look to keep it going on Thanksgiving against the Lions in Week 12.
