Minnesota Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd (knee) may be unable to resume his playing career due to nerve damage in his knee suffered from surgery in Sept. 2016. Floyd said this spring he was unable to run, and the team doesn't think he'll be able to return.

Vikings | Minnesota tempted to start Teddy Bridgewater

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 11:38:24 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater was reportedly very close to overtaking Case Keenum for the starting job in large part because the Vikings view Bridgewater as "their franchise," according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.

Fantasy Tip: What it means is that Keenum will be on the shortest of leashes despite throwing for four touchdowns in Week 10. The Vikings need to be able to make a decision on him as he can become a free agent after the season. Minnesota knows Keenum is a placeholder at best; what the team needs to find out is if Bridgewater is more than what he showed in a limited offense built around Adrian Peterson in 2014 and 2015. He's worth stashing in all fantasy leagues.

Vikings | Case Keenum will remain starter

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 13:20:17 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum will continue to start despite QB Teddy Bridgewater being available to return.

Fantasy Tip: It would have been difficult to bench Keenum for Bridgewater given the circumstances. The Vikings are rolling on offense, Keenum is playing well and they're riding a five-game winning streak. Why mess up the momentum? Even so, Keenum can't be trusted as QB1 this week in a tough matchup with the Los Angeles Rams.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph racks up five balls

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 17:52:47 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph posted five receptions for 37 yards on seven targets in Week 10 against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: The catch total was nice, and he is always a strong PPR fantasy option. However, he isn't as valuable in standard leagues, especially when he doesn't find the end zone. The Vikings host the Rams in Week 12.

Vikings | Stefon Diggs posts 78 yards, TD

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 17:52:18 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs posted four receptions for 78 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Week 10 against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs returned Oct. 29 against the Browns in London, but he didn't look 100 percent. However, he certainly looked a lot more spry in this one, averaging 19.5 yards per reception, or back to his normal self. He remains a solid WR2 in all fantasy leagues heading into Week 12 against the high-flying Rams.

Vikings | Adam Thielen has a big afternoon

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 17:51:49 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen posted eight receptions for a season-high 166 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets in Week 10 against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Many forget, but Thielen had 202 yards with two touchdowns last Christmas Eve in Green Bay, so he has had plenty of huge stat lines before. His previous best this season was 157 yards in the open against New Orleans. Still, he remains more of a WR2 in PPR leagues, and a borderline WR2/WR3 in standard play.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon goes nowhere fast

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 17:51:19 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed 10 times for just 32 yards in Week 10 against the Washington Redskins and he added two receptions for 15 yards.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon was outgained badly by Latavius Murray and his opportunity with Dalvin Cook sidelined might be slipping away. He remains nothing more than an RB3 or flex option in most fantasy formats right now.

Vikings | Latavius Murray posts 68 yards, TD

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 17:50:43 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed 17 times for 68 yards with a touchdown in the Week 10 game against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Murray has posted 12 or more rushes in each of his past five games, but he really has just one big game during the span. The good news is that he averaged 4.0 yards per tote in this one, his second-best average of the season, and he scored a touchdown for the second time in three games. He remains more of a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option in most formats.

Vikings | Case Keenum tosses four TDs

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 17:24:52 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum completed 21 of his 29 pass attempts for 304 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 10 win against the Washington Redskins.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum was sharp, and looked a lot more comfortable with Stefon Diggs also back at 100 percent, too. Most of his big plays went to Adam Thielen, however, as the two have developed a nice little rapport.

Vikings | Everson Griffen to play, eyes record

Sat, 11 Nov 2017 19:16:33 -0800

Minnesota Vikings DE Everson Griffen (foot) is listed as questionable to face the Washington Redskins in Week 10, but head coach Mike Zimmer said he expects him to play. Griffin is currently tied for the franchise record with eight consecutive games with a sack, and his 10 sacks are tied for third in the NFL.
