Vikings | Jerome Simpson talks about appeal hearing

Tue, 19 Aug 2014 20:25:46 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Jerome Simpson said Tuesday, Aug. 19, that he told the truth when he met with NFL hearings officer Harold Henderson to appeal a three-game suspension stemming from an arrest for DWI last season.

Fantasy Tip: Even if he wins his appeal, Simpson is likely to have minimal fantasy value this year. He is currently behind Cordarrelle Patterson and Greg Jennings on the depth chart, and being the third receiver on a team that struggles to throw the ball isn't exactly a recipe for success.

Vikings | Jamarca Sanford may not stay atop depth chart

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 23:32:59 -0700

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.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson won't play this weekend

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 15:46:44 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will not play in the team's preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals Saturday, Aug. 16. He played in one series in the team's third preseason game last year, but other than that, he hasn't had a carry in the preseason since 2011.

Fantasy Tip: There's nothing to see here. The Vikes won't put AD in harm's way during the preseason, although he may see a series of action next week, if at all. Peterson remains one of the few options worth considering as your No. 1 overall fantasy pick.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson improving pass catching

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 10:02:19 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson appears to be improving his pass-catching skills. He dropped one pass in practice Monday, Aug. 11, but had some nice catches.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson is already one of the safest selections with one of the top three picks in fantasy drafts. Improving his pass-catching skills would go a long way in making him even more valuable, too, especially in point-per-reception formats.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater struggles in practice

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 10:00:31 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater tossed three interceptions and had two more passes that were almost picked off in practice Monday, Aug. 11. Head coach Mike Zimmer plans to talk with the other coaches to determine how they'll use their quarterbacks in the second preseason game. QB Matt Cassel will start the game after playing just the first series in the first preseason game. Bridgewater played around two quarters and was 6-for-13 with 49 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater's mediocre preseason debut and his struggles in practice have held in check much of the optimism that the Vikings have had for Bridgewater in training camp. It reminds all of those over zealous drafters that Bridgewater is still a rookie, and this is definitely Cassel's job to lose.
