Vikings | More receiving for Adrian Peterson?

Tue, 31 May 2016 17:13:24 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson could be more involved in the passing game this season, particularly in shotgun formation, according to ESPN.com's Ben Goessling. Peterson said he'd like to improve as a pass-catcher and has been working in that area this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson has held his own in the passing game throughout his career, but he hasn't been as effective as he can be in that area, either. If he is used more as a pass-catcher then he'll be even more valuable in PPR leagues, of course. He's a mid-range RB1 in both standard and PPR formats.

Vikings | Bridgewater impressed with Laquon Treadwell

Wed, 18 May 2016 10:36:22 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater has been impressed with WR Laquon Treadwell, the Vikings' first-round draft pick this year. "He's been here with us for two days now, and he's been looking good," Bridgewater added. "I'm not qualified to judge players and things like that, but from what I've been seeing, I've been pretty impressed."

Fantasy Tip: Treadwell doesn't have tons of speed, but he's very physical and wins a lot of 50-50 balls. It remains to be seen how Bridgewater and Treadwell will gel, but the rookie wideout has an incredible opportunity to make a big impact immediately, which makes him a WR4 with upside.

Vikings | Laquon Treadwell signs his rookie deal

Thu, 12 May 2016 12:24:05 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell signed his four-year rookie contract, including a fifth-year option Thursday, May 12.

Fantasy Tip: Treadwell is a high-floor, low-ceiling rookie because of his likelihood of earning a prominent role in the offense, but his average athleticism and Minnesota's conservative attack limit his upside. Target Treadwell as a bench receiver with upside to top out as a flex option.

Vikings | Laquon Treadwell fitting in nicely

Mon, 09 May 2016 22:19:17 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell is expected to step in and become the team's go-to receiver. He is expected to serve in a major role this season, and he was drafted in part because he already excels in some of the routes the team frequently uses.

Fantasy Tip: Treadwell is worth a look as a WR4/5 or flex fantasy option in seasonal leagues, and he is a must-have in keeper formats. Just be sure to have plenty of depth on hand, as there can occasionally be growing pains with rookies.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson may play in preseason

Fri, 06 May 2016 14:26:06 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he may receive some work during the preseason. "I feel like getting out there and playing a little bit," Peterson said. "It's something that once that time comes around, I'll have a better feel for, like, 'Hey, I need to get out there just to kind of get the legs moving and get the pads (on) a little bit.' I can tell you, though, I'm definitely more itching towards playing a little more in the preseason than I have the past seven, eight years." Peterson has not received a carry in any of the last four preseasons.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson probably would receive only a handful of touches this preseason if he plays because the team wants to make sure he is healthy for the regular season. Adrian Peterson is one of the best running backs in the league and should be in the conversation for the No. 1 overall pick in fantasy drafts.
