Vikings | Christian Ponder has done well

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 20:17:34 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QBs Teddy Bridgewater and Matt Cassel saw a majority of the snaps during spring workouts, but QB Christian Ponder has a chance to start, and head coach Mike Zimmer claims it will be a fair competition. "Actually, I think Christian has done a very good job in the time that we've had him and how much he has improved in that amount of time," Zimmer said. "We're going to give everyone a fair shot, and preseason games will help determine it. We want someone who is going to take care of the football, lead the team in the right direction and when called upon be able to win football games."

Vikings | Chad Greenway could start at MLB

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 20:17:07 -0700

Minnesota Vikings LB Chad Greenway could be used as the starting middle linebacker, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. "It's a possibility. We keep working him in there. We're just trying to figure out the best 11 players we can and then figure out where the rest of the guys are going to fit," Zimmer said. "It's not out of the question, but time will tell a little bit more on that."

Vikings | Will try not to overload Anthony Barr

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 20:16:36 -0700

Minnesota Vikings LB Anthony Barr was with the team for just a few days during offseason workouts due to NFL rules. Head coach Mike Zimmer is eager to see what he can do, but the team does not want to throw too much at him. "Yeah, obviously a lot because we only had him for four or five days. So that part, how much can (he) progress within the system, how much he can handle without us overloading him mentally?," Zimmer said.

Vikings | Sharrif Floyd needs to relax

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 20:15:58 -0700

Minnesota Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd had a good offseason, but head coach Mike Zimmer thinks the defensive tackle is trying to be too fine. "Sharrif has a lot of ability. Right now, he's trying so hard to be perfect on every single snap," Zimmer said. "He just needs to relax and let it free-flow a little bit more."

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson to remain on kickoffs

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 20:14:58 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson will remain on kickoff returns despite an expanded role in the offense this season. "We want our best players to get their hands on the ball as much as possible. We're not going to keep him from returning kicks because he is such a dangerous weapon there," head coach Mike Zimmer said Wednesday, July 23. "He's been a very hard worker, he has improved his route running since we've been here and things are going to change for these guys in training camp when we are able to start playing bump-and-run."

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners are never thrilled to see their receiver used on kickoff returns, especially if they're in a format which does not reward individual return yardage. There is a risk of injury with no reward. However, don't shy away from Patterson despite the risk, as he is a player with a ton of offensive upside. Use a pick in the neighborhood of Rounds 4 though 6 on Patterson and you will not be sorry.
