Fantasy Tip: Diggs missed the team's Week 5 game because of the injury but did have a bye week to recover. Owners will need to check later in the week to see if Diggs has a chance to play in Week 7. He is one of the team's top targets in the passing game and should be in starting lineups if he is active.

Fantasy Tip: It's possible this is purely a precautionary measure, and that Diggs will be on the field when the team holds a more formal practice on Wednesday. Still, it's a bit concerning. Monitor Diggs' status as the week progresses.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson's injury cost him time in the return game, as he was taken off that role, but he was able to play a big role in the offense. He'll have two weeks to rest with a bye in Week 6.

Fantasy Tip: Johnson failed to take advantage of the absence of Stefon Diggs, and it appears he has tumbled down the depth chart behind Jarius Wright and the re-emerging Cordarrelle Patterson. There is no reason to keep Johnson rostered in most fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson has played himself back into a role on offense with his solid practicing and good play on special teams. He might have seen an increase in targets with Stefon Diggs sidelined, but it appears Patterson has passed both Jarius Wright and Charles Johnson in the pecking order in Minnesota. He isn't a bad stash option for Week 7 once the team returns from a bye.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon was outperformed by Matt Asiata, and could have played himself into a timeshare or a No. 2 role with the poor performance. The team returns in Week 7 after a bye next week.
Sun, 09 Oct 2016 16:03:08 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Asiata outperformed Jerick McKinnon, and this could be a situation worth monitoring heading into Week 7 after the team's bye. Asiata could have bought himself more touches after the solid performance, making him worth a look as an RB3 in two weeks.
