Vikings | Adrian Peterson may not play again in 2016

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 11:05:59 -0800

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) said he will only return this season if the Vikings are still in playoff contention.

Fantasy Tip: The Vikings have lost six of their last seven games, so there is a chance that Peterson sits out the rest of the season. He may see limited snaps if he does return and could be at least a flex option in some leagues.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson running, cutting

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 09:56:09 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) said Wednesday, Dec. 7, that he has begun running and cutting, and he expects to get back sometime this season.

Fantasy Tip: It might be too late for him to be a factor in fantasy, but the potential is still there if you can afford the roster spot.

Vikings | Harrison Smith's season likely over

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 06:17:09 -0800

Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings FS Harrison Smith (ankle) is likely lost for the season with a Grade 3 high ankle sprain, according to a source. The source said Smith eventually could need surgery. For now, the plan is for doctors to evaluate him on a week-to-week basis. There is hope Smith could return to play late in the regular season, perhaps putting off surgery, if that is deemed his best option for long-term recovery.

Vikings | Stefon Diggs busy in return

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 21:41:55 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs returned from a one-game absence and caught all eight of his targets for 59 yards in a 17-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs has caught eight or more passes in four of his last five games, and he should continue to be a strong WR3 with WR2 upside in PPR formats. He is an inviting matchup with Jacksonville on tap in Week 14.

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 21:24:14 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen finished with seven catches for a game-high 86 yards in a 17-15 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen has logged 15 catches on 20 targets over the last two games, and the chemistry he has with Sam Bradford is undeniable. He is a viable WR3 option in PPR formats.

Vikings | Sam Bradford helped off

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 18:46:10 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (undisclosed) was helped off the field against the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Dec. 1. He was replaced by QB Shaun Hill.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford took a hard shot and appeared to be in pain as he walked off the field. Given his injury history, the situation needs to be monitored.

Vikings | Stefon Diggs active for TNF

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 17:02:04 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (knee) is active for the team's Week 13 contest Thursday, Dec. 1, against the Dallas Cowboys.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs has decisively become quarterback Sam Bradford's favorite target, so it's safe to get him back in starting lineups everywhere. Unfortunately, this will hurt those who were hoping to ride Adam Thielen another week, as his value goes down significantly with Diggs back in uniform.

Vikings | Stefon Diggs expected to play

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 10:13:13 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (knee) is expected to play in the team's Week 13 game even though he is listed as questionable for the game, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs missed the previous game because of the injury but appears to be ready for his normal workload in Week 13. He should see plenty of targets against the Dallas Cowboys and can be a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for owners.
