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.

Vikings | Adam Thielen leads passing attack

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 returns to game

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 19:05:30 -0800

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (ribs) returned for the start of the second half against the Dallas Cowboys Thursday, Dec. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford appears to have avoided a serious injury, but his value is limited to leagues that start two quarterbacks.

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.

Vikings | Adam Thielen not on injury report

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 15:36:48 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (shoulder) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen has posted at least 50 yards in five of his last seven games and as two touchdowns in his last three games. He should see a decent amount of targets against the Dallas Cowboys and could be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Vikings | Sam Bradford ready to play

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 15:26:24 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (ankle) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford has struggled at times this season and has thrown at least two touchdowns in only on one of his last six games. Owners in most leagues can find a better option to start and can pass on Bradford.

Vikings | Stefon Diggs listed as questionable

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 15:20:51 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Nov. 30, but is listed as questionable for Week 13.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs appears to have a solid chance to play against the Dallas Cowboys, but owners will need to check the inactives list before deciding on their lineups. Diggs will be the No. 1 target in the passing game if he plays and should be considered a No. 2 receiver in most leagues.

Vikings | Adam Thielen fully practices

Tue, 29 Nov 2016 12:05:11 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (shoulder) participated fully in practice Tuesday, Nov. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen's fantasy value decreases this week with the likely return of Stefon Diggs. That doesn't necessarily mean he should be benched, though. He has found the endzone twice in his last three games and at least deserves consideration as a flex start.
