Vikings | Kyle Rudolph on track to play

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 17:17:56 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph should receive a decent amount of targets in Week 3 but is only a low-end No. 1 tight end in deeper leagues.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon expected to play

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 17:11:14 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (toe) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 23, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon will share work with Matt Asiata but is expected to receive a majority of the playing time. He should be considered a No. 2 running back or a flex option in most fantasy leagues.

Vikings | Stefon Diggs not on injury report

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 17:10:28 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (groin) is not on the injury report for Week 3 even though he missed practice Friday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs appears to be ready to play in Week 3 and should be a focal point in the passing game. He is a bit of an injury risk because of the injury, but he should still be considered a No. 2 receiver in most leagues.

Vikings | Stefon Diggs absent from practice Friday

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 12:24:55 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (groin) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 23, due to a groin injury. Head coach Mike Zimmer called the absence "precautionary" and the expectation is that Diggs will play Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs appears to be in no danger of missing Week 3 and is a prime DFS target this week. The league's leading receiver through two weeks is coming off a nine-catch, 182-yard, one-score demolition of a Green Bay Packers' secondary that was missing Sam Shields and should face similar competition - rookie James Bradberry and slot corner Robert McClain - for the bulk of Sunday's contest. Diggs is a high-end WR2 at worst in this matchup.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson officially placed on IR

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 12:17:57 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) was officially placed on injured reserve Friday, September 23.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson is expected to miss the rest of the regular season. In his absence, Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon will control the Minnesota backfield, with the latter having a considerably higher ceiling. Asiata, though, has value, too, as he could vulture numerous touchdowns from up close like he did in 2014 when Peterson missed all but one game.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon a full go

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 19:03:44 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (toe) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon is expected to be the lead back in the wake of Adrian Peterson's injury. However, a tough matchup against Carolina in Week 3 makes him a flex candidate rather than a RB2.

Vikings | No limitations for Kyle Rudolph

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 19:00:13 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (groin) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 22.

Fantasy Tip: A matchup with a stingy Carolina defense will cap Rudolph's upside in Week 3. At best, he is a low-end TE1 in 12-team leagues.

Vikings | Thursday practice report for Minnesota

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 18:49:17 -0700

Minnesota Vikings DT Sharrif Floyd (knee) did not practice Thursday, Sept. 22. CB Xavier Rhodes (knee) and TE MyCole Pruitt (knee) were limited participants, and DE Danielle Hunter (knee), LB Eric Kendricks (ankle) and FB Zach Line (neck) were full participants.

Vikings | Stefon Diggs honored for performance

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 16:03:54 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week for Week 2 after registering career highs of 182 receiving yards on nine receptions in the team's victory over the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs began his impressive ascension last season, and now with Sam Bradford under center, it's possible he could reach even greater heights. After all, as proven again in his first game as a Viking, Bradford loves to utilize his slot receivers, which should ensure Diggs has plenty of work in the weeks and months ahead. He has the potential to establish himself as an upper echelon WR2 this season.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson has surgery

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 07:14:32 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (knee) had successful surgery to repair his torn lateral meniscus in his knee Thursday, Sept. 22. There were no additional injuries in or surrounding the knee joint.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson is expected to be out until at least December, but he could come back quicker, or he could be done for the fantasy season. Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata are expected to share the work, and they're flex considerations against the Carolina Panthers.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson didn't tear LCL?

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 14:28:01 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings officials say that RB Adrian Peterson (knee) does not have a torn lateral collateral ligament, but other sources have said that he does have a torn ligament.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson is still expected to miss several months because of his torn meniscus, but he would need more time to recover if he has a torn lateral collateral ligament. Jerick McKinnon is expected to receive a majority of the work at running back with Peterson out and can be at least a flex option in fantasy leagues.
