Vikings | Jerick McKinnon wants to be featured back

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 11:16:51 -0800

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent RB Jerick McKinnon said he would like to be a featured back for a team next season.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon likely will not return to the Vikings if he wants to be a No. 1 running back for a team. He may have trouble finding a starting job but would receive interest from several teams looking for a change-of-pace back. McKinnon has a chance to be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy running back in 2018 depending on his role.

Vikings | Case Keenum unsure of team's interest

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 10:53:03 -0800

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Case Keenum said he has not received any indication from the Vikings on if they want to re-sign him this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum is one of three Vikings quarterbacks that will be unrestricted free agents this offseason, but it is not known which quarterback the Vikings will look to re-sign. Keenum finished the regular season with 3,547 yards and 22 touchdowns after taking over the starting job early in the season. He probably will be a starting quarterback for a team in 2018 and should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

Vikings | Dalvin Cook making progress

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 09:52:33 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (knee) said he is able to do some jogging but does not have a timetable for when he will return to football activities.

Fantasy Tip: Cook probably will not do much during offseason workouts but should have a good chance to be ready for the start of the 2018 season. He played well before suffering his injury this season and should have a similar role in 2018. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues next season.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater believes he can start

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 09:29:09 -0800

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater said he views himself as a starting quarterback next season but is not sure if it will be with the Vikings.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater is one of three Vikings quarterbacks that will be free agents this offseason, so he could hit the free-agent market this offseason. He should have a decent chance to find a starting job if he decides to sign with another team. Bridgewater can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if he finds a starting job.

Vikings | Laquon Treadwell shut out

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 20:29:46 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell failed to catch his only target in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: Treadwell managed just 20 catches all season, and he is looking like a massive bust. At this point, the former first-round pick is even a sketchy stash option in dynasty formats.

Vikings | Latavius Murray bottled up

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 20:10:30 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed six times for 18 yards and caught two passes for 11 yards in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: It was a forgettable end to what turned out to be a solid season for Murray. However, Dalvin Cook is in line to return in 2018, so Murray will likely be no more than a handcuff.

Vikings | Adam Thielen quiet in loss

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 19:52:08 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught three passes on nine targets for 28 yards in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: His back injury could have played a role in his poor outing, but the Vikings were never really in a rhythm on offense. Overall, it was an excellent season for Thielen, and he should be a high floor WR2 in 2018, especially in PPR formats.

Vikings | Eight catches for Stefon Diggs

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 19:47:26 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs caught eight passes on 12 targets for 70 yards in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs' best fantasy season was bolstered by eight touchdowns, and the 24-year-old will be in the WR2 mix heading into 2018.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph finds the end zone

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 19:38:54 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph caught one pass, a 25-yard touchdown, in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph saw a significant drop in his reception and yardage totals in 2017, but his eight touchdowns were the second most of his career. He will be a low-end TE1 candidate for 2018.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon totals 126 yards

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 18:50:20 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed 10 times for 40 yards in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Jan. 21, and he added 11 receptions for 86 yards on 12 targets.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon might have played his final game in purple and white, as he heads into the offseason as an impending unrestricted free agent. His fantasy value in 2018 obviously hinges on whether he lands in a favorable situation or not.

Vikings | Case Keenum comes up short

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 18:15:27 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum completed 28 of his 48 pass attempts for 271 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Jan. 21.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum did a good job holding down the fort with Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater missing huge chunks of the season due to injury, and he almost carried them to the Super Bowl. He will head into the offseason as an impending unrestricted free agent. The way he played he might find a starting job in 2018.

Vikings | Case Keenum could be tagged

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 18:13:34 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum could receive the franchise tag, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Fantasy Tip: Minnesota will have some big decisions to make about the quarterback position this offseason. If Keenum does end up back under center to start 2018, he will be worth a look as a QB2.
