Vikings | Kyle Rudolph studying video

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 23:50:03 -0700

Updating a previous item, Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph has studied videos of past tight ends offensive coordinator Norv Turner has worked with before.

Fantasy Tip: If Rudolph takes time like this to look at how Turner operates his offense, that's a good sign. The team's quarterback situation will determine how the receivers fare in 2014, but if the passing game excels and uses the tight end more often then Rudolph could bear watching.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson has high expectations

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 12:49:59 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has high expectations for the 2014 season, thinking he could be a top-five playmaker at wide receiver. "I'm going to be a top-5 playmaker," Patterson said. "I'm a playmaker, I like to make plays. Like I tell them, just get the ball in my hands I feel like I'm special with it. I just like to do special things with the ball."

Fantasy Tip: There is a lot to be excited about with Patterson going into 2014. He should be considered a WR2 with an extremely high ceiling.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph slims down

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 11:55:51 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph has slimmed down this offseason, dropping about 15 pounds. "It was more of just a focus on my diet in February and March, versus, you are out in California, you work out every day, so you feel like you can eat whatever you want," Rudolph said. "Nothing really changes, because you make up for it with the workouts, but when I really focused on eating lean meats, eating the salads, you see the results."

Vikings | OC praises QBs

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 10:06:42 -0700

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner has been very happy with QBs Matt Cassel, Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Ponder heading up to training camp. "We've got a really, really good group," he said, explaining that it won't be hard to parcel out snaps in the apparent three-headed battle. Cassel is expected to be the starter, but Turner has praised Bridgewater for his arm strength and quick learning.

Fantasy Tip: Turner's vertical passing scheme is usually good news for his quarterbacks. However, the vet Cassel is unlikely to be a difference-maker for your fantasy squad as anything more than a midrange QB2. Bridgewater is expected to eventually take this job.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon impresses Adrian Peterson

Sat, 05 Jul 2014 07:20:56 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he was impressed by RB Jerick McKinnon. "He's pretty impressive and there's not too many guys who impress me like that, especially rookies coming in," Peterson said. "He's been able to do some real good things in the offense, picking it up well and just his running style."

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson improving as a receiver

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 20:47:28 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson is improving as a receiver, according to QB Matt Cassel. "I just think his route-running and his ability to recognize defense" Cassel said. "I think that's huge for him, and any receiver, as you move forward."

Fantasy Tip: Patterson's natural athleticism is off the charts, and he flashed his big-play ability at times as a rookie last year. If he can begin to master the nuances of the WR position to go along with his physical tools, he could become a special player. For now, consider him a WR2 with a high ceiling for fantasy purposes.

Thu, 03 Jul 2014 16:26:51 -0700

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon's versatility excites team

Wed, 02 Jul 2014 09:58:03 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon will be asked to do a little bit of everything in his rookie season on offense and special teams. The Vikings love his versatility as a complement to RBs Adrian Peterson and Matt Asiata. McKinnon was a quarterback, running back and kick returner in college. He's also looked like a natural pass catcher in offseason workouts.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson impressing new teammate

Thu, 26 Jun 2014 20:43:16 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has impressed CB Captain Munnerlyn this offseason. "The time we played them, he was nothing like he is now,'' Munnerlyn said. "I told him, 'The time we played you, I'm glad we caught you early.' Because if we hadn't have caught him early, he was tearing people up at the end up the year. He's really growing as a receiver, and I'm seeing it with my own two eyes.'' Munnerlyn played for the Carolina Panthers last year.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson could be elevated

Mon, 23 Jun 2014 06:50:06 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings said the team plans to showcase WR Cordarrelle Patterson this season. Jennings hinted that Patterson could overtake him as the No. 1 wide receiver for the team.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson has some upside as a WR2, and this is encouraging news, despite his lack of a proven quarterback.

Vikings | More aggressive on defense

Sat, 21 Jun 2014 16:24:33 -0700

Minnesota Vikings DE Everson Griffen said the new defensive philosophy calls for more aggressive, up-field attack. Griffen will be utilized as an outside pass rusher in head coach Mike Zimmer's system, which contrasts his miscast role as an inside rusher last year.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson working on pass catching

Sat, 21 Jun 2014 09:19:22 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said he has been working on his pass-catching skills, because he likely will be asked to catch more passes in offensive coordinator Norv Turner's system. The team sees Peterson as an every-down running back, so he may have to pick up some blitzes on passing downs.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson should be a top-five pick in all fantasy leagues this season and becoming more of a pass catcher will only add to his value.
