Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater throws at OTAs

Tue, 23 May 2017 15:42:05 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) participated in some drop back passes during organized team activities Tuesday, May 23. Bridgewater's injured knee was in a brace and as he continues to rehabilitate from surgery.

Fantasy Tip: There's no telling when Bridgewater will be back to full health and be able to take the field again. In the meantime, Sam Bradford will continue to start. And while he is coming off a career year, Bradford's numbers just aren't good enough for him to be considered a QB1.

Vikings | Michael Floyd will adjust quickly

Sun, 21 May 2017 19:34:23 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd won't have any issues picking up the offensive system, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Tip: Even if Floyd earns steady playing time, he is going to have a tough time providing much fantasy value as part of a Minnesota offense that relies on shorter throws. You can leave him on the waiver wire.

Vikings | Michael Floyd to practice soon

Thu, 18 May 2017 18:49:09 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Michael Floyd will begin practicing next week after having the remainder of his 96-day house arrest transferred from Arizona to Minnesota, according to a league source.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd could claim the No. 3 receiver job in Minnesota, but being the third or fourth option in a dink-and-dump passing game doesn't translate to a lot of fantasy appeal. He is just a late-round flier.

Vikings | Minnesota expecting committee backfield

Wed, 10 May 2017 19:39:20 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RBs Latavius Murray and Dalvin Cook are expected to engage in a "heated competition" and, eventually, forge an established committee to replace Adrian Peterson, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune's Andrew Krammer.

Fantasy Tip: The competition can't begin in earnest until training camp, when Murray is expected to be ready after undergoing ankle surgery in March. Based on talent alone, Cook should be considered the frontrunner, but Minnesota was more than happy having Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata share touches last season. Cook will most likely lead the backfield in touches, but Murray will probably be the change-of-pace and preferred goal-line option, making both flex options at best.

Vikings | Minnesota adding Michael Floyd

Wed, 10 May 2017 12:17:10 -0700

Free-agent WR Michael Floyd (Patriots) agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings Wednesday, May 10, according to sources. The deal is worth $1.5 million, but Floyd could make as much as $6 million based on incentives.

Fantasy Tip: Floyd may receive the chance to compete for the No. 3 receiver job during training camp but probably will be the No. 4 receiver at worst. He probably will see a limited amount of targets in 2017 but could be a late-round option in some deeper leagues.

Vikings | Dalvin Cook makes early impression

Sat, 06 May 2017 20:44:51 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook has impressed head coach Mike Zimmer during rookie minicamp. "He showed acceleration, good feet, good vision, a lot of the same things we saw on tape," Zimmer said.

Fantasy Tip: Cook will likely compete with Latavius Murray for touches this season. He is a RB4 in redraft formats, but his long-term upside makes him worth a first-round pick in rookie drafts.

Fri, 05 May 2017 15:06:33 -0700

Vikings | Minnesota noncommittal about starting RB

Fri, 05 May 2017 12:01:00 -0700

Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer did not shed any light on the identity of his team's starting running back - expected to be a two-man battle between Latavius Murray and rookie second-rounder Dalvin Cook - when asked about it Friday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Nor should he. Zimmer is an old-school coach in the first place and naming a starter - or even a leader in the clubhouse - now serves no purpose when he wants his players to earn the job in camp. Murray will almost certainly begin camp atop the depth chart, but Cook figures to reduce his role to more of a short-yardage hammer and goal-line back early in the season. Cook has low-end RB2 upside as a rookie, while Murray may struggle for flex value.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater posts workout

Thu, 04 May 2017 20:34:51 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) posted a video of himself going through agility drills Thursday, March 4.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater is still working his way back from a devastating knee injury, and he may not be ready to play at all in 2017. Look for Sam Bradford to open the year as the starter, but he is a mediocre QB2 for fantasy owners.
