Vikings | Jerick McKinnon a star in waiting?

Sun, 07 Feb 2016 20:22:08 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon has averaged at least 5.2 yards per carry and at least 83 rushing yards in every game that he has received at least 15 carries.

Fantasy Tip: While Adrian Peterson will be the workhorse in Minnesota as long as he is healthy, McKinnon has too much upside to go undrafted. Stash him on your bench in 2016 just in case Peterson goes down.

Vikings | Minnesota coaching roles clearer

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 11:50:15 -0800

Minnesota Vikings assistant coaches Pat Shurmur and Kevin Stefanski will coach the tight ends and running backs, respectively, next season.

Fantasy Tip: These changes obviously affect the likes of Adrian Peterson and Kyle Rudolph. Shurmur brings an extensive coaching pedigree to Minnesota, and he should be able to keep Rudolph comfortable on the fantasy radar. Stefanski has been with the Vikings for 11 years, giving Peterson some familiarity. Peterson stays in RB1 territory, while Rudolph is right on the fringe of TE1 territory if he can stay healthy.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson posts fewer receptions

Mon, 11 Jan 2016 10:57:38 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson caught only 30 passes this season even though the team said they wanted to throw to him more often in order to reduce some of the hits he receives as a runner. He was targeted only 36 times, which was fewer than all but two seasons during his career.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson's main value is his rushing yards with his receiving stats being a bonus for fantasy owners. Peterson probably will be targeted more often in the passing game next season and will be a first-round pick in all leagues.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson to work on ball security

Mon, 11 Jan 2016 10:49:51 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson said his top priority this offseason will be working on cutting down on his fumbles. Peterson fumbled eight times this season and lost four of the fumbles.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson led the NFL in rushing during the regular season with 1,485 rushing yards but also was one of the league leaders in fumbles. Peterson should still be a first-round pick in fantasy leagues next season and could be in the conversation for the No. 1 overall pick.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson held in check

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 14:48:07 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson rushed for 45 yards on 23 carries during the wild-card playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson rushed for 1,485 yards during the regular season, which led the NFL in that category. Peterson should continue his solid play next season and will be a first-round option in every league.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater quiet in playoff game

Sun, 10 Jan 2016 14:47:14 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater went 17-for-24 for 146 yards during the wild-card playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater threw 14 touchdowns for the second straight regular season and threw for at least 200 yards in only seven games this season. Bridgewater could improve next season but should only be a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues in 2016.
