Vikings | Jerick McKinnon limited

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 13:59:45 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) was limited in practice again Tuesday, Sept. 30.

Fantasy Tip: While RB Matt Asiata figures to see the majority of the workload out of the backfield, McKinnon could make for a nice investment at $3,900 on FantasyScore against a subpar Green Bay Packers defense.

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 13:56:25 -0700

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater remains hopeful

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 13:13:36 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) is feeling "much better" Tuesday, Sept. 30, and head coach Mike Zimmer remains hopeful that Bridgewater can play in Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers Thursday, Oct. 2. If Bridgewater is going to throw and push off his left foot, he'll likely do so during a walk-through Wednesday, Oct. 1. QB Christian Ponder would make his first start of the year if Bridgewater doesn't play.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater is cheap again at FantasyScore ($4,800; 9.6% of cap), but he's not a wise selection for your roster if he's not 100 percent during a short week.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater not practicing

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 11:24:24 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) isn't practicing for the second straight day Tuesday, Sept. 30.

Fantasy Tip: It's not a good sign that Bridgewater hasn't practiced yet heading into a short week against the Green Bay Packers. However, the Vikes remain optimistic that he can play. It wouldn't be wise to put him in your lineup, despite his impressive showing in his first ever start last week.

Vikings | Vikes prefer running-back-by-committee

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 10:41:30 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon ran for 135 yards on 18 carries in the team's Week 4 win over the Atlanta Falcons, but head coach Mike Zimmer is hesitant to call him an every-down back, with RB Matt Asiata also in the mix. Zimmer prefers a committee approach at running back, because it poses more problems for defenses. Asiata is more of a between-the-tackles runner, while McKinnon presents a change of pace with his speed and quickness on the edges. McKinnon also isn't very polished in pass protection.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon was impressive last weekend, but he'll remain a flex play at FantasyScore with Asiata stealing valuable goal-line touches. Both Asiata ($6,500) and McKinnon ($4,700) could be productive again on a short week against the Green Bay Packers, but McKinnon obviously has a much better chance to return a profit.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon limited in practice

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 16:17:42 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon (ankle) was limited in practice Monday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon's ankle injury doesn't seem serious, and he should be able to play on a short week against the Green Bay Packers. McKinnon showed some explosiveness in going over 100 yards in Week 4. He's a flex play, at best, with Matt Asiata in the picture and stealing goal-line looks, but McKinnon could be another sleeper play at your flex spot this week.

Vikings | Monday practice report

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 16:15:25 -0700

Minnesota Vikings LB Chad Greenway (hand, rib) and CB Captain Munnerlyn (illness) did not practice Monday, Sept. 29. CB Josh Robinson (hamstring) was limited, while FB Jerome Felton (knee), LB Michael Mauti (foot), WR Rodney Smith (hamstring) and LB Brandon Watts (knee) practiced in full.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater misses practice

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 15:06:19 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) did not participate in practice Monday, Sept. 29. QB Christian Ponder worked with the first-team offense during practice.

Fantasy Tip: The team hopes Bridgewater will be able to play, but Ponder would get the start if Bridgewater sits out. Ponder should not be a starting option in any league and the team's wide receivers probably would lose some fantasy value if Ponder starts.

Vikings | Jarius Wright has chemistry with QB

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 13:58:18 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Jarius Wright said he created a solid chemistry with QB Teddy Bridgewater during the preseason, which is why he caught eight passes for 132 yards in Week 4. "Teddy knew where to put the ball to me on a couple throws," Wright said. "I kind of knew where to expect the ball. Our reps paid off. A lot of trust."

Fantasy Tip: Wright played well in Week 4 and could continue to have a role in the passing game because of his work with Bridgewater during the preseason. Wright could be a sleeper for owners this week and could be a good option for owners on FantasyScore since his price will probably be low.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater does it all

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 10:27:25 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater ran five times for 27 yards, including a 13-yard touchdown run, in the team's Week 4 win over the Atlanta Falcons. However, he also opened up the team's downfield passing game, going 19 of 30 for 317 yards. He stayed in the pocket for 19 of his 29 throws, and he went 8-for-12 for 163 yards on throws that were 10 yards downfield or more.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater's ceiling is high in Norv Turner's offense. He'll be able to provide his fantasy owners with a little extra because of the fact that he can use his legs effectively to make big plays. In weekly leagues, he'll remain a sleeper at a cheaper cost. Play him based on matchups.

Vikings | Vikes hoping Teddy Bridgewater will play

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 10:18:53 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) and head coach Mike Zimmer are "hopeful" that the quarterback can play in Week 5 against the Green Bay Packers Thursday, Oct. 2. Bridgewater sprained his left ankle early in the fourth quarter in Week 4, but Zimmer said an MRI exam came back negative. Bridgewater was feeling much better Monday, Sept. 29. He threw for 317 yards against the Atlanta Falcons in his first start.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like there's a good chance that Bridgewater will play on a short week. Despite his solid performance against the Falcons, with little preparation and with a bum ankle, Bridgewater may not be the best option for your daily fantasy lineups.
