Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater's shoulder holds up

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 18:42:18 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (shoulder) completed 12 of his 16 passes for 161 yards and a touchdown in a 23-10 preseason win over the San Diego Chargers Sunday, Aug. 28, and he said his throwing shoulder felt great.

Fantasy Tip: Although Bridgewater appears healthy, his ceiling is limited by Minnesota's run-heavy offense. He is a mediocre QB2 option.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater expected to play

Sun, 28 Aug 2016 09:27:06 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (shoulder) is participating in pregame warmups and is expected to play in the preseason game against the San Diego Chargers Sunday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater dealt with a sore shoulder earlier in training camp but appears to be fine. He probably will improve on his status from 2015 but should still be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback since Adrian Peterson will continue to see a lot of work.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson to sit rest of preseason

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 14:46:04 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson will not play in the final two preseason games. Peterson made the decision himself and said it's in his best interest to rest until Week 1 of the regular season against the Tennessee Titans.

Fantasy Tip: This is commonplace as Peterson has not played in the preseason since 2011. It's usually a precursor to him attaining RB1 status year after year. He's still an RB1 candidate going into his 10th season in the NFL. The Vikings will continue to rely on him and he should be one of the first backs taken in all fantasy formats.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater expects to play

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 14:16:30 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (shoulder) said he expects to play in the preseason game against the San Diego Chargers Sunday, Aug. 28. Bridgewater did not say much about his shoulder injury.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known how much playing time Bridgewater will receive if he is active for the game, but it would be a good sign if he is able to play. He probably should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues since the Vikings are more of a running team and will not throw as much as other teams.

Vikings | Shaun Hill back at practice

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 22:53:42 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Shaun Hill practiced on Tuesday, Aug. 23, after not participating in either of the club's practices over the weekend. It's unclear if Hill will play on Sunday, Aug. 28, against the San Diego Chargers.

Fantasy Tip: Under normal circumstances this wouldn't be noteworthy, but the tight-lipped approach to Teddy Bridgewater's undisclosed shoulder issue makes Hill's status a bit more meaningful. Still, unless Bridgewater is going to miss significant time -- and there's been nothing to suggest he will -- Hill is of zero interest.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater resumes throwing

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 15:24:35 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (shoulder) threw during team drills Tuesday, Aug. 23, although he was apparently throwing shorter passes for the most part. Head coach Mike Zimmer said he didn't want to play Bridgewater last week for risk of Bridgewater getting hurt, adding that he would use caution if Bridgewater did have a shoulder issue. It's unclear if Bridgewater will play in Week 3 of the preseason.

Fantasy Tip: A keen eye will have to be kept on Bridgewater leading up to the regular season. His numbers weren't off the chart last year, but he did enough to achieve a playoff berth. He doesn't do enough to get a playoff berth for fantasy teams, however, and should only be drafted as a backup.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater limited on Saturday

Sat, 20 Aug 2016 17:05:51 -0700

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater was on the field but did not attempt any throws at practice on Saturday, Aug. 20. Head coach Mike Zimmer told reporters he had "no concern" about his signal-caller's health.

Fantasy Tip: Zimmer also told reporters Bridgewater "could have played Thursday, but I decided not to play him" in reference to the fact his starting quarterback sat out the team's road exhibition win against the Seattle Seahawks. For now, owners should take Zimmer at his word and consider this a minor issue while also remembering Shaun Hill would be the starter if the situation gets worse. Bridgewater is a mostly unexciting QB2 at the moment in most leagues.
