Thu, 23 Nov 2017 16:54:47 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs caught five passes for 66 yards against the Detroit Lions in Week 12.

Vikings | Adam Thielen continues strong play

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 16:51:23 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught eight passes for 89 yards against the Detroit Lions in Week 12.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen is the first Vikings receiver since 2009 to record at least 1,000 yards and will continue to be one of the top targets for the team moving forward. He should be considered a No. 2 receiver in all leagues.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon has decent outing

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 16:46:32 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed for 23 yards on 13 carries against the Detroit Lions in Week 12. He also caught one pass for 31 yards during the game.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon will continue to share work with Latavius Murray moving forward but should be more involved in the passing game. He can be a flex option in point-per-reception leagues against favorable matchups.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph gobbles up two scores

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 13:30:36 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph scored both of the Vikings' receiving touchdowns Thursday, Nov. 23, catching four passes for 63 yards in total.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph nearly doubled his touchdowns just in this game; he had only caught three on the season. There hasn't been enough love to go around between Rudolph, Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen, but Rudolph made his catches matter today. He'll remain a TE1 play as long as he's healthy.

Vikings | Latavius Murray shows up in ground game

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 13:26:36 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray notched 20 carries for 84 yards and a touchdown Thursday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Give Murray some butter 'cause he's on a roll, now scoring four times in his last three outings. His main value is in standard leagues as he has only caught seven passes on the year. Still, he needs to be in the RB2 conversation going forward.

Vikings | Case Keenum carves up Detroit

Thu, 23 Nov 2017 13:22:59 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum totaled 302 yards and three touchdowns in a Thanksgiving win versus the Detroit Lions Thursday, Nov. 23.

Fantasy Tip: Keenum made a strong case for keeping the starting job away from Teddy Bridgewater. He has done nothing to force the Vikings' hand in making Bridgewater the starter, but he has forced us to consider him as a weekly starter.

Vikings | Case Keenum to draw another start

Tue, 21 Nov 2017 10:03:08 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum was confirmed as the starting quarterback for the team's Week 12 Thanksgiving Day game against the Detroit Lions.

Fantasy Tip: It seems only a matter of time before head coach Mike Zimmer makes the move to Teddy Bridgewater considering he is addressing and answering this question every week, but it would be foolish to pull the plug on Keenum until he gives the Vikings a reason to do so and especially on a short week. Keenum remains firmly in the fantasy QB2 discussion for now.

Vikings | Stefon Diggs posts four receptions

Sun, 19 Nov 2017 15:43:47 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs managed four catches for 32 yards on six targets in Week 11 agaisnt the Los Angeles Rams.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs has four or more grabs in each of his past three outings since returning from a groin injury, but he has visited the end zone just once while averaging 45.7 yards per game. Something's missing, and perhaps he isn't back to 100 percent just yet. But he remains a useful WR3 or flex fantasy option, especially in PPR leagues, heading into Thanksgiving against the Lions in Week 12.
