Vikings | Pat Shurmur focused on running game

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 14:55:47 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RBs Adrian Peterson and/or Jerick McKinnon could see increased usage in 2017 with offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. Shurmur wants to improve the offense as a whole, but he said the key and focal point of the offense will be to do a better job in the running game.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson's future with the Vikings remains unclear, but either he or McKinnon could be better used next season, with Matt Asiata remaining in a change-of-pace and passing role. No matter who Peterson plays for in 2017, drafting him will be playing with fire considering he's missed almost two full seasons in the past three years.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater working to return

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 18:44:15 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is "grinding" and doing all types of drills as part of his rehab from his knee injury, according to WR Charles Johnson.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater is likely to miss the entire 2017 season as he continues his recovery. Sam Bradford should continue to start in his place, but he is a low-upside QB2.

Vikings | Adam Thielen to give hometown discount?

Sat, 18 Feb 2017 18:33:57 -0800

Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent WR Adam Thielen said there is "something special" about playing for one franchise, and he hopes to stay with Minnesota if he receives an offer in his "ballpark."

Fantasy Tip: Thielen developed great chemistry with Sam Bradford and emerged as Minnesota's steadiest receiver. If he is a Viking in 2017, he should be a quality WR3.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson wants the ball

Sun, 05 Feb 2017 17:32:45 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson said his future in Minnesota depends on how he will be used. "I need to know if I'm going to play or not," Patterson said. "If not, I'll take my talents elsewhere. If they want me back, they'll make a deal and get me back."

Fantasy Tip: Patterson's role in the offense increased once Pat Shurmur took over as offensive coordinator, but his fantasy value is always going to be tied to big plays. His boom-or-bust style makes him more appealing in DFS formats than in season-long leagues.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson's future being analyzed

Fri, 03 Feb 2017 20:08:08 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson's future with the team won't be decided until some "tough analysis" is performed, according to president Mark Wilf.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson will likely have to agree to a pay cut to return to Minnesota, and there is a good chance he plays elsewhere in 2017. His days as a fantasy stud are likely in the past, but he will still be an intriguing option in 2017 if he lands with a strong offense.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph pleased with 2016 season

Fri, 03 Feb 2017 15:20:10 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph said his play in 2016 is more up to his standards and expects to post similar stats moving forward. "I talked about how my first five years were kind of disappointing to me, in terms of my standards," Rudolph said. "This season was more along the lines of what I expect for myself, and what I expect moving forward, to kind of be a springboard and a baseline for the rest of my career." Rudolph finished the 2016 season with 83 receptions for 840 yards and seven touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph posted career highs in receptions and receiving yards this season and was able to play all 16 games for the third time in his career. He should continue to be a main part of the passing game for the Vikings and can be a No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

Fri, 03 Feb 2017 15:01:02 -0800
