Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater making strides

Sat, 27 Dec 2014 21:05:20 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater has completed more than 70% of his passes in four consecutive games, and he has thrown multiple touchdowns in three of the four games during the same stretch.

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater has steadily improved throughout his rookie year, and he could be a sneaky alternative quarterback option at FantasyScore in Week 17 when he faces a Chicago defense ranked 31st against the pass.

Vikings | Greg Jennings probable

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 15:06:59 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (hamstring) is listed as probable for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings does have a nice matchup with the Chicago Bears, but he just doesn't perform consistently enough to warrant consideration in FantasyScore lineups this week with equal pricing at all positions.

Vikings | Matt Asiata listed as probable

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 15:03:10 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (foot) is listed as probable for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata is at least a nice flex option on FantasyScore this week as he faces off against a Chicago Bears defense that surrenders nearly 20 fantasy points per game to running backs.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph questionable

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 15:00:42 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) is questionable for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: It would be a travesty if Rudolph is unable to go. He would face a Chicago Bears defense that is tied for the league lead with 13 scores allowed to tight ends.

Vikings | Matt Asiata takes part in practice

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 14:48:26 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (foot) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata would receive most of the work at running back in Week 17. He has a favorable matchup against the Chicago Bears since they have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing running backs over the last four games. Asiata could be a No. 2 running back or flex option for owners on FantasyScore this week.

Vikings | Greg Jennings limited

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 14:45:19 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Greg Jennings (hamstring) was limited during practice Thursday, Dec. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Jennings should have a good chance to play in Week 17 even though he is limited. He will be facing a Chicago Bears defense that has struggled against wide receivers over the past four games. Jennings could be considered as a No. 3 wide receiver or flex option for owners.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph sits out

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 14:31:38 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph has missed the last two practices, so there is a good chance he will not be able to play in Week 17. Owners on FantasyScore should avoid using him this week. Rhett Ellison and Chase Ford likely would see playing time at tight end, but neither is a great option for owners.

Vikings | Matt Asiata practices in full

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 13:22:35 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Matt Asiata (foot) took part in a full practice session Wednesday, Dec. 24.

Fantasy Tip: Asiata has posted nine rushing touchdowns this season, and can be a help to FantasyScore owners in Week 17. Not only does he have a nose for the end zone, but he has good hands out of the backfield as well.
