Vikings | Adrian Peterson the last of his kind?

Sat, 13 Feb 2016 17:20:58 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson was the only player to have more than 300 carries last year, and retired RB Emmitt Smith believes that if Peterson doesn't break the all-time rushing record, no one will.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson is still four or five good years away from making a legit run at Smith's record, but he is the closest thing to a workhorse back in a league that continues to move to a committee approach at running back. He is probably the safest fantasy option at his position and should be one of the first players off the board in 2016.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater better indoors?

Fri, 12 Feb 2016 09:28:56 -0800

Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman thinks QB Teddy Bridgewater will be aided by the move to an indoor stadium in 2016. In five career games indoors, Bridgewater is 2-3 with a 70.6% completion rate, 8.1 yards per pass, 258 yards passing per game, four touchdowns and three interceptions.

"I think it's just in general, quarterbacks playing indoors (play better)," Spielman said. "If you look at Teddy's stats and how he performed when we were indoors, in Detroit or even out in Arizona, some of those ideal conditions, we feel he can take another step forward. But he still has to play outdoors."

Fantasy Tip: Bridgewater did improve in his sophomore season, and having Adrian Peterson at his disposal surely helped. Seeing another improvement in his third season wouldn't be outlandish, but saying he'd be anything more than a low-end fantasy starter would be bold.

Vikings | Mike Wallace a likely cut

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 08:43:59 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace is likely to be cut in the offseason as he carries an $11.5 million salary for 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace had a futile 39-473-2 line last season and didn't fit the offense very well. He still has the potential to land in a prime spot and be a solid WR4 flyer.

Vikings | Danielle Hunter could start

Mon, 08 Feb 2016 11:27:18 -0800

Minnesota Vikings DL Danielle Hunter could earn a starting position next season and will likely at least see an increased role. Hunter contributed six sacks in his rookie season in 2015 coming off the bench.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon a star in waiting?

Sun, 07 Feb 2016 20:22:08 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon has averaged at least 5.2 yards per carry and at least 83 rushing yards in every game that he has received at least 15 carries.

Fantasy Tip: While Adrian Peterson will be the workhorse in Minnesota as long as he is healthy, McKinnon has too much upside to go undrafted. Stash him on your bench in 2016 just in case Peterson goes down.

Vikings | Minnesota coaching roles clearer

Mon, 25 Jan 2016 11:50:15 -0800

Minnesota Vikings assistant coaches Pat Shurmur and Kevin Stefanski will coach the tight ends and running backs, respectively, next season.

Fantasy Tip: These changes obviously affect the likes of Adrian Peterson and Kyle Rudolph. Shurmur brings an extensive coaching pedigree to Minnesota, and he should be able to keep Rudolph comfortable on the fantasy radar. Stefanski has been with the Vikings for 11 years, giving Peterson some familiarity. Peterson stays in RB1 territory, while Rudolph is right on the fringe of TE1 territory if he can stay healthy.
