Vikings | Latavius Murray could play next Sunday

Sun, 20 Aug 2017 06:34:15 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray (ankle) is expected to play in the preseason game against the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, Aug. 27, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. He had missed both of the team's first two exhibition contests.

Fantasy Tip: Murray will split time in the backfield with Dalvin Cook this season and is expected to be used primarily as a ball carrier. He should be viewed as a RB3 or flex option in most fantasy formats.

Vikings | Stefon Diggs sharp in preseason action

Sat, 19 Aug 2017 08:42:46 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs caught four of his five targets for 65 yards versus the Seattle Seahawks on Friday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs took advantage of a busted zone coverage to break off a 39-yard catch-and-run, but it was clear he was the primary target for Sam Bradford in this one. The third-year receiver broke out in 2016 with 84 receptions despite missing three games and is well on his way to becoming a consistent 100-catch receiver if he can stay healthy. He is a high-end WR2 in PPR leagues despite an inability to find the end zone only seven times thus far in his career.

Vikings | Dalvin Cook has decent Week 2 outing

Fri, 18 Aug 2017 22:25:37 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed seven times for 40 yards Friday, Aug. 18, in a 20-13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: A strong Seahawks defense was largely the thing that held the Vikings running game in check, with just 71 yards on 17 carries. Cook was drafted with the idea he would break the running game open, and he should be considered as a mid-range RB2 candidate. He will have some solid outings.

Vikings | Dalvin Cook impressing in passing game

Fri, 11 Aug 2017 12:17:47 -0700

Minnesota Vikings rookie RB Dalvin Cook has impressed the team with his receiving skills throughout the spring and during training camp. "(Cook's work in the passing game has) been tremendous throughout (training) camp, and I think it's something that we noticed pretty early on during (spring drills). He continued to show it throughout the camp, and I think he's going to be a valuable asset, not only in the run game, but I think we're going to be able to utilize him in the pass game," quarterback Sam Bradford said.

Fantasy Tip: Cook was bottled up as a runner in his preseason debut Thursday (five carries, 13 yards), but his four catches for 30 yards bodes in just over a quarter of work is a tangible sign Minnesota likes what he can do as a receiver. He is an incredibly explosive rusher to boot, so he should have no problem breaking off a few long runs during the season even if his line only shows a modest improvement over last year. Cook should be viewed as a high-end RB2 in all formats.
