Vikings | Kyle Rudolph studying video

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 23:50:03 -0700

Updating a previous item, Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph has studied videos of past tight ends offensive coordinator Norv Turner has worked with before.

Fantasy Tip: If Rudolph takes time like this to look at how Turner operates his offense, that's a good sign. The team's quarterback situation will determine how the receivers fare in 2014, but if the passing game excels and uses the tight end more often then Rudolph could bear watching.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson has high expectations

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 12:49:59 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has high expectations for the 2014 season, thinking he could be a top-five playmaker at wide receiver. "I'm going to be a top-5 playmaker," Patterson said. "I'm a playmaker, I like to make plays. Like I tell them, just get the ball in my hands I feel like I'm special with it. I just like to do special things with the ball."

Fantasy Tip: There is a lot to be excited about with Patterson going into 2014. He should be considered a WR2 with an extremely high ceiling.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph slims down

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 11:55:51 -0700

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph has slimmed down this offseason, dropping about 15 pounds. "It was more of just a focus on my diet in February and March, versus, you are out in California, you work out every day, so you feel like you can eat whatever you want," Rudolph said. "Nothing really changes, because you make up for it with the workouts, but when I really focused on eating lean meats, eating the salads, you see the results."

Vikings | OC praises QBs

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 10:06:42 -0700

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Norv Turner has been very happy with QBs Matt Cassel, Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Ponder heading up to training camp. "We've got a really, really good group," he said, explaining that it won't be hard to parcel out snaps in the apparent three-headed battle. Cassel is expected to be the starter, but Turner has praised Bridgewater for his arm strength and quick learning.

Fantasy Tip: Turner's vertical passing scheme is usually good news for his quarterbacks. However, the vet Cassel is unlikely to be a difference-maker for your fantasy squad as anything more than a midrange QB2. Bridgewater is expected to eventually take this job.

"He's been able to do some real good things in the offense, picking it up well and just his running style."
