Vikings | Taylor Heinicke recovering from ankle injury

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 17:55:13 -0700

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Taylor Heinicke (ankle) is expected to miss at least two months after sustaining an ankle injury in a freak accident earlier this month. Heinicke and a friend realized they were locked out of his friend's apartment after returning from a late-night movie. In an attempt to break open the door, Heinicke kicked through a glass pane and severed a tendon in his left ankle. He recently underwent surgery and reported to camp Thursday, July 28, with a cast on his left leg.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson recovering from minor injury

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 17:24:33 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (undisclosed) was held out of selected team drills Friday, July 29, because he is recovering from an undisclosed offseason injury, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. However, he performed the conditioning test and participated in running light sprints from sideline to sideline before eventually receiving a handful of carries near the end of team drills.

Fantasy Tip: Since Peterson received limited action in team drills Friday, his injury should not be considered serious. The 31-year-old veteran makes a somewhat risky fantasy option because the Vikings are moving towards a spread offense and he has never been considered a great receiver. That being said, he should still be viewed as a midrange RB1 in all seasonal leagues.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson injured Friday

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 17:16:03 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson (arm) suffered an apparent injury to his left shoulder or collarbone during practice Friday, July 29. He sustained the injury after making a diving catch and was forced to leave early. Head coach Mike Zimmer does not believe the problem is serious.

Fantasy Tip: Patterson has not performed up to his potential through his first two NFL seasons but may still be worth considering as a late-round flier in deeper fantasy leagues.

Vikings | Nick Foles could start for Vikings

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 18:20:38 -0700

Free-agent QB Nick Foles (Rams) would be given the chance to start for the Minnesota Vikings if he does sign.

Fantasy Tip: It's not terribly plausible that Foles would beat out Teddy Bridgewater even if he does join the Vikings. Foles' fantasy value remains next to nonexistent and he can keep being avoided in all formats.

Vikings | Minnesota eyeing Nick Foles?

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 22:50:55 -0700

Free-agent QB Nick Foles (Rams) might be of interest to the Minnesota Vikings, one of three teams believed to be in on the quarterback, according to a source. The Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys are also believed to be interested.

Fantasy Tip: Foles would serve as the backup to Teddy Bridgewater, so unless disaster struck in Minnesota Foles would be the No. 2 and have zero fantasy appeal.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson set to walk?

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 23:26:44 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is likely in his final year with the Vikings as his salary hikes to $18 million in 2017, and QB Teddy Bridgewater is due for a large salary increase, according to beat writer Charley Walters.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson, 31, carries some risk this season because the offense is shifting to more shotgun sets, which Peterson struggled with last year. Jerick McKinnon figures to handle a lot of third downs. The upside for Peterson is lacking this year, but he remains a midrange RB1.

Vikings | Charles Johnson on track to make team?

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 18:15:05 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Charles Johnson is likely competing with WR Moritz Bohringer for a spot on the roster, according to beat writer Matt Vensel, who also mentioned that Johnson had a strong spring while working mainly with the first-team offense.

Fantasy Tip: Although it sounds like Johnson has an early edge on Bohringer to secure a roster spot, he is at best the No. 3 receiver in a run-heavy offense. He is unlikely to make an impact for fantasy owners.
