Vikings | Adam Thielen misses practice

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 13:06:25 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (back) was absent from practice Wednesday, Jan. 17.

Fantasy Tip: Thielen was recently on the injury report because of a knee injury, so the back ailment is a new development. He has extra motivation to play this week, though, with a berth to the Super Bowl on the line. After a monstrous breakout campaign, Thielen can be considered a WR1.

Vikings | Kyle Rudolph targeted eight times

Sun, 14 Jan 2018 17:53:27 -0800

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph posted five grabs for 28 yards on eight targets in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Rudolph was busy, but the frequent catches didn't amount to much in the way of yardage. Still, he might be the most reasonably priced DFS option at tight end heading into the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles next weekend.

Vikings | Stefon Diggs scores miracle touchdown

Sun, 14 Jan 2018 17:51:58 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs finished with six receptions for 137 yards in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 14, and his 61-yard game-winning touchdown with no time left will go down in NFL playoff history as one of the biggest.

Fantasy Tip: Diggs and the Vikings were down 24-23 with a handful of ticks on the clock, but he went up for the ball, eluded a defender and shook loose down the sidelined while U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis was going bonkers. He'll look to carry over the momentum into the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles next Sunday.

Vikings | Jerick McKinnon totals 40 yards, TD

Sun, 14 Jan 2018 17:51:08 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon ran eight times for 34 yards and a touchdown in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 14, and he added three grabs for six yards.

Fantasy Tip: McKinnon was outgained by Murray for 67 total yards to 40, while Murray had 21 total touches to 11 for McKinnon. Look for a similar touch distribution in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles next weekend. McKinnon is more of a RB3 or flex fantasy play in DFS for that one.

Vikings | Latavius Murray runs for 50 yards, TD

Sun, 14 Jan 2018 17:50:31 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray ran 19 times for 50 yards and a touchdown in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 14.

Fantasy Tip: Murray and Jerick McKinnon shared the backfield carries at a 2-to-1 split, with Murray doing most of the lifting. Look for the same distribution in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles next week. Murray is a decent RB2 or flex fantasy option in DFS play next week.
