Vikings | Mike Wallace makes bold claim

Tue, 05 May 2015 17:12:13 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Mike Wallace proclaimed himself the fastest player in the NFL Tuesday, May 5, per the Pioneer Press. "If somebody feels foggy about that, we can [race]. I'm never going to back down from competition,'' said Wallace.

Fantasy Tip: Wallace will have a lot of work to do this season if he wants to prove himself correct. Wallace surpassed 1,000 receiving yards in two of his last three seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers, but posted a high of 930 yards in his three-year stint with the Miami Dolphins. With plenty of mid-level receiving options in Minnesota, Wallace will have to get off to a strong start or risk being buried on the depth chart. At this point, Wallace should be considered as not much more than a late-round flier with WR3 upside in 10 or 12 team leagues.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson's agent seeks new deal

Fri, 01 May 2015 08:34:30 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson may be changing course in his pursuit of a trade as his agent, Ben Dogra, said he'd like the team to sign Peterson to an extension. "One of the things that I appreciate with the Vikings is their resolve to say 'we're not trading him,'" Dogra told USA TODAY Sports. "That tells me they value him not only as a football player, but what he's done for the organization. "I actually, as an agent, not only appreciate it - I accept it. But actions speak louder than words. If that's going to happen, and you want to keep him, then show him a commitment to make him retire as a Viking. And I haven't had that solution." Peterson has three years and $46 million left on his contract, but none of it is guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson is still a high-end RB1. He'll likely be a first-round pick wherever he plays next season.

Vikings | No change to Adrian Peterson's status

Thu, 30 Apr 2015 11:06:15 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is still expected to remain with the Vikings even though former NFL WR Cris Carter indicated Peterson could be traded in the near future.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson will continue to be mentioned in trade talks until the start of the season, but it looks like nothing is imminent. Peterson should be a first round pick in most leagues next season no matter which uniform he is wearing.

Vikings | Cordarrelle Patterson looking to improve

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 08:35:51 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson said he plans to focus on improving his route running this offseason. "Just route running," Patterson said. "Growing up, I was always athletic and could just do anything. I'm in the NFL now, so I just have to focus on my craft and just work at route running, getting in and getting out of breaks and stuff like that."

Fantasy Tip: Patterson was a flop in 2014, but the acquisition of Mike Wallace should shift some of the defensive attention away from him. Patterson is a great WR3 in traditional leagues. His promise may make it tough to acquire him as such, though.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson likely to stay in purple

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 05:50:45 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson is 80% likely to remain with the Vikings, in the opinion of ESPN insider Chris Mortensen.

Fantasy Tip: Peterson, even if he remains in Minnesota, should be the team's main back yet again, and he'll likely be in consideration for the top overall fantasy pick in 2015 after sitting out almost the entire 2014 season. He's rested and determined to return as one of the elite rushers in the NFL.

Vikings | GM praises Cordarrelle Patterson

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 20:21:54 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Cordarrelle Patterson has dedicated himself to becoming a better receiver, according to general manager Rick Spielman. "I think Cordarrelle has really grown up a lot," Spielman said. "I know what he has done this offseason dedicating himself to being the best receiver he can be, and how serious he is taking that, we're very excited about the future with Cordarrelle."

Fantasy Tip: Patterson was a huge disappointment last season, and he was basically a non-factor in the passing game for most of the year. Still, he possesses elite athleticism and speed, and he has the ability to turn any catch into a big play. Patterson is worth taking a chance on later in drafts just in case he realizes his potential in 2015.
