  Vikings | No practice for Dalvin Cook    Mon Sep 24, 07:26 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) did not participate in practice Monday, Sept. 24.

Footballguys view: Cook missed the game against the Bills on Sunday but reports last week indicated he'd be back this week. We'll see if that comes to fruition and will be waiting to see if Cook can practice later in the week. The Vikings play on Thursday night against the Rams.

  Vikings | Pat Elflein suffered no setbacks    Mon Sep 24, 06:42 PM

Minnesota Vikings C Pat Elflein (ankle, shoulder) said he feels good after playing 22 snaps during the Week 3 game. He said he does not know if he will start at center in Week 4 but will be ready if he does start.

  Vikings | Dalvin Cook unsure about Week 4    Mon Sep 24, 02:59 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) considers himself day-to-day and suggests there's a 'good chance' he'll play in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Footballguys view: Last week there seemed to be a confidence about Cook playing in Week 4. We'll know more about his status as the week of practice rolls on.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs held in check    Sun Sep 23, 04:56 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs posted just four receptions for 17 yards on 10 targets in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills.

Footballguys view: Diggs was the only key part of the Vikings offense whose production matched the team performance. The Rams lost Marcus Peters today, so his matchup with them on Thursday isn't as scary, although if he's shadowed by the best corner (Aqib Talib with Peters out) like he was when Tre'Davious White followed him, that could be a problem.

  Vikings | Kyle Rudolph finds end zone in loss    Sun Sep 23, 04:52 PM

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph posted five catches for 48 yards and a touchdown on six targets in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills.

Footballguys view: Rudolph got a garbage time score to stay among the startable fantasy tight ends. He should be a key target against the Rams on Thursday.

  Vikings | Adam Thielen hits century mark again    Sun Sep 23, 04:47 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen made a career-high 14 receptions for 105 yards on 19 targets in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills.

Footballguys view: Thielen had a big PPR day because he was a reliable short target as the Vikings were playing out the string in this one, but it wasn't exactly a comforting day if your team has key pieces of the Vikings offense. Thielen will have a tough matchup against the Rams on Thursday.

  Vikings | Latavius Murray does nothing in loss    Sun Sep 23, 04:41 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed just twice for one yard in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills and he added five receptions for 30 yards on seven targets.

Footballguys view: Murray was a dud and only bailed out folks who relied on him with some garbage time receptions. Dalvin Cook is supposedly going to be ready to play on Thursday against the Rams, but if he's not, this performance may make us think twice about plugging Murray in.

  Vikings | Forgettable day for Kirk Cousins    Sun Sep 23, 04:38 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 40-of-55 passes for 296 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Week 3 against the Buffalo Bills, but he also lost two fumbles and was sacked four times.

Footballguys view: Cousins was overwhelmed by the Bills pass rush early, and didn't do enough later to make a gameout of this. He'll face the Rams on Thursday night and probably is not a good play with his offensive line ailing and the team generating little momentum on offense.

The Minnesota Vikings have declared CB Marcus Sherels, RB Dalvin Cook, DE Jalyn Holmes, TE David Morgan, OT Bryan Witzmann, DL Everson Griffen and QB Kyle Sloter inactive for Week 3.

Footballguys view: Latavius Murray gets the start, with preseason UDFA sensations Mike Boone and Roc Thomas backing him up and getting possible garbage time work in the matchup against the Bills.

  Vikings | No doubt Dalvin Cook will play    Sat Sep 22, 06:52 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) said he has no doubts that he will be on the field in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Footballguys view: Cook feels good about his availability for next week. On Sunday, the Vikings play the hapless Bills (sorry Bills Mafia) and should have no problem with Cook out of the lineup. We'll see Latavius Murray be the lead back for the Vikings, and he makes for a great RB2 in redraft leagues or DFS play.

  Vikings | Dalvin Cook plans to play Week 4    Fri Sep 21, 08:13 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 3 but is confident that he will be able to play in Week 4.

Footballguys view: Without Cook on the field this week against the Bills, Latavius Murray makes for a great play for DFS players and redraft fantasy GMs. Cook will return to his starting ways in Week 4 and he's a RB1 anytime he's on the field.

  Vikings | Week 3 injury report for Minnesota    Fri Sep 21, 03:08 PM

Minnesota Vikings DE Everson Griffen (knee), TE David Morgan (knee) and DB Marcus Sherels (ribs) did not practice all week and have been ruled out for Week 3 versus the Buffalo Bills. C Pat Elflein (ankle, shoulder) practiced in full for a third straight day Friday, Sept. 21, but has also been ruled out. RB Mike Boone (groin) returned to a full practice Friday and is listed as questionable. CB Mackensie Alexander (ankle, thumb), CB Holton Hill (ankle), OT Rashod Hill (foot) and P Matt Wile (wrist) fully participated in practice Friday and have been removed from the injury report.

  Vikings | Everson Griffen won't play Week 3    Fri Sep 21, 01:45 PM

Minnesota Vikings DE Everson Griffen (knee) has been ruled out of the Week 3 game against the Buffalo Bills.

Footballguys view: The Vikings don't need Griffen with their deep defensive line and a not-too-imposing matchup against Josh Allen.

  Vikings | Dalvin Cook ruled out Week 3    Fri Sep 21, 01:38 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) on Friday, Sept. 21, was ruled out of the Week 3 game against the Buffalo Bills.

Footballguys view: Latavius Murray will get the start and he's a must play in this juicy matchup. SPARQ freak and preseason star Mike Boone should also get work backing up Murray.

  Vikings | Dalvin Cook still absent    Thu Sep 20, 04:22 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) sat out of practice Thursday, Sept. 20.

Footballguys view: We'll know more about Cook's playing status on Friday. If he misses the game against the Bills (no need to rush him back against this opponent) then Latavius Murray would get the starting nod for the Vikings.

  Vikings | Aldrick Robinson set to sign with Minnesota    Mon Sep 17, 02:02 PM

Free-agent WR Aldrick Robinson (49ers) will reportedly sign with the Minnesota Vikings on Monday, Sept. 17, according to NFL Network.

Footballguys view: Robinson is a veteran receiver who can work underneath routes. We don't think he'll make much of an impact for the Vikings offense.

  Vikings | Dalvin Cook OK    Mon Sep 17, 09:31 AM

Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) said he's fine, and the hamstring injury was just fatigue from the heat.

Footballguys view: Monitor Cook during the week of practice. This sounds like a minor injury but if you have the bench space then adding Latavius Murray might be a precautionary move. The Vikings get to face the hapless Bills in Week 3....meaning Cook could have a monster game if he's healthy.

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph posted seven receptions for 72 yards on eight targets in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Rudolph only had one catch last week, but he benefited from extra volume in the passing game in this one. He'll be a boom/bust play against the Bills next week.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs goes bonkers at Lambeau    Sun Sep 16, 07:57 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs posted nine receptions for 128 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 2 tie in Green Bay. He also added an important game-tying two-point conversion reception.

Footballguys view: Diggs didn't play as big a role as Adam Thielen last week, but he had a 75-yard score and some clutch short receptions in this one. He's a must play against the Bills next week.

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed four times for 19 yards in Week 2 against the Green Bay Packers.

  Vikings | Kirk Cousins tosses four TDs in tie    Sun Sep 16, 07:49 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 35-of-48 passes for 425 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in the Week 2 tie on the road against the Green Bay Packers.

Footballguys view: Cousins had an interception that could have ended the game in regulation, but it was called back by a questionable roughing the passer penalty. He is clearly on the same page as his top two receivers and should deliver expected value. He might be a top five play against the Bills next week.

  Vikings | Dalvin Cook pulls up lame in OT    Sun Sep 16, 07:20 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury in overtime of the Week 2 game with the Green Bay Packers. He ran 10 times for 38 yards while adding three grabs for 52 yards before departing.

Footballguys view: Cook looked better as a receiver then as a runner behind the piecemeal Vikings offensive line. He's probably going to be on the doubtful side next week in a great matchup against Buffalo.

  Vikings | Rashod Hill leaves game    Sun Sep 16, 03:22 PM

Footballguys view: Elflein's return won't be this week, so this beleaguered offensive line might have some trouble with Mike Daniels and company at Lambeau. The running game may still be stalled out this week.
