  Vikings | Case Keenum named Week 13 starter    Fri Nov 24, 12:24 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum will remain the starting quarterback in Week 13 versus the Atlanta Falcons, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Footballguys view: There's no need for the team to go away from Keenum. He's playing at a high level and the team is winning. In fact, the Vikings have the look of a team that can make a deep postseason run after the regular season. Teddy Bridgewater remains the backup.

  Vikings | Two sacks for Everson Griffen    Thu Nov 23, 07:58 PM

Minnesota Vikings DE Everson Griffen recorded two sacks in the team's Week 12 game against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: He also had a baby - or rather his wife did - and flashed a t-shirt after a sack looking for ideas on what to name the kid. We'd go with something Nordic like Einar (which according to BabyNames.net means 'one who fights alone') in part because we're pretty sure the kid's mom won't allow "Sackmaster 3000." Congrats both for the great game and the new addition to the family.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs finishes with 66 yards    Thu Nov 23, 07:54 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs caught five passes for 66 yards against the Detroit Lions in Week 12.

Footballguys view: Case Keenum doesn't quite utilize Diggs the way Sam Bradford did, which has relegated the receiver to second fiddle next to Adam Thielen. He's still got upside week to week but his floor is much lower than it was earlier in the season.

  Vikings | Adam Thielen continues strong play    Thu Nov 23, 07:51 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught eight passes for 89 yards against the Detroit Lions in Week 12.

Footballguys view: Thielen continues to put up solid numbers week to week, though this was the first game he didn't score in after posting touchdowns in each of the last three games. Case Keenum clearly likes Thielen and looks for him often.

  Vikings | Jerick McKinnon has decent outing    Thu Nov 23, 07:46 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed for 23 yards on 13 carries against the Detroit Lions in Week 12. He also caught one pass for 31 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Latavious Murray hit the long run Thursday, while McKinnon struggled to gain much traction. They split carries pretty evenly, but Murray had the better day. It can go either way week to week, though generally Murray gets better yards and McKinnon gets more catches. Murray also has found the end zone each of the last two games.

  Vikings | Kyle Rudolph gobbles up two scores    Thu Nov 23, 04:30 PM

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph scored both of the Vikings' receiving touchdowns Thursday, Nov. 23, catching four passes for 63 yards in total.

Footballguys view: Rudolph has had an incredibly quiet season, and we aren't expecting a repeat of a day like this. This is the highest yardage total he's had all season.

  Vikings | Latavius Murray shows up in ground game    Thu Nov 23, 04:26 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray notched 20 carries for 84 yards and a touchdown Thursday, Nov. 23.

Footballguys view: Murray looked very good, for the most part, as he gashed the Lions defense for some nice gains, including a 46-yard run. He and Jerrick McKinnon split work, but Murray was far more effective by far on Thursday. While losing Dalvin Cook was a blow, the backfield has settled into a decent rhythm.

  Vikings | Case Keenum carves up Detroit     Thu Nov 23, 04:22 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum totaled 302 yards and three touchdowns in a Thanksgiving win versus the Detroit Lions Thursday, Nov. 23.

Footballguys view: Keenum has made a super-strong argument that the quarterback job is his, at least this season. He's really found a groove in the offense and has become a pretty reliable QB2 at this point.

  Vikings | Case Keenum to draw another start    Tue Nov 21, 01:03 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum was confirmed as the starting quarterback for the team's Week 12 Thanksgiving Day game against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Keenum played well in a big game against the Rams on Sunday, and he deserves to remain as the starting quarterback. Teddy Bridgewater will continue to serve as Keenum's backup. Fantasy owners should consider Keenum a streaming option in Week 12.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs posts four receptions    Sun Nov 19, 06:43 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs managed four catches for 32 yards on six targets in Week 11 agaisnt the Los Angeles Rams.

Footballguys view: Diggs is now squarely in Adam Thielen's shadow in the Minnesota passing game. He is still a high ceiling WR3/Flex and may benefit if Thielen starts drawing the better corners, such as Darius Slay coming up on Thanksgiving.

  Vikings | Another big game for Adam Thielen    Sun Nov 19, 06:42 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen posted six receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown on nine targets in Week 11 against the Los Angeles Rams.

Footballguys view: Thielen flashed great straight line speed on his catch and run score. He has been a strong WR1 for most of the season and has a good connection with Case Keenum, although he may see Darius Slay's shutdown coverage on Thanksgiving. There's still no way you are benching him right now.

  Vikings | Jerick McKinnon totals 19 touches    Sun Nov 19, 06:41 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed 14 times for 48 yards in the Week 11 game against the Los Angeles Rams and he added five receptions for 12 yards on seven targets.

Footballguys view: McKinnon is still posting acceptable numbers in PPR leagues, but he has been the lesser Vikings back in three of the last four weeks. The game against the Lions is on an indoor fast track and on the road, but McKinnon is more a flex than the RB1 he looked like a month ago.

  Vikings | Latavius Murray punches two in    Sun Nov 19, 06:41 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed 15 times for 95 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the Week 11 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Footballguys view: Murray was strong at the goal line and continued to be the stronger of the two Vikings backs on bread and butter running plays. He's an upside RB2 in winnable matchups for the Vikings, and the Thanksgiving game at Detroit appears to be one.

  Vikings | Case Keenum tosses for 280 yards, TD    Sun Nov 19, 06:40 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum completed 27 of his 38 pass attempts for 280 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions in the Week 11 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Footballguys view: Keenum responded well against an above average pass defense coming off of a week punctuated with talk of a possible quarterback change looming. The Vikings have won six straight with him at the helm. He's a solid 2QB/Superflex option against Detroit on Thanksgiving.

  Vikings | Calf injury for Xavier Rhodes    Sun Nov 19, 01:59 PM

Minnesota Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes (calf) suffered a calf injury in Week 11 and is considered questionable to return.

Footballguys view: Rhodes has been one of the best corners in the league all year. If he can't come back, Jared Goff's job will get easier and Sammy Watkins will have a chance to get open deep.

  Vikings | Minnesota tempted to start Teddy Bridgewater    Wed Nov 15, 02:38 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater was reportedly very close to overtaking Case Keenum for the starting job in large part because the Vikings view Bridgewater as 'their franchise,' according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.

Footballguys view: Now that Bridgewater is healthy enough to play, Keenum has to be on a short leash with the Vikings. They've been winning with Keenum, but he's also thrown some interceptions along the way. So long as they keep winning, Bridgewater is likely staying as a reserve but any sort of slip and we could see him at the top of the depth chart.

  Vikings | Case Keenum will remain starter    Mon Nov 13, 04:20 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum will continue to start despite QB Teddy Bridgewater being available to return.

Footballguys view: Keenum threw four touchdowns on Sunday...but he also threw two interceptions. So long as the Vikings are winning, we don't see them being quick to pull Keenum. In deep leagues that start two QBs (or flex QBs), then hold onto Bridgewater in case he gets his shot.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen posted eight receptions for a season-high 166 yards and a touchdown on 12 targets in Week 10 against the Washington Redskins.

Footballguys view: Thielen was unstoppable, even when he was covered well or interfered with. He has an excellent connection with Case Keenum and should be considered a WR1 going forward.

  Vikings | Jerick McKinnon goes nowhere fast    Sun Nov 12, 08:51 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed 10 times for just 32 yards in Week 10 against the Washington Redskins and he added two receptions for 15 yards.

Footballguys view: McKinnon wasn't needed as much in the passing game with the wideouts doing most of the work, and Latavius Murray converted the one rushing score in this one. He has been fading a bit, but probably still deserves at least PPR flex consideration against the Rams next week.

  Vikings | Latavius Murray posts 68 yards, TD    Sun Nov 12, 08:50 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed 17 times for 68 yards with a touchdown in the Week 10 game against the Washington Redskins.

Footballguys view: Murray benefited from the Vikings leading a lot of the way in this one. He's a matchup RB2/Flex and worth a look in a home game against a good Rams team next week.

  Vikings | Case Keenum tosses four TDs    Sun Nov 12, 08:24 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum completed 21 of his 29 pass attempts for 304 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions in the Week 10 win against the Washington Redskins.

Footballguys view: Keenum was wheeling and dealing to his talented wide receiver duo and making Washington's defense look powerless to stop them. He might have been motivated by the return of Teddy Bridgewater. Keenum is certainly worth a look as a bye/streamer option against the Rams next week.

The Minnesota Vikings have declared DL Everson Griffen, OT Jeremiah Sirles, QB Kyle Sloter, RB Mack Brown, OT Mike Remmers, WR Stacy Coley, DE Tashawn Bower inactive for Week 10.

Footballguys view: Griffen was expected to play but won't. The Vikings have a very good third end in Brian Robison, but this is a hit to their pass rush and could help Kirk Cousins be more effective today, especially because his offensive line is getting healthier.

  Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater better than ever?    Fri Nov 10, 09:44 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) is throwing the ball better than he was before his knee injury, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network.

Footballguys view: It would be great if Bridgewater can get back in the starting lineup and thrive with the Vikings. He's back this week, but it will be as a reserve behind Case Keenum. We'd have to see the Vikings struggle with Keenum as the starter before Bridgewater would get that top spot.
