  Vikings | Minnesota claims Ameer Abdullah    Wed Nov 7, 04:22 PM

The Minnesota Vikings claimed RB Ameer Abdullah off waivers from the Detroit Lions Wednesday, Nov. 7.

Footballguys view: The Vikings add Abdullah and let go of Roc Thomas in a corresponding move. Abdullah failed to impress with the Lions after they took him in the second round of the 2015 NFL draft. He'll serve as a change-of-pace back and veteran depth behind Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray.

  Vikings | Adam Thielen slowed by calf injury in Week 9    Mon Nov 5, 02:06 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (calf) dealt with a calf injury all week and was heating it on the sideline between series during the team's win against the Detroit Lions, according to FOX Sports sideline reporter Jen Hale.

Footballguys view: For the first time this year, Thielen was held to under 100-yards receiving on the day. He shared an NFL record with eight 100-yard receiving games to begin the season, tying the mark of Calvin Johnson. Thielen has a bye week to get healthy before the Vikings get back in action against the Bears in Week 11.

  Vikings | Adam Thielen's 100-yard streak ends    Sun Nov 4, 05:31 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen registered four receptions for 22 yards and a touchdown in Week 9 against the Detroit Lions, ending his NFL record-tying streak of eight-straight games with 100 or more yards.

Footballguys view: Thielen didn't really need to break a sweat with the Lions never really threatening in this one. This result shouldn't affect your perception of his value going forward.

  Vikings | Latavius Murray finds end zone    Sun Nov 4, 04:53 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray ran 10 times for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Week 9 game against the Detroit Lions and he added a 16-yard grab on his only target.

Footballguys view: Murray had a touchdown that looked like a fumble at first to make an acceptable score for anyone that relied on him with the uncertainty about Dalvin Cook hanging over the Vikings backfield. He'll likely go back to being a mere handcuff after the bye, but one that has proven he is at the top of his game this year.

  Vikings | Dalvin Cook back with 89 yards    Sun Nov 4, 04:52 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed 10 times for 89 yards in Week 9 against the Detroit Lions and he added four receptions for 20 yards.

Footballguys view: Cook had a 70-yard run to show his hamstring is just fine and he was heavily involved early. He has the look of an RB1 or at least strong RB2 after the bye.

  Vikings | Kirk Cousins tosses TD in victory    Sun Nov 4, 04:44 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 18-of-22 passes for 164 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 9 win against the Detroit Lions.

Footballguys view: Cousins didn't have to exert himself much as the Vikings defense held the Lions without a touchdown and scored one of their own. It was a dud for Cousins heading into the bye, but he's still a QB1 for the stretch run.

  Vikings | Dalvin Cook to have small role    Sat Nov 3, 11:40 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) is expected to be available for a package of plays against the Detroit Lions in Week 9.

Footballguys view: Cook isn't worth playing on this news, but it could take some of the shine off of Latavius Murray as a play today. Murray is still a high ceiling RB2/Flex because of the matchup, but his floor gets lower if Cook takes 15-20 snaps.

Minnesota Vikings practice squad WR Chad Beebe was signed to the 53-man roster Saturday, Nov. 3. Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The team also waived OT Storm Norton.

Footballguys view: Beebe, the son of former Bills standout Don Beebe, caught nine passes for 95 yards and two touchdowns in the preseason. Activating him from the practice squad shows how concerned the Vikings are with Stefon Diggs as he missed the entire week of practice due to a rib injury.

  Vikings | Latavius Murray primed for big day?    Fri Nov 2, 10:34 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray faces the Detroit Lions in Week 9, and the Lions are allowing the second-most yards per carry and a league-high 144.6 rushing yards per game.

Footballguys view: Going up against the Lions as the lead back for the Vikings, Murray has RB2 appeal. He's done a good job of producing consistently while Dalvin Cook has been out.

  Vikings | Questionable tag for Stefon Diggs    Fri Nov 2, 05:28 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (rib) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 9.

Footballguys view: Diggs has said he will play and his ceiling is too high to bench as long as he is active, but know that he has had trouble playing through nicks and bumps in the past. The good news is that the Vikings bye is coming up next week.

  Vikings | Dalvin Cook to play limited snaps?    Fri Nov 2, 01:11 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) could return and play limited snaps in Week 9 against the Detroit Lions, sources said Friday, Nov. 2.

Footballguys view: Cook is still not an advisable play, and Cook fantasy teams should hope the Vikings hold him out through the bye. While Cook could pull a Matt Breida and play more than expected, ruining Latavius Murray's outlook, the matchup is good and Murray has been playing well, so he still deserves RB2 consideration.

Footballguys view: Rhodes could return for the game this week and make life harder for Marvin Jones or Kenny Golladay - he has usually matched up with Jones in the past.
