  Vikings | Stefon Diggs questionable for opener    Fri Sep 6, 02:07 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (hamstring) is listed as questionable for the team's Week 1 game against the Atlanta Falcons. Asked if he thinks Diggs will be able to play, head coach Mike Zimmer said 'we'll see' Friday, Sept. 6.

Footballguys view: Diggs is basically a game time decision, which means err on the side of benching him. He doesn't have a good track record of play in games when he was on the injury report. Adam Thielen becomes a strong DFS play with this news.

  Vikings | Minnesota inks Josh Doctson    Mon Sep 2, 03:45 PM

Free-agent WR Josh Doctson (Redskins) signed a one-year undisclosed contract with the Minnesota Vikings on Monday, Sept. 2.

Footballguys view: Even though he found a new home rather quickly after being released by Washington, we don't think Doctson makes a huge impact with the Vikings. Doctson did play with Kirk Cousins in Washington, but he's buried on the depth chart behind guys like Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, Chad Beebe and Olabasi Johnson.

  Vikings | Ameer Abdullah catches TD    Thu Aug 29, 10:04 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Ameer Abdullah rushed five times for 21 yards and caught a 15-yard touchdown in a 27-23 preseason loss to the Buffalo Bills Thursday, Aug. 29.

Footballguys view: The 2015 second-round pick is probably going to the street in favor of Mike Boone as the #3 back in Minnesota. He could be on tryout lists and get back on a roster at some point this year, but it's clear that he's never going to fulfill expectations in the NFL.

  Vikings | Two Vikings released    Tue Aug 27, 09:39 AM

Minnesota Vikings CB Bene Benwikere and WR Jordan Taylor were released Tuesday, Aug. 27.

Footballguys view: The Vikings give Taylor a bit of a head start here. He was competing for a spot at the end of the bench at the wide receiver position. Taylor is big and fast but runs a limited route tree. Perhaps he'll wind up back with the Broncos, the team that originally picked him up as an undrafted free agent out of Rice in 2015.
