  Vikings | Kyle Rudolph held to one catch    Sun Sep 24, 05:07 PM

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph caught one pass for four yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3.

Footballguys view: The Vikings dominant wide receiver play is great for the passing game but terrible for Rudolph's fantasy prospects. He's not droppable yet, but hard to start against the Lions next week.

  Vikings | Adam Thielen nearly reaches 100 yards    Sun Sep 24, 05:04 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught five passes for 98 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Thielen wasn't in many lineups today after the Vikings Week 2 struggles on offense, but that probably won't happen again. He has turned into one of the better downfield receivers in the league, and the Vikings offense is taking a lot more shots downfield with a better offensive line. He's a fantasy WR2 against the Lions next week.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs scores twice    Sun Sep 24, 05:00 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs caught eight passes for 173 yards and two touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Diggs was outstanding and ruled a downfield passing game that was almost non-existent last week. He's back to being a WR1 for fantasy even without Sam Bradford on the field.

  Vikings | Dalvin Cook a big factor for Vikings    Sun Sep 24, 04:56 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed for 97 yards and one touchdown on 27 carries against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3. He also caught five passes for 72 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Cook was the engine of the offense on the first drive and helped the offense find their way after a tough Week 2. He's a no brainer RB1 heading into a matchup with the Lions next week.

  Vikings | Case Keenum throws three TDs    Sun Sep 24, 04:52 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum went 25-for-33 for 369 yards and three touchdowns against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3.

Footballguys view: Keenum was a revelation after the Steelers made him look powerless to move the ball last week. The Bucs defense was stifled Mike Glennon last week, but couldn't slow down Keenum, who might get another start next week against the Lions as the Vikings can feel like they should take their time with Sam Bradford now.

  Vikings | Sam Bradford remains week-to-week    Sun Sep 24, 10:51 AM

A second opinion from Dr. James Andrews confirmed that Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) has no structural damage in his left knee, according to multiple sources. He is considered week-to-week due to a bone bruise.

Footballguys view: Bradford may rest, including practice, until the pain subsidizes, but this examination should alleviate any fears Bradford or team has about the soundness of his knee. The offense could be back to full strength in a week or two, but will have a rough go of it today against the Bucs.

  Vikings | Dalvin Cook wants to start stronger    Sun Sep 24, 12:48 AM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook has 14 carries for 25 yards in the first halves of his two games this year and 20 carries for 166 yards in the second halves, and he said he is working on being more effective early in games.

  Vikings | Jarius Wright happy to see the field    Sat Sep 23, 10:38 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Jarius Wright has played 27 snaps through the first two games this year after not playing any snaps in the first two games last year. 'Whenever I'm needed, I go in and make plays,' Wright said. 'That's what I do and what I'll continue to do.'

  Vikings | Six players work out for Minnesota Friday    Sat Sep 23, 10:38 AM

Free-agent TEs Brandon Z. Barnes (Lions), Gavin Escobar (Chiefs) and Scott Orndoff (Steelers), S A.J. Hendy (Dolphins) and DEs Pat O'Connor (Lions) and Devin Taylor (Giants) worked out for the Minnesota Vikings Friday, Sept. 22.

Footballguys view: The Vikings are just updating their emergency list here, and clearly they're looking at some tight ends available on the open market.

  Vikings | Sam Bradford seeks second opinion    Fri Sep 22, 06:21 PM

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) is out for Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he is seeking a second opinion on his ailing knee.

Footballguys view: A second opinion in this case will only open Bradford up to worse diagnoses than a bone bruise. His absence could be a lot longer than two weeks.

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 22, and has been ruled out for Week 3.

  Vikings | Sam Bradford ruled out Week 3    Fri Sep 22, 01:40 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) has been ruled out for Week 3 versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Footballguys view: Case Keenum will get the start which basically means to get all Vikings except maybe Dalvin Cook out of your lineup. The Buccaneers are just as tough a matchup as the Week 2 Steelers defense that mercilessly harassed Keenum, if not tougher, although the Vikings will be at home.

  Vikings | Sam Bradford limited     Thu Sep 21, 04:46 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 21.

Footballguys view: The Vikings are praying Bradford can play this weekend because the offense stopped dead in its tracks with Case Keenum under center, which hurt the value for every other player in the Minnesota offense.

  Vikings | Sam Bradford puts in limited practice     Wed Sep 20, 04:49 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 20.

Footballguys view: Things are trending towards Bradford playing in Week 3. If he does get back out there after missing last week's game against the Steelers, Bradford could elevate the play of the pass catchers on the roster. Guys like WR Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs and TE Kyle Rudolph would benefit from Bradford's return. Check back Friday to see which way his status is trending for Week 3.

  Vikings | Sam Bradford improving    Wed Sep 20, 11:33 AM

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was feeling better Tuesday, Sept. 19, and he's being considered day to day, according to head coach Mike Zimmer.

Footballguys view: Bradford missed the Week 2 game against the Steelers due to this knee injury. It looks like Case Keenum will head back to the bench and Bradford will be out there against the Buccaneers. His return should help the numbers for guys like WRs Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs and TE Kyle Rudolph.

  Vikings | Sam Bradford dealing with bruise?    Mon Sep 18, 02:51 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) is believed to have a bone bruise in his injured knee, according to a source.

Footballguys view: Bradford will have to deal with swelling and pain in his knee after taking a big hit in the season opener. He will be given an injection after which the Vikings will assess how the knee responds and go from there.

  Vikings | Sam Bradford could be back for Week 3    Mon Sep 18, 10:28 AM

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) just had swelling and discomfort from taking a shot to his knee, and he could return in Week 3, according NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. His status will depend on how he responds to treatment.

Footballguys view: It's early, but it looks like Bradford should be ready to go for the team's Week 3 game against the Buccaneers. It's a tough matchup to return for as the Bucs defense is swarming and aggressive at all three levels. Watch Bradford's status as the week of practice continues.

  Vikings | Stefon Diggs has quiet day    Sun Sep 17, 05:56 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs caught two passes for 27 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Diggs looked like a budding fantasy WR1 after one week with Sam Bradford, and he looks like end of the bench fodder without him. We'll have to watch Bradford's status closely to know what to do with Diggs in Week 3.

  Vikings | Adam Thielen catches five passes    Sun Sep 17, 05:48 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught five passes for 44 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Thielen and the rest of the Vikings pass offense sorely misses Sam Bradford. Hopefully some rest will help Bradford's knee calm down and allow him to play at a level close to the Week 1 mastery against the Saints. The Saints defense was the same against Tom Brady and the Patriots today, so perhaps Bradford won't approach that kind of production again this year anyway.

  Vikings | Dalvin Cook has decent outing    Sun Sep 17, 05:29 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed for 64 yards on 12 carries against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2.

Footballguys view: Cook was still explosive but didn't get much in the passing game with Case Keenum. The whole Vikings offense has taken a huge step back without Sam Bradford.

  Vikings | Case Keenum throws for 167 yards    Sun Sep 17, 05:19 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum went 20-for-37 for 167 yards against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2.

Footballguys view: It was as bad as the worst fears of the Vikings offense, not at all helped by a blitz-heavy Steelers approach on defense. The Bucs defense was stifling against Mike Glennon en route to a near shutout, and the Vikings prospects won't be much better next week if Sam Bradford is out again.

  Vikings | Case Keenum to start Week 2    Sun Sep 17, 10:59 AM

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum will be the starting quarterback against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 2 in place of QB Sam Bradford (knee), according to sources.

Footballguys view: Dalvin Cook is the only Vikings skill player worth playing with Keenum in unless you don't have a viable option to replace Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, or Kyle Rudolph.

  Vikings | Xavier Rhodes expected to play    Sun Sep 17, 08:57 AM

Minnesota Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes (hip) is expected to play in Week 2's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was limited during the team's two most recent practice sessions and was listed as questionable on the injury report.

Footballguys view: Rhodes will have his hands full with the Steelers wide receivers, so this could help Antonio Brown or Martavis Bryant's chances of breaking a big play today.

  Vikings | Sam Bradford travels with team    Sat Sep 16, 04:04 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) traveled with the team for their Week 2 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers but is still questionable for the game.

Footballguys view: Bradford is on track to start against the Steelers on Sunday. Even with the knee injury, fantasy owners in 2-QB leagues should get Bradford in. Bradford is also an option for fantasy owners streaming QBs in 2017.

  Vikings | Kyle Sloter added to active roster    Sat Sep 16, 03:14 PM

Minnesota Vikings practice squad QB Kyle Sloter was signed to the active roster Saturday, Sept. 16. The team also waived S Antone Exum.

Footballguys view: With Sam Bradford (knee) banged up, the Vikings are activating Sloter just in case. Sloter is a dynasty prospect we took notice of because of a fantastic preseason with the Broncos.

  Vikings | Latavius Murray not concerned    Sat Sep 16, 12:10 AM

Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray said he is not worried about his lack of touches in Week 1. 'It doesn't determine anything at this point,' Murray said. 'It's still very early. I got a lot of work to do and as a team we have a lot of work to do still.'

Footballguys view: Fantasy owners aren't worried about Murray's lack of touches because hardly anyone should be stashing him on the roster. Murray is the clear backup to rookie Dalvin Cook and he won't see much time unless something happens to Cook.

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 15, and is listed as questionable for Week 2.

Footballguys view: Bradford should play, but Week 1 is looking like a likely high point if this knee issue that has caused an MRI and concern affects his play at all. This development could encourage you to break ties against him.

  Vikings | Minnesota concerned about Sam Bradford?    Fri Sep 15, 01:04 PM

Minnesota Vikings QB Sam Bradford (knee) reportedly underwent an MRI this week, and the team has 'guarded optimism but concern' about his availability for Week 2 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Footballguys view: Bradford should play in Week 2 and be a viable play in 2QB/Superflex leagues or for streamers, but his year-long outlook is getting cloudier. Teddy Bridgewater may start for this team by the end of the year. While Bridgewater is on the PUP, it's Case Keenum behind Bradford.

  Vikings | Dalvin Cook's role will continue    Thu Sep 14, 01:51 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook will keep being used as a workhorse running back, according to offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur. Cook received 25 touches in the Vikings' Week 1 win.

Footballguys view: We were concerned that, after the mishmosh of last year, the Vikings might have forgotten how to use a bellcow back, but clearly Cook is a guy they know what to do with. The Steelers are a tougher test for him, but we loved what we saw from him last week and think he'll be able to have some success even in this game. Consider him a rock-solid RB2 this week despite the matchup.
