From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Sam Bradford's knee was enough of a problem to cause him to miss Week 2. While he should be back this week, the chances of Bridgewater mattering in fantasy leagues this year is going up. He will be on the PUP list until at least Week 7.

Week 3: vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers

All QB vs TB

FBG says: Neutral matchup. It remains to be seen if Sam Bradford will play and if he does not play, it will once again be Case Keenum for the Vikings in this game. Keenum who averaged just 4.51 yards per target in his first game as a Vikings starting quarterback would be a big negative to this offense compared to Bradford who had a terrific week one against the Saints. The Vikings will limit the offense in an attempt to run the ball and control the ball without asking Keenum to do much in this offense as Keenum only completed 20 of 37 passes last week. From a wide receiver standpoint, Kyle Rudolph, Laquon Treadwell, Adam Thielen, and Stefon Diggs all saw 6 targets this past week with Rudolph leading the way with 45 yards. The Buccaneers secondary largely shut down the Bears defense in the first half holding them scoreless led by Pro Bowl cornerback Brent Grimes. If you look at the overall numbers the Bears did throw for 301 yards in this game which was largely due to garbage time at the end of the game as the Buccaneers were up 26-0 at halftime. Grimes will primarily lineup on the outside on Stefon Diggs, but the matchup to potentially exploit is cornerback Robert McClain who continues to be a subpar slot corner and his matchup against Adam Thielen this week. Last week, Kendall Wright out of the slot had 10 targets 7 receptions for 69 yards against McClain and this will be a clear area where the Vikings will target this upcoming week.
