From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 20): Bridgewater isn't any closer to starting than he was before Week 11. Mike Zimmer could install him as soon as Case Keenum falters, but Bridgewater is only a speculative hold in 2QB/Superflex leagues right now.

Week 12: at Detroit Lions

All QB vs DET

FBG says: Tough matchup. Case Keenum did a great job in a tough matchup against the Rams last week as he led the Vikings to a statement victory. Keenum passed for at least 280 yards for the third straight week and had his first game without an interception since Week 5. Keenum has now completed over 70% of his passes for two straight weeks as he is making a great case to retain the starting job while Teddy Bridgewater continues to warm the bench. Adam Thielen is absolutely balling out this season as he continued his dominance last week with six receptions for 123 yards and a touchdown. Thielen now has a touchdown in three straight games after failing to find the end zone in his first seven outings, averaging just under 130 receiving yards per game across that span and ranking as the league's top fantasy wide receiver in points per game since Week 8. Stefon Diggs has taken a back seat to Thielen as he has just four receptions in each of his last three games with a couple of games below 35 total yards over that span. Last week, Diggs was up against tough coverage while Thielen was matched up against a rookie--so take that into consideration as well. Kyle Rudolph had a good game last week as he finished with a season-high 58 receiving yards. While he is not putting up huge numbers with just two touchdowns in his last six games, Rudolph remains consistently involved in the offense as he has between five and six receptions in each those last six games. The Lions have had very soft matchups in their last three games, facing the likes of Brett Hundley, Deshone Kizer, and Mitchell Trubisky. Naturally, this passing defense has excelled, allowing just three passing touchdowns and an average of 220 passing yards per game. On the season though, the Lions have been just an average pass defense. Darius Slay is certainly one of the best cornerbacks in the league while Glover Quin has been an elite safety, but they have some holes in that secondary and linebacker core outside of those two studs. It will be interesting to see how the Lions use Slay this week, as one would think that opposing defenses will not let Adam Thielen continue to dominate as he has been this season. Slay has played just two percent of his snaps covering slot receivers this season though, and Thielen lines up in the slot for over 50% of his snaps. Look for Slay to cover more of Diggs here, while Thielen should have an average matchup against Quandre Diggs, who has been much improved this season after being one of the worst cornerbacks in the league in 2016.

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.

Our 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.

Our 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.

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.

Our 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.

Vikings | Minnesota injury report for Friday (Fri Nov 10, 04:25 PM) - Minnesota Vikings OT Mike Remmers (concussion) and OG Jeremiah Sirles (knee) did not practice Friday, Nov. 10, and they have been ruled out for Week 10 against the Washington Redskins. DE Everson Griffen (foot) was a limited participant, while S Anthony Harris (hamstring) and DE Stephen Weatherly (knee) practiced in full. All three are listed as questionable. QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee), WR Stefon Diggs (tooth), OF Nick Easton (calf), WR Michael Floyd (hamstring), OG Danny Isidora (ankle) and WR Laquon Treadwell (toe) practiced in full and were removed from the injury report.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater takes part in practice (Thu Nov 9, 05:59 PM) - Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 9.

Our View: Case Keenum will still get the start, and Bridgewater may not even dress for Sunday. But it's a good sign. we still need to see him on the field in an actual game before we start getting excited about him playing, but it will be nice for the Vikings to have their potential future quarterback back under Center.
