From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 18): Keenum never had a chance against the Steeler relentless blitzing. He'll likely go back to the bench this week, but Sam Bradford's knee issue means that Keenum could start again at any time, at least until Teddy Bridgewater is activated from the PUP

General News (Fri Sep 22): will be the starter again in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with Sam Bradford on the shelf.

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.

Recent Game Summaries

2017 Week 2 vs PIT (20 / 37 / 167 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)

Case Keenum really looked like a backup quarterback this week and was unable to get anything going with the offense. Keenum completed only 54% of his passes and was unable to find the end zone. The one bright note for the backup quarterback was he did not turn the ball over. Keenum was able to find Kyle Rudolph for a long 27-yard gain but even this ball was thrown high and Rudolph had to make a spectacular one-handed grab. The Vikings quarterback had two more passes over 20 yards to Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs respectively but was not consistent enough to keep the ball moving. The Vikings have to hope that Bradford's knee is good to go for next week or they can expect similar results next week against the Buccaneers.

Vikings | Case Keenum gets nod in Week 3 (Fri Sep 22, 06:21 PM) - Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum will be the starter again in Week 3 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with QB Sam Bradford (knee) on the shelf.

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.

Our 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.

Our 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.
