Week 14: at Jacksonville Jaguars

All WR vs JAX

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Sam Bradford threw 32/45 for 247 yards, one TD and zero interceptions against the Cowboys last week (taking two sacks for -15 yards). He banged up his ribs during the game, but returned to action (fantasy owners invested in Minnesota's passing game should monitor his practice participation later in the week, just in case he aggravates the injury). During the contest, Adam Thielen (nine targets for 7/86/0 receiving), Stefon Diggs (eight for 8/59/0) and Kyle Rudolph (12 for 6/45/0) dominated targets, but Jerick McKinnon (six for 5/14/1) handled the lone TD. The Jaguars' defense wasn't challenged in this phase of the game much last week by rookie Paxton Lynch (12/24 for 102 net yards passing, with two sacks taken for -2 yards), but the still lost 10-20. Buffalo managed 12/18 for 151 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown two weeks ago (with five sacks taken for -15 yards) - Jacksonville has had some weak pass offenses to face in the recent past. To date, Jacksonville averages 195.8 net passing yards allowed per game (second-least in the NFL) with 15 passing scores given out, but they have a mere three interceptions this year (dead last in the NFL) and 26 sacks generated (tied for 14th in the NFL). From Week 10 to Week 13 of the 2016 season (over the last four weeks, but includes 10 teams on bye during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), Jacksonville has averaged 14.4 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (second-least in the NFL); and 11.4 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (least in the league); with 7.8 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (14th-most). This looks like a tough matchup for the limited Vikings' attack.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 10 vs WAS (1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)

We didn't even know he was on the team anymore. Given the lack of targets (and the grand total of four snaps he was on the field), Sam Bradford and coach Mike Zimmer might now be aware either.

2016 Week 5 vs HOU (4 / 4 / 32 / 0 rec)

We can take his face off milk cartons now. Wright has only been active one other game (Week 3 against Carolina) and notched his first reception this week as he came off the bench since Stefan Diggs was out. Quarterback Sam Bradford used him mostly when he needed to get the ball out quickly, though two of the four catches Wright had went for first downs.
