Huddle Up: There's no telling when Bridgewater will be back to full health and be able to take the field again. In the meantime, Sam Bradford will continue to start. And while he is coming off a career year, Bradford's numbers just aren't good enough for him to be considered a QB1.

Huddle Up: Bridgewater is still working his way back from a devastating knee injury, and he may not be ready to play at all in 2017. Look for Sam Bradford to open the year as the starter, but he is a mediocre QB2 for fantasy owners.

Huddle Up: The Vikings are Sam Bradford's team going forward. Bradford is coming off a career year in which he threw for 3,877 yards and 20 touchdowns while throwing only five picks. The numbers don't jump off the page, but he was extremely efficient. That being said, Bradford just doesn't produce enough to warrant QB1 consideration.

Huddle Up: Bridgewater is probably not someone you can expect to see the first half of the season, if at all in 2017.

Huddle Up: Whether or not Bridgewater will be ready for Week 1 of the 2017 season remains to be seen, but he may not even start even if he is ready. That being said, neither Sam Bradford nor Bridgewater should be drafted as QB1.

Huddle Up: Bridgewater is likely to miss the entire 2017 season as he continues his recovery. Sam Bradford should continue to start in his place, but he is a low-upside QB2.

Huddle Up: A 19-month recovery would put Bridgewater on the shelf until March of 2018. Sam Bradford will enter this summer as the clear starter in the final season of his two-year deal and should be considered a midrange QB2 in fantasy.

Huddle Up: Bridgewater is likely to miss a calendar year or more, and the team snatched Sam Bradford from the Philadelphia Eagles. Bradford has a lot of physical talent, but it just hasn't shown up on game day. He's a midrange QB2 that could perform well in spurts if he remains protected.

Huddle Up: Bridgewater will miss the entire 2016 season because of his serious knee injury, and owners will need to monitor the situation to see if he will be ready for the 2017 season. Shaun Hill likely will be the starting quarterback for the Vikings this season but should only be a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues.

Huddle Up: With the franchise quarterback going down, drop Stefon Diggs and Laquon Treadwell down on your draft sheets, as the quarterback play will be significantly degraded. Adrian Peterson will have to carry a much bigger load in 2016, and that's good news for his fantasy stock, although you can expect teams to stack the box daring the Vikings to pass with whomever they tab as the signal caller. Shaun Hill is likely to take over due to his knowledge of the offense, since he is the in-house guy, but expect Mark Sanchez, Colin Kaepernick or another veteran free-agent to get a call as well.

Huddle Up: One can expect Bridgewater to miss a good deal of time this season. This is Shaun Hill's team to quarterback right now, but look for the Vikings to add someone. As far as Hill's fantasy value, he is really only viable in good matchups and/or as a bye-week replacement.
Posted: 8/30/2016 12:09pm ET
Huddle Up: Non-contact injuries are never a good sign; it sounds like it could be something serious for Minnesota's starting thrower. Shaun Hill is a capable backup, but he doesn't have the fantasy appeal that Bridgewater does and would only be worth a bye-week start in a good matchup. Stay tuned for updates on Bridgewater's status.
Posted: 8/28/2016 6:42pm ET
Huddle Up: Although Bridgewater appears healthy, his ceiling is limited by Minnesota's run-heavy offense. He is a mediocre QB2 option.
Posted: 8/28/2016 9:27am ET
Huddle Up: Bridgewater dealt with a sore shoulder earlier in training camp but appears to be fine. He probably will improve on his status from 2015 but should still be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback since Adrian Peterson will continue to see a lot of work.
Posted: 8/24/2016 2:16pm ET
Huddle Up: It is not known how much playing time Bridgewater will receive if he is active for the game, but it would be a good sign if he is able to play. He probably should be considered a No. 2 quarterback in fantasy leagues since the Vikings are more of a running team and will not throw as much as other teams.
Posted: 8/19/2016 3:50pm ET
Huddle Up: Bridgewater probably will be able to play in the next preseason game, but owners should keep an eye on the situation. The Vikings probably will continue to be more of a running team this season, which makes Bridgewater a No. 2 quarterback in most fantasy leagues.
Posted: 8/7/2016 12:48pm ET
Huddle Up: Training-camp practice or not, a number of eyes are trained on the third-year QB, looking for tangible signs of progress after back-to-back 14-TD-pass seasons. As for standard-size fantasy leagues, he's on the outside looking in until he shows otherwise.
