• Sam Bradford - QB
    Posted 2/22/18 2:52pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Sam Bradford wants to play next season.

    Huddle Up: Several teams will be looking for a quarterback this season, but it is not known if Bradford will be able to find a starting job. He would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if he starts for a team.

  • Case Keenum - QB
    Posted 2/18/18 6:22pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Case Keenum is still the favorite to return as the starter in 2018 because offensive coordinator John DeFilippo prefers athletic quarterbacks, according to Charley Walters of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

    Huddle Up: Keenum had a breakout campaign in 2017, and if he does return as Minnesota's starter, he should be a solid QB2.

  • Laquon Treadwell - WR
    Posted 2/16/18 8:46pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell could be shopped this offseason for a draft pick, according to Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com.

    Huddle Up: Treadwell has been a bust in Minnesota, and a change of scenery could be best for both him and the Vikings at this point. Treadwell value is limited to dynasty leagues for now.

  • Dalvin Cook - RB
    Posted 2/2/18 8:34pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (knee) has 'progressed nicely' from his knee surgery, general manager Rick Spielman said Thursday, Feb. 1, and Spielman said Cook could have the same success that Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson had coming off his knee surgery in 2012.

    Huddle Up: Although it's a reach to suggest Cook could threaten the NFL rushing record and win MVP honors like Peterson did in his return from ACL surgery, Cook showed enough potential prior to his injury to make him a RB2 candidate in 2018.

  • Teddy Bridgewater - QB
    Posted 2/1/18 10:47pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater could have his contract tolled, which would put him back under contract with the Vikings for 2018 at his salary rate ($1.354 million) from the past season as opposed to entering unrestricted free agency. The issue stems from Bridgewater spending the first six weeks of this past season on the PUP list and whether or not he was medically cleared at any point before those six weeks elapsed. GM Rick Spielman indicated the decision to have the contract tolled would come from the NFL and the NFLPA, and not from the Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Got all that? It's an obscure rule, but it could at least potentially take Bridgewater off the market, though the speculation is the NFLPA would file a grievance if the NFL tried to toll his contract. At this point it's just wait and see for Bridgewater, who figures to draw some interest on the open market.

  • Adam Thielen - WR
    Posted 1/31/18 10:54pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (back) indicated that the back fractures he sustained during the Divisional Round win over the New Orleans Saints were not serious, and he is 'pretty much healthy' heading into the offseason.

    Huddle Up: Thielen built on a solid 2016 with a 91-1,276-4 line this past season. The lack of TDs (10 in 180 career receptions) are the only thing keeping Thielen as a WR2, though he adds some value in PPR formats.

  • Sam Bradford - QB
    Posted 1/23/18 12:19pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Case Keenum's future with the Vikings is in limbo. Head coach Mike Zimmer said the Vikings will go through the process of determining who their starting quarterback will be next season. Keenum and fellow QBs Teddy Bridgewater and Sam Bradford are all in the running.

    Huddle Up: Keenum deserves to be the top candidate to start in 2018 after his coming out party that led the Vikings to the NFC Championship. Minnesota does have three gunslingers with starter caliber, but none of them are reliable week-to-week starting fantasy quarterbacks.

  • Teddy Bridgewater - QB
    Posted 1/22/18 9:29am ET

    Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater said he views himself as a starting quarterback next season but is not sure if it will be with the Vikings.

    Huddle Up: Bridgewater is one of three Vikings quarterbacks that will be free agents this offseason, so he could hit the free-agent market this offseason. He should have a decent chance to find a starting job if he decides to sign with another team. Bridgewater can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if he finds a starting job.

  • Dalvin Cook - RB
    Posted 1/22/18 9:52am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (knee) said he is able to do some jogging but does not have a timetable for when he will return to football activities.

    Huddle Up: Cook probably will not do much during offseason workouts but should have a good chance to be ready for the start of the 2018 season. He played well before suffering his injury this season and should have a similar role in 2018. He can be a No. 2 or No. 3 running back in fantasy leagues next season.

  • Case Keenum - QB
    Posted 1/22/18 10:53am ET

    Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent QB Case Keenum said he has not received any indication from the Vikings on if they want to re-sign him this offseason.

    Huddle Up: Keenum is one of three Vikings quarterbacks that will be unrestricted free agents this offseason, but it is not known which quarterback the Vikings will look to re-sign. Keenum finished the regular season with 3,547 yards and 22 touchdowns after taking over the starting job early in the season. He probably will be a starting quarterback for a team in 2018 and should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB
    Posted 1/22/18 11:16am ET

    Minnesota Vikings impending free-agent RB Jerick McKinnon said he would like to be a featured back for a team next season.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon likely will not return to the Vikings if he wants to be a No. 1 running back for a team. He may have trouble finding a starting job but would receive interest from several teams looking for a change-of-pace back. McKinnon has a chance to be a No. 3 or No. 4 fantasy running back in 2018 depending on his role.

  • Adam Thielen - WR
    Posted 1/21/18 5:52am ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (back) is expected to play in the NFC Championship game against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday, Jan. 21, despite being in plenty of pain due to a lower back ailment, according to multiple sources.

    Huddle Up: Thielen took part on a limited basis in two of the team's three practice sessions during the week and was listed as questionable on the injury report. He should be viewed as a low-end WR1 or high-end WR2 in postseason fantasy games.

  • Adam Thielen - WR
    Posted 1/21/18 12:43pm ET

    Updating previous reports, Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (back) suffered a couple of slight fractures in his back during the Divisional Round playoff game but plans to play in the NFC Championship game, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: Thielen probably will see a normal workload despite the injury and should be one of the main options in the passing game. He can be a No. 1 or No. 2 fantasy receiver this week.

  • Adam Thielen - WR
    Posted 1/21/18 2:22pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (back) is officially active for the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Thielen will be able to play despite the back injury and should have a solid role in the passing game. He can be a No. 1 or No. 2 fantasy wide receiver in most leagues this week.

  • Case Keenum - QB
    Posted 1/21/18 6:13pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum could receive the franchise tag, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

    Huddle Up: Minnesota will have some big decisions to make about the quarterback position this offseason. If Keenum does end up back under center to start 2018, he will be worth a look as a QB2.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB
    Posted 1/21/18 6:50pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon rushed 10 times for 40 yards in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Jan. 21, and he added 11 receptions for 86 yards on 12 targets.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon might have played his final game in purple and white, as he heads into the offseason as an impending unrestricted free agent. His fantasy value in 2018 obviously hinges on whether he lands in a favorable situation or not.

  • Case Keenum - QB
    Posted 1/21/18 6:15pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum completed 28 of his 48 pass attempts for 271 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, Jan. 21.

    Huddle Up: Keenum did a good job holding down the fort with Sam Bradford and Teddy Bridgewater missing huge chunks of the season due to injury, and he almost carried them to the Super Bowl. He will head into the offseason as an impending unrestricted free agent. The way he played he might find a starting job in 2018.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE
    Posted 1/21/18 7:38pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph caught one pass, a 25-yard touchdown, in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Rudolph saw a significant drop in his reception and yardage totals in 2017, but his eight touchdowns were the second most of his career. He will be a low-end TE1 candidate for 2018.

  • Adam Thielen - WR
    Posted 1/21/18 7:52pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen caught three passes on nine targets for 28 yards in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: His back injury could have played a role in his poor outing, but the Vikings were never really in a rhythm on offense. Overall, it was an excellent season for Thielen, and he should be a high floor WR2 in 2018, especially in PPR formats.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR
    Posted 1/21/18 7:47pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs caught eight passes on 12 targets for 70 yards in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Diggs' best fantasy season was bolstered by eight touchdowns, and the 24-year-old will be in the WR2 mix heading into 2018.

  • Latavius Murray - RB
    Posted 1/21/18 8:10pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray rushed six times for 18 yards and caught two passes for 11 yards in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: It was a forgettable end to what turned out to be a solid season for Murray. However, Dalvin Cook is in line to return in 2018, so Murray will likely be no more than a handcuff.

  • Laquon Treadwell - WR
    Posted 1/21/18 8:29pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell failed to catch his only target in a 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Treadwell managed just 20 catches all season, and he is looking like a massive bust. At this point, the former first-round pick is even a sketchy stash option in dynasty formats.

  • Adam Thielen - WR
    Posted 1/19/18 9:28am ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (back) is taking part in practice Friday, Jan. 19.

    Huddle Up: Thielen will be a low-end WR1 or a high-end WR2 against the Philadelphia Eagles in playoff formats.

  • Adam Thielen - WR
    Posted 1/19/18 11:07am ET

    Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (back) was limited during practice Friday, Jan. 19, and is listed as questionable for the NFC Championship game.

    Huddle Up: Thielen appears to have a good chance to play against the Philadelphia Eagles, but owners will need to check the inactive list to make sure. He is a solid part of the Vikings passing game and would be at least a No. 2 fantasy option if he plays.

  • Adam Thielen - WR
    Posted 1/18/18 11:43am ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (back) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Jan. 18, after missing practice Wednesday, Jan. 17.

    Huddle Up: Thielen is an integral part of Minnesota's offense and should be able to take the field after being able to practice today. That is as long as he doesn't have any setbacks over the next couple days. Looking ahead to next season, Thielen has a WR1 ceiling again.

  • Adam Thielen - WR
    Posted 1/17/18 1:06pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (back) was absent from practice Wednesday, Jan. 17.

    Huddle Up: Thielen was recently on the injury report because of a knee injury, so the back ailment is a new development. He has extra motivation to play this week, though, with a berth to the Super Bowl on the line. After a monstrous breakout campaign, Thielen can be considered a WR1.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE
    Posted 1/14/18 5:53pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph posted five grabs for 28 yards on eight targets in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Rudolph was busy, but the frequent catches didn't amount to much in the way of yardage. Still, he might be the most reasonably priced DFS option at tight end heading into the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles next weekend.

  • Adam Thielen - WR
    Posted 1/14/18 5:52pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen secured six receptions for 74 yards on nine targets in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 14.

    Huddle Up: Thielen emerged as a dependable fantasy option across the board this season and he was a valuable option in his one, too. He'll continue to be a DFS favorite heading into the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles next Sunday.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR
    Posted 1/14/18 5:51pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs finished with six receptions for 137 yards in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 14, and his 61-yard game-winning touchdown with no time left will go down in NFL playoff history as one of the biggest.

    Huddle Up: Diggs and the Vikings were down 24-23 with a handful of ticks on the clock, but he went up for the ball, eluded a defender and shook loose down the sidelined while U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis was going bonkers. He'll look to carry over the momentum into the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles next Sunday.

  • Jerick McKinnon - RB
    Posted 1/14/18 5:51pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon ran eight times for 34 yards and a touchdown in the NFC Divisional Round playoff game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, Jan. 14, and he added three grabs for six yards.

    Huddle Up: McKinnon was outgained by Murray for 67 total yards to 40, while Murray had 21 total touches to 11 for McKinnon. Look for a similar touch distribution in the NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles next weekend. McKinnon is more of a RB3 or flex fantasy play in DFS for that one.
