Teddy Bridgewater

Minnesota Vikings

Surprising Return


Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater throwing the ball the same way after a long layoff? "I think better, honestly."

This injury was thought to be possibly career ending, I'm happy to see him make it back. It's going to take him a couple of games to get back to NFL game speed and he probably won't be using his legs a whole lot. Its possible Bridgewater is starting again in Week 11. I have him stashed in a couple of deep roster leagues, but I don't really see him making any impact on a contender.

Bridgewater Taking Snaps


It's still unclear whether Bridgewater will see any action in 2017, but the fact that he is back working with the organization is a great sign for 2018 and Bridgewater's health outside of football.

Fantasy Goo: Expect Bradford to get the starting spot for 2017, but hold on to Teddy in dynasty formats.

Teddy Bridgewater Out For The Season


Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has a complete tear of his ACL and will miss the entire 2016 season.

Fantasy Goo: It is a devastating loss, and one that significantly impacts the fantasy value of many of the Vikings offensive players. Adrian Peterson could quite possibly see even more carries, while Jerick McKinnon could see increased carries as well as more dump off passes. Stefon Diggs should see the same amount of targets and shouldn't have his value affected too much.

Laquon Treadwell

Minnesota Vikings

Skinny Post Treadwell


Rookie Laquon Treadwell seems an ideal fit for the game-altering pass play offensive coordinator Norv Turner is associated with. Michael Irvin sliced through NFL secondaries with his signature “Bang 8” route countless times during his Hall of Fame career. “Laquon’s more physically gifted than I was. And he looks to be a real competitor,” Irvin said.

Fantasy Goo: Michael Irvin is well respected for his knowledge of the wide receiver game and judging talent. At 6’2” and running a 4.52 forty Treadwell may remind us of Irvin as Michael did not beat defenses with speed but crafty push-offs which he perfected and the league later banned. Treadwell will need to learn to get open without Irvin’s signature straight-arm. You should never get too excited for rookie receivers for fantasy purposes. There are few Randy Moss monster seasons. The second thing to worry about is that Treadwell will have third year QB Teddy Bridgewater who is not a superstar fantasy QB. Bridgewater has thrown 14 touchdowns in each of his first two seasons.

Kyle Rudolph

Minnesota Vikings

Kyle Rudolph proclaimed himself the best tight end in the NFL


“Absolutely,” said Rudolph, entering his sixth season with the Vikings. “Route running and catching balls, to many, is all that matters. But it’s also (about) being one of the best blockers, one of the best pass protectors.”

Fantasy Goo: Back in the 1900’s players had respect for each other and would almost never claim to be the best unless they obviously were and even then would show class by not boasting. This century is full of Me-First attitudes. Praise should come from your peers and fans but, not yourself. Rob Gronkowski would be a coach’s choice far more often than Kyle Rudolph however; Kyle can tie his cleats tight this year and back up his ego on the field. Fantasy owners are likely to select many tight ends before Kyle is selected in 2016. Stefon Diggs, Laquon Treadwell, Charles Johnson and Jarius Wright will compete with Rudolph for Teddy Bridgewater's attention. Rudolph only caught 49 passes in 2015 but, has potential for 70 if Teddy progresses.

Charles Johnson

Minnesota Vikings

The wide receiver who popped


The wide receiver who popped out most during spring workouts was Charles Johnson, who got the bulk of the first-team reps at split end. In an 11-on-11 red-zone drill, Bridgewater lobbed a pretty pass to the back right corner of the end zone. Johnson made a leaping catch and tapped down two feet for the touchdown.

Fantasy Goo: Remain calm as there may be nothing to see here. 2015 was a disaster for fantasy owners who bought into his hype. Charles caught just 9 passes and had zero touchdowns in 2015. Teddy Bridgewater is not the type of quarterback that can satisfy all of the Vikings receiving targets. Stefon Diggs, Laquon Treadwell, Charles Johnson and tight end Kyle Rudolph comprise a group of mouths that all cannot be fed. Stefon Diggs should be the best bet of the bunch with Rudolph having a decent year for a tight end in 2016.

Teddy Bridgewater

Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings Look to Pillage


Teddy Bridgewater has worked on his lame duck balls during the offseason and Mike Zimmer is raving on his deep ball touch and accuracy. Some of Teddy's biggest knocks coming out of Louisville was his strength with the deep ball and padded stats through a lateral, intermediate passing offense.

Fantasy Goo: With the addition of LaQuon Treadwell and flashes of a young emerging star, Stefon Diggs, this passing offense could exhibit a bump in stats. The Vikings tend to feed Adrian Peterson the ball but with a fast, young defense they could take attempts down the field. The addition of Treadwell alone adds Red Zone targets. Treadwell has an innate ability to high point the ball, while Diggs has the ability to burn or run underneath routes to compliment Treadwell. Expect higher production than average from a developing QB, Teddy Bridgewater this year.

Teddy Bridgewater

Minnesota Vikings

Teddy Bridgewater to benefit from playing his home games indoors going forward.


Spielman said he’s “very excited” about what the team will see from Bridgewater in 2016. That will be his third year with the Vikings and Spielman said that he’s seen “significant jumps” from other quarterbacks when they reach that point in their careers. Spielman pointed to additions to the offensive coaching staff and the way the offense played in the final weeks of the regular season as reasons for the optimism.

“If you look at Teddy’s stats and how he performed when we were indoors –when we were in Detroit, even out at Arizona, some of those ideal conditions — we feel he’s going to even take another step forward,” Spielman said. “He still has to be able play outdoors. We still have to go to Chicago, we have to go to Green Bay every year.”

Teddy Bridgewater

Minnesota Vikings

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said new TEs coach Pat Shurmur and new OL coach Tony Sparano will bring "different ideas" to the offense.


The addition of former Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur to the Minnesota Vikings' offensive staff won't trigger major changes to the team's hierarchy for the 2016 season. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner will continue to call plays while Shurmur and offensive line coach Tony Sparano -- each former head coaches who worked as coordinators in 2015 -- will have the same responsibilities as any other position coach.--ESPN

"The No. 1 thing is, they're all good coaches," Zimmer said at the Senior Bowl on Wednesday. "They've all got great reputations. No. 2 is, when you're a head coach, you're never afraid to speak your mind. The possibility of all of them sitting in there, and the personalities of guys like Tony and Pat, they're not afraid to speak their minds on ideas. I just think the more good coaches you can get, the better it is."

Vikings want Teddy B to be more decisive


The Vikings are asking Teddy Bridgewater to be more decisive with the ball, to help cut down on the number of sacks they're allowing on Sundays. Bridgewater faces a Falcons team that's put less pressure on opposing QBs than all but one team in the NFL this season. But Atlanta hasn't given up many big plays, and the Falcons are ranked first in the league against the rush. Bridgewater has found most of his success on quick-hitting plays to receivers such as Stefon Diggs in recent weeks, and his ability to get Diggs involved on quick passes could be a key for the Vikings come Sunday. -- Ben Goessling

Great news for those looking to start him for a bye-week replacement. It will be good to see him back-at-it, as he looks to be an exciting rookie, and could be the quarterback the Vikings have looking for.

Teddy B Not Ready for PT


Being that it was a rain slicked ball-game to start, on top of an ankle injury, it was probably the right call to make for Zimmer. Bridgewater did state that if the game was on Sunday he would be ready to take the field. “It would have allowed me more days to rehab and treat the injury."

Teddy Bridgewater will be back-in-action next week, and if you are in need of a bye-week replacement, he could fit in nicely.

Minnesota Vikings

Bridgewater needs to cut down the turnovers


Teddy is showing the signs of being a rookie, but he needs to right the ship as soon as possible. The quarterback position is so demanding that many young signal callers crumble under the pressure. The fastest way out of the league is throwing interceptions. If he continues to turn the ball over Teddy will lose the trust of his teammates. He is young, and it is early, but I don't like what I have seen so far.

Teddy Bridgewater named as a back-up


This all makes sense until the Vikings are 0-4, and the fans want to see the rook come out and play. If Mike Zimmer can keep the Vikings competitive he will be able to maintain Bridgewater as a second fiddle, but the more they lose, the more pressure Zimmer will have to play Teddy Bridgewater.

This should not change much for your tiers and rankings. He is a late round selection at best, and is more fit for Dynasty or keeper leagues.

Teddy Bridgewater

Minnesota Vikings

Kyle Rudolph proclaimed himself the best tight end in the NFL


“Absolutely,” said Rudolph, entering his sixth season with the Vikings. “Route running and catching balls, to many, is all that matters. But it’s also (about) being one of the best blockers, one of the best pass protectors.”

Fantasy Goo: Back in the 1900’s players had respect for each other and would almost never claim to be the best unless they obviously were and even then would show class by not boasting. This century is full of Me-First attitudes. Praise should come from your peers and fans but, not yourself. Rob Gronkowski would be a coach’s choice far more often than Kyle Rudolph however; Kyle can tie his cleats tight this year and back up his ego on the field. Fantasy owners are likely to select many tight ends before Kyle is selected in 2016. Stefon Diggs, Laquon Treadwell, Charles Johnson and Jarius Wright will compete with Rudolph for Teddy Bridgewater's attention.

Charles Johnson

Minnesota Vikings

The wide receiver who popped


The wide receiver who popped out most during spring workouts was Charles Johnson, who got the bulk of the first-team reps at split end. In an 11-on-11 red-zone drill, Bridgewater lobbed a pretty pass to the back right corner of the end zone. Johnson made a leaping catch and tapped down two feet for the touchdown.

Fantasy Goo: Remain calm as there may be nothing to see here. 2015 was a disaster for fantasy owners who bought into his hype. Charles caught just 9 passes and had zero touchdowns in 2015. Teddy Bridgewater is not the type of quarterback that can satisfy all of the Vikings receiving targets. Stefon Diggs, Laquon Treadwell, Charles Johnson and tight end Kyle Rudolph comprise a group of mouths that all cannot be fed. Stefon Diggs should be the best bet of the bunch with Rudolph having a decent year for a tight end in 2016.

The Vikings Look to Pillage


Teddy Bridgewater has worked on his lame duck balls during the offseason and Mike Zimmer is raving on his deep ball touch and accuracy. Some of Teddy's biggest knocks coming out of Louisville was his strength with the deep ball and padded stats through a lateral, intermediate passing offense.

Fantasy Goo: With the addition of LaQuon Treadwell and flashes of a young emerging star, Stefon Diggs, this passing offense could exhibit a bump in stats. The Vikings tend to feed Adrian Peterson the ball but with a fast, young defense they could take attempts down the field. The addition of Treadwell alone adds Red Zone targets. Treadwell has an innate ability to high point the ball, while Diggs has the ability to burn or run underneath routes to compliment Treadwell. Expect higher production than average from a developing QB, Teddy Bridgewater this year.

Teddy Bridgewater to benefit from playing his home games indoors going forward.


Spielman said he’s “very excited” about what the team will see from Bridgewater in 2016. That will be his third year with the Vikings and Spielman said that he’s seen “significant jumps” from other quarterbacks when they reach that point in their careers. Spielman pointed to additions to the offensive coaching staff and the way the offense played in the final weeks of the regular season as reasons for the optimism.

“If you look at Teddy’s stats and how he performed when we were indoors –when we were in Detroit, even out at Arizona, some of those ideal conditions — we feel he’s going to even take another step forward,” Spielman said. “He still has to be able play outdoors. We still have to go to Chicago, we have to go to Green Bay every year.”

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said new TEs coach Pat Shurmur and new OL coach Tony Sparano will bring "different ideas" to the offense.


The addition of former Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur to the Minnesota Vikings' offensive staff won't trigger major changes to the team's hierarchy for the 2016 season. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner will continue to call plays while Shurmur and offensive line coach Tony Sparano -- each former head coaches who worked as coordinators in 2015 -- will have the same responsibilities as any other position coach.--ESPN

"The No. 1 thing is, they're all good coaches," Zimmer said at the Senior Bowl on Wednesday. "They've all got great reputations. No. 2 is, when you're a head coach, you're never afraid to speak your mind. The possibility of all of them sitting in there, and the personalities of guys like Tony and Pat, they're not afraid to speak their minds on ideas.

Vikings want Teddy B to be more decisive


The Vikings are asking Teddy Bridgewater to be more decisive with the ball, to help cut down on the number of sacks they're allowing on Sundays. Bridgewater faces a Falcons team that's put less pressure on opposing QBs than all but one team in the NFL this season. But Atlanta hasn't given up many big plays, and the Falcons are ranked first in the league against the rush. Bridgewater has found most of his success on quick-hitting plays to receivers such as Stefon Diggs in recent weeks, and his ability to get Diggs involved on quick passes could be a key for the Vikings come Sunday. -- Ben Goessling

Bridgewater needs to cut down the turnovers


Teddy is showing the signs of being a rookie, but he needs to right the ship as soon as possible. The quarterback position is so demanding that many young signal callers crumble under the pressure. The fastest way out of the league is throwing interceptions. If he continues to turn the ball over Teddy will lose the trust of his teammates. He is young, and it is early, but I don't like what I have seen so far.

This all makes sense until the Vikings are 0-4, and the fans want to see the rook come out and play. If Mike Zimmer can keep the Vikings competitive he will be able to maintain Bridgewater as a second fiddle, but the more they lose, the more pressure Zimmer will have to play Teddy Bridgewater.

This should not change much for your tiers and rankings. He is a late round selection at best, and is more fit for Dynasty or keeper leagues.

Skinny Post Treadwell


Rookie Laquon Treadwell seems an ideal fit for the game-altering pass play offensive coordinator Norv Turner is associated with. Michael Irvin sliced through NFL secondaries with his signature “Bang 8” route countless times during his Hall of Fame career. “Laquon’s more physically gifted than I was. And he looks to be a real competitor,” Irvin said.

Fantasy Goo: Michael Irvin is well respected for his knowledge of the wide receiver game and judging talent. At 6’2” and running a 4.52 forty Treadwell may remind us of Irvin as Michael did not beat defenses with speed but crafty push-offs which he perfected and the league later banned. Treadwell will need to learn to get open without Irvin’s signature straight-arm. You should never get too excited for rookie receivers for fantasy purposes. There are few Randy Moss monster seasons. The second thing to worry about is that Treadwell will have third year QB Teddy Bridgewater who is not a superstar fantasy QB. Bridgewater has thrown 14 touchdowns in each of his first two seasons.

Kyle Rudolph proclaimed himself the best tight end in the NFL


“Absolutely,” said Rudolph, entering his sixth season with the Vikings. “Route running and catching balls, to many, is all that matters. But it’s also (about) being one of the best blockers, one of the best pass protectors.”

Fantasy Goo: Back in the 1900’s players had respect for each other and would almost never claim to be the best unless they obviously were and even then would show class by not boasting. This century is full of Me-First attitudes. Praise should come from your peers and fans but, not yourself. Rob Gronkowski would be a coach’s choice far more often than Kyle Rudolph however; Kyle can tie his cleats tight this year and back up his ego on the field. Fantasy owners are likely to select many tight ends before Kyle is selected in 2016. Stefon Diggs, Laquon Treadwell, Charles Johnson and Jarius Wright will compete with Rudolph for Teddy Bridgewater's attention. Rudolph only caught 49 passes in 2015 but, has potential for 70 if Teddy progresses.

Teddy Bridgewater is not the type of quarterback that can satisfy all of the Vikings receiving targets.

The Vikings Look to Pillage


Teddy Bridgewater has worked on his lame duck balls during the offseason and Mike Zimmer is raving on his deep ball touch and accuracy. Some of Teddy's biggest knocks coming out of Louisville was his strength with the deep ball and padded stats through a lateral, intermediate passing offense.

Fantasy Goo: With the addition of LaQuon Treadwell and flashes of a young emerging star, Stefon Diggs, this passing offense could exhibit a bump in stats. The Vikings tend to feed Adrian Peterson the ball but with a fast, young defense they could take attempts down the field. The addition of Treadwell alone adds Red Zone targets. Treadwell has an innate ability to high point the ball, while Diggs has the ability to burn or run underneath routes to compliment Treadwell. Expect higher production than average from a developing QB, Teddy Bridgewater this year.

Teddy Bridgewater to benefit from playing his home games indoors going forward.


Spielman said he’s “very excited” about what the team will see from Bridgewater in 2016. That will be his third year with the Vikings and Spielman said that he’s seen “significant jumps” from other quarterbacks when they reach that point in their careers. Spielman pointed to additions to the offensive coaching staff and the way the offense played in the final weeks of the regular season as reasons for the optimism.

“If you look at Teddy’s stats and how he performed when we were indoors –when we were in Detroit, even out at Arizona, some of those ideal conditions — we feel he’s going to even take another step forward,” Spielman said. “He still has to be able play outdoors. We still have to go to Chicago, we have to go to Green Bay every year.”

Minnesota Vikings

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said new TEs coach Pat Shurmur and new OL coach Tony Sparano will bring "different ideas" to the offense.


The addition of former Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur to the Minnesota Vikings' offensive staff won't trigger major changes to the team's hierarchy for the 2016 season. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner will continue to call plays while Shurmur and offensive line coach Tony Sparano -- each former head coaches who worked as coordinators in 2015 -- will have the same responsibilities as any other position coach.--ESPN

"The No. 1 thing is, they're all good coaches," Zimmer said at the Senior Bowl on Wednesday. "They've all got great reputations. No. 2 is, when you're a head coach, you're never afraid to speak your mind. The possibility of all of them sitting in there, and the personalities of guys like Tony and Pat, they're not afraid to speak their minds on ideas.

Vikings want Teddy B to be more decisive


The Vikings are asking Teddy Bridgewater to be more decisive with the ball, to help cut down on the number of sacks they're allowing on Sundays. Bridgewater faces a Falcons team that's put less pressure on opposing QBs than all but one team in the NFL this season. But Atlanta hasn't given up many big plays, and the Falcons are ranked first in the league against the rush. Bridgewater has found most of his success on quick-hitting plays to receivers such as Stefon Diggs in recent weeks, and his ability to get Diggs involved on quick passes could be a key for the Vikings come Sunday. -- Ben Goessling

Bridgewater needs to cut down the turnovers


Teddy is showing the signs of being a rookie, but he needs to right the ship as soon as possible. The quarterback position is so demanding that many young signal callers crumble under the pressure. The fastest way out of the league is throwing interceptions. If he continues to turn the ball over Teddy will lose the trust of his teammates. He is young, and it is early, but I don't like what I have seen so far.

This all makes sense until the Vikings are 0-4, and the fans want to see the rook come out and play. If Mike Zimmer can keep the Vikings competitive he will be able to maintain Bridgewater as a second fiddle, but the more they lose, the more pressure Zimmer will have to play Teddy Bridgewater.

This should not change much for your tiers and rankings. He is a late round selection at best, and is more fit for Dynasty or keeper leagues.

This injury was thought to be possibly career ending, I'm happy to see him make it back. It's going to take him a couple of games to get back to NFL game speed and he probably won't be using his legs a whole lot. Its possible Bridgewater is starting again in Week 11. I have him stashed in a couple of deep roster leagues, but I don't really see him making any impact on a contender.

Adrian Peterson could quite possibly see even more carries, while Jerick McKinnon could see increased carries as well as more dump off passes. Stefon Diggs should see the same amount of targets and shouldn't have his value affected too much.

I have him stashed in a couple of deep roster leagues, but I don't really see him making any impact on a contender.

It's still unclear whether Bridgewater will see any action in 2017, but the fact that he is back working with the organization is a great sign for 2018 and Bridgewater's health outside of football.

Fantasy Goo: Expect Bradford to get the starting spot for 2017, but hold on to Teddy in dynasty formats.

Teddy Bridgewater Out For The Season


Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has a complete tear of his ACL and will miss the entire 2016 season.

Fantasy Goo: It is a devastating loss, and one that significantly impacts the fantasy value of many of the Vikings offensive players. Adrian Peterson could quite possibly see even more carries, while Jerick McKinnon could see increased carries as well as more dump off passes. Stefon Diggs should see the same amount of targets and shouldn't have his value affected too much.

Laquon Treadwell

Minnesota Vikings

Skinny Post Treadwell


Rookie Laquon Treadwell seems an ideal fit for the game-altering pass play offensive coordinator Norv Turner is associated with. Michael Irvin sliced through NFL secondaries with his signature “Bang 8” route countless times during his Hall of Fame career. “Laquon’s more physically gifted than I was. And he looks to be a real competitor,” Irvin said.

Fantasy Goo: Michael Irvin is well respected for his knowledge of the wide receiver game and judging talent. At 6’2” and running a 4.52 forty Treadwell may remind us of Irvin as Michael did not beat defenses with speed but crafty push-offs which he perfected and the league later banned. Treadwell will need to learn to get open without Irvin’s signature straight-arm. You should never get too excited for rookie receivers for fantasy purposes. There are few Randy Moss monster seasons. The second thing to worry about is that Treadwell will have third year QB Teddy Bridgewater who is not a superstar fantasy QB. Bridgewater has thrown 14 touchdowns in each of his first two seasons.

The Vikings Look to Pillage


Teddy Bridgewater has worked on his lame duck balls during the offseason and Mike Zimmer is raving on his deep ball touch and accuracy. Some of Teddy's biggest knocks coming out of Louisville was his strength with the deep ball and padded stats through a lateral, intermediate passing offense.

Fantasy Goo: With the addition of LaQuon Treadwell and flashes of a young emerging star, Stefon Diggs, this passing offense could exhibit a bump in stats. The Vikings tend to feed Adrian Peterson the ball but with a fast, young defense they could take attempts down the field. The addition of Treadwell alone adds Red Zone targets. Treadwell has an innate ability to high point the ball, while Diggs has the ability to burn or run underneath routes to compliment Treadwell.

Spielman pointed to additions to the offensive coaching staff and the way the offense played in the final weeks of the regular season as reasons for the optimism.

“If you look at Teddy’s stats and how he performed when we were indoors –when we were in Detroit, even out at Arizona, some of those ideal conditions — we feel he’s going to even take another step forward,” Spielman said. “He still has to be able play outdoors. We still have to go to Chicago, we have to go to Green Bay every year.”

Vikings want Teddy B to be more decisive


The Vikings are asking Teddy Bridgewater to be more decisive with the ball, to help cut down on the number of sacks they're allowing on Sundays. Bridgewater faces a Falcons team that's put less pressure on opposing QBs than all but one team in the NFL this season. But Atlanta hasn't given up many big plays, and the Falcons are ranked first in the league against the rush. Bridgewater has found most of his success on quick-hitting plays to receivers such as Stefon Diggs in recent weeks, and his ability to get Diggs involved on quick passes could be a key for the Vikings come Sunday. -- Ben Goessling

Bridgewater needs to cut down the turnovers


Teddy is showing the signs of being a rookie, but he needs to right the ship as soon as possible. The quarterback position is so demanding that many young signal callers crumble under the pressure. The fastest way out of the league is throwing interceptions. If he continues to turn the ball over Teddy will lose the trust of his teammates. He is young, and it is early, but I don't like what I have seen so far.

This all makes sense until the Vikings are 0-4, and the fans want to see the rook come out and play. If Mike Zimmer can keep the Vikings competitive he will be able to maintain Bridgewater as a second fiddle, but the more they lose, the more pressure Zimmer will have to play Teddy Bridgewater.

This should not change much for your tiers and rankings. He is a late round selection at best, and is more fit for Dynasty or keeper leagues.

Bridgewater has found most of his success on quick-hitting plays to receivers such as Stefon Diggs in recent weeks, and his ability to get Diggs involved on quick passes could be a key for the Vikings come Sunday. -- Ben Goessling

Teddy B Not Ready for PT


Being that it was a rain slicked ball-game to start, on top of an ankle injury, it was probably the right call to make for Zimmer. Bridgewater did state that if the game was on Sunday he would be ready to take the field. “It would have allowed me more days to rehab and treat the injury."

Teddy Bridgewater will be back-in-action next week, and if you are in need of a bye-week replacement, he could fit in nicely.

Bridgewater needs to cut down the turnovers


Teddy is showing the signs of being a rookie, but he needs to right the ship as soon as possible. The quarterback position is so demanding that many young signal callers crumble under the pressure. The fastest way out of the league is throwing interceptions. If he continues to turn the ball over Teddy will lose the trust of his teammates. He is young, and it is early, but I don't like what I have seen so far.

This all makes sense until the Vikings are 0-4, and the fans want to see the rook come out and play. If Mike Zimmer can keep the Vikings competitive he will be able to maintain Bridgewater as a second fiddle, but the more they lose, the more pressure Zimmer will have to play Teddy Bridgewater.

This should not change much for your tiers and rankings. He is a late round selection at best, and is more fit for Dynasty or keeper leagues.

Surprising Return


Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater throwing the ball the same way after a long layoff? "I think better, honestly."

This injury was thought to be possibly career ending, I'm happy to see him make it back. It's going to take him a couple of games to get back to NFL game speed and he probably won't be using his legs a whole lot. Its possible Bridgewater is starting again in Week 11. I have him stashed in a couple of deep roster leagues, but I don't really see him making any impact on a contender.

Adrian Peterson could quite possibly see even more carries, while Jerick McKinnon could see increased carries as well as more dump off passes. Stefon Diggs should see the same amount of targets and shouldn't have his value affected too much.

Skinny Post Treadwell


Rookie Laquon Treadwell seems an ideal fit for the game-altering pass play offensive coordinator Norv Turner is associated with. Michael Irvin sliced through NFL secondaries with his signature “Bang 8” route countless times during his Hall of Fame career. “Laquon’s more physically gifted than I was. And he looks to be a real competitor,” Irvin said.

Fantasy Goo: Michael Irvin is well respected for his knowledge of the wide receiver game and judging talent. At 6’2” and running a 4.52 forty Treadwell may remind us of Irvin as Michael did not beat defenses with speed but crafty push-offs which he perfected and the league later banned. Treadwell will need to learn to get open without Irvin’s signature straight-arm. You should never get too excited for rookie receivers for fantasy purposes. There are few Randy Moss monster seasons. The second thing to worry about is that Treadwell will have third year QB Teddy Bridgewater who is not a superstar fantasy QB. Bridgewater has thrown 14 touchdowns in each of his first two seasons.

Rudolph only caught 49 passes in 2015 but, has potential for 70 if Teddy progresses.

The Vikings Look to Pillage


Teddy Bridgewater has worked on his lame duck balls during the offseason and Mike Zimmer is raving on his deep ball touch and accuracy. Some of Teddy's biggest knocks coming out of Louisville was his strength with the deep ball and padded stats through a lateral, intermediate passing offense.

Fantasy Goo: With the addition of LaQuon Treadwell and flashes of a young emerging star, Stefon Diggs, this passing offense could exhibit a bump in stats. The Vikings tend to feed Adrian Peterson the ball but with a fast, young defense they could take attempts down the field. The addition of Treadwell alone adds Red Zone targets. Treadwell has an innate ability to high point the ball, while Diggs has the ability to burn or run underneath routes to compliment Treadwell. Expect higher production than average from a developing QB, Teddy Bridgewater this year.

Teddy Bridgewater to benefit from playing his home games indoors going forward.


Spielman said he’s “very excited” about what the team will see from Bridgewater in 2016. That will be his third year with the Vikings and Spielman said that he’s seen “significant jumps” from other quarterbacks when they reach that point in their careers. Spielman pointed to additions to the offensive coaching staff and the way the offense played in the final weeks of the regular season as reasons for the optimism.

“If you look at Teddy’s stats and how he performed when we were indoors –when we were in Detroit, even out at Arizona, some of those ideal conditions — we feel he’s going to even take another step forward,” Spielman said. “He still has to be able play outdoors. We still have to go to Chicago, we have to go to Green Bay every year.”

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said new TEs coach Pat Shurmur and new OL coach Tony Sparano will bring "different ideas" to the offense.


The addition of former Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur to the Minnesota Vikings' offensive staff won't trigger major changes to the team's hierarchy for the 2016 season. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner will continue to call plays while Shurmur and offensive line coach Tony Sparano -- each former head coaches who worked as coordinators in 2015 -- will have the same responsibilities as any other position coach.--ESPN

"The No. 1 thing is, they're all good coaches," Zimmer said at the Senior Bowl on Wednesday. "They've all got great reputations. No. 2 is, when you're a head coach, you're never afraid to speak your mind. The possibility of all of them sitting in there, and the personalities of guys like Tony and Pat, they're not afraid to speak their minds on ideas. I just think the more good coaches you can get, the better it is."

Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings Look to Pillage


Teddy Bridgewater has worked on his lame duck balls during the offseason and Mike Zimmer is raving on his deep ball touch and accuracy. Some of Teddy's biggest knocks coming out of Louisville was his strength with the deep ball and padded stats through a lateral, intermediate passing offense.

Fantasy Goo: With the addition of LaQuon Treadwell and flashes of a young emerging star, Stefon Diggs, this passing offense could exhibit a bump in stats. The Vikings tend to feed Adrian Peterson the ball but with a fast, young defense they could take attempts down the field. The addition of Treadwell alone adds Red Zone targets. Treadwell has an innate ability to high point the ball, while Diggs has the ability to burn or run underneath routes to compliment Treadwell. Expect higher production than average from a developing QB, Teddy Bridgewater this year.

Teddy Bridgewater to benefit from playing his home games indoors going forward.


Spielman said he’s “very excited” about what the team will see from Bridgewater in 2016. That will be his third year with the Vikings and Spielman said that he’s seen “significant jumps” from other quarterbacks when they reach that point in their careers. Spielman pointed to additions to the offensive coaching staff and the way the offense played in the final weeks of the regular season as reasons for the optimism.

“If you look at Teddy’s stats and how he performed when we were indoors –when we were in Detroit, even out at Arizona, some of those ideal conditions — we feel he’s going to even take another step forward,” Spielman said. “He still has to be able play outdoors. We still have to go to Chicago, we have to go to Green Bay every year.”

Minnesota Vikings

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said new TEs coach Pat Shurmur and new OL coach Tony Sparano will bring "different ideas" to the offense.


The addition of former Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur to the Minnesota Vikings' offensive staff won't trigger major changes to the team's hierarchy for the 2016 season. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner will continue to call plays while Shurmur and offensive line coach Tony Sparano -- each former head coaches who worked as coordinators in 2015 -- will have the same responsibilities as any other position coach.--ESPN

"The No. 1 thing is, they're all good coaches," Zimmer said at the Senior Bowl on Wednesday. "They've all got great reputations. No. 2 is, when you're a head coach, you're never afraid to speak your mind. The possibility of all of them sitting in there, and the personalities of guys like Tony and Pat, they're not afraid to speak their minds on ideas. I just think the more good coaches you can get, the better it is."

Vikings want Teddy B to be more decisive


The Vikings are asking Teddy Bridgewater to be more decisive with the ball, to help cut down on the number of sacks they're allowing on Sundays. Bridgewater faces a Falcons team that's put less pressure on opposing QBs than all but one team in the NFL this season. But Atlanta hasn't given up many big plays, and the Falcons are ranked first in the league against the rush. Bridgewater has found most of his success on quick-hitting plays to receivers such as Stefon Diggs in recent weeks, and his ability to get Diggs involved on quick passes could be a key for the Vikings come Sunday. -- Ben Goessling

Teddy Bridgewater will be back-in-action next week, and if you are in need of a bye-week replacement, he could fit in nicely.

Bridgewater needs to cut down the turnovers


Teddy is showing the signs of being a rookie, but he needs to right the ship as soon as possible. The quarterback position is so demanding that many young signal callers crumble under the pressure. The fastest way out of the league is throwing interceptions. If he continues to turn the ball over Teddy will lose the trust of his teammates. He is young, and it is early, but I don't like what I have seen so far.

This all makes sense until the Vikings are 0-4, and the fans want to see the rook come out and play. If Mike Zimmer can keep the Vikings competitive he will be able to maintain Bridgewater as a second fiddle, but the more they lose, the more pressure Zimmer will have to play Teddy Bridgewater.

This should not change much for your tiers and rankings. He is a late round selection at best, and is more fit for Dynasty or keeper leagues.

This injury was thought to be possibly career ending, I'm happy to see him make it back. It's going to take him a couple of games to get back to NFL game speed and he probably won't be using his legs a whole lot. Its possible Bridgewater is starting again in Week 11.

Skinny Post Treadwell


Rookie Laquon Treadwell seems an ideal fit for the game-altering pass play offensive coordinator Norv Turner is associated with. Michael Irvin sliced through NFL secondaries with his signature “Bang 8” route countless times during his Hall of Fame career. “Laquon’s more physically gifted than I was. And he looks to be a real competitor,” Irvin said.

Fantasy Goo: Michael Irvin is well respected for his knowledge of the wide receiver game and judging talent. At 6’2” and running a 4.52 forty Treadwell may remind us of Irvin as Michael did not beat defenses with speed but crafty push-offs which he perfected and the league later banned. Treadwell will need to learn to get open without Irvin’s signature straight-arm. You should never get too excited for rookie receivers for fantasy purposes. There are few Randy Moss monster seasons. The second thing to worry about is that Treadwell will have third year QB Teddy Bridgewater who is not a superstar fantasy QB. Bridgewater has thrown 14 touchdowns in each of his first two seasons.

Stefon Diggs, Laquon Treadwell, Charles Johnson and Jarius Wright will compete with Rudolph for Teddy Bridgewater's attention. Rudolph only caught 49 passes in 2015 but, has potential for 70 if Teddy progresses.

Fantasy owners are likely to select many tight ends before Kyle is selected in 2016. Stefon Diggs, Laquon Treadwell, Charles Johnson and Jarius Wright will compete with Rudolph for Teddy Bridgewater's attention. Rudolph only caught 49 passes in 2015 but, has potential for 70 if Teddy progresses.

Minnesota Vikings

Kyle Rudolph proclaimed himself the best tight end in the NFL


“Absolutely,” said Rudolph, entering his sixth season with the Vikings. “Route running and catching balls, to many, is all that matters. But it’s also (about) being one of the best blockers, one of the best pass protectors.”

Fantasy Goo: Back in the 1900’s players had respect for each other and would almost never claim to be the best unless they obviously were and even then would show class by not boasting.

Charles Johnson

Minnesota Vikings

The wide receiver who popped


The wide receiver who popped out most during spring workouts was Charles Johnson, who got the bulk of the first-team reps at split end. In an 11-on-11 red-zone drill, Bridgewater lobbed a pretty pass to the back right corner of the end zone. Johnson made a leaping catch and tapped down two feet for the touchdown.

Fantasy Goo: Remain calm as there may be nothing to see here. 2015 was a disaster for fantasy owners who bought into his hype. Charles caught just 9 passes and had zero touchdowns in 2015. Teddy Bridgewater is not the type of quarterback that can satisfy all of the Vikings receiving targets. Stefon Diggs, Laquon Treadwell, Charles Johnson and tight end Kyle Rudolph comprise a group of mouths that all cannot be fed. Stefon Diggs should be the best bet of the bunch with Rudolph having a decent year for a tight end in 2016.

The Vikings Look to Pillage


Teddy Bridgewater has worked on his lame duck balls during the offseason and Mike Zimmer is raving on his deep ball touch and accuracy. Some of Teddy's biggest knocks coming out of Louisville was his strength with the deep ball and padded stats through a lateral, intermediate passing offense.

Fantasy Goo: With the addition of LaQuon Treadwell and flashes of a young emerging star, Stefon Diggs, this passing offense could exhibit a bump in stats. The Vikings tend to feed Adrian Peterson the ball but with a fast, young defense they could take attempts down the field. The addition of Treadwell alone adds Red Zone targets. Treadwell has an innate ability to high point the ball, while Diggs has the ability to burn or run underneath routes to compliment Treadwell. Expect higher production than average from a developing QB, Teddy Bridgewater this year.

Teddy Bridgewater to benefit from playing his home games indoors going forward.


Spielman said he’s “very excited” about what the team will see from Bridgewater in 2016. That will be his third year with the Vikings and Spielman said that he’s seen “significant jumps” from other quarterbacks when they reach that point in their careers. Spielman pointed to additions to the offensive coaching staff and the way the offense played in the final weeks of the regular season as reasons for the optimism.

“If you look at Teddy’s stats and how he performed when we were indoors –when we were in Detroit, even out at Arizona, some of those ideal conditions — we feel he’s going to even take another step forward,” Spielman said. “He still has to be able play outdoors. We still have to go to Chicago, we have to go to Green Bay every year.”

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said new TEs coach Pat Shurmur and new OL coach Tony Sparano will bring "different ideas" to the offense.


The addition of former Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur to the Minnesota Vikings' offensive staff won't trigger major changes to the team's hierarchy for the 2016 season. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner will continue to call plays while Shurmur and offensive line coach Tony Sparano -- each former head coaches who worked as coordinators in 2015 -- will have the same responsibilities as any other position coach.--ESPN

"The No. 1 thing is, they're all good coaches," Zimmer said at the Senior Bowl on Wednesday. "They've all got great reputations. No. 2 is, when you're a head coach, you're never afraid to speak your mind. The possibility of all of them sitting in there, and the personalities of guys like Tony and Pat, they're not afraid to speak their minds on ideas.

Vikings want Teddy B to be more decisive


The Vikings are asking Teddy Bridgewater to be more decisive with the ball, to help cut down on the number of sacks they're allowing on Sundays. Bridgewater faces a Falcons team that's put less pressure on opposing QBs than all but one team in the NFL this season. But Atlanta hasn't given up many big plays, and the Falcons are ranked first in the league against the rush. Bridgewater has found most of his success on quick-hitting plays to receivers such as Stefon Diggs in recent weeks, and his ability to get Diggs involved on quick passes could be a key for the Vikings come Sunday. -- Ben Goessling

Bridgewater needs to cut down the turnovers


Teddy is showing the signs of being a rookie, but he needs to right the ship as soon as possible. The quarterback position is so demanding that many young signal callers crumble under the pressure. The fastest way out of the league is throwing interceptions. If he continues to turn the ball over Teddy will lose the trust of his teammates. He is young, and it is early, but I don't like what I have seen so far.

This all makes sense until the Vikings are 0-4, and the fans want to see the rook come out and play. If Mike Zimmer can keep the Vikings competitive he will be able to maintain Bridgewater as a second fiddle, but the more they lose, the more pressure Zimmer will have to play Teddy Bridgewater.

This should not change much for your tiers and rankings. He is a late round selection at best, and is more fit for Dynasty or keeper leagues.

Skinny Post Treadwell


Rookie Laquon Treadwell seems an ideal fit for the game-altering pass play offensive coordinator Norv Turner is associated with. Michael Irvin sliced through NFL secondaries with his signature “Bang 8” route countless times during his Hall of Fame career. “Laquon’s more physically gifted than I was. And he looks to be a real competitor,” Irvin said.

Fantasy Goo: Michael Irvin is well respected for his knowledge of the wide receiver game and judging talent. At 6’2” and running a 4.52 forty Treadwell may remind us of Irvin as Michael did not beat defenses with speed but crafty push-offs which he perfected and the league later banned. Treadwell will need to learn to get open without Irvin’s signature straight-arm. You should never get too excited for rookie receivers for fantasy purposes. There are few Randy Moss monster seasons. The second thing to worry about is that Treadwell will have third year QB Teddy Bridgewater who is not a superstar fantasy QB. Bridgewater has thrown 14 touchdowns in each of his first two seasons.

Kyle Rudolph proclaimed himself the best tight end in the NFL


“Absolutely,” said Rudolph, entering his sixth season with the Vikings. “Route running and catching balls, to many, is all that matters. But it’s also (about) being one of the best blockers, one of the best pass protectors.”

Fantasy Goo: Back in the 1900’s players had respect for each other and would almost never claim to be the best unless they obviously were and even then would show class by not boasting. This century is full of Me-First attitudes. Praise should come from your peers and fans but, not yourself. Rob Gronkowski would be a coach’s choice far more often than Kyle Rudolph however; Kyle can tie his cleats tight this year and back up his ego on the field. Fantasy owners are likely to select many tight ends before Kyle is selected in 2016. Stefon Diggs, Laquon Treadwell, Charles Johnson and Jarius Wright will compete with Rudolph for Teddy Bridgewater's attention. Rudolph only caught 49 passes in 2015 but, has potential for 70 if Teddy progresses.

The Vikings Look to Pillage


Teddy Bridgewater has worked on his lame duck balls during the offseason and Mike Zimmer is raving on his deep ball touch and accuracy. Some of Teddy's biggest knocks coming out of Louisville was his strength with the deep ball and padded stats through a lateral, intermediate passing offense.

Fantasy Goo: With the addition of LaQuon Treadwell and flashes of a young emerging star, Stefon Diggs, this passing offense could exhibit a bump in stats. The Vikings tend to feed Adrian Peterson the ball but with a fast, young defense they could take attempts down the field. The addition of Treadwell alone adds Red Zone targets. Treadwell has an innate ability to high point the ball, while Diggs has the ability to burn or run underneath routes to compliment Treadwell. Expect higher production than average from a developing QB, Teddy Bridgewater this year.

Spielman said he’s “very excited” about what the team will see from Bridgewater in 2016. That will be his third year with the Vikings and Spielman said that he’s seen “significant jumps” from other quarterbacks when they reach that point in their careers. Spielman pointed to additions to the offensive coaching staff and the way the offense played in the final weeks of the regular season as reasons for the optimism.

“If you look at Teddy’s stats and how he performed when we were indoors –when we were in Detroit, even out at Arizona, some of those ideal conditions — we feel he’s going to even take another step forward,” Spielman said. “He still has to be able play outdoors. We still have to go to Chicago, we have to go to Green Bay every year.”

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said new TEs coach Pat Shurmur and new OL coach Tony Sparano will bring "different ideas" to the offense.


The addition of former Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur to the Minnesota Vikings' offensive staff won't trigger major changes to the team's hierarchy for the 2016 season. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner will continue to call plays while Shurmur and offensive line coach Tony Sparano -- each former head coaches who worked as coordinators in 2015 -- will have the same responsibilities as any other position coach.--ESPN

"The No. 1 thing is, they're all good coaches," Zimmer said at the Senior Bowl on Wednesday. "They've all got great reputations. No. 2 is, when you're a head coach, you're never afraid to speak your mind. The possibility of all of them sitting in there, and the personalities of guys like Tony and Pat, they're not afraid to speak their minds on ideas.

Vikings want Teddy B to be more decisive


The Vikings are asking Teddy Bridgewater to be more decisive with the ball, to help cut down on the number of sacks they're allowing on Sundays. Bridgewater faces a Falcons team that's put less pressure on opposing QBs than all but one team in the NFL this season. But Atlanta hasn't given up many big plays, and the Falcons are ranked first in the league against the rush. Bridgewater has found most of his success on quick-hitting plays to receivers such as Stefon Diggs in recent weeks, and his ability to get Diggs involved on quick passes could be a key for the Vikings come Sunday. -- Ben Goessling

Bridgewater needs to cut down the turnovers


Teddy is showing the signs of being a rookie, but he needs to right the ship as soon as possible. The quarterback position is so demanding that many young signal callers crumble under the pressure. The fastest way out of the league is throwing interceptions. If he continues to turn the ball over Teddy will lose the trust of his teammates. He is young, and it is early, but I don't like what I have seen so far.

This all makes sense until the Vikings are 0-4, and the fans want to see the rook come out and play. If Mike Zimmer can keep the Vikings competitive he will be able to maintain Bridgewater as a second fiddle, but the more they lose, the more pressure Zimmer will have to play Teddy Bridgewater.

This should not change much for your tiers and rankings. He is a late round selection at best, and is more fit for Dynasty or keeper leagues.

This injury was thought to be possibly career ending, I'm happy to see him make it back. It's going to take him a couple of games to get back to NFL game speed and he probably won't be using his legs a whole lot. Its possible Bridgewater is starting again in Week 11. I have him stashed in a couple of deep roster leagues, but I don't really see him making any impact on a contender.

Adrian Peterson could quite possibly see even more carries, while Jerick McKinnon could see increased carries as well as more dump off passes. Stefon Diggs should see the same amount of targets and shouldn't have his value affected too much.

I have him stashed in a couple of deep roster leagues, but I don't really see him making any impact on a contender.

It's still unclear whether Bridgewater will see any action in 2017, but the fact that he is back working with the organization is a great sign for 2018 and Bridgewater's health outside of football.

Fantasy Goo: Expect Bradford to get the starting spot for 2017, but hold on to Teddy in dynasty formats.

Teddy Bridgewater Out For The Season


Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has a complete tear of his ACL and will miss the entire 2016 season.

Fantasy Goo: It is a devastating loss, and one that significantly impacts the fantasy value of many of the Vikings offensive players. Adrian Peterson could quite possibly see even more carries, while Jerick McKinnon could see increased carries as well as more dump off passes. Stefon Diggs should see the same amount of targets and shouldn't have his value affected too much.

Laquon Treadwell

Minnesota Vikings

Skinny Post Treadwell


Rookie Laquon Treadwell seems an ideal fit for the game-altering pass play offensive coordinator Norv Turner is associated with. Michael Irvin sliced through NFL secondaries with his signature “Bang 8” route countless times during his Hall of Fame career. “Laquon’s more physically gifted than I was. And he looks to be a real competitor,” Irvin said.

Fantasy Goo: Michael Irvin is well respected for his knowledge of the wide receiver game and judging talent. At 6’2” and running a 4.52 forty Treadwell may remind us of Irvin as Michael did not beat defenses with speed but crafty push-offs which he perfected and the league later banned. Treadwell will need to learn to get open without Irvin’s signature straight-arm. You should never get too excited for rookie receivers for fantasy purposes. There are few Randy Moss monster seasons. The second thing to worry about is that Treadwell will have third year QB Teddy Bridgewater who is not a superstar fantasy QB. Bridgewater has thrown 14 touchdowns in each of his first two seasons.

The Vikings Look to Pillage


Teddy Bridgewater has worked on his lame duck balls during the offseason and Mike Zimmer is raving on his deep ball touch and accuracy. Some of Teddy's biggest knocks coming out of Louisville was his strength with the deep ball and padded stats through a lateral, intermediate passing offense.

Fantasy Goo: With the addition of LaQuon Treadwell and flashes of a young emerging star, Stefon Diggs, this passing offense could exhibit a bump in stats. The Vikings tend to feed Adrian Peterson the ball but with a fast, young defense they could take attempts down the field. The addition of Treadwell alone adds Red Zone targets. Treadwell has an innate ability to high point the ball, while Diggs has the ability to burn or run underneath routes to compliment Treadwell.

Spielman pointed to additions to the offensive coaching staff and the way the offense played in the final weeks of the regular season as reasons for the optimism.

“If you look at Teddy’s stats and how he performed when we were indoors –when we were in Detroit, even out at Arizona, some of those ideal conditions — we feel he’s going to even take another step forward,” Spielman said. “He still has to be able play outdoors. We still have to go to Chicago, we have to go to Green Bay every year.”

Vikings want Teddy B to be more decisive


The Vikings are asking Teddy Bridgewater to be more decisive with the ball, to help cut down on the number of sacks they're allowing on Sundays. Bridgewater faces a Falcons team that's put less pressure on opposing QBs than all but one team in the NFL this season. But Atlanta hasn't given up many big plays, and the Falcons are ranked first in the league against the rush. Bridgewater has found most of his success on quick-hitting plays to receivers such as Stefon Diggs in recent weeks, and his ability to get Diggs involved on quick passes could be a key for the Vikings come Sunday. -- Ben Goessling

Bridgewater needs to cut down the turnovers


Teddy is showing the signs of being a rookie, but he needs to right the ship as soon as possible. The quarterback position is so demanding that many young signal callers crumble under the pressure. The fastest way out of the league is throwing interceptions. If he continues to turn the ball over Teddy will lose the trust of his teammates. He is young, and it is early, but I don't like what I have seen so far.

This all makes sense until the Vikings are 0-4, and the fans want to see the rook come out and play. If Mike Zimmer can keep the Vikings competitive he will be able to maintain Bridgewater as a second fiddle, but the more they lose, the more pressure Zimmer will have to play Teddy Bridgewater.

This should not change much for your tiers and rankings. He is a late round selection at best, and is more fit for Dynasty or keeper leagues.

Bridgewater has found most of his success on quick-hitting plays to receivers such as Stefon Diggs in recent weeks, and his ability to get Diggs involved on quick passes could be a key for the Vikings come Sunday. -- Ben Goessling

Teddy B Not Ready for PT


Being that it was a rain slicked ball-game to start, on top of an ankle injury, it was probably the right call to make for Zimmer. Bridgewater did state that if the game was on Sunday he would be ready to take the field. “It would have allowed me more days to rehab and treat the injury."

Teddy Bridgewater will be back-in-action next week, and if you are in need of a bye-week replacement, he could fit in nicely.

Bridgewater needs to cut down the turnovers


Teddy is showing the signs of being a rookie, but he needs to right the ship as soon as possible. The quarterback position is so demanding that many young signal callers crumble under the pressure. The fastest way out of the league is throwing interceptions. If he continues to turn the ball over Teddy will lose the trust of his teammates. He is young, and it is early, but I don't like what I have seen so far.

This all makes sense until the Vikings are 0-4, and the fans want to see the rook come out and play. If Mike Zimmer can keep the Vikings competitive he will be able to maintain Bridgewater as a second fiddle, but the more they lose, the more pressure Zimmer will have to play Teddy Bridgewater.

This should not change much for your tiers and rankings. He is a late round selection at best, and is more fit for Dynasty or keeper leagues.

Surprising Return


Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater throwing the ball the same way after a long layoff? "I think better, honestly."

This injury was thought to be possibly career ending, I'm happy to see him make it back. It's going to take him a couple of games to get back to NFL game speed and he probably won't be using his legs a whole lot. Its possible Bridgewater is starting again in Week 11. I have him stashed in a couple of deep roster leagues, but I don't really see him making any impact on a contender.

Adrian Peterson could quite possibly see even more carries, while Jerick McKinnon could see increased carries as well as more dump off passes. Stefon Diggs should see the same amount of targets and shouldn't have his value affected too much.

Skinny Post Treadwell


Rookie Laquon Treadwell seems an ideal fit for the game-altering pass play offensive coordinator Norv Turner is associated with. Michael Irvin sliced through NFL secondaries with his signature “Bang 8” route countless times during his Hall of Fame career. “Laquon’s more physically gifted than I was. And he looks to be a real competitor,” Irvin said.

Fantasy Goo: Michael Irvin is well respected for his knowledge of the wide receiver game and judging talent. At 6’2” and running a 4.52 forty Treadwell may remind us of Irvin as Michael did not beat defenses with speed but crafty push-offs which he perfected and the league later banned. Treadwell will need to learn to get open without Irvin’s signature straight-arm. You should never get too excited for rookie receivers for fantasy purposes. There are few Randy Moss monster seasons. The second thing to worry about is that Treadwell will have third year QB Teddy Bridgewater who is not a superstar fantasy QB. Bridgewater has thrown 14 touchdowns in each of his first two seasons.

Rudolph only caught 49 passes in 2015 but, has potential for 70 if Teddy progresses.

The Vikings Look to Pillage


Teddy Bridgewater has worked on his lame duck balls during the offseason and Mike Zimmer is raving on his deep ball touch and accuracy. Some of Teddy's biggest knocks coming out of Louisville was his strength with the deep ball and padded stats through a lateral, intermediate passing offense.

Fantasy Goo: With the addition of LaQuon Treadwell and flashes of a young emerging star, Stefon Diggs, this passing offense could exhibit a bump in stats. The Vikings tend to feed Adrian Peterson the ball but with a fast, young defense they could take attempts down the field. The addition of Treadwell alone adds Red Zone targets. Treadwell has an innate ability to high point the ball, while Diggs has the ability to burn or run underneath routes to compliment Treadwell. Expect higher production than average from a developing QB, Teddy Bridgewater this year.

Teddy Bridgewater to benefit from playing his home games indoors going forward.


Spielman said he’s “very excited” about what the team will see from Bridgewater in 2016. That will be his third year with the Vikings and Spielman said that he’s seen “significant jumps” from other quarterbacks when they reach that point in their careers. Spielman pointed to additions to the offensive coaching staff and the way the offense played in the final weeks of the regular season as reasons for the optimism.

“If you look at Teddy’s stats and how he performed when we were indoors –when we were in Detroit, even out at Arizona, some of those ideal conditions — we feel he’s going to even take another step forward,” Spielman said. “He still has to be able play outdoors. We still have to go to Chicago, we have to go to Green Bay every year.”

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said new TEs coach Pat Shurmur and new OL coach Tony Sparano will bring "different ideas" to the offense.


The addition of former Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur to the Minnesota Vikings' offensive staff won't trigger major changes to the team's hierarchy for the 2016 season. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner will continue to call plays while Shurmur and offensive line coach Tony Sparano -- each former head coaches who worked as coordinators in 2015 -- will have the same responsibilities as any other position coach.--ESPN

"The No. 1 thing is, they're all good coaches," Zimmer said at the Senior Bowl on Wednesday. "They've all got great reputations. No. 2 is, when you're a head coach, you're never afraid to speak your mind. The possibility of all of them sitting in there, and the personalities of guys like Tony and Pat, they're not afraid to speak their minds on ideas. I just think the more good coaches you can get, the better it is."

The Vikings Look to Pillage


Teddy Bridgewater has worked on his lame duck balls during the offseason and Mike Zimmer is raving on his deep ball touch and accuracy. Some of Teddy's biggest knocks coming out of Louisville was his strength with the deep ball and padded stats through a lateral, intermediate passing offense.

Fantasy Goo: With the addition of LaQuon Treadwell and flashes of a young emerging star, Stefon Diggs, this passing offense could exhibit a bump in stats. The Vikings tend to feed Adrian Peterson the ball but with a fast, young defense they could take attempts down the field. The addition of Treadwell alone adds Red Zone targets. Treadwell has an innate ability to high point the ball, while Diggs has the ability to burn or run underneath routes to compliment Treadwell. Expect higher production than average from a developing QB, Teddy Bridgewater this year.

Teddy Bridgewater to benefit from playing his home games indoors going forward.


Spielman said he’s “very excited” about what the team will see from Bridgewater in 2016. That will be his third year with the Vikings and Spielman said that he’s seen “significant jumps” from other quarterbacks when they reach that point in their careers. Spielman pointed to additions to the offensive coaching staff and the way the offense played in the final weeks of the regular season as reasons for the optimism.

“If you look at Teddy’s stats and how he performed when we were indoors –when we were in Detroit, even out at Arizona, some of those ideal conditions — we feel he’s going to even take another step forward,” Spielman said. “He still has to be able play outdoors. We still have to go to Chicago, we have to go to Green Bay every year.”

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said new TEs coach Pat Shurmur and new OL coach Tony Sparano will bring "different ideas" to the offense.


The addition of former Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur to the Minnesota Vikings' offensive staff won't trigger major changes to the team's hierarchy for the 2016 season. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner will continue to call plays while Shurmur and offensive line coach Tony Sparano -- each former head coaches who worked as coordinators in 2015 -- will have the same responsibilities as any other position coach.--ESPN

"The No. 1 thing is, they're all good coaches," Zimmer said at the Senior Bowl on Wednesday. "They've all got great reputations. No. 2 is, when you're a head coach, you're never afraid to speak your mind. The possibility of all of them sitting in there, and the personalities of guys like Tony and Pat, they're not afraid to speak their minds on ideas. I just think the more good coaches you can get, the better it is."

Vikings want Teddy B to be more decisive


The Vikings are asking Teddy Bridgewater to be more decisive with the ball, to help cut down on the number of sacks they're allowing on Sundays. Bridgewater faces a Falcons team that's put less pressure on opposing QBs than all but one team in the NFL this season. But Atlanta hasn't given up many big plays, and the Falcons are ranked first in the league against the rush. Bridgewater has found most of his success on quick-hitting plays to receivers such as Stefon Diggs in recent weeks, and his ability to get Diggs involved on quick passes could be a key for the Vikings come Sunday. -- Ben Goessling

Vikings expect Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) to be cleared for Sunday's game


Chris Tomasson has reported via Twitter "Mike Zimmer said he thinks Teddy Bridgewater should be "good to go.'' Sunday at Oakland. Has passed first test"

Looks good especially since he already passed the first test.

Teddy Bridgewater at Practice


Great news for those looking to start him for a bye-week replacement. It will be good to see him back-at-it, as he looks to be an exciting rookie, and could be the quarterback the Vikings have looking for.

Teddy B Not Ready for PT


Being that it was a rain slicked ball-game to start, on top of an ankle injury, it was probably the right call to make for Zimmer. Bridgewater did state that if the game was on Sunday he would be ready to take the field. “It would have allowed me more days to rehab and treat the injury."

Teddy Bridgewater will be back-in-action next week, and if you are in need of a bye-week replacement, he could fit in nicely.

Bridgewater needs to cut down the turnovers


Teddy is showing the signs of being a rookie, but he needs to right the ship as soon as possible. The quarterback position is so demanding that many young signal callers crumble under the pressure. The fastest way out of the league is throwing interceptions. If he continues to turn the ball over Teddy will lose the trust of his teammates. He is young, and it is early, but I don't like what I have seen so far.

Teddy Bridgewater named as a back-up


This all makes sense until the Vikings are 0-4, and the fans want to see the rook come out and play. If Mike Zimmer can keep the Vikings competitive he will be able to maintain Bridgewater as a second fiddle, but the more they lose, the more pressure Zimmer will have to play Teddy Bridgewater.

This should not change much for your tiers and rankings. He is a late round selection at best, and is more fit for Dynasty or keeper leagues.
