Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater FA status unclear

Thu, 01 Feb 2018 22:47:05 -0800

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Vikings | Mike Zimmer not sold on Case Keenum?

Tue, 23 Jan 2018 12:19:54 -0800

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Vikings | Teddy Bridgewater believes he can start

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 09:29:09 -0800

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.

Fantasy Tip: 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.

Vikings | Minnesota tempted to start Teddy Bridgewater

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 11:38:24 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater was reportedly very close to overtaking Case Keenum for the starting job in large part because the Vikings view Bridgewater as "their franchise," according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer.

Fantasy Tip: What it means is that Keenum will be on the shortest of leashes despite throwing for four touchdowns in Week 10. The Vikings need to be able to make a decision on him as he can become a free agent after the season. Minnesota knows Keenum is a placeholder at best; what the team needs to find out is if Bridgewater is more than what he showed in a limited offense built around Adrian Peterson in 2014 and 2015. He's worth stashing in all fantasy leagues.

Vikings | Case Keenum will remain starter

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 13:20:17 -0800

Minnesota Vikings QB Case Keenum will continue to start despite QB Teddy Bridgewater being available to return.

Fantasy Tip: It would have been difficult to bench Keenum for Bridgewater given the circumstances. The Vikings are rolling on offense, Keenum is playing well and they're riding a five-game winning streak. Why mess up the momentum? Even so, Keenum can't be trusted as QB1 this week in a tough matchup with the Los Angeles Rams.
