2015 DRAFT GUIDE
Team Grade:
Minnesota Vikings
Quarterbacks: Running Backs:
Wide Receivers: Tight Ends:
Defense: Kickers:

Outlook

The Vikings have some potential for the coming year. The offense has a chance to be much better with Peterson back in the fold and Bridgewater another year older. The defense isnā??t too shabby but is probably just average compared to the rest of the league. Minnesota will contend for a playoff spot but might be a season or two away from really making an impact in the league. They are getting closer, though.
FANTASY BREAKOUT
His rookie season was overlooked a little because his team wasnā??t very good, but Teddy Bridgewater made strides throughout last season and finished well as the starter for the Vikings. He has more weapons to work with at receiver this year and Adrian Peterson as his running back, which should open things up for the passing game. We expect big things from Bridgewater in his second season, emerging as a fantasy option at quarterback. Heā??ll be worth some spot starts in 2015.
FANTASY DUD
Big things were expected from Kyle Rudolph last season but injuries once again marred his season. He might be playing in a tight-end friendly offense, but if he canā??t stay on the field, Rudolph isnā??t a help for fantasy teams. Heā??ll get drafted higher than he should come draft day, disappointing many fantasy teams along the way.
