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.

Team Notes

Jul 06, 04:13 PM Minnesota Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater said the Vikings still have a long way to go in order to fulfill expectations. 'Right now, we're not as good as what we think,' Bridgewater said. 'We know that the ceiling is very high and the expectation level is very high, not only for the players, but [for the coaches] also. We know what's being asked of us, but we have a long way to go.'
Jul 04, 04:43 PM Minnesota Vikings CB Joshua Robinson (pectoral) has a torn pectoral muscle injury, per an NFL source. Robinson wouldn't comment on the severity of the injury, but he said he's looking forward to playing in the 2015 season.

Jul 01, 04:13 PM Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson has score double-digit touchdowns in every season of his eight-year NFL career. Last season is the exception as he only played in one game due to allegation of child abuse. When Peterson has played at least 12 games, he has scored at least 10 touchdowns. From 2007 to 2013, Peterson averaged 12.29 touchdowns per season.
Jun 29, 02:52 PM Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson still believes he's the best running back in the NFL. This was in response to Peterson being named the 62nd best player on the NFL Network's top 100 players list.
Jun 29, 02:02 PM Minnesota Vikings WR Charles X. Johnson appears to have everything it takes to produce in the NFL, according to offensive coordinator Norv Turner. 'He's got great work ethic, and he's a big, strong guy. He's a 218-pound receiver that can run. He's got everything you need to be a productive player in this league,' Turner said. Turner believes Johnson has completely recovered from the knee surgery he had last offseason. Johnson has been working at split end in three-receiver sets during offseason workouts.

Fantasy Impact: Johnson is setup for a breakout season. He can produce big in this offense.
