• Dalvin Cook - RB
    Posted 11/15/18 9:25am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook is a full-go this week coming off the team's bye, offensive coordinator John DeFilippo said Thursday, Nov. 15. Cook is expected to receive a strong workload in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears.

    Huddle Up: Cook had 14 touches -- his highest total since Week 1 -- in his Week 9 return from a four-game hamstring injury absence. The Bears present a formidable matchup, but Cook owners can plug him back into his RB2 starting slot with confidence.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR
    Posted 11/15/18 2:48pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (rib) fully participated in practice Thursday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Diggs is coming off one of his best games of the season and has been targeted at least 10 times in six of the last seven games. He can be considered a low-end No. 2 or a No. 3 receiver in most leagues even though he is facing a tough Chicago Bears defense.

  • Adam Thielen - WR
    Posted 11/15/18 2:47pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (back, calf) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 15.

    Huddle Up: Thielen does not appear to be in danger of missing the Week 11, but owners will know more about his status later in the week. He will be facing a tough Chicago Bears defense this week but can still be a No. 2 fantasy receiver in most leagues.

  • Adam Thielen - WR
    Posted 11/14/18 2:25pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (back, calf) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 24.

    Huddle Up: Thielen is coming off of what was easily his worst outing of the year in Week 10, but he's still riding a six-game touchdown streak and has scored in seven of nine games this year. Thielen can be mentioned among the matchup-proof wide receivers.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR
    Posted 11/14/18 2:20pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (rib) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Nov. 14.

    Huddle Up: The Chicago Bears have been better than average against the pass, but the Vikings are capable of succeeding versus any defense. View Diggs as a low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 as he takes the field after missing a week.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR
    Posted 11/13/18 10:16pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (ribs) indicated he 'will play' against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Nov. 18, as part of an interview with NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

    Huddle Up: Diggs didn't play in Week 9, so he'll have had three full weeks to heal up for a divisional showdown with the Bears. Through eight games, Diggs is averaging 7.3 receptions, 74 yards and 0.5 TDs per game. Assuming there are no setbacks, Diggs looks like a strong WR2 this Sunday.

  • Adam Thielen - WR
    Posted 11/5/18 11:06am ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (calf) dealt with a calf injury all week and was heating it on the sideline between series during the team's win against the Detroit Lions, according to FOX Sports sideline reporter Jen Hale.

    Huddle Up: This would explain his meager production against the Lions, although he still did his fantasy owners proud by finding the end zone. He'll get the bye in Week 10 to rest up before he likely return to elite WR1 form in Week 11 versus the Chicago Bears.

  • Laquon Treadwell - WR
    Posted 11/4/18 9:12am ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Laquon Treadwell will start the team's Week 9 game Sunday, Nov. 4, in place of the injured Stefon Diggs (ribs).

    Huddle Up: Treadwell is averaging 4.6 targets per game this season, but this will be the first time that either Diggs and fellow target monster Adam Thielen -- who are averaging a combined 22.6 targets per contest -- has missed a game. So expect Treadwell to get a few more looks, but expect Diggs' target share to be spread around amongst several players, leaving Treadwell as more of a dart-throw flex play.

  • Latavius Murray - RB
    Posted 11/4/18 9:25am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray will still serve as the team's lead back Sunday., Nov. 4, with activated fellow RB Dalvin Cook expected to see a package of 15-20 snaps coming off a hamstring injury.

    Huddle Up: Murray has been averaging a healthy 18.3 touches the last four weeks with Cook sidelined, but even if that total sees a slight decrease Sunday, Murray still remains a solid RB2 play with six teams on bye and facing a Detroit Lions defense surrendering the sixth-most fantasy points to opposing RBs.

  • Latavius Murray - RB
    Posted 11/4/18 1:53pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray ran 10 times for 31 yards and a touchdown in the Week 9 game against the Detroit Lions and he added a 16-yard grab on his only target.

    Huddle Up: Dalvin Cook was back from injury and that hurt Murray's value, as it was back to an even split of the backfield carries. Cook averaging 8.9 yards per tote, while Murray had just 3.1 yards per rush. Murray's fantasy outlook after the bye in Week 10 is rather murky with Cook back.

  • Dalvin Cook - RB
    Posted 11/4/18 1:52pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed 10 times for 89 yards in Week 9 against the Detroit Lions and he added four receptions for 20 yards.

    Huddle Up: Cook was back from a multi-week injury and he made his presence felt, splitting carries with Latavius Murray in a busy backfield. The Vikings averaged 5.6 yards per rush on 23 carries in the win. Cook will get a week off with the bye, returning in Week 11.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB
    Posted 11/4/18 1:44pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 18-of-22 passes for 164 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the Week 9 win against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: The Vikings won, but it was mostly thanks to their rushing attack. Cousins had rather pedestrian numbers. If you normally depend on him for fantasy purposes you'll have to go another way with the Vikings on a bye in Week 10.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE
    Posted 11/4/18 2:33pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph managed just two grabs for 28 yards on two targets in Week 9 against the Detroit Lions.

    Huddle Up: Rudolph struggled against the Lions defense, and now fantasy owners will get nothing from him in Week 10 because of the bye, too.

  • Adam Thielen - WR
    Posted 11/4/18 2:31pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen registered four receptions for 22 yards and a touchdown in Week 9 against the Detroit Lions, ending his NFL record-tying streak of eight-straight games with 100 or more yards.

    Huddle Up: Thielen was still able to get into the end zone, and fantasy owners can't be too mad that the streak is over. He has been a fantasy beast all season. The Vikings are off in Week 10 for their bye.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR
    Posted 11/3/18 8:35pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (ribs) is unlikely to play against the Detroit Lions in Week 9, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: With Diggs likely sidelined, Adam Thielen should be even busier than usual, and Laquon Treadwell could be worth a roll of the dice in DFS lineups.

  • Dalvin Cook - RB
    Posted 11/3/18 8:40pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) is expected to be available for a package of plays against the Detroit Lions in Week 9.

    Huddle Up: With Cook expected to play in a limited role, Latavius Murray should still have RB2 upside against a Detroit defense that has allowed a lot of yards on the ground.

  • Dalvin Cook - RB
    Posted 11/2/18 10:11am ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) could return and play limited snaps in Week 9 against the Detroit Lions, sources said Friday, Nov. 2.

    Huddle Up: Cook has been sidelined since Week 4, and this would seem to be a curious plan with the team's bye week just ahead in Week 10. If Cook is active, his fantasy owners will need to make a call depending on if they absolutely need him or not, given six teams are on bye. Just don't expect much.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR
    Posted 11/2/18 2:28pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (rib) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Diggs' status for Week 9 may not be known until the inactive list is posted, but it is not a good sign that he missed all three days of practice. Owners will need other options available in case Diggs is ruled out.

  • Dalvin Cook - RB
    Posted 11/2/18 2:24pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Nov. 2, and is listed as questionable for Week 9.

    Huddle Up: Cook could be a game-time decision again this week, so owners should monitor the situation during the weekend. He will be a risky option in fantasy leagues and could be benched if owners have better options available.

  • Latavius Murray - RB
    Posted 11/2/18 7:34pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray faces the Detroit Lions in Week 9, and the Lions are allowing the second-most yards per carry and a league-high 144.6 rushing yards per game.

    Huddle Up: Murray has been rolling the last three games, averaging 5.4 yards per carry and scoring four times. If Dalvin Cook remains sidelined in Week 9, Murray can be a RB2 against the Lions.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR
    Posted 11/1/18 1:16pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (rib) was unable to practice Thursday, Nov. 1.

    Huddle Up: Diggs has already said he'll play, so don't be too alarmed. His status should be monitored over the next couple days, though. If he's active then he'll be solidly in low-end WR1 to high-end WR2 territory.

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (rib) was unable to practice Thursday, Nov. 1.

  • Dalvin Cook - RB
    Posted 11/1/18 1:12pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 1.

    Huddle Up: Cook is one of the bigger question marks in Week 9. He has a chance to play but the Vikings may choose to hold him out through their bye next week. If he's sidelined then Latavius Murray possesses low-end RB1 to high-end RB2 appeal.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR
    Posted 10/31/18 1:38pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs (rib) was not able to practice Wednesday, Oct. 31.

    Huddle Up: Diggs will be one of the bigger names to monitor throughout the week. If he improves and is able to play he's a WR1 candidate in what will be a high-flying affair against the New Orleans Saints.

  • Dalvin Cook - RB
    Posted 10/31/18 1:42pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (hamstring) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 31.

    Huddle Up: Keep a close eye on Cook as there was talk last week of him being held out through the bye week. If he is inactive then Latavius Murray will once again be an RB2 option.

  • Stefon Diggs - WR
    Posted 10/28/18 8:33pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs caught 10 passes on 11 targets for 119 yards and a touchdown in a 30-20 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 8.

    Huddle Up: Diggs bounced back after managing just 33 receiving yards in each of his previous two games, and while he has been a little boom or bust, he has WR1 upside whenever he takes the field.

  • Adam Thielen - WR
    Posted 10/28/18 8:38pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen finished with seven catches for 103 yards and a touchdown in a 30-20 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 8, setting the record for the most consecutive 100-yard receiving games to start a season.

    Huddle Up: Thielen is having a season for the ages, and Minnesota's potent passing attack could allow him to continue this torrid pace.

  • Latavius Murray - RB
    Posted 10/28/18 9:09pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings RB Latavius Murray carried 13 times for 56 yards and a touchdown and added five catches for 39 yards in Week 8 against the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Murray had 28 yards rushing after three attempts on the first drive before the league's best run defense shut things down. Since coming out of the gates painfully slow over his first five games, Murray has been a fantasy stud in large part because he has found the end zone four times over that stretch. Assuming Dalvin Cook is forced to sit out at least one more game, Murray figures to be an easy RB2 start for his owners in Week 9 versus the Detroit Lions.

  • Kirk Cousins - QB
    Posted 10/28/18 9:23pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins finished 31-of-41 for 359 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in Week 8 versus the New Orleans Saints. He added two carries for three yards.

    Huddle Up: Cousins started off fast with a touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs, but the story of this game was his star receivers committing one big mistake apiece. Adam Thielen's fumble following a catch late in the first half led to a New Orleans touchdowns, while Diggs stopped on a crossing route and Cousins threw a pass right into the waiting arms of P.J. Williams, who ran it back 45 yards for a score. Cousins should remain a strong QB1 option in Week 9 against the Detroit Lions.

  • Kyle Rudolph - TE
    Posted 10/28/18 9:51pm ET

    Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph caught four of his seven targets for 39 yards in Week 8 versus the New Orleans Saints.

    Huddle Up: Rudolph got off to a decent start this season with at least five catches and/or a touchdown in his first five games, but he's totaled nine receptions for 92 scoreless yards over his last three efforts. Even in a down year at his position, production like that isn't going to cut it. As such, he's going to be a hard player to start outside of as a bye-week fill-in until things change.
