Adrian Peterson limited in practice -- Wed Nov 18 5:09 pm --
Teddy Bridgewater practices in full
Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has a left shoulder injury ó thatís his non-throwing arm, of course ó but he was listed as a full participant. Running back Adrian Peterson was limited with a hamstring injury. (Star Tribune)
FF Today's Take:It's too early in the week to be concerned about Adrian Peterson's status for Week 11. The veteran running back remains likely to play against the Packers on Sunday but owners will want to check in later in the week for an update. If Peterson's hamstring remains a concern heading into the weekend, Jerick McKinnon would fill the void in the backfield. Teddy Bridgewater didn't miss any reps in practice despite being listed on the injury report. He appears to be playing through a nagging shoulder injury but won't miss any time.
Bridgewater listed as questionable this week-- Fri Nov 13 4:45 pm --
QB still hasn't passed concussion protocol
Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater still hasnít been cleared through the concussion protocol. But officially, heís a 50-50 chance to play. Via Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Bridgewater is listed as questionable for Sundayís game against the Raiders. But before the report was announced, Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said he was confident Bridgewater would be cleared in time to play.(NBC Sports)
FF Today's Take:Bridgewater gets a fantastic matchup in the Oakland Raiders this week, who are allowing a league-worst 314.6 passing yards per game this season. But his current status creates a risk for fantasy owners because the Vikes play at 4:05 EST, meaning a wait-and-see approach could leave fantasy owners with no other options.
HC: Bridgewater should be good to go in Week 10-- Mon Nov 9 4:55 pm --
FF Today's Take:It's obviously a good sign for a player that was knocked unconscious for a short time on Sunday. However, owners would be wise to treat this news as a cautious thumbs-up since we have seen symptoms flare up later in the week on players that have suffered concussions before. Bridgewater would be a low-end fantasy starter for this game anyway, but Stefon Diggs is probably the player with the most to lose statistically. Shaun Hill would draw the start if Bridgewater cannot go.
