2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
It’s almost as if Bridgewater’s 2014 and 2015 season looked in the mirror, because it many ways they’re nearly statistically identical. He finished as the No.22 overall QB in 2014 and the 23rd overall in 2015. He’s thrown for 14 touchdowns in each of his first two seasons, and his passing yardage totals have been within 300 yards of each other. Completion percentage? You guessed it, less than 1% difference. Just for fun, his rushing total difference was only 17 yards. Other than statistical oddities, why bring up theses correlations? Because it gives us a great basis for evaluating his 2016 value.

The way I see it, as long as No.28 is in the backfield and running like a wild horse that just escaped from the stable, Bridgewater is going to be nothing more than a game manager. The conservative style fits not only head coach Mike Zimmer, but it was a successful enough formula to get the Vikings a division title, and one missed kick from a deep playoff run. Bridgewater lacks the big arm that gives the Norm Turner offense it’s teeth, and the pass protection, while improved with some offseason additions, was one of the league’s worst last year. The addition of rookie Laquon Treadwell will help, as he provides a big body, and sturdy possession receiver. But there just isn’t higher than a 20 touchdown ceiling in this offensive scheme. Bridgewater is a fine NFL player, and will fill the role for the Vikings, but in fantasy he sits as an uninspiring, low-end QB2.

News From The Past 90 Days
Vikings eyeing more shotgun plays in 2016
Peterson has struggled out of shotgun his entire career
By: Doug Orth | Thu Jul 21, 11:35 pm

Minnesota Vikings
Adrian Peterson has vowed to become a better pass-catcher. But what is more relevant in regards to his playing time is whether he will be able to adapt to the shotgun spread attack that better suits third-year QB Teddy Bridgewater. Peterson struggled running out of the shotgun early last season, so the Vikings started calling more under-center plays. They figure to go back to a more shotgun-centric offense this season, which means Peterson will have to make the most of his shotgun carries. He will finally get a chance to take some in contract drills during training camp. (Minneapolis Star-Tribune)

FFToday's Take: AP has 2,381 career carries but only 122 of them have come out of shotgun. In those attempts, he is averaging 3.8 YPC. Last season, he ran for only 59 yards on 37 shotgun carries. The Vikings attempted this approach in Week 1 last season and mostly abandoned it after getting routed by San Francisco. If Minnesota has early success with it this year, don't be surprised if Peterson struggles to live up to his draft position.
