Vikings fantasy forecast

Post by dead_poet »

I wrote a thing that was posted on FSF on Vikings fantasy players.

Good stuff.

Admittedly, I just skimmed through that, but, still... :clap:

Ha! Thanks. I could've written about four more pages but attempted to keep it short. "Attempt" is the key word there.

Hmmmm.

If Cassel starts, I'll put him in as a back-up if Bridgewater starts, I might list him as a starter. I think he can hit more targets than Cassel and Ponder. Speaking of Ponder if he starts, I won't even draft him.

As for running backs, Adrian Peterson starting is no brainer. Very hard to obtain him, he's one of the players that never stay on the draft boards unless you pick before most of the other players. All the other RBs pass.

Greg Jennings would be the only WR I trust starting right now. I had Cordarelle Patterson on my team last year and we know how awful the Vikings were at trying to give him the ball. This year may be different under Norv but I would sign him after week 3 if he's putting up big points consistently. All the other WRs, pass.

Kyle Rudolph, definitely a starter. All the other TEs pass.

The Vikings defense would be a risk getting this year but they may be surprisingly good. I might take a chance on them.

As for kicker, Blair Walsh, definitely want him. He's been the kicker on all my fantasy teams since we drafted him.

A bit more analysis of why to be weary of taking Patterson too high:
