Vikings HC Mike Zimmer announced on Wednesday that QB Case Keenum will start this weekend's game against the Rams. There's excitement for QB Teddy Bridgewater, but Keenum is simply playing too well to bench right now. That said, he's just a QB2 this week vs. a tough Rams defense.
Vikings QB Case Keenum will start Sunday's game against the Redskins, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports. QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) will be activated to the 53-man roster this week and is expected to be ready to start "relatively soon." How Keenum performs from week-to-week now will likely decide whether and when Bridgewater gets on the field. Minnesota, meanwhile, is considering placing QB Sam Bradford on IR with his knee injury.
The Vikings have signed QB Case Keenum, according to FOX 26 in Houston. The move doesn't mean much for fantasy owners, given that Keenum's not good enough to push Sam Bradford for a job. But the former Texan and Ram seems slightly high-profile for a 3rd QB, and we're all waiting to see if Teddy Bridgewater will be able to return from his 2016 knee injury. We'll be watching for any progress from Bridgewater this offseason. Minnesota's QB spot, meanwhile, doesn't make for an attractive fantasy football target.
Rams HC Jeff Fisher announced Monday night that QB Case Keenum will remain the starter for this weekend's game against the Dolphins. There was talk that QB Jared Goff would debut in that one, but Keenum did JUST enough to get the Rams a win against the Jets last Sunday. He's not long for this starting job, though. Los Angeles' next loss could usher in the Goff Era.
Rams HC Jeff Fisher announced after Sunday's loss to the Cardinals that QB Case Keenum will start Week 14. QB Nick Foles turned in another ugly outing vs. Arizona, completing just 15 of 35 passes for 146 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INTs. It was his 4th straight outing without a score. Keenum tossed for just 136 yards and 1 TD in a plus matchup against the Ravens in his only action this season. Continue to avoid the Rams passing game.
