49ers WR Anquan Boldin (hamstring) is doubtful for Week 9.  He didn't practice all week and won't play against Atlanta on Sunday.  That leaves Blaine Gabbert to throw to Torrey Smith, Jerome Simpson and Quinton Patton.  Fire up the Falcons defense.

49ers WR Anquan Boldin (hamstring) is inactive for today’s game against the Rams. That leaves Torrey Smith as the #1 WR with Quinton Patton, Bruce Ellington and Jerome Simpson behind him. We'd avoid the entire Niners passing game.

49ers WR Anquan Boldin (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams.  He played through the injury last week but aggravated the hammy in practice on Thursday and didn't practice on Friday.  He looks like a game-time decision.  We'll find out Boldin's status by noon ET on Sunday, but he's not a recommended fantasy play at less than 100% in a tough matchup. The team website also reports that the Niners are "ramping up" WR Jerome Simpson for his debut. The offseason free-agent addition spent the 1st 6 weeks on suspension and then sat out the Thursday night game in Week 7. Simpson has reportedly impressed coaches with his preparedness, though. We'll see what kind of role awaits. Don't bet on much fantasy impact.

49ers WR Jerome Simpson has been suspended 6 games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.  He received a 3-game ban last year and was subsequently released by the Vikings.  This latest suspension might end his time in San Francisco.  Simpson is well off the fantasy radar.

The 49ers have signed WR Jerome Simpson to a 2-year deal, according to ESPN's Field Yates.  Simpson was out of the league last season after drawing a 3-game ban and being released by the Vikings.  But he posted a 48-726-1 line back in 2013 and is averaging 13.8 yards per catch for his career.  The 29-year-old could help the Niners stretch the field but is a long shot to come into any real fantasy football value.

The Vikings have released WR Jerome Simpson.  Currently serving a 3-game suspension for a DWI arrest, Simpson is also facing marijuana charges.  He's still only 28 years old, but these legal issues might spell the end of his NFL career.

Vikings WR Jerome Simpson is facing a 3-game suspension for his DUI arrest in November.  He appealed the ban on Monday.  Simpson posted a career-high 726 yards last year but was passed on the depth chart by Cordarrelle Patterson late in the season.  Now battling with Jarius Wright for #3 duties, Simpson isn't worth a roster spot on your fantasy team.

The Vikings have re-signed WR Jerome Simpson.  He posted a career-high 726 yards last year but scored just once.  Simpson was passed on the depth chart by Cordarrelle Patterson late in the season and will be no better than #3 on the depth chart in 2014.  Simpson has some downfield ability, making him a nice fit in OC Norv Turner's offense.  But he won't be a reliable fantasy option this year.

Vikings WR Jerome Simpson is active for today’s game against Seattle.  Simpson was arrested for a DWI on Saturday morning, but he won’t face an immediate suspension from the team.  He’s not a recommended fantasy play against the Seahawks. 

Vikings WR Jerome Simpson is expected to play against the Seahawks on Sunday after last weekend’s DWI arrest.  It’s unclear if he’ll be in the starting lineup, though.  It’s just another reason to avoid fantasy’s #59 WR in a brutal matchup.

Vikings WR Jerome Simpson's status for this Sunday's game against the Seahawks is unclear after he was arrested for DUI over the weekend. “We’ll have further clarification as we learn more from the league as well as what we’re going to do internally,” HC Leslie Frazier said. “But from my standpoint there isn’t a whole lot more that I can add regarding his situation as we are continuing to gather more information.”  This isn't Simpson's 1st run-in with the law, so he might be looking at a suspension from Commissioner Goodell.  That's unlikely to come before this weekend, though.  We're betting on Simpson playing against Seattle, but he won't be a fantasy option.

Police arrested Vikings WR Jerome Simpson early Saturday morning on suspicion of DWI.  The incident comes in the 1st year of Simpson's 3-year probation following his March 2012 guilty plea on drug charges.  That case also got Simpson suspended by the league for the 1st 3 games of last season.  We'll see how Saturday's arrest affects his probation status.  Either way, it sure seems likely to incur further league action.  Simpson just might be using up his chances.  If he's not careful, he could soon find himself out of the league.

Vikings WR Jerome Simpson received a swift kick in the pants when the team added WR Cordarrelle Patterson in the 1st round of April's draft.  He'll need to be much better than he was last year (26 catches, 274 yards, 0 TDs) to hold off the ultra-talented Patterson for a starting spot.  Simpson is at least off to a good start this offseason.  He's healthy, and he's been working out with All-Pro Larry Fitzgerald.  “I wanted to work with one of the greats,” Simpson said. “I got an opportunity to come down here and work with him so I wanted to take full advantage of it.  I’m trying to pick his brain while I’m here and try and get in the same position that he is."  A 3-game suspension and lingering back injury were at least partly to blame for Simpson's disappointing 2012 season.  Expect him to be more effective this year.  But between Patterson breathing down his neck and Minnesota's shaky QB play, Simpson isn't a strong fantasy bet for fantasy value.

The Vikings have re-signed WR Jerome Simpson to a 1-year deal.  He was a colassal bust in his debut season in Minnesota, totaling 26 catches for 274 scoreless yards in 12 appearances.  A disc problem is his back was at least partly to blame.  The Vikings are banking on a bounce-back year from Simpson, who is only a year removed from a 725-yard, 4-TD campaign in Cincinnati.  Minnesota will still be looking to add WR talent through free agency and/or the draft.

11:36am EDT 10/21/12

Vikings WR Jerome Simpson (back) is active for today's game against the Cardinals.  He's expected to start but is just an emergency option in fantasy.

Vikings WR Jerome Simpson (back) put in a full week of practice and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.  HC Leslie Frazier confirmed that Simpson will be reinserted into the starting lineup.  Still, he's a shaky fantasy play until he proves he's back to 100%.  A matchup against a tough Arizona defense this week doesn't help either.

Vikings WR Jerome Simpson (back) put in a full practice on Wednesday.  He says he's playing against the Cardinals this weekend, although HC Leslie Frazier wouldn't commit.  Regardless, Simpson won't be a fantasy option until he shows that he has his burst back.

Vikings WR Jerome Simpson (back) believes he'll be "ready to go" for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.  Despite putting in a couple limited practices last week, Simpson was held out of yesterday's game against the Redskins.  We'll see what Simpson is able to do in practice this week, but he should be on fantasy benches until he proves that he's back to 100%.

3:04pm EDT 10/14/12

Vikings WR Jerome Simpson (back) is inactive for today’s matchup with Washington. Michael Jenkins and Devin Aromashodu will pick up the slack at WR. Neither guy makes for a viable fantasy play, despite the favorable matchup.

Vikings WR Jerome Simpson (back) is listed as questionable for Week 6.  He was able to put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday but will likely be a game-time decision.  At less than 100%, he's not a recommended fantasy option this week.
