The Associated Press reports that the Vikings will name Gary Kubiak their new OC. Kubiak spent 2019 on the Minnesota staff as an offensive adviser and assistant to HC Mike Zimmer. The move gives Minnesota continuity from the scheme that helped usher in RB Dalvin Cook's 2019 breakout while deploying 1 of the league's most run-heavy approaches. We'd expect plenty more running under an OC who has historically liked his RBs. QB Kirk Cousins, meanwhile, finished 2019 low in QB2 territory, reaching 2 TD passes in just 7 of 15 games. Expect him to remain in QB2 territory in our 2020 fantasy football rankings, and approach Cousins as a platoon option in the double-digit rounds of early best-ball drafting. He and Minnesota's WRs do, at least, present a nice week-to-week ceiling.
Vikings MLB Eric Kendricks left in the 1st half on the Monday night game against the Packers with a quad injury. He's officially questionable to return, but Kendricks could be seen in a sweatshirt on the sideline in the 3rd quarter. He's probably not wearing that back into the game.
Vikings S Harrison Smith (hamstring), DT Linval Joseph (knee) and S Anthony Harris (groin) are active for tonight's game against the Seahawks. Each entered the day questionable but is ready if you waited on him for IDP use.
Vikings DT Linval Joseph (knee), S Harrison Smith (hamstring) and S Anthony Harris (groin) are questionable for Monday night's game against the Seahawks. Joseph and Smith each progressed to full Saturday workouts and look likely to make it back for the game. Harris spent the full week limited and isn't worth waiting on for IDP lineups.
Vikings S Harrison Smith left Sunday's win over the Broncos late with a left hamstring injury. He gets a well-timed Week 12 bye, so we'll see about Smith's status for Week 13.
The Vikings have ruled S Anthony Harris out for Sunday's game against the Broncos because of a groin injury. He put in a limited practice Wednesday before sitting out the next 2 days. Jayron Kearse figures to get the start in his place. Minnesota will also go without DT Linval Joseph for the 2nd straight game. He had an operation on his right meniscus last week but might be back after the Week 12 bye.
The Vikings have ruled DT Linval Joseph out for Sunday night's game against the Cowboys with a knee injury. A Week 12 bye could factor into whether Minnesota brings Joseph back for next week's home date with Denver.
The Vikings have removed OLB Anthony Barr from the injury report. He missed last week's game with a knee injury, allowing Eric Wilson to take over full-time snaps and deliver a big IDP outing (11 tackles, 2 sacks). But with Barr ready to face the Bears, expect Wilson to return to playing about half the game and not offering much IDP value.
Vikings OLB Anthony Barr is inactive for today's game against the Raiders. Make sure he's not in your IDP lineups. His absence takes a playmaker out of the Minnesota lineup, but the defense remains a strong play against Oakland.
Never mind. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that OLB Anthony Barr has decided to re-sign with the Vikings rather than going to the Jets in free agency. That should keep him a limited IDP factor. It's also a reminder that none of these moves will be set until Wednesday afternoon, when free agency actually opens with the new league year.
The Vikings have ruled LB Eric Kendricks (hamstring) out for Sunday's game against the Bears. Eric Wilson started in his place last week, played 72 of 75 snaps and supplied 6 tackles (5 solo). If that's enough to make him worthwhile in your scoring system, then consider Wilson.
The Vikings have ruled LB Eric Kendricks out for Sunday's game against the Lions because of a hamstring injury. Kendricks' absence enhances the fantasy outlook for OLB Anthony Barr, raising his tackle floor.
Vikings DT Sheldon Richardson (hip) is active for today's game against the Dolphins. He's a lower-level IDP option but looks fine to use if he factored into your plans.
As expected, Vikings MLB Eric Kendricks is active for tonight's game against the Seahawks. He missed most of the practice week with a rib injury, but HC Mike Zimmer said Kendricks would be "fine" for the game.
Vikings MLB Eric Kendricks is questionable for Monday night's game against the Seahawks with a rib injury. He missed practice Thursday and Friday before returning to a limited Saturday workout. The team expects him to play against Seattle, though. HC Mike Zimmer told the Pioneer Press that Kendricks "will be fine." Plan to have Kendricks available for your IDP lineups. We'll confirm his status Monday evening.
Vikings S Andrew Sendejo (groin) will miss his 4th straight game today. He's inactive for the clash with the Lions. Lead CB Xavier Rhodes, however, will play through a "questionable" tag for a foot issue.
