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.

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.

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.
