NFC North Player Analysis
Doug Coutts, FantasySharks.com, Senior Staff Writer

Minnesota Vikings (vs Washington Redskins)

QB Teddy Bridgewater: He is settling in as the Vikings conservative approach is keeping the turnovers to a minimum. With the focus on the run, not a lot of passing stats this week. ( 231 yds pass with 1 TD and 1 Int; 11 yds rush )

QB Christian Ponder: ( 75 yds pass with 1 TD; 5 yds rush )

RB Jerick McKinnon: As the clear number one, he will have the most carries and yards, but it would sure be nice if he can find the end zone. ( 70 yds rush; 2 catches for 17 yds )

RB Matt Asiata: McKinnon has taken over, minimal stats here only. ( 28 yds rush; 2 catches for 17 yds )

RB Joe Banyard: ( 4 yds rush; 1 catch for 3 yds )

WR Greg Jennings: The veteran is seeing his numbers take a steady slide downward, seek other options if you have them. ( 5 catches for 59 yds )

WR Cordarrelle Patterson: The Vikings are making a better effort to get him the ball more, but in the Minnesota passing offense that is not going to translate into that many fantasy points. ( 4 yds rush; 3 catches for 34 yds )

WR Jarius Wright: Once a favorite target of Bridgewater, he has slipped back to the #3 option in the passing game. ( 1 yd rush; 3 catches for 41 yds )

WR Adam Thielen: ( 1 catch for 8 yds )

WR Charles Johnson: ( 1 catch for 5 yds )

TE Chase Ford: Bridgewater is getting more comfortable going through his reads, which means Ford will continue to be an active pass catcher. ( 4 catches for 38 yds )

TE Rhett Ellison: ( 1 catch for 10 yds )

TE MarQueis Gray: ( 1 yd rush; 1 catch for 1 yd )

PK Blair Walsh: The Vikings will get him a couple of mid-range field goal attempts so he is a middle of the road option at kicker. ( 2 XPs, 2 FGs )

Def Minnesota Vikings: The overtime score was the exclamation point on a decent fantasy effort last week, expect another good game as this group continues to get after the quarterback. ( 3 sacks, 1 INT, 1 Fumble )
