Case Keenum completed 27-of-44 passes for 280 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Vikings' Week 14 loss to the Panthers.
Keenum rushed for 40 yards, making plays as usual with his feet and extending plays. He also lost a fumble on a strip-sack by Mario Addison. The three turnovers were obviously not ideal, but Keenum played pretty well. He was hurt badly by what the television crew counted as five drops by Minnesota pass-catchers. One of Keenum's picks was one of those by Stefon Diggs that popped right into the air. Keenum should be under center Week 15 against the Bengals. Dec 10 - 4:28 PM

Case Keenum completed 25-of-30 passes for 227 yards and two touchdowns in the Vikings' Week 13 win over the Falcons.

In a game of mostly fruitless drives, Keenum came up with a long one when it mattered most. Down by two late in the third quarter, Keenum orchestrated a 15-play drive on which he converted two third downs and found Kyle Rudolph for what ended up being the game-winning score. He also connected with Adam Thielen on a third-down late in the fourth quarter to help salt the massive win away. It was not a great fantasy performance from Keenum, but he now has multiple scores in four of his last five games. He will look to keep it going next week against the Panthers, a game coach Mike Zimmer confirmed Keenum will start.
Dec 3 - 3:48 PM

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said he is "going to go one week at a time" at quarterback.

Case Keenum was just named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for November, but that is not enough to earn him any assurances. "That's just the way it is," Zimmer said. "I'm not looking to pull him, but every week is a different week in this league." Keenum's leash has to be longer today than it was a month ago, but it is clear a couple bad performances still could see Teddy Bridgewater take over as the starter.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer wouldn’t commit to Case Keenum as his starter beyond next week.

Keenum has played good enough to not be benched, but remains on a short leash. Despite seven straight wins, he’s a bad week away from returning to a backup role. The Vikings view Teddy Bridgewater as their franchise quarterback and need to see Bridgewater post knee-surgery in a walk year. Keenum will start against the Falcons, but his job security is week-to-week.

Coach Mike Zimmer confirmed Case Keenum will start Week 13 against the Falcons.

It's impossible to go away from Keenum right now. The Vikings are rolling at 9-2, and Keenum just had another big game on Thanksgiving, throwing for 282 yards and two touchdowns in the win over Detroit. He's thrown multiple touchdowns in three of the last four games and is willing to take chances, scramble around to make plays, and stand in the face of pass rushers. Keenum is playing easily the best ball of his pro career and will have Week 13 streaming appeal.

Case Keenum completed 21-of-30 passes for 282 yards and two touchdowns in the Vikings' 30-23, Thanksgiving win over the Lions, adding a nine-yard rushing score.

Keenum came out smoking, relentlessly targeting Adam Thielen while finding Kyle Rudolph for a pair of first half scores. Touchdown No. 2 was one of the best throws of Keenum's career. With a free rusher closing in, Keenum delivered a perfect, 22-yard rainbow to Rudolph in the end zone. The game manager has now generated multiple scores in three of his past four starts, and is playing genuinely solid football. He'll have to keep doing so to avoid Teddy Bridgewater being inserted under center. Keenum should be called on to throw a lot in Week 13 against the Falcons.
Nov 23 - 4:07 PM

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer confirmed Case Keenum will start Thursday against the Lions.

It was the only decision Zimmer could make after Keenum played well in a big win over the Rams on Sunday. The matchup with the Lions is not great, but Keenum has good enough weapons and has flashed a high enough ceiling to keep him in the streaming conversation.
Nov 21 - 12:29 PM

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said it would be "hard" to sit Case Keenum "right now."

The coach appeared to flirt with the idea last week, but it is impossible to imagine him doing the same following a big win against the Rams in which Keenum again played well. With the Vikings in the mix for a first-round bye, things will have to go south for us to see Teddy Bridgewater in the near future.
Nov 20 - 9:02 AM

Case Keenum completed 27-of-38 passes for 280 yards and one touchdown in the Vikings' Week 11 win over the Rams.

In a match between a pair of 7-2 teams, Keenum's Vikings came away with the convincing win over his former teammates. And Keenum was able to hold off the Teddy Bridgewater chants that had been coming from those around the league this past week. Keenum keeps doing his job and making things happen by extending plays with his legs. His touchdown was a 65-yard strike to Adam Thielen where Thielen recorded 64 yards after the catch on a horrible missed tackle. Keenum will be back under center on Thanksgiving Day against the Lions.
Nov 19 - 5:12 PM

Coach Mike Zimmer confirmed Case Keenum will start Week 11 against the Rams.

It was an obvious decision after Keenum flamed the Redskins for 304 yards and four touchdowns on the road last week. Keenum, of course, played for the Rams last season. Their defense will present a much stiffer challenge than the Redskins offered last week, but Keenum at least gets them at home. We'll undoubtedly see Teddy Bridgewater at some point this season.
Nov 15 - 12:24 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Vikings will stick with Case Keenum at quarterback for Week 11 against the Rams.

This became a question when coach Mike Zimmer was noncommittal on his Week 11 starter during Monday's press conference. Keenum has earned more rope, however, and Teddy Bridgewater's health is still uncertain coming off a devastating knee injury. We do expect to see Bridgewater play before the end of the season.
Nov 13 - 4:08 PM

Case Keenum completed 21-of-29 passes for 304 yards and four touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 10 win over Washington.

In the first game with Teddy Bridgewater active since 2015, Keenum played some of his best football of his career for nearly three quarters on Sunday. Keenum threw three first half touchdowns and then a fourth on their opening drive of the second half to put the Vikings up 35-17 in the 3rd Quarter. Keenum then threw back-to-back awful interceptions that allowed Washington to stay in the game. Minnesota has won five games in a row with Keenum being the primary quarterback, so he would be the front runner to start next week against the Rams, despite Teddy Bridgewater's imminent return.
Nov 12 - 5:05 PM

Case Keenum will start Week 10 against the Redskins.

Teddy Bridgewater will be activated this week, but the 6-2 Vikings are understandably taking things slowly with the quarterback coming back from an extended injury layoff. That means Keenum will start this week, and it would not be surprising if he kept the starting job for even longer. That said, Keenum is no better than a low-end play in two-quarterback formats.
Nov 7 - 12:11 PM

Case Keenum completed 27-of-43 passes for 288 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Vikings' Week 8 win over the Browns in London.

Keenum's day got off to a poor start when his fourth pass of the game was tipped into the air at the line and picked off, a turnover quickly converted into a touchdown by Cleveland. Things did not go much better the rest of the first half for Keenum, who struggled with pressure and getting passes knocked down at the line, but he did find Adam Thielen for a couple big plays including an 18-yard touchdown while rolling right near the end of the second quarter. He kept things going in the second half, hitting Thielen for some more big gains and finding Kyle Rudolph in the back of the end zone to ice the game in the fourth. It was a solid fantasy effort for those who streamed Keenum, but it could be the last time we see him under center for Minnesota this season with Teddy Bridgewater possibly returning after the bye. It will be a situation to monitor the next couple weeks.

Case Keenum (chest) got in a full practice Thursday.

Keenum was limited on Wednesday, but the issue never seemed serious. He will start Sunday against the Browns.
