Teddy Bridgewater completed 21-of-37 passes for 210 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception in the Vikings' Week 12 loss to the Packers.
Despite the two touchdowns, Bridgewater struggled to move the offense. He continues to be indecisive with his reads, with his interception coming on a bad underthrow to Greg Jennings. Bridgewater added five carries for 32 yards, and has shown good mobility outside of the pocket. He targeted Charles Johnson a team-high 11 times and remains limited by his supporting cast. Bridgewater will be a low-end QB2 for Week 13 against the Panthers. Nov 23 - 4:37 PM

Teddy Bridgewater completed 18-of-28 passes for 158 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in the Vikings' Week 11 loss to the Bears.

He managed nine yards on five carries. Bridgewater is small and plays small in the pocket, and got nothing going outside of dump-off completions against arguably the NFL's worst pass defense. The adverse weather conditions -- snow and bitter cold -- seemed to affect Bridgewater throughout the game, and he was indecisive with his reads. The Bears' pass rush suddenly appeared rejuvenated. Bridgewater was ineffective for the fifth consecutive game. He will be a low-end two-quarterback-league option when the Vikings take on the Packers in Week 12.
Nov 16 - 4:02 PM

Teddy Bridgewater completed 26-of-42 passes for 268 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's Week 9 win over the Redskins.

Bridgewater badly overthrew a wide open Cordarrelle Patterson early on and showed little chemistry on deep balls, but made good decisions and moved the football. He added three rushes for 20 yards. Bridgewater continues to profile as a bit of a game manager, failing to throw more than one TD pass in a game all year and averaging just 11.1 yards per completion. It keeps him as a weak QB2 as the Vikings head into their bye.
Nov 2 - 4:40 PM

Teddy Bridgewater completed 24-of-42 passes for 241 yards and a touchdown and rushed once for three yards in the Vikings' Week 8 win over the Bucs.

The Vikings' was generally stagnant until Jerick McKinnon broke off a 28-yard run in the third quarter, setting up Bridgewater's 17-yard touchdown throw to Greg Jennings. Despite all of the hype, Bridgewater is a smallish, relatively weak-armed passer whose rushing usage has been inconsistent so far. He's just a low-upside fantasy QB2 heading into a Week 9 date with Washington.
Oct 26 - 5:14 PM

Teddy Bridgewater completed 15-of-26 passes for 157 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 7 loss to the Bills.

Bridgewater was sacked five times behind a Vikings offensive line that lost starting C John Sullivan and RG Vlad Ducasse to injuries. His biggest play was a 38-yard completion to Greg Jennings in the first half, with his touchdown coming on a four-yard bubble screen to Cordarrelle Patterson on the same drive. Bridgewater's fantasy upside is limited by his supporting cast and the Vikings pass protection issues. He'll have a chance to get back on track in a plus matchup against the Bucs in Week 8.

Teddy Bridgewater wants to work on getting rid of the ball faster.

It's understandable after Bridgewater got battered for eight sacks in Sunday's dispiriting loss to the Lions. According to Pro Football Focus, Bridgewater has taken an average of 2.53 seconds to get rid of the ball, the ninth slowest mark in the league. It's hardly an unforgivable number, but Bridgewater needs to be faster as teams tee off on the Vikings' shoddy offensive line.
Oct 14 - 1:21 PM

Teddy Bridgewater completed 23-of-37 passes for 188 yards and three interceptions against the Lions Week 6.

Bridgewater threw a terrible pick in the end zone after the Vikings marched down the field on the first drive of the game, and had two more passes intercepted off deflections. Bridgewater was also stripped, though the Vikings recovered. It was a poor game for the rookie, but he was under siege all day. The Lions hit Bridgewater seven times and sacked him four times. Bridgewater could become a streaming option later in the year, but the Vikings need to find a way to protect him first.
Oct 12 - 4:45 PM

Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) is practicing in full for Week 6.

He's ready to rock against the Lions, though Detroit's elite defense is an extremely poor matchup for a quarterback making just his second-career start. Bridgewater should come into legitimate streaming value this season, but he's not a recommended QB2 for Week 6.
Oct 9 - 5:45 PM

Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) said he's 100 percent healthy.

Bridgewater suffered a minor sprain. He likely would have played last week if the Vikings hadn't been on a short week and playing on Thursday night. Coach Mike Zimmer fully expects Bridgewater to play Sunday against the Lions. It'll be a nice test after he led the offense through Atlanta's Swiss-cheese defense in Week 4.
Oct 8 - 12:45 PM

Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) returned to practice Tuesday.

For what it's worth, coach Mike Zimmer officially characterized Bridgewater as "DNP." The Vikings don't have to officially update Bridgewater's status until Wednesday. Bridgewater's ankle sprain was never considered very severe. If the Vikings didn't have a Thursday game last week, there's a good chance they could have avoided the Christian Ponder meltdown. Teddy should be ready to go as a low-end QB2 for a tough matchup against the Lions Sunday.
Oct 7 - 12:23 PM

Vikings declared QB Teddy Bridgewater inactive for Week 5 against the Packers.

Christian Ponder will get the start. Playing on a short week on the road in what are expected to be rainy conditions, Ponder is Rotoworld's No. 30 quarterback for Week 5. Also inactive for the Vikings are WLB Chad Greenway, LB Brandon Watts, OG David Yankey, OG Austin Wentworth, TE Kyle Rudolph and DE Scott Crichton. Bridgewater is fully expected back for Week 6. Greenway is week to week.
Oct 2 - 7:01 PM's Ian Rapoport reports Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) will be inactive for Week 5 against the Packers.

This became obvious after the Vikings promoted Chandler Harnish from the practice squad. It means Christian Ponder will become the third Vikings quarterback to start a game this season. It bears repeating that it's Week 5. Ponder will be Rotoworld's No. 30 quarterback for Week 5. Bridgewater almost certainly would have started were the game not on a short week. He's expected back under center in Week 6 against the Lions.
Oct 2 - 5:37 PM

According to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, "signs seem to be pointing" toward Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) starting Thursday's game against the Packers.

However, shortly after Chris Tomasson's report, Chandler Harnish was promoted from the practice squad. It's a sign Bridgewater will be inactive or limited to No. 2 duties behind Christian Ponder. Bridgewater would be demonstrating his toughness by playing, but suiting up at less than 100 percent in a short week on the road is not a recipe for fantasy success. Bridgewater won't be an advisable start in two-QB leagues if he gets the call against the Packers.
Oct 2 - 4:22 PM

The Vikings plan to take the Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) decision right up until 90 minutes before Thursday's kickoff.

"Teddy Bridgewater still wants to play," but the Vikings want "to make sure it limits danger," according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Teddy is fighting a garden-variety ankle sprain sustained just four days ago. If there's any danger of making it worse at all, the Vikings should play it safe with the new face of their franchise. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier signs point to Bridgewater sitting out this difficult spot at Lambeau.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, signs point to Teddy Bridgewater (ankle) sitting out Thursday night's game at Green Bay.

The short week isn't doing Bridgewater any favors after his ankle awkwardly got bent just four days ago. Nothing is official yet, but it looks like Christian Ponder is going to get the nod here (Matt Cassel is on injured reserve). That would make the Packers D/ST a very attractive streamer, as Ponder has no shot in Lambeau on two days of practice. In nine games last year, Ponder went 2-6-1 while throwing nine interceptions, fumbling seven times and taking 27 sacks.
