Teddy Bridgewater completed 25-of-37 passes for 296 yards and a touchdown Week 11 against the Packers.
He added four rushes for 43 yards including two impressive escapes to convert third downs. Bridgewater took a beating in this game, taking six sacks and briefly leaving the game with a shoulder injury late in the second quarter. The pressure cost him at least one touchdown as he underthrew a wide open Kyle Rudolph in the second half after taking a big hit. Bridgewater did make some nice throws in this game including one to Rudolph down the seam on a third-quarter touchdown drive. His score also went to Rudolph, who out-muscled Micah Hyde for a floated pass before out running him down the sideline for a 47-yard score. Despite the positive game, Bridgewater again failed to throw for more than one touchdown, and this was only the third 20-point fantasy game of his career. He will not be a starting option against the Falcons' underrated defense next week. Nov 22 - 8:04 PM

Teddy Bridgewater (shoulder) is listed on the Week 11 injury report, but is practicing in full.

The injury won't impact his status for Sunday. Bridgewater is a mid-range QB2 in a pivotal division game against the Packers.
Nov 18 - 5:17 PM

Teddy Bridgewater completed 14-of-22 passes for 140 yards and one touchdown and ran twice for 23 yards in the Vikings' Week 10 win over the Raiders.

Bridgewater didn’t have much to do on Sunday. He pretty much handed the ball to Adrian Peterson and let him do the rest. The noodle-armed Bridgewater continues to struggle on deep passes though his short and intermediate throws Sunday were mostly on point. He gave the few fantasy owners who were brave enough to start him a little treat with a nice 18-yard scramble to end the third quarter. Just a week removed from his concussion, Bridgewater looked noticeably gun shy on Sunday. A game-manager through and through, Bridgewater will be nothing more than a mid-range QB2 next time out against the Packers.
Nov 15 - 8:09 PM

Teddy Bridgewater is active for Week 10 against the Raiders.

Bridgewater suffered a concussion last week against the Rams but had no trouble passing the league's protocol. He returned to a full practice on Thursday. Bridgewater's main job is to get the ball to Adrian Peterson and avoid mistakes. He's just a QB2 this week.
Nov 15 - 3:05 PM

Teddy Bridgewater (questionable, concussion) has been cleared for Week 10.

Bridgewater passed the final stage of his concussion protocol. He was expected to start after practicing fully on Friday. Despite a plus matchup with Oakland, Bridgewater isn’t more than a low-end streaming option.
Nov 14 - 5:36 PM

Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) is listed as questionable for Week 10 against the Raiders, but he is expected to play.

He got in a full practice Friday. Coach Mike Zimmer has already said he has "no doubt" Bridgewater will start this week. Bridgewater has a great matchup against the Raiders, but he has thrown for more than one touchdown just once this season and has three games with zero passing touchdowns. There are better streaming options.
Nov 13 - 1:52 PM

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said he has "no doubt" Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) will start Week 10 against the Raiders.

Bridgewater has yet to gain final clearance, but Zimmer is confident it's coming. Bridgewater was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice. Even in a plum matchup with the Raiders, Bridgewater will be a mere QB2 if he suits up.
Nov 12 - 4:28 PM

Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) practiced for the second straight day on Thursday.

Bridgewater will likely remain "limited" on the injury report, but barring a setback, he's going to be under center against the Raiders. It's a great matchup for the sophomore signal caller, but Bridgewater has flashed little fantasy upside this season. He's a low-end QB2 for Week 10.
Nov 12 - 2:50 PM

Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) was cleared to practice Wednesday and is expected to play Week 10 against the Raiders.

Bridgewater took a shoulder-to-helmet hit last Sunday against the Rams but quickly progressed through the league's protocol. He'll be on the two-quarterback-league radar in a plus matchup on the road against Oakland.
Nov 11 - 3:00 PM

The Vikings expect Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) to be cleared for Sunday's game against the Raiders.

Bridgewater has already passed his first test. It's encouraging news, but he's still less than 24 hours removed from suffering a brain injury. The Vikings are unlikely to know his status for certain before Friday. Bridgewater will be an intriguing QB2 against the Raiders' shoddy pass defense if he can take the field.
Nov 9 - 3:07 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Teddy Bridgewater (concussion) "is feeling much better" Monday morning.

Bridgewater is reporting to the Vikings' facility. Bridgewater took an illegal hit from Lamarcus Joyner at the end of a fourth-quarter scramble Sunday. He was clearly dazed after the hit and was diagnosed with a concussion in the locker room. Shaun Hill will start against the Raiders next week if Bridgewater is not cleared.
Nov 9 - 10:00 AM

Teddy Bridgewater exited Week 9 against the Rams with a concussion.

On an early fourth-quarter scramble, Bridgewater gave himself up with a feet-first slide. Rams slot CB Lamarcus Joyner then came in with a late hit, drilling Bridgewater in the face with his shoulder, drawing a 15-yard penalty. Bridgewater was clearly dazed on the hit, went to the sideline, before eventually heading to the locker room. Before exiting, Bridgewater was 13-of-21 for 144 yards and an interception. He also rushed for 17 yards, one score, and a two-point conversion. Veteran Shaun Hill is now in the game at quarterback.
Nov 8 - 3:39 PM

Teddy Bridgewater completed 17-of-30 passes for 187 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Vikings' Week 8 win over the Bears.

He added 21 rushing yards. Bridgewater had a miserable game, most notably missing a wide-open Mike Wallace for a would-be touchdown bomb and often appearing physically overmatched in the pocket. Teddy and Stefon Diggs made plays at critical fourth-quarter moments, however, as Bridgewater connected with Diggs for a 20-yard pickup and a 40-yard score where Diggs piled up RAC to tie the ballgame, before Blair Walsh hit the game-winning field goal. The Vikings get a tougher challenge next week against the Rams' dominant defense. Bridgewater is a low-end QB2 in fantasy.
Nov 1 - 4:07 PM

Teddy Bridgewater completed 25-of-35 passes for 316 yards and two touchdowns in the Vikings' Week 7 win over the Lions.

He took four sacks and scrambled three times for one yard. With the Vikings' running game largely not working against the Lions -- save a 75-yard by Adrian Peterson -- Minnesota's offense needed its passing attack to move the chains. Bridgewater started the season painfully slow, but his outlook is improving with Stefon Diggs (6-108-1) emerging as a bonafide playmaker. Bridgewater will be a high-end streamer against the Bears' leaky pass defense in Week 8.
Oct 25 - 4:40 PM

Teddy Bridgewater completed 17-of-31 passes for 249 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Vikings' Week 6 win over the Chiefs.

Bridgewater's touchdown was a four-yard pass to Kyle Rudolph. He had a couple big downfield plays to Stefon Diggs and Jarius Wright, but mostly struggled to move the offense. Both of Bridgewater's interceptions were bad decisions, including one in the end-zone. Bridgewater will be a low-end QB2 against the Lions in Week 7.
