Laquon Treadwell caught 3-of-4 targets for 28 yards in the Vikings' Week 7 win over the Ravens.

Even with Michael Floyd and Stefon Diggs on the shelf, Treadwell couldn't make a dent with Case Keenum passing for 181 yards. Treadwell got out-produced by Jarius Wright (3/54/0) and continues to look like a first-round draft bust.

Jarius Wright caught 3-of-4 targets for 54 yards in the Vikings' Week 7 win over the Ravens.

Wright operated as the Vikings' No. 3 wideout with Stefon Diggs and Michael Floyd on the shelf and led the team in receiving yards. He can be a useful rotational player coming off the bench, but Wright carries no fantasy value.
Oct 22 - 5:23 PM

Case Keenum completed 20-of-31 passes for 188 yards and an interception in the Vikings' Week 7 win over the Ravens.

It was an abysmal day for Minnesota's passing game as a whole; they got the win on the back of their defense and Latavius Murray's surprise breakthrough game. Keenum struggles with accuracy, and he was missing Stefon Diggs and Michael Floyd in this game. Keenum will be a better two-quarterback-league play in Week 8 against the Browns.
Oct 22 - 4:12 PM

Kyle Rudolph caught 5-of-7 targets for 43 yards in the Vikings' Week 7 win over the Ravens.

He finished second on the team in targets behind Adam Thielen, who drew 12. After a painfully slow start to the year, Rudolph has come alive with five or more catches in three straight games. Despite Case Keenum's inaccuracy, Rudolph will remain a solid low-end TE1 play in Week 8 against Cleveland.
Oct 22 - 4:06 PM

Jerick McKinnon rushed 14 times for 47 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 10 yards in the Vikings' Week 7 win over the Ravens.

Latavius Murray was the hero in this one with an 18-113-1 rushing line. McKinnon still logged 17 touches, and his role won't diminish as the Vikings' primary passing-game back and committee rushing partner with Murray. Although McKinnon was never going to sustain the production he put into the box score in Weeks 5-6, he will remain a viable RB2/flex play in Week 8 against the Browns.
Oct 22 - 4:04 PM

Adam Thielen caught 5-of-12 targets for 41 yards in the Vikings' Week 7 win over the Ravens.

A combination of Case Keenum's inaccuracy and good defense by the Ravens contributed to Thielen's off day despite heavy volume. Kyle Rudolph finished second on the Vikings in targets but had only seven. Expect Thielen to bounce back with a far more efficient Week 8 game against the Browns, who have allowed the most fantasy points in the league to slot receivers this season.
Oct 22 - 4:01 PM

Latavius Murray rushed 18 times for 113 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings' Week 7 win over the Ravens.

He wasn't used in the passing game, but Murray did out-touch Jerick McKinnon 18 to 17 in a game where Minnesota's rushing attack imposed its will on the Ravens' overrated run defense. Murray broke off chunk yardage in addition to big gains, ripping a 35-yarder and a 31-yard score. Murray's lack of receiving value hurts his weekly floor, but he now looks like a viable flex play ahead of a Week 8 date with the Browns. This is still going to be a timeshare backfield going forward.

Vikings declared WR Stefon Diggs, WR Michael Floyd, CB Mackensie Alexander, OL Nick Easton, QB Sam Bradford, OL Aviante Collins, and DE Tashaun Bower inactive for Week 7 against Baltimore.

Diggs' groin injury has now cost him the better part of three games. Adam Thielen and Kyle Rudolph project as target monsters on Sunday against the Ravens.
Oct 22 - 11:55 AM

Vikings LT Riley Reiff (ankle) is questionable for Week 7 against the Ravens.

Reiff was added to the report as limited on Friday, suggesting the injury happened during practice. Late-week additions are always cause for concern, although it is possible the Vikings are just being cautious. Rashod Hill would likely get the start if Reiff is forced to sit.
Oct 20 - 6:10 PM

Michael Floyd (calf) is questionable for Week 7 against the Ravens.

Floyd returned to a limited practice on Friday and expects to be in the lineup for Sunday's home game against the Ravens. Even with Stefon Diggs (groin) sidelined, Floyd won't be on the fantasy radar for Week 7.
Oct 20 - 2:19 PM

Stefon Diggs (groin) is out for Week 7 against the Ravens.

Diggs has yet to practice since tweaking his groin against the Bears in Week 5 and remains week-to-week. Adam Thielen drew a season-high 13 targets in last week's win over the Packers and should be in for another big workload on Sunday. Consider him a borderline WR1 against Baltimore.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer doesn't expect Sam Bradford (knee) to miss the rest of the season.

Bradford has missed four of the last fives games and is already ruled out for Sunday. He got Regenokine treatments for his knee this week, but remains without a timetable. The Vikings should continue to move Bradford slowly given his history of setbacks. With Teddy Bridgewater close to getting cleared, Bradford may be returning to a backup role when healthy.
Oct 20 - 2:06 PM

Sam Bradford (knee) is out for Week 7 against the Ravens.

It's no surprise as Bradford has yet to resume practicing since aggravating his bruised knee against the Bears in Week 5. Case Keenum will draw another start for the Vikes, though it may not be long before Teddy Bridgewater (knee) gets a chance under center after returning to practice earlier this week.
Oct 20 - 1:27 PM

Stefon Diggs (groin) was officially listed as "DNP" in Thursday's practice.

Diggs was out on the practice field in uniform, but apparently didn't do enough to earn a "limited" tag. Diggs' own words have suggested he won't play this week. Fantasy owners need to be making other plans.
Oct 19 - 4:25 PM

Michael Floyd (calf) remained sidelined Thursday.

It looks like Floyd is going to miss Week 7. With Stefon Diggs (groin) highly questionable, the Vikes could be severely shorthanded at wideout.
