    Vikings' Rhett Ellison: Catches first TD

    Ellison had two receptions for 18 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown, in Sunday's win at Oakland. Ellison has become a larger part of the passing game the last four weeks with five receptions and seven targets, but that's not enough for viable fantasy value in most formats.

    Cordarrelle Patterson does little for the Vikings Week 12

    Vikings wideout Cordarrelle Patterson did little Week 12 against the Packers. Patterson finished with two catches for 18 yards during the contest. He dealt with ankle and knee issues throughout the game. Patterson left twice due to injury, but was able to return both times. The rest of the team's backup pass catchers failed to do much as well. Rhett Ellison caught two passes for 11 yards. Chase Ford had just one catch, but gained 13 yards. They'll look for more Week 13 against the Panthers.

    Vikings backup pass catchers don't do much Week 11

    The Vikings backup pass catchers didn't do much Week 11 against the Bears. Rhett Ellison caught just one ball, though he did make it count. In the first quarter, Ellison hauled in a 7 yard touchdown pass from Teddy Bridgewater. He did not factor into the game after that play. Greg Jennings also had one catch, gaining 4 yards. He left the game early due to an injury. Chase Ford also gained 4 yards on his only catch. The three will look for more Week 12 against the Packers.

    Who was Teddy Bridgewater throwing to?

    Teddy Bridgewater did not elicit as much excitement coming out of college as his fellow draft peers, and his NFL debut Sunday against the Saints reflected that. While Blake Bortles was tossing two touchdowns -- and two interceptions -- and Johnny Manziel was being used as a wide receiver on trick plays, Bridgewater came in did a solid, unspectacular job for the Vikings after Matt Cassel's injury Sunday. Bridgewater put together a professional performance, though he didn't give the team enough to mount a comeback in the 20-9 loss. He completed 12 of 20 passes for 150 yards and added 27 on six carries, without recording a touchdown or turnover. Bridgewater was not asked to do much, but he has plenty of weapons in this Minnesota offense, so that should change moving forward as he gets more comfortable. He targeted six players Sunday, and a breakdown of that could give Fantasy owners an idea of how he might spread the ball around moving forward: Greg Jennings: six targets, four receptions; Cordarrelle Patterson: three targets, three receptions; Jerick McKinnon: five targets, two receptions; Matt Asiata: four targets, two receptions; Kyle Rudolph: one target, one reception; Rhett Ellison: one target, no receptions
