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:
The Vikings host the Falcons in Week 4.
The Vikings have deactivated Adrian Peterson after details of an indictment for child abuse surfaced Friday. Asiata is expected to start Week 2. McKinnon is expected to serve as his backup.
Everyone knows that the
McKinnon didn't do a lot of that in college at Georgia Southern but looked great running routes and showing off nice hands during OTAs and minicamp. McKinnon's usage will depend on a number of factors, including how often the team will want to spell Peterson. There's also a chance, per the paper, that McKinnon and Peterson could be on the field at the same time.
