Who was Teddy Bridgewater throwing to?
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

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

Jerick McKinnon not a big factor
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Vikings running back Jerick McKinnon spelled starter Matt Asiata occasionally Week 3 at New Orleans but again didn't make a big contribution statistically. Most impressively, his five targets tied for third most on the team, but he caught just two passes for 9 yards. He also ran twice for minus-1.

The Vikings host the Falcons in Week 4.

Jerick McKinnon contributes little in loss
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Vikings rookie running back Jerick McKinnon had 7 yards on two carries and 5 yards on two catches in the team's 30-7 loss to the Patriots in Week 2. McKinnon played sparingly as Matt Asiata started for the Vikings and handled the majority of the work. The Vikings play at the Saints in Week 3.

Matt Asiata, Jerick McKinnon to see more reps Sunday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Vikings running back Matt Asiata and Jerick McKinnon will receive the bulk of the reps Week 2 against the Patriots.

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.

How much can Jerick McKinnon contribute in 2014?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Everyone knows that the Vikings' run game will revolve around Adrian Peterson. But the Minneapolis Star Tribune writes that rookie Jerick McKinnon will compete for playing time in camp this summer, likely as a pass-catching running back. 

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.
