Vikings' Sharrif Floyd: Expected to begin 2017 on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Floyd (knee) is expected to start the 2017 season on the physically unable to perform list, Matt Vensel of The Star Tribune reports.

Floyd -- who's making slow and steady progress in his recovery from nerve damage suffered during September knee surgery -- missed out on the entirety of the Vikings' offseason program and seemingly has little to no chance of making it back for any point of training camp or preseason. Although him landing on the PUP list is currently the expectation, he could ultimately land on injured reserve if Minnesota management isn't optimistic about his progress after the season's first six weeks.

Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Will start this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hunter will start at left defensive end this season, Matt Vensel of Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Hunter had a breakout campaign last season, racking up 12.5 sacks as a reserve lineman. Veteran Brian Robison noted the 22-year-old's success, giving his starting spot on the depth chart to Hunter. He is expected to play in at least 80 percent of the defensive snaps this season after only playing in 57 percent of the snaps last season. His new role makes Hunter an intriguing option in IDP formats, but he'll have to prove his numbers last season were no fluke.

Vikings' Teddy Bridgewater: Return this season not ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bridgewater (knee) stands a chance of being cleared to return at some point during the upcoming season, Matt Vensel of the Star Tribune reports.

Bridgewater still has a long way to go to return from last year's catastrophic knee injury, but him being cleared to throw passes to teammates and participate in individual drills has encouraged many with his progress. While he still can't go through team drills, run full speed, plant or cut on his left leg, or absorb contract to his knee, Bridgewater's 2017 campaign hasn't been written off yet. Without a timetable for Bridgewater's return, though, Sam Bradford will remain Minnesota's starter for the foreseeable future.

Vikings' Laquon Treadwell: Entrenched in third receiver role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell occupied the Vikings' No. 3 wideout position during each of the six offseason practices open to the media, Matt Vensel of the Star Tribune reports.

Treadwell, the 23rd overall pick of last year's draft, endured a lousy rookie campaign that included merely one catch on three targets for 15 yards. While his production was almost nonexistent, Treadwell did deal with foot and ankle ailments throughout the year, limiting him to nine games played. Now healthy, the 22-year-old's improved understanding of the Vikings offense has allowed him to move into third on the depth chart behind Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen. Should Treadwell retain that role, he'd figure to have ample opportunities to improve his fantasy stock drastically, particularly if Michael Floyd's legal situation impacts his availability.

Vikings' Latavius Murray: Expected back for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray (ankle) should be healed for the start of training camp, Matthew Coller of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities reports.

Murray underwent surgery to remove bone spurs from his ankle shortly after signing a three-year contract with the Vikings in March. Since then, Minnesota drafted the electrifying Dalvin Cook in the second round, which, along with Jerick McKinnon, gives Murray considerable competition for snaps this season. Fortunately for him, Murray is expected to return for training camp, when his work in the film room thus far should allow him to join his teammates on the field without feeling far behind.
