Vikings' David Morgan: Hurts knee in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morgan left Sunday's game with a knee injury, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Morgan shone as a receiver in the preseason, but he hasn't been a factor in the regular season. He played an average of 18.5 snaps on offense the first two weeks, so he'll have a small role as a blocker.

Vikings' Blair Walsh: Misses another extra point attempt
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Walsh made both field-goal attempts, from 31 and 28 yards, but missed his only extra-point attempt Sunday.

Walsh continues to be inconsistent from shorter distances this season as he's missed two extra-point attempts and a 37-yard field-goal attempt. However, there are no signs the Vikings are considering a change at kicker.

Vikings' Jerick McKinnon: Gets majority of Vikings carries in Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon led the Vikings with 16 carries for 45 yards, and added a two-yard catch on three targets Sunday in Carolina.

McKinnon posted an unimpressive average of 2.8 yards per carry, but did get 16 attempts while supposed starter Matt Asiata got only six. If the 2014 third-rounder continues to see the majority of work in Adrian Peterson's (knee) extended absence, his career 4.9 yards per carry make him a very intriguing fantasy option moving forward. He's also a solid receiver out of the backfield, as illustrated by his 48 receptions in a limited role through two NFL seasons.

Vikings' Sam Bradford: Throws for just 171 yards in win at Carolina
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bradford struggled in Sunday's win at Carolina, completing 18 of 28 passes for just 171 yards and one touchdown.

Bradford and the entire Vikings offense struggled to move the ball in their first game without Adrian Peterson (knee), but a strong performance by the defense and special teams led them to victory anyway. He's not being asked to shoulder a heavy load, but does look to have a decent rapport with tight end Kyle Rudolph and top wideout Stephon Diggs. While the 2010 first overall pick won't turn it over much, he probably isn't going to rack up significant yardage most weeks, either.

Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Scores for second straight week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudolph (groin) led the Vikings with seven catches for 70 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 22-10 upset win at Carolina.

Rudolph has been a major part of Minnesota's offense through three weeks, with 14 catches on 26 targets. He has found the end zone in both of quarterback Sam Bradford's starts, and should continue to see plenty of red zone looks as the Vikings will likely opt to pass more in that area during running back Adrian Peterson's (knee) absence. The tight end was able to muster this solid line despite Bradford throwing for just 171 yards, showing that he can excel in any environment.
