Keenum completed 28 of 48 pass attempts for 271 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's 38-7 loss to the Eagles. Keenum struggled for much of the afternoon, completing just 58 percent of his passes for 5.6 yards per attempt. He threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Kyle Rudolph on the opening drive of the game, but he thew a pick-six later in the quarter and was intercepted again on the final possession, with the game already out of hand. Keenum put together a strong regular season, setting career highs in every single offensive category, and came within a game of leading his team to the Super Bowl. Those things should play up his value on the free-agent market, and it remains to be seen of the Vikings elect to bring him back after his breakout campaign.
Keenum completed 25 of 40 passes for 318 yards, one touchdown and one interception during Sunday's 29-24 NFC divisional-round victory over the Saints. Keenum marched the Vikings' offense up and down the field throughout the first two quarters of play, setting up both Latavius Murray and Jerick McKinnon for rushing touchdowns to put Minnesota up 17-0 at half. However, the Saints' defense tightened up thereafter and Keenum couldn't get much of anything going before hitting Stefon Diggs for a 61-yard, game-winning touchdown as time expired. While it wasn't a huge statistical outing for the quarterback -- especially since the bulk of his fantasy production came on the last play of regulation -- Keenum did just enough to advance his team to next weekend's NFC championship game against the top-seeded Eagles. DFS owners considering the 29-year-old quarterback should keep in mind that Philadelphia boasted one of the NFL's best defenses during the regular season, allowing just 3.8 yards per rush (sixth lowest) and 6.5 yards per pass attempt (third lowest).
Keenum was 21-of-29 passing for 189 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in Sunday's win over Chicago. Keenum didn't need to do too much in the passing game after the Vikings got an early lead, but he was efficient as usual with a 101.1 passer rating. He'll try to keep his unexpected breakout season going at home in the playoffs after a bye.
Keenum completed 20 of 23 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns while adding a 20-yard rush in Sunday's 34-7 victory over the Bengals. Keenum was accurate and efficient, misfiring on just three passes while throwing touchdown passes from 20 yards and one yard out to Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph, respectively. He was replaced by Teddy Bridgewater after the Rudolph score gave Minnesota a 34-0 lead, but there's no quarterback controversy here. Any inkling of such a narrative was put to rest when Bridgewater promptly threw an interception on his first passing attempt.
Keenum completed 27 of 44 passes for 280 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's 31-24 loss to Carolina. He also scrambled five times for 40 yards and lost a fumble. While Keenum was picked off on a deep ball intended for Adam Thielen on the opening drive, he made amends with an 18-yard touchdown pass to tight end Kyle Rudolph on the next possession. The quarterback threw another interception while targeting Stefon Diggs in the fourth quarter, but looked Thielen's way with more success on a 52-yard touchdown on the next drive and added a successful two-point conversion to Blake Bell. While a late winning drive by Carolina ended up rendering Minnesota's comeback moot, Keenum once again provided a serviceable fantasy performance despite the mistake-filled effort.
