Until Chad Beebe finds meaningful statistics on a regular basis, Fantasy managers shouldn't bother adding him to rosters.
Offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski said Wednesday that Beebe is "making a name for himself" this offseason, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "I will give the kid credit, he comes out here and he works," Stefanski said. Beebe seems to be firmly in the mix for the No. 3 receiver job and punt-returning duties heading into training camp, with the Vikings giving him good looks in both roles during OTAs and minicamp. The 25-year-old caught just four passes for 39 yards last season in his three appearances in 2018.
Beebe is the early frontrunner for Minnesota's punt-return job, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Beebe has made a strong impressions during OTAs and is in the mix to win the third-receiver role. Winning the return job would be another way for him to earn a spot on the final roster.
Beebe saw reps with the Vikings' first-team offense during Wednesday's practice, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Beebe looks to be back in order after dealing with a hamstring injury that pestered him throughout the 2018 season. His standing with the first-team offense means little at this stage in the offseason -- especially without Stefon Diggs in attendance -- but Beebe at least seems to be in the mix for the No. 3 job behind Diggs and Adam Thielen.
Beebe (hamstring) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears. Beebe will miss his fifth game of the year due to a lingering hamstring issue, despite having been able to play through the injury during last week's win over the Lions. Laquon Treadwell and Aldrick Robinson should receive increased looks as long as Beebe remains sidelined.
Beebe (hamstring) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Lions, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Beebe has missed the last four games with the lingering hamstring issue but is all set to go for Week 16. The 24-year-old saw 13 and 29 offensive snaps in his two games on the team prior to the injury, and he could see a similar workload at Detroit on Sunday.
