  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Catches both targets in loss

    Ham caught both of his targets for 13 yards during Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Rams.

    Ham was dealing with a hamstring injury during the week, but he was ultimately active for the contest and was able to play 36 total snaps (20 on offense). On the season, the fullback has totaled 15 catches for 117 yards, but he'll likely remain a fantasy afterthought during Minnesota's divisional showdown with the Packers in Week 17.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Active for Week 16

    Ham (hamstring) is active for Sunday's contest against the Rams.

    Ham tweaked his hamstring during the Vikings' win over the Bears on Monday Night Football, but he is ready to go for Week 16. The fullback doesn't garner much fantasy consideration, but his presence should be a boost to a Minnesota run game that will rely heavily on Alexander Mattison with Dalvin Cook sidelined due to COVID-19 protocols.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Dealing with hamstring issue

    Ham is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams due to a hamstring injury, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Ham presumably picked up the injury last week against the Bears while catching one pass for three yards on 25 offensive snaps. The Vikings will work without a fullback this weekend if he's unable to play.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Catches lone target

    Ham had a 19-yard reception on his lone target during Sunday's 29-27 loss to the Lions.

    Ham played 25 of 76 offensive snaps and took advantage of his lone touch by rumbling 19 yards during the third quarter. The 28-year-old has seven carries for 34 yards and 12 receptions for 101 yards through 12 games this season, and he doesn't offer any fantasy appeal as a fullback.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Has 30 yards rushing

    Ham had one carry for 30 yards in Sunday's win at Carolina.

    It was just Ham's fifth carry on the season and the second longest run of his career. Ham is almost strictly a blocking fullback in Minnesota's offense, so don't expect many more touches, even with Sunday's success.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Two receptions Sunday

    Ham had two receptions on two targets for nine yards in Sunday's overtime loss at Cincinnati.

    Ham played 25 snaps on offense, but he blocked on all but nine of them. He's primarily a blocking fullback and has minimal role on offense aside from a few receptions and an occasional goal-line carry.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Minimal role in 2020

    Ham ended his season rushing five times for 18 yards and catching eight of his 13 targets for 97 yards and one touchdown in 15 games.

    In his fourth season with the Vikings, Ham again had a quiet year paving the way for Dalvin Cook and his primary backup Alexander Mattison. After playing a career-high 404 offensive snaps, the 27-year-old fullback will continue in that role as he's signed through 2023.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Gains Week 17 clearance

    Ham (quadriceps) was a full practice participant Friday, and he carries no injury designation into Sunday's game at Detroit.

    Ham was never able to reach full participation in practice last week, contributing a limited session Thursday before being tagged as questionable and subsequently ruled out for a Christmas Day loss to New Orleans. The 2019 Pro Bowl fullback is now clear for Minnesota's season finale against the Lions, an appearance that will mark Ham's 15th of the campaign.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Limited at Thursday's practice

    The Vikings listed Ham (quadriceps) as a limited participant at Thursday's practice.

    Ham managed only one limited practice last week before being made inactive for the Vikings' Christmas Day loss to the Saints, so he's already taken a step forward by turning in two limited sessions to kick of Week 17. The fullback may still need to practice in full capacity Friday to approach Sunday's season finale in Detroit without an injury designation.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Officially inactive

    Ham (quadriceps) is inactive for Friday's contest against New Orleans.

    Ham logged a limited practice Thursday, but that proved to be inadequate for him to suit up on Christmas Day. Jake Bargas, who was promoted from the practice squad Thursday, will receive the start at fullback in Ham's place.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Questionable for Friday

    Ham (quadriceps) is listed as questionable for Friday's Christmas Day matchup against New Orleans.

    Ham practiced in limited fashion Thursday after logging DNPs on both Tuesday and Wednesday, giving him a chance to suit up Friday. Though he has logged only five carries and six catches this season, Ham's absence could impact the performance of Dalvin Cook, as Ham is an important part of Minnesota's blocking scheme.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Misses another practice

    Ham (quadriceps) did not practice Wednesday.

    Ham has now missed back-to-back practices, putting his status for Christmas Day's game against the Saints in legitimate jeopardy. If he's unable to play Friday, the Vikings' blocking scheme will suffer a downgrade, which could impact the ceiling of Dalvin Cook.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Season-high playing time Sunday

    Ham had three receptions for 22 yards and one carry for zero yards in Sunday's loss at Tampa Bay.

    Ham played a season-high 40 snaps on offense as he likely got more playing time with tight end Kyle Rudolph (foot) sidelined. Ham is almost exclusively used as a blocker, so this may be his ceiling in touches, though he can get an occasional red-zone carry.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Finds end zone in win

    Ham caught a 12-yard touchdown pass in Sunday's 27-24 overtime win against the Jaguars.

    Ham scored his first touchdown since Week 7 of the 2019 season. The 27-year-old fullback continues to log high snap counts, as he's played at least 20 snaps on offense in each game since the Week 7 bye. He mostly contributes in a blocking role.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Back from COVID list

    Ham (undisclosed) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday.

    Ham is back after a brief stint on the COVID-19 list and should resume his role as the lead blocker for Dalvin Cook.
