  • Vikings' Chad Beebe: Moves to IR

    Beebe (foot) reverted to the Vikings' injured reserve Wednesday.

    Beebe will require surgery to address a left foot injury, a development that prompted the Vikings to waive him Tuesday with an injury designation. Once the procedure is behind him, he'll focus on his recovery, which is expected to last a number of months, per Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com. With Beebe sidelined, Minnesota will entrust sporadic No. 3 wideout reps to K.J. Osborn, Dede Westbrook (knee), Ihmir Smith-Marsette and Dan Chisena.

  • Chad Beebe: Cut with injury designation

    Beebe (foot) was waived/injured by the Vikings on Tuesday.

    Assuming he clears waivers, Beebe will revert to injured reserve, which is where he'll reside for the next few months following an upcoming surgery on his foot. The Vikings will rely on some combination of Ihmir Smith-Marsette, Dede Westbrook and K.J. Osborn to cover the No. 3 receiver spot behind Justin Jefferson (shoulder) and Adam Thielen (thigh).

  • Vikings' Chad Beebe: Needs surgery on foot

    Beebe needs to undergo surgery on his left foot and will be sidelined for several months, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

    Beebe was competing with Ihmir Smith-Marsette and K.J. Osborn as a fringe wideout with returner capabilities, but his latest injury will most likely end the competition. The 27-year-old appeared in 14 contests with the Vikings last year, catching 20 passes for 201 yards and two touchdowns.

  • Vikings' Chad Beebe: Gets time with first-team offense

    Beebe had two receptions for 23 yards in Friday's preseason loss at Kansas City.

    Beebe appeared to have fallen behind in the competition for the third receiver role with K.J. Osborn having a strong preseason. However, it was Beebe getting time with the first-team offense Friday. A St. Paul Pioneer Press report on Thursday also speculated Beebe may be the leading third-receiver candidate as well. Nevertheless, Dede Westbrook (knee) ultimately may win the No. 3 job when he gains full clearance from the torn ACL he sustained in 2020. The third receiver role for the Vikings could be in flux early in the regular season and we may not know who will get the most snaps before a Week 1 matchup against the Bengals.

  • Vikings' Chad Beebe: Shows spark Saturday

    Beebe had two receptions on four targets for 47 yards in Saturday's preseason loss to Indianapolis.

    Beebe appears to have fallen behind in the competition for the third receiver role with K.J. Osborn seen having a strong training camp and getting work with the starting offense Saturday over Beebe. The third receiver role remains uncertain, as Dede Westbrook (knee) may ultimately win the job when he gains full clearance from the torn ACL he sustained in 2020. Still, Beebe's strong showing Saturday will keep him in the mix.

  • Vikings' Chad Beebe: Competing for No. 3 role

    Coach Mike Zimmer said Beebe has done a nice job competing for the No. 3 receiver role in training camp, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Beebe is the incumbent, but that isn't necessarily a big advantage after he caught only 20 passes for 201 yards and two TDs in 14 games last season. Granted, he played only 314 snaps, with Minnesota using 11 personnel on a league-low 29 percent of plays. The team could use more three-wide sets after losing Kyle Rudolph in the offseason, though backup TE Tyler Conklin filled in capably last year. Beebe is competing with Dede Westbrook and fifth-round rookie Ihmir Smith-Marsette, while Bisi Johnson bowed out of the competition with an ACL tear at the end of July.

  • Vikings' Chad Beebe: Pens minimum deal

    Beebe re-signed Wednesday with the Vikings on a one-year, $920,000 contract, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Beebe would have been owed $2.1 million had the Vikings tendered him, so the team will save over $1 million against the cap by getting him back on a minimum deal. Behind Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen, there probably isn't room for another fantasy-relevant wideout to emerge in Minnesota, but Beebe has proven to be a reliable depth piece.

  • Vikings' Chad Beebe: Won't be tendered, could re-sign

    The Vikings won't place a tender on Beebe, allowing him to hit free agency, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Beebe proved capable of significant playing time as a backup wideout in his third NFL season, and the Vikings reportedly want to bring him back in a similar role for 2021. However, the lowest possible tender Minnesota could hand Beebe would be worth $2.1 million, a price which the team evidently wants driven down. That leaves Beebe on track to hit the open market Wednesday afternoon.

  • Vikings' Chad Beebe: Becomes regular in offense

    Beebe ended the season catching 20 of 30 targets for 201 yards and two touchdowns in 14 games.

    In his third year with the Vikings, Beebe emerged as a capable backup and achieved career highs in receptions, targets, yards, touchdowns and appearances. This was the first season the 26-year-old was a regular on offense, but it remains to be seen if Minnesota will retain the upcoming restricted free agent.

  • Vikings' Chad Beebe: No targets in loss

    Beebe wasn't targeted in Friday's 52-33 loss to the Saints.

    Beebe played 36 percent of the offensive snaps, but he failed to receive a target for the fourth time this season. This offense continues to run through Dalvin Cook, Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson, so Beebe's fantasy prospects are low.

  • Vikings' Chad Beebe: Secures both targets

    Beebe caught both his targets for 21 yards during Sunday's 33-27 loss to the Bears.

    The 26-year-old operated as Minnesota's No. 3 wide receiver, but that only resulted in 20 offensive snaps Sunday. Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson should continue to dominate the production from the Vikings' wideouts.

  • Vikings' Chad Beebe: No receptions Sunday

    Beebe did not have a reception on three targets in Sunday's loss at Tampa Bay. He also returned two punts for a 7.5 yard average.

    Beebe played on 34 of the offense's 79 snaps, so he saw about his customary amount of playing time. However, he failed to make a reception for just the second time in five games. Still, he's not getting enough targets as Minnesota's slot receiver to make an impact in most fantasy formats. The majority of looks go to Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson if both are healthy. Beebe is back to returning punts after a key fumble in Week 12.

  • Vikings' Chad Beebe: Garners three targets

    Beebe caught two of three targets for 10 yards in Sunday's 27-24 overtime win against the Jaguars.

    After playing hero in a Week 12 win over the Panthers, Beebe reverted to his typical usage with Adam Thielen back from the COVID-19 list. He played 28 snaps on offense (31 percent) and saw a 7.5 percent target share. Beebe's still the clear No. 3 wideout, but Kirk Cousins' narrow target tree heavily favors Thielen, Justin Jefferson and Dalvin Cook.
