Vikings' C.J. Ham: Two receptions Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Vikings' C.J. Ham: Could still play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ham (undisclosed) has a chance to be cleared from the reserve/COVID-19 list in time for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Ham is still on the reserve/COVID-19 list and in quarantine, but it remains possible that he could be cleared for Week 11. If he does manage to suit up versus Dallas, Ham's presence as a blocker will provide a boost for Dalvin Cook and Minnesota's rushing attack.

Vikings' C.J. Ham: Hits COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Vikings placed Ham on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday.

It's unclear whether Ham tested positive for the virus or came into close contact with an infected person. Either way, Ham will need to clear the league's protocols before he's allowed back with the team. Ham has been instrumental in creating holes for Dalvin Cook to run through this season, so if he was forced to miss Sunday's game against Dallas, it would be a slight hit to the Vikings' rushing attack.

Vikings' C.J. Ham: No touches Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ham did not have a carry or reception in Sunday's loss to Green Bay. He played on 12 of the offense's 52 snaps and stayed into block on 10 plays, according to Pro Football Focus.

Ham had a key block at the goal line which helped Dalvin Cook run for a touchdown in the first quarter. Ham will reprise his fulback role for the Vikings and will get only an occasional reception or carry. Alexander Mattison's increased usage in the passing game likely limits Ham's minimal role as a receiver.

Vikings' C.J. Ham: Signs long-term deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ham is signing a four-year, $12.25 million contract to stay with the Vikings, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

The 26-year-old fullback played 354 snaps on offense and 232 on special teams in 2019, primarily blocking for Dalvin Cook but also catching 17 of 26 targets for 149 yards and a touchdown. While he isn't necessarily dominant as a lead blocker, Ham offers versatility that helps the Vikings throw the ball with impressive efficiency from so-called running formations.

Vikings' C.J. Ham: Two receptions Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ham had two receptions for 42 yards on two targets in Monday's loss to Seattle. He also lost a fumble on a short kickoff return late in the game.

Ham's fumble sealed the win for Seattle and denied the Vikings a desperation shot to tie the game. Ham is almost exclusively used as a blocker but can get involved in the passing game occasionally, although he won't get more than a few targets per game.

Vikings' C.J. Ham: Two receptions Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ham had two receptions for 37 yards on four targets in Sunday's loss at Kansas City.

Ham played a fewer-than-average 22 snaps on offense but had a season-high (tied with Week 4) in targets. He could get a modest bump in targets if Adam Thielen (hamstring) remains sidelined.

Vikings' C.J. Ham: No touches Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ham played 22 snaps on offense in Sunday's win over Atlanta but did not have a carry nor was he targeted in the passing game.

Despite reports in the preseason that the Vikings planned to utilize a fullback more in the offense, Ham wasn't involved beyond being a blocker even in a game where the Vikings ran for 172 yards. Ham could emerge with a smaller pass receiving role or goal-line role, but he can't be counted on for any touches each week.

Vikings' C.J. Ham: Vikings plan to utilize fullbacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ham played half of the starting offense's eight-play touchdown drive in Minnesota's first preseason game, which is a sign the Vikings plan to use a fullback more this season, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "It's very important," assistant head coach Gary Kubiak said. "It gives us a chance to be flexible. We can run a two-back offense [and] a one-back offense with the same personnel on the field. Both of our fullbacks catch the ball very well."

Ham averaged just 9.3 snaps per game last season and had just six carries and 11 receptions, so even a large increase in his workload won't translate to viable fantasy value in most formats. However, this shows how the Vikings plan to emphasize the run (which is good news for Dalvin Cook) and Ham could be an option in single-game DFS or formats that reward the rare big game.

Vikings' C.J. Ham: Returning to Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ham (elbow) re-signed Tuesday with the Vikings on a one-year, $645,000 contract, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The transaction was more of a formality than anything else since Ham was an exclusive-rights free agent and his choice was either to sign the contract or sit out in 2019. The third-year fullback has carved out a sizable role on both offense and special teams for the Vikings in both of the past two seasons and should again see a modest amount of playing time in 2019.

Vikings' C.J. Ham: Ruled out for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ham (elbow) is ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Ham will remain sidelined as he nurses an elbow injury sustained during a Week 16 win over the Lions. Expect Latavius Murray and Ameer Abdullah to see increased work as blockers as long as Ham is unable to suit up.
