Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Held to one catch Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudolph brought in one of two targets for four yards in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Buccaneers.

The sure-handed tight end hasn't quite been himself over the first three weeks of the 2017 campaign, as he now has just eight catches over that span. Rudolph's reception and yardage total were his lowest since Week 8 of last season, while his target share was his lowest since Week 17 of 2015. Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen have gobbled up 49 targets between them over the first three contests, while a renewed focus on the running game due to the early success of rookie Dalvin Cook has also affected Rudolph's overall opportunities. Given his established role within the Minnesota offense, Rudolph figures to still retain an important role in the Vikings passing attack, even if it isn't to the extent of previous seasons. He'll look to improve on his production against the Lions in Week 4.

Vikings' Adam Thielen: Bounces back with 98-yard effort in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thielen brought in five of eight targets for 98 yards in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Buccaneers.

Thielen rebounded from a rather ordinary 44-yard tally against the Steelers to more than double his yardage total against a Bucs secondary missing veteran Brent Grimes (shoulder). The fourth-year pro posted his second catch of over 40 yards during the contest as well and has an impressive 19 receptions through the first three weeks of 2017. Thielen and Stefon Diggs appear to be working seamlessly together and will look to continue producing against the Lions in an intra-divisional Week 4 matchup

Vikings' Stefon Diggs: Takes advantage of depleted secondary Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diggs brought in eight of 11 targets for 173 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Buccaneers.

Taking full advantage of a Bucs secondary missing stalwart ball-hawk Brent Grimes, Diggs showed spectacular synergy with quarterback Case Keenum, posting team highs in receptions, yardage and targets. Diggs' touchdowns -- sandwiched around halftime -- essentially served to blow the game open, with the second, a 59-yard score, extending the Vikings' lead to 28-3 to open the third quarter. The third-year pro now has a pair of two-touchdown efforts in the first three contests and appears primed for what could be his first 1,000-yard campaign. He'll look to continue producing irrespective of who's behind center when Minnesota faces off with the division-rival Lions in Week 4.

Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Contributes 169 yards of offense in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook rushed 27 times for 97 yards and his first NFL touchdown and brought in all five targets for 72 yards in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Buccaneers.

Cook powered in from one yard out to cap a seven-play, 75-yard opening drive and notch his first touchdown as a pro. The standout rookie then went on to log a career high in carries and demonstrate that he can handle the volume of a true workhorse back with superior results. Cook looks every bit the first-round talent he projected to be coming into last April's draft, and he'll look to continue producing versus the Lions in a Week 4 home matchup.

Vikings' Case Keenum: Puts up career-high yardage total in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum completed 25 of 33 passes for 369 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Buccaneers. He also gained 18 yards on six rushes.

To say that Keenum's effort came out of nowhere would likely be an understatement, as he looked like a completely different quarterback than the one who struggled to a pedestrian 167-yard passing day against the Steelers in Week 2. The 29-year-old extended his winning streak against the Bucs to three games with the victory and led the Vikings on scoring drives of seven, 13 and six plays in the first half. He spread the ball around effectively as well, hitting eight different pass catchers and connecting with Stefon Diggs twice and veteran Jarius Wright once for his scoring throws. With Sam Bradford's status for Week 4 murky at best, Keenum may be called upon again to helm the offense against the division-rival Lions.
