2014 Outlook: Do Not Draft

Last updated on Jun-23-2014 by Rob Warner

GM Rick Spielman will be hoping the Bridgewater selection works out better than 2011 first round bust Christian Ponder. Since Ponder was drafted 12th overall, the Vikings' passing offense has ranked 28th, 31st, and 23rd. Minnesota will look to trade Ponder before Week 1, but worst case he'll remain on the roster as their No. 3 quarterback at a manageable salary ($1.8 million salary guaranteed). ESPN sideline reporter Samantha Ponder's husband has failed to average more than 185 yards per game during any of his first three seasons and holds a disappointing 38 TD to 34 INT ratio over his first 36 NFL contests.

Latest Update

Jul-27-14 Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater already getting first-team reps

Teddy Bridgewater is making a quick ascent up the pecking order of quarterbacks in Minnesota.
According to FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, the rookie is already splitting first-team reps in practice with Matt Cassel, and there is "hugeeee optimism" for his future.
"May not be Week 1 starter but he's definitely been more impressive than [coaches] expected," Glazer tweeted about Bridgewater on Sunday

Fantasy Analysis:

That last sentence echoes a sentiment Bridgewater's own offensive coordinator, Norv Turner, expressed earlier this month.
Bridgewater is a fine dynasty pick. Even with Turner's help, I'm not thinking about him much in re-draft leagues. But if he can keep defenses somewhat honest and get the ball to Cordarrelle Patterson and Kyle Rudolph consistently, he's cool with me.
