I have a future in Cirque Du Soleil Juan…

In 2010, Simpson really wasn’t even a blip on the fantasy radar until T.O. went down and Simpson went off for 18/247/3 in the final 2 games. I had hopes of him becoming a sleeper in 2011, but was all over the map and finished with 50/725/4 despite playing opposite AJ Green.

The Vikings picked him up a free agent this Summer in hopes that he could be a compliment to Percy Harvin. Harvin does his best work near the line of scrimmage and TE Kyle Rudolph is the Red Zone guy. Christian Ponder needs a deep threat and Simpson could be that guy and the missing piece to the puzzle in the Vikings offense. I will be watching to see how they use him tomorrow.
