Minnesota Vikings Training Camp Preview: Wide ReceiversBy Chris SchadA couple seasons ago, the Minnesota Vikings showcased one of the worst receiving corps in the league.

Minnesota Vikings Camp Preview: Wide Receivers and Tight Ends

Just a couple of years ago, the receiving corps was a huge weakness for the team, though part of that was due to who was throwing them the ball. Now, from a pass-catching standpoint there is real potential for it to become one of the team’s biggest strengths. At this point, it seems like there will be one open receiver spot and a lot of competition for who joins Kyle Rudolph on...

Minnesota Vikings' Jarius Wright Is Worth A Flier in Fantasy Football

Bill Musgrave’s offense wasn’t kind to many players on the Minnesota Vikings the past three seasons. As he was shown the door along with Leslie Frazier last January, there are plenty of crimes that he could be tried for in failing to get a unit with some talent to perform consistently.Because of that, fantasy football players everywhere were singing to the heavens when Norv Turner...

Minnesota Vikings training camp battle preview: wide receiver

The Minnesota Vikings are a far cry from 2011, when receiver was a position of weakness. Greg Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson headline an exciting group that also includes Jarius Wright and Jerome Simpson—all four of whom figure to take significant snaps. But with NFL teams carrying five, six or sometimes seven receivers on the roster, the position is by no means settled. Though...

Is Greg Childs on His Way Back?

In the fourth round of the 2012 draft, the Minnesota Vikings drafted a tall ass dude out of Arkansas called Greg Childs. He looked lik he had some pretty decent potential as a piece to add to the Vikings offense. Tall, decent speed good weight and strength.

Vikings free-agent focus: Wide receivers

The Vikings have Jerome Simpson and Joe Webb scheduled to be free agents among their receivers, but the team isn’t likely to go for any of the top free agents with Cordarrelle Patterson, Greg Jennings and Jarius Wright in the fold. We pick a couple of second-tier receivers that would make sense.

When referring to the Minnesota Vikings, we often talk about the lack of defense or the mediocre quarterbacking. Mentioned of course is the young wide receiving core led by an injury prone veteran.

Off The Wire: Week 12

This week’s matchups were fierce and full of hard hits- many of which were deemed illegal at the time. This was true for most fantasy owners as well. Some of whom got ear-holed, close-lined, and head-butted, metaphorically and literally speaking. After the dust settled, the crowds went home, and the lights were shut off; one thing is for sure.
