The Vikings will be missing four starters on defense, so dial up David Johnson and the rest of the Arizona starters. John Brown and Michael Floyd can be used as WR2/WR3 types given the probable tags. They should be getting close to full health. With Stepfan Taylor in, Kerwynn Williams is a bit less appealing as a Sneaky Start, but he may have earned 5-10 touches with a big game last week against the Rams.

Cardinals TE Jermaine Gresham (hamstring, questionable) took limited practice reps all week and is questionable for Week 1. Gresham is a game-time decision for Sunday. The Cardinals play in the late game. Owners should be looking elsewhere for their tight end needs.

Gresham, coming off back surgery, was on the physically unable to perform list, and Niklas, out with a hamstring injury, was on the non-football injury list.
The Cardinals signed Gresham to a one-year contract on July 24. Niklas, a second-round draft pick out of Notre Dame last year, has been plagued by injuries in his brief NFL career.
Coach Bruce Arians said both will be limited to walkthroughs for now.
If Bengals QB Andy Dalton has the kind of year that OC Hue Jackson envisions, it’s because he’ll be a point guard executing some pretty exotic stuff. After his first season was marred by injuries to both starting wide receivers and a starting tight end, Jackson is itching to unload some Xs and Os.
“We're going to open Pandora's box more,” Jackson said. “We tickled it a little bit last year. We're going to open it up a little bit more this year and be who I think we can be…But I tell you what, the defenses are so good, the defensive players are so good and they disguise all the time, why can't we? It's a chess match, and whoever is not afraid to pull the trigger, pull the trigger. And I'm not afraid, so let's go.”
“I tell people all the time -- close, personal friends of mine -- that was probably my best coaching job. To not have A.J. Green. To not have Tyler Eifert. To not have a healthy Jermaine Gresham to start the season. You lose Kevin Zeitler for a couple games,” Jackson said. “We mixed and matched pretty well last year. Not to the best of what we could have been, but we did a decent job. Obviously a healthy Cincinnati Bengal offensive football team has a chance to be very dynamic….If we can stay healthy, some of those hardened times can turn into some good times.”
Jackson went run-heavy in 2014, which is typical of his style, but we shouldn't ignore the possibility that a healthy A.J. Green, Marvin Jones and Tyler Eifert could lead to the Bengals taking a more balanced approach in 2015. They were the 5th-most run-heavy team last season after finishing middle-of-the-pack in that category under then-OC Jay Gruden the year before. If Jackson does in fact call more pass plays, it can only help Dalton's fantasy prospects.
