So how big of a role will WR Jerome Simpson play in the Vikings' offense once he returns from a three-game NFL suspension?
An important clue has come during training camp, where the Vikings have used Simpson extensively with Harvin on their first-team offense rather than giving repetitions to the players who will take his place during the suspension.
"He's one of those guys who plays lights-out in practice, diving for balls, making the hard catches," coach Leslie Frazier said.
We think Simpson has good value at ranked as our 49th receiver. He'll miss three games, but clearly the team is going to count him as a starter when he returns in game four. Simpson's ADP says he won't get drafted in many leagues, but he may be a guy to take a flier on if you have a roster spot to spare, or if your league rules say you can IR him.
