Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater showing an improved deep ball

Pioneer Press - [Full Article]

By all accounts, Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has been impressive in workouts the past couple of months. And one reason, perhaps, is the “Teddy Two Gloves Passing Academy.”

That’s what Bridgewater’s teammates are calling their week together in April, when he brought in his top pass-catchers for workouts in Florida. In attendance were Vikings receivers Stefon Diggs, Jarius Wright, Charles Johnson, Cordarrelle Patterson and Adam Thielen, and tight ends Kyle Rudolph and MyCole Pruitt.

Coach Mike Zimmer said Bridgewater has shown plenty of improvement this spring, especially throwing the deep ball.

Zimmer says Bridgewater is winging it.

“I think we’re just focused on it a little more,” Zimmer said. “There was a play last week that kind of showed me the progression. … (Bridgewater) saw the safety bite a little bit and just hung it right down the middle of the field about 55 yards and a perfect strike. So those are the kind of things I see (that) two years ago or even early last year, I don’t think he would have done. … He just looks more comfortable and confident.”

Fantasy Impact:

Bridgewater played 16 games and finished #23 in QB scoring in his second season. If he has truly added a consistent deep ball to his arsenal, it will drastically improve his fantasy outlook.
