Vikings Beat: WR Michael Floyd has been 'impressive' in practice

Vikings - [Full Article]

Every day, Michael Floyd made three or four plays in training camp that opened your eyes. His physical presence, sure hands and ability to create separation are impressive. Often times, a Vikings defensive back was in perfect position to knock down a pass heading Floyd’s way, but the veteran would leave his feet, extend his arms and pluck the ball from the air before the defender could swat it away. Floyd made catches in traffic, deep down the field, in the red zone and along the sideline day after day.

Fantasy Impact:

Floyd is competing with Laquon Treadwell and Jarius Wright for snaps behind starters Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen. He's suspended for the first four games, so he'll have ground to make up when he returns.

Vikes WRs Charles Johnson, Stefon Diggs atop depth chart

Tuesday, September 6, 2016, 2:04pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

Charles Johnson and Stefon Diggs, who spent most of the preseason as the top receivers in the Vikings' base offense, will start the season there, with Laquon Treadwell listed behind Johnson at one spot and Adam Thielen, Cordarrelle Patterson and Jarius Wright on the other side.

A league source told ESPN last week the Vikings were exploring the possibility of trading Wright, and it appears he could have to push to be active on game days. The ability of players like Thielen and Patterson to contribute on special teams should put them on the field Sunday against Tennessee.

Fantasy Impact:

We had a recent news story that Thielen could end up in the slot replacing Wright at some point this season. Also Treadwell is a guy who could also find the field a lot more than his spot on the depth chart indicates.

Vikes WR Stefon Diggs could be used more in slot

Saturday, September 3, 2016, 12:54pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Matt Vensel of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that the Vikings aren’t shopping WR Jarius Wright. A largely overlooked slot player who has a modest history of making reliable catches in the clutch, Vensel suggested that Wright has lost the slot job to Adam Thielen. However, a source with knowledge of the inner workings of the organization tells PFT slightly otherwise.

Stefon Diggs quietly has become the team’s primary slot receiver. Although the plan this year is to move him around, the thinking is that he’ll fit best in the slot more often than not. So with Wright supplanted by Diggs and Thielen a key contributor on special teams, Thielen becomes more valuable to the overall roster.

Fantasy Impact:

Laquon Treadwell and Charles Johnson also will get plenty of reps on the outside, with Cordarrelle Patterson expected to do something more than return kicks this year. Then there’s rookie sixth-round Moritz Böhringer, who is widely expected to be waived today and then re-signed to the practice squad if he clears waivers.
