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.

Fantasy Impact: 

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.
