Sam Bradford will return to practice today.

This opens up a 21-day window for the team to decide what they want to do with Bradford. Keenum is going to remain the starter regardless but the Vikes may opt to adjust the backup to Keenum at some point should they make a deep playoff run.

Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) in walking boot

Pioneer Press - [Full Article]

Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph has played three games on a sprained right ankle. He’s finally about to get some extra rest.

Rudolph was in a walking boot after playing just 28 snaps in Minnesota’s 23-10 victory over Chicago at U.S. Bank Stadium. The Vikings earned a first-round playoff bye as the NFC’s No. 2 seed, and he expects to feel a lot better when they next play Jan. 14 on their home field.

“I finally get some time off, so I’m going to try to get this thing back to 100 percent,” Rudolph said. “I played three games on it, so now I get some time off.”

Fantasy Impact:

Rudolph injured his ankle Dec. 10 at Carolina and was listed as doubtful two days before a Dec. 17 game against Cincinnati. He ended up playing against the Bengals, at Green Bay on Dec. 23 and on Sunday against the Bears.
Playing reduced snaps because of the injury, Rudolph caught just one pass for three yards against Chicago to finish the season with 57 catches for 532 yards.

Bears fire John Fox

NFL.com - [Full Article]

John Fox's run in the Windy City is over.

The Chicago Bears fired Fox on Monday after the team finished in the NFC North cellar for the third straight season under his guidance, a source informed of the situation told NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

Fox and the Bears finished the season at 5-11 Sunday following a 23-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Over the course of his 16-year coaching career, Fox had endured multiple digit losses in a season only once before coming to Chicago, where he filed to bring the Bears out of their seven-year postseason hibernation.

Fantasy Impact:

Ian Rapoport reported the team will look for an offensive mind to work with QB Mitch Trubisky. DC Vic Fangio could be an option as well, according to Rapoport.

Pederson: Eagles won't change plans if Vikings lose

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Eagles clinch the No. 1 seed if the Vikings lose to the Packers on Saturday tonight. If the Vikings win, the Eagles will still be playing for something on Monday night when they host the Raiders.

Either way, the Eagles won’t change their plans for Christmas night.

That’s the word straight from Eagles coach Doug Pederson, who was asked by reporters if there’s a dual plan for whether the Vikings lose or the Vikings win. And it was literally the word. As in one word.

“No,” Pederson said.

"I think it's important that they continue to play," Pederson said. "If we're in that position, if we're fortunate to be in that position to rest, I'll make that decision at that time. I think it's important that we continue to play."

This is good news for fantasy owners. Even if the Eagles were to clinch home field advantage Saturday, it appears safe to start your Eagles on Monday night. As always, check our latest rankings updates before lineup lock for your players.
