Vikings Beat: Teddy Bridgewater 'looks noticeably more solid' at 215 lbs

Pioneer Press - [Full Article]

These days, the Vikings list Teddy Bridgewater at 215 pounds, and he looks noticeably more solid. The offseason plan was for him to beef up.

"There was a set amount, a set weight limit for me coming into training camp, which is 215," Bridgewater said Wednesday at training camp. "I was able to put on some weight but most of it was muscle. I'm trying to make sure that I'm building myself up to withstand some hits that I'm going to take throughout the year and withstand the long season that's ahead of us."

Fantasy Impact: 

It's good to hear that Bridgewater is packing muscle on his relatively slight frame. It can only help. The acquisition of Mike Wallace is good news for Bridgewater, who averaged a solid 15.0 FP after his Week 10 bye. Those are QB2-type numbers, so with a year under his belt and Wallace (and a healthy Kyle Rudolph?) in the mix, Bridgewater should be a good QB2 with QB1-type upside if everything breaks his way. The return of Adrian Peterson can only help the offense as a whole.
