The Vikings announced today that WR Stefon Diggs will not play this week against the Baltimore Ravens. QB Sam Bradford was also ruled out.
The Ravens pose a tough matchup for WRs, according to our aFPA metric, ranking as the sixth-toughest matchup of the week. With Diggs officially out, that makes Adam Thielen the team's No. 1 WR. We currently have Thielen ranked as our No. 13 WR in PPR leagues and our No. 17 WR in standard leagues. The Ravens are allowing the third-fewest standard fantasy points to WRs (13.7 per game) and no WR has crossed the century mark in receiving yards against them. You might not have better options than Thielen, but keep your expectations low this week.

Week 3 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Update: Bradford has been ruled OUT for Week 3.
Sam Bradford didn't play last week due to a knee injury. He's been "limited" in practice so far this week and appears on track to play against the Bucs. If he doesn't play, Case Keenum would draw the start, and if that happens, then don't start him.
Even if Bradford does play, he likely won't be a great option. The Bucs were vicious against the Bears in Week 2, and although Minnesota is better, it's still risky to start an injured Bradford against this defense. Bradford played well in Week 1, but he's a less-than-optimal play in Week 3.
