Vikings QB Sam Bradford not expected to play Week 3, next steps 'are unclear'

ESPN - [Full Article]

Dan Graziano: Vikings QB Sam Bradford is not expected to play Sunday. Knee didn't respond well to practice work this week. Next steps beyond this week are unclear.

Related players: Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen, Kyle Rudolph

Fantasy Impact:

Ian Rapoport confirmed the report. This is an obvious downgrade for the entire Minnesota offense and the Buccaneers defense now looks like a good streaming option in Week 3. Graziano's mention of the "next steps" being "unclear" is not a good sign for Bradford's short-term availability.

Scouting Report

Week 3 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Stefon Diggs struggled last week without Sam Bradford. The talented receiver finished with just 2 catches for 27 yards on 6 targets. Bradford is still questionable with a knee injury, so if he sits again, then it could be worth benching Diggs this week against a tough Buccaneers defense.

If Bradford does play, as he's expected to, then Diggs returns as a WR2 play, especially in PPR formats where he performs well. Diggs is Bradford's favorite target when healthy, so if the veteran QB returns, then you should trust the Vikings wideout.
