Daily Fantasy Stock Report: Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater tears ACL in left knee, suffers other structural damage; out for the season

Every morning we compile the most important fantasy football links of the day for you to stay up-to-date and ahead of your fantasy opponents… This is your number one place for beat writer blabber, injury news, transaction tracking, and fantasy analysis from the experts who taught us a thing or two.

Well this puts a major damper on things in Minnesota. First and foremost, you have to feel for Teddy Bridgewater who really began to shut up the scouts who had a bunch of of shit to say about him (including his skinny knees; too soon?). The Vikings were a darkhorse pick to win the NFC this year and they completely rebuilt the offensive line and added weapons on the perimeter to build around their future star quarterback.

From a fantasy perspective, Shaun Hill is now your starter at quarterback, which completely destroys Stefon Diggs as a fantasy sleeper. Take him off your board. As for Adrian Peterson (Big Board 15; RB6), I’m a huge believer in quarterback performance and how it correlates to the run game, which is why even though I’m a fan of Todd Gurley‘s game, I just can’t justify taking him as the overall RB1 with whatever trash is at quarterback in LA. Peterson will now face a loaded box, and sorry folks, but he’s not in his mid-20s anymore. His volume of carries will still make him a valuable RB1, but now guys such as Lamar MillerEzekiel Elliott and Le’Veon Bell should all be locks to be picked ahead of him, and you can now make a case to draft  LeSean McCoy and Devonta Freeman over him as well.

Get well soon Teddy and rehab that skinny knee of yours. Also, check back at the end of the week for The Wolf’s Big Board to see where he ranks AP.

Looks like the Bruce Ellington hype train got derailed today, as he suffered a torn hamstring. Ellington was one of our “penny stocks” of the 2016 season and he was gaining rave reviews throughout camp. It now looks like Blaine Gabbert Carlos Hyde is the only legitimate fantasy option out in that fantasy dumpster fire that is San Francisco.

So it looks like the Steelers are stashing away their tight end who is dealing with headaches. Err, I mean ankle issues stemming from an offseason surgery. The Steelers declined to tweet out the injury, so we will just run with what Green told us, an ankle. The PUP list means Green is ineligible to practice or join the active roster until after Week 6. Jesse James (not Eric Decker’s wife) will now start at tight end for the Steelers. James is not talented or dynamic enough to be on the fantasy radar, but Ben Roethlisberger has always had a good relationship with his tight end, especially in the red zone. I would stay away from Green right now, since we are completely in the dark regarding his health.

It’s good to see that Cardinals receiver John Brown has been cleared to play for Thursday, but he will most likely sit out the club’s fourth preseason game. It’s never good when a receiver who makes the majority of his plays in the middle of his field is dealing with concussion issues and headaches. Brown does a lot for the Cardinals’ offense and he is a solid flex option in PPR leagues and in DFS.

Quick Hits:

  • The Patriots have officially placed Dion Lewis on PUP, meaning he will miss the first six weeks of the season
  • Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell fully practiced today on the same day they began to shop Aaron “Dropson” Dobson. Coincidence? Nah.
  • The ghost of Breshad Perriman will make his preseason debut on Thursday
  • Redskins WR Josh Doctson looks like this year‘s Perriman
  • The Cowboys are looking to keep Darren McFadden; however, they have received some calls for the fragile running back
