Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins faces the Los Angeles Chargers on the road in Week 15, and Cousins ranks 20th in the NFL with a 49.4 Total QBR in road games this while ranking fourth with a 75.4 Total QBR in home games.
Huddle Up: The good news for fantasy owners is that while Cousins has seen his yardage totals and completion percentage dip on the road, he has still managed to throw multiple touchdowns in his last five road contests. Consider him a low-end QB1 candidate against the Bolts.

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (groin) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Rudolph has been playing well over the last several weeks and has at least one touchdown in four of the last five games. He can be considered a No. 1 tight end in most fantasy leagues.

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (chest) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 13, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Cook has been one of the top running backs in the NFL this season and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 13, but is not on the injury report for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Thielen appears to be on track to play this week, but fantasy players should check the inactive list to make sure. He is one of the better receivers in the NFL when he is healthy and is a must-start option if he plays.

Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison (ankle) on Friday, Dec. 13, was ruled out of Week 15 with an ankle injury.
Huddle Up: Mattison, widely rostered as one of fantasy's top handcuffs, will now miss his first game of his rookie season. That leaves Mike Boone as the back likely to spell starter Dalvin Cook on Sunday, but Boone has no stand-alone fantasy value outside of the deepest of leagues.

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen doesn't appear on the team's Week 15 injury report, and appears set to return following a four-game hamstring-injury absence.
Huddle Up: With so many other wide receivers coming up injured of late, we do have some good news for the fantasy postseason as Thielen will be back to pump up the Vikings' passing attack. Fire him up as a WR2/flex play if you need him.

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (groin) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: Rudolph has been more involved in the passing game during the second half of the season and has five touchdowns in the last five games. He can be a No. 1 tight end in fantasy leagues this week.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) took part in all of the individual drills at practice Thursday, Dec. 12.
Huddle Up: Fox9's Jeff Wald observed that Thielen "moved as close as we've seen him to game speed" since suffering the injury, suggesting he may finally be over the injury that has basically sidelined him - except for a brief time in Week 9 - for over a month. He's not returning to a very favorable matchup in the Los Angeles Chargers, but he needs to be put back into fantasy lineups if he is cleared to go.

Minnesota Vikings TE Kyle Rudolph (groin) practiced in full Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Rudolph's role is likely to decrease this week with WR Adam Thielen expected to return to the lineup. He's a low-end TE1.

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (chest) participated in full at practice Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Cook's efficiency has declined over the course of the season, but he has a touchdown in four straight games and is up to a league-high 13 rushing scores on the season. He's an RB1 in every matchup.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) is expected to return to the lineup against the Los Angeles Chargers Sunday, Dec. 15, barring a setback in practice, per a league source Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Huddle Up: Thielen has been out since Week 9 when he left after playing just seven offensive snaps. He'll immediately return to WR2 status once back in the lineup, and it would be a big boost for fantasy managers in the playoffs.

Minnesota Vikings WR Stefon Diggs posted six receptions for 92 yards on nine targets in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Diggs has been a dependable fantasy option for most of the season, and he remains a decent WR2 in most leagues heading into Week 15 on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Minnesota Vikings RB Alexander Mattison posted 14 runs for 46 yards in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions while adding two grabs for 18 yards.
Huddle Up: Last week starter Dalvin Cook checked out with a nagging injury, so Mattison saw more opportunity. It's uncertain if Cook was again nicked up or Mattison saw more touches due to the Vikings leading in the second half and the team resting Cook a little more. Either way, Mattison is looking like a decent RB3 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams heading into Week 15.

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook rushed 18 times for 62 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions and he added two receptions for 13 yards on two targets.
Huddle Up: It wasn't a great day, but it wasn't a disaster, either. He'll look for better production in Week 15 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Minnesota Vikings QB Kirk Cousins completed 24-of-30 passes for 242 yards, one touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 14 against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: It was a so-so day for the Vikings offense, but they didn't have to be great with the Lions offense doing nothing. They'll have a bigger challenge on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 15.

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) will probably miss Week 14's game versus the Detroit Lions but has a good chance of returning for Week 15's game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Huddle Up: Thielen is a must-start option when healthy, although he has not played a full game since Week 6 and hasn't played at all since Week 9. Fantasy owners should keep him on the bench this week and look for safer receiving alternatives.

Minnesota Vikings WR Dalvin Cook (chest) fully participated in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is not on the injury report for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Cook has reached the end zone in each of the last three games but has been held to under 30 yards rushing in each of the last two games. He is still one of the top running backs in the NFL and should be a starting option in all fantasy leagues.

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (chest) practiced again Friday, Dec. 6, and head coach Mike Zimmer said he expects Cook to play Sunday, Dec. 8, in Week 14.
Huddle Up: Check back, of course, before kickoff Sunday to be certain, and if Cook is playing, he remains locked into your fantasy lineup. The only concern would be if Cook receives a lighter-than-usual workload in the game as a precaution, but we haven't heard anything indicating that's on the table.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) did not practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is listed as doubtful for the team's Week 14 game against the Detroit Lions.
Huddle Up: Unless there's a semi-miraculous change in fortune over the next 48 hours, it appears as if Thielen will miss his fifth start in the last six games. His fantasy owners should be well-versed in the Plan B drill.

Minnesota Vikings WR Adam Thielen (hamstring) was held out of practice Thursday, Dec. 5.
Huddle Up: The Vikings haven't announced as much, but Thielen seems to have suffered a setback after he practiced on a limited basis last week and appeared to have a chance at playing Monday night. We'll see if Friday brings better news, but it's starting to look like Thielen will miss another game.

Minnesota Vikings RB Dalvin Cook (chest) was listed as limited on the team's estimate injury report for Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Huddle Up: Cook remains fairly adamant he won't miss any time after leaving Monday night's contest against the Seattle Seahawks. There'll be no reason to not start him so long as he's active.
