Markus Wheaton Mens Jersey Sam Bradford has been ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Buccaneers, and concerns about his knee injury have called into question his availability in the coming weeks.
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer told reporters Friday afternoon that Bradford is out, leaving Case Keenum to start a second consecutive game for Minnesota.
Multiple outlets reported Bradford was en route to get a second opinion on his left knee from Dr. James Andrews, who has previously operated on the QB’s knee and shoulder.
Felix Potvin Limited Jersey Bradford was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday and did not appear on the practice field Friday.
Keenum was 20 of 37 passing for 167 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Minnesota’s Week 2 loss to the Steelers. Kyle Sloter will back him up Sunday.
Kareem Hunt, RB, Kansas City Chiefs: He just continues to rewrite the record books, posting 25.3 PPR fantasy points on Sunday, his third consecutive week with at least 25. He joined Marcus Allen (1982 Weeks 1-3) as the only two players (at any position) since at least 1950 to score at least that many in each of their first three NFL games, and Hunt’s 96.8 total PPR fantasy points and 87.8 non-PPR fantasy points are second most behind only Billy Sims’ 98.2 and 92.2 (1980 Weeks 1-3) through the first three games of an NFL career. Hunt was started in 98.6 percent of ESPN leagues in Week 3, and continued to cement his status as an every-week, front-of-the-RB1-class weekly fantasy play.
Marcedes Lewis, TE, Jacksonville Jaguars: Congratulations if you were one of the fantasy managers who constituted the 0.03 percent of ESPN leagues in which Lewis was active in Week 3. He managed career bests with 24.2 non-PPR and 28.2 PPR fantasy points, and both of those were the second most by any tight end in a game in London, trailing only Rob Gronkowski’s 26.6 and 34.6 in 2012 Week 8.
