Frigga Fantasy Football Friday: BYE Week Edition

The Daily Norseman breaks down the statistical production of the Vikings during the first quarter of NFL action during the team's week four BYE. With the Vikings on a BYE this week, there's not much to say about their chances in fantasy football.  But since we've also completed the first quarter of the season, it would be an excellent time to look at some of the usage trends for the Vikings.  Four games is a mighty small sample size, but I wanted to share with you a few interesting "stats of opportunity". When thinking about quarterback production there are two things that stand out:...

Vikings Stock Market: Quarterly Report

The Vikings finish the first quarter of the season at 2-2 with the bye week looming. Let's see who's up, who's down, and everything else in between. At 2-2, the Vikings have given us three pretty good games and one stink bomb. Like Mike Zimmer said in his weekly press conference, we won't celebrate moral victories here, but there were plenty of silver linings to take away from that loss. When you add in convincing home wins against the Chargers and Lions, that 49ers bag of garbage that was the opener looks more and more like an anomaly, and that's a good thing. When I look across the...

Norse Code Podcast Episode 89: Diggs Does Denver (with guest Davis Mattek)

We review the Denver game and take a long look at the DFS scandal that's taking over the headlines with a professional DFS player, Davis Mattek. If you're really interested in the DFS scandal, the guest spot with Davis begins at 1:00:54. If you're really not interested in it, it ends at 1:36:35, where the mailbag starts. A lot of great insight from Davis on the industry, even if you're not interested in it, so I highly recommend listening to it. *****Download Link Here***** Episode Notes: Matt Birk went to Harvard Here's the reddit thread that breaks down Adrian Peterson's speed using the...

Scouting Newly Acquired Center Nick Easton

The Daily Norseman provides some more details on the newly acquired center Nick Easton. The big news of the day of course is that the Vikings traded linebacker Gerald Hodges to the 49ers for a 6th round pick.  And the player that helped even out that deal was backup center Nick Easton.  Easton played his college ball at Harvard where he was a 2-year starter.  He earned all-conference honors as a junior and named to numerous All-America teams as a senior.  He had good size coming out in the 2015 draft graded as a 7th round/un-drafted free agent level prospect.  Lance Zierlein, a...

Broncos Vikings Game Balls for Ronnie Hillman, Michael Schofield and that nasty Orange Crush defense

When the Denver Broncos win, the MHR Staff gives out game balls. And after the 23-20 thrilling victory over the upstart Minnesota Vikings, game balls we will give. The Denver Broncos defense continues to get the job done, even with the offense stumbling a bit here and there with the turnovers and lack of touchdown drives. They defeated the Minnesota Vikings 23-20 in a thrilling game that came down to yet another defensive turnover to secure victory for the Broncos. As much as I want to start comparing this defense to the 2013 Seattle Seahawks, we must temper our expectations until we know...

Re-Shuffling The WR Deck Of Cards

With the season one quarter gone, let's take another look at the Vikings wide receiver depth Coming into the 2015 season, there were three over-arching story lines regarding the wide receivers on the Minnesota Vikings. The first one was the potential renaissance of 2013 first round pick Cordarrelle Patterson. Patterson finished 2013 with a flair, leading the NFL in receptions over the last month of the season, and flashed enough big play potential to make you think he was going to be a long time fixture in the Vikings offense. A subpar 2014 made 2015 a prove it year for him, both the player...

Stock Market Report: Broncos

A blowout became a tie game became a winnable game became a close loss Mike Zimmer has said he wants a physical football team that knows how to finish games. After Sunday's game, he's halfway there. What started out as a potential blowout turned into a tie game that saw the Vikings with the ball, 1:30 left, and two timeouts. In short, they had a chance to flat out beat Denver, in Denver. I hate moral victories as much as the next person, but I have to say...this was an encouraging development in the maturity and competitiveness of this team. Don't get me wrong, I always want the Vikings to...

Minnesota Vikings at Denver Broncos: Fourth Quarter Open Thread

After deferring on the first half kickoff, the Denver Broncos started the second half with the football against the Minnesota Vikings, holding a 13-10 lead. It took the Broncos just four plays to get to midfield, and Peyton Manning started doing Peyton Manning things, hitting Emmanuel Sanders for a 47-yard pass down to the Minnesota 3-yard line. The Broncos got down to the 1-yard line, and the Vikings held to face a fourth down try. On that fourth down, Manning was able to find a wide open Owen Daniels in the end zone for a touchdown. Brandon McManus came in and hit the extra point, and the...

Minnesota Vikings at Denver Broncos: Third Quarter Open Thread

To start the second quarter, the Denver Broncos found themselves facing a 3rd-and-14 from their own 8-yard line against the Minnesota Vikings, and the Vikings ended Denver's drive with a sack of Peyton Manning by Eric Kendricks. It was the first sack of his career, and forced the Broncos to punt from the shadow of their own goal posts. Britton Colquitt gave the Broncos a little bit of room, but his punt only went to the Minnesota 48, giving the Vikings good field position to start their third possession of the afternoon. The Vikings quickly found themselves facing third down, but Teddy...

Scouting the enemy: Minnesota Vikings

This Sunday the Broncos look to extend their undefeated status and reign supreme in the AFC at 4-0. They face an opponent on the rise in the Minnesota Vikings who are 2-1 and in second place in the NFC North. If I would have told prior to the start of the season that the Minnesota Vikings would be the best team the Denver Broncos would face a quarter of the way through their quest for the Lombardi Trophy, you would have all fallen out of your seats laughing.  Alas, coming into Denver with a 2-1 record, Adrian Peterson at full speed and a formidable defense forged by the insightful mind of...

Ryan Harris, Michael Schofield confident about Broncos O-line moves

Despite a lack of playing time together, the Broncos' offensive line moves this week are not worrying the offensive linemen. Good morning, Broncos Country! Ryan Harris is switching from right tackle to left and sophomore tackle Michael Schofield will get his NFL regular season debut as a right tackle on Sunday when the Broncos take the field against the Vikings. Both will be tasked with stopping one of the most formidable defensive lines in the league. Why would there be any pressure? He's only like a future Hall-of-Famer, right?   -Ryan Harris on protecting Manning's blind...

How many yards can Adrian Peterson get before the Broncos are in trouble?

100? 200? I hopped on The Afternoon Drive this Friday to talk with Eric Goodman and Les Shapiro about the Broncos, and the big news that had just broken regarding Ty Sambrailo, Ryan Harris, and Michael Schofield. While we spent some time breaking that down, they asked me another question I found fascinating that I want to pose to all of you in a poll -- How many yards can Adrian Peterson gain on the ground before the Broncos lose this game against the Vikings Sunday? Shapiro had one number in mind; another Broncos fan had a big number in mind; I fell somewhere in the middle. Listen to hear...
