It took a few years, but it looks the annual carousel of quarterbacks in Minnesota may have finally landed on a winner! While Teddy Bridgewater looks to be the right captain for the Vikings, is he ready to lead the raids that pillage your fantasy opponents? Although it worked out well, Bridgewater didnít exactly fly out of the gate after his first start in Week 3. It wasnít until his fourth start that he finally threw his first touchdown. But itís not the start of a rookie quarterbackís first season that should be evaluated, but the finish. After a rocky first seven games (3 touchdowns, 5 interceptions, 188 yards/game), Bridgewater seemed to get the hang of things after a heartbreaking 3-point loss to the Packers in Week 12. Counting that game, Bridgewater showed definite improvement during the final six , as he amassed a 10-6 touchdown-to-interception ratio, and averaged 240 yards/game. Over the final five games of the season, Bridgewater also completed over 70% of his passes. Bridgewater not only developed as a passer and playmaker, but he kept his team competitive in games, as five of his seven losses as a starter were by six points or less. So what does the real life development do for his fantasy prospects? Itís just one of several check marks in the upside column.

Joining Bridgewater in the backfield this year is none other than generational running back Adrian Peterson. With the drama of last season in the rear view mirror, Peterson can and will dominate defensive attention, giving Bridgewater a slew of softer coverages to throw against. Running around in that newly created real estate will be a host of potential pass catching options. Veteran Mike Wallace adds a lid busting element to the younger, but supremely talented trio of Charles Johnson, Jarius Wright and Cordarrelle Patterson. If he can stay healthy (IF!), tight end Kyle Rudolph should be able to clean up around the line of scrimmage on curl and in routes, and in the red zone. If you werenít convinced that Bridgewater offers fantasy QB2 upside, just look at the storied history offensive coordinator Norv Turner has with developing passing offenses. Baring a hiccup in Miami, all of Turners teams have demonstrated a significant statistical upgrade during his tenure calling the offense. Not impressed? Heís made these gains with the likes of Heath Shuler, journeyman Doug Flutie, and a very raw Alex Smith as some of his signal callers. Bridgewater has the talent and development edge on those guys, and should end up being a very sneaky QB2 with QB1 upside you can draft late to pair with a stud.

Charles Johnson looking like Bridgewater favorite
Vikings WR poised for big breakout

Minnesota Vikings

FFToday's Take: Teddy Bridgewater trusts Johnson more than any other receiver. When the Vikings went for it on 4th and 6, Bridgewater fired a completion outside the numbers to Johnson, who runs precise routes and could be on the verge of a big-time breakout in 2015. He's a solid WR2 with tons of upside.
