Fantasy Focus: Vikings vs. Buccaneers

Posted: Updated:

Minnesota Vikings:

A Grade Starters:

Adrian Peterson- All day, everyday. AP will be at the top of the running back rankings this week and after his 153 yard one touchdown performance Sunday, there is no reason to sit the dynamic runner.

Percy Harvin- Percy should have a big day against a defense that has allowed big days to opposing number one wide receivers. Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks both posted 10+ catches and 180+ yard games for the Giants.

B Grade Starters:

Christian Ponder- If he weren't playing against the 31st ranked defense against the pass, we'd tell you to bench Ponder this week. Fortunately for Ponder and his 58 yard performance against Arizona he is. He should bounce back quite nicely.

Kyle Rudolph- Ponder completed only eight passes Sunday and none went to the Vikings top tight end. The Vikings offense methodically moves down the field and Rudolph is one of Ponder's top targets in the red zone.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers:

A Grade Starters:

Josh Freeman- No quarterback in the NFL is hotter over the last two weeks than Freeman. Six touchdowns and 750 yards in that time and more impressively, he has thrown one interception this season.

Vincent Jackson- Jackson has quickly upped the ante in the Bucs passing game since coming over from San Diego. The Vikings haven't given up the big play so Jackson's yards may come in smaller chunks.

B Grade Starters:

Doug Martin- The rookie has been solid, but not spectacular from a fantasy perspective. LaRod Stephens Howling just ran for over 100 yards.
