Vikings' Zimmer: 'Really glad' Teddy Bridgewater playing as a rookie
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/16/14) Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has had decent success as a rookie quarterback in 2014. He has a .500 record through his first 10 starts, while completing 63.5 percent of his passes and posting an 82.7 quarterback rating.
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer understood the risk of Bridgewater losing confidence had he struggled immensely as a rookie, but luckily that hasn't been the case.
"I know this guy's got a chance to be the guy for a long, long time here, and what I was nervous about at the beginning of the year was I didn't want to get him beat up," Zimmer said, per the Pioneer Press. "I didn't want to get him gun-shy; I didn't want to get him a bunch of bad outings where he didn't have the confidence and that attitude that he was going to do the things that he's doing.
"The one thing I do know about Teddy is he learns from the experiences he's had. I expect him to continue to improve in those ways. I'm really glad that he's playing."
Teddy Bridgewater, Kyle Rudolph finding each other?
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(12/15/14) Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and tight end Kyle Rudolph haven't had a lot of opportunities to work together. Bridgewater took over in Week 3, which was also when Rudolph suffered a groin injury that sidelined him for the team's next six games. Week 15 at Detroit, then, was only their fifth game working together. It was also by far their best.
Bridgewater found Rudolph seven times for 69 yards, both representing season highs for the fourth-year tight end. With Bridgewater also throwing for more than 300 yards for the second straight game, maybe it's the start of something.
Then again, two of those catches for 16 of those yards came with the Vikings desperate to get into field goal range with less than a minute to go. The Lions were happy to let Bridgewater dump the ball off underneath, and he obliged. Change Rudolph's line to five catches for 56 yards, and it's ... well, it's still the best he's done with Bridgewater, but it's nothing special.
Wide receiver Charles Johnson has been the greater beneficiary of Bridgewater's emergence -- or perhaps the cause of it. Still, Rudolph remains one of the Vikings' more reliable receiving options, so if Bridgewater keeps putting up numbers, some of them will have to go to his tight end.
This time of year, though, is too late to earn your trust.

Teddy Bridgewater throws two touchdown passes in Week 13 win
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(11/30/14) Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater had one of his best games of the season Sunday against Carolina.|
Bridgewater threw two touchdown passes and completed 15 of his 21 pass attempts for 138 yards to help lead the Vikings to a 31-13 win. It was Bridgewater’s first game throwing multiple touchdown passes without throwing an interception. He also added 12 rushing yards on two attempts.
The Vikings face the Jets Week 14.
|We know that Teddy Bridgewater is the future starting quarterback of the Vikings. We don't know when that future will arrive, but with Matt Cassel simply a placeholder in Minnesota, it shouldn't take too long. Bridgewater threw for 9,370 yards, completing 68 pct. of his passes and scoring 74 total touchdowns over three seasons (38 games) with Louisville, earning him chops as the most "NFL ready" quarterback in May's draft. Because we don't know when Bridgewater will start, Fantasy owners shouldn't consider him ready for 2014. When he does start expect him to be on waivers if you need him as a bye-week replacement and possible sleeper. As for the long-term, Bridgewater should get snagged with a mid- to late-round pick in dynasty/keeper start-ups and a late first-round pick in rookie-only drafts.
