If you have a likely playoff team in your fantasy football league it will be a good idea to add QB Teddy Bridgewater now and stash him in case of emergency in December.
Bridgewater is a dual threat out of the backfield for the Vikings (he's a decent threat to run as well as pass) and came up big in the fantasy football playoffs two years ago. Against the Bears during most league's semi-finals week in 2015, Bridgewater tossed four TDs. The week prior in most team's quarterfinals week, Bridgewater threw for 335 yards.
One may think that Bridgewater would be unbelievably rusty, but Bridgewater has been around the Vikings throughout his arduous rehab and knows the Vikings playbook inside and out. If Case Keenum can put up decent numbers in this relatively simplistic Minnesota offense, there's no reason to think that Bridgewater can't step right in and pick up where he left off.
Kenyan Drake is in an RB by committee role in Miami at the moment, sharing time with Damien Williams. Expect Drake to win the job soon … like this week against the Buccaneers. The Bucs are ranked 27th in the entire NFL in total yards allowed this season. Drake is an exceptional pass catcher as well as runner as evidenced by his six catch performance against the Raiders on Nov. 5 (he also had 69 yards rushing against Oakland). Here is Drake's last three weeks:
Oct. 26 vs. Baltimore: six carries, 66 yards
Nov. 5 vs. Oakland: nine carries, 69 yards
Nov. 13 vs. Panthers: seven carries, 82 yards, 1 TD
It's clear that things are trending in the right direction for Drake. He's absolutely work an add this weekend as a low-end RB2.
