Vikings healthy as they await battle against Redskins
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Aside from ruled-out tight end Kyle Rudolph (abdomen/groin), the Vikings are in fine shape as they await their Sunday game against Washington.

Listed as questionable is cornerback Jabari Price (hamstring). The probables are defensive end Brian Robison (glute), cornerback Josh Robinson (ankle), defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (ankle/knee), linebacker Gerald Hodges (hamstring), safety Antone Exum (ankle/shoulder) and tight end Chase Ford (foot).

Fantasy Analysis | 1414437698
Hard to get excited about Chase Ford
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Vikings tight end Chase Ford, who has been filling in for an injured Kyle Rudolph since Week 4, finally had a respectable performance Week 8 at Tampa Bay, catching all six passes thrown his way for 61 yards. Of course, it came a just week after being shut out on three targets, his only game without a catch since Rudolph went down.

And that's kind of the problem. He has a rookie quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater who, like most rookie quarterbacks, has an extremely low floor every week. He'll hold his own when he faces teams like the Buccaneers, but with less favorable matchups, he may struggle to throw for even 200 yards.

And it's not like Ford is a playmaker himself. He needs good quarterback play to put up decent numbers in Fantasy. For standard league use, the odds are against him, especially since Rudolph figures to return from his groin injury at some point.
