Teddy Bridgewater is clearly the quarterback of the future for the Vikings. However, just because he is a very likable guy who has a very promising future, doesn’t mean he’s worth a spot on your fantasy team.
Last season, Teddy Bridgewater started all 16 games of the regular season. Unfortunately, because of the Vikings’ ball control offense, Teddy was the 23rd quarterback in fantasy football points (NFL.com default scoring).
There has been a lot of talk about the Vikings trying to unleash Teddy this year, and it’s possible he finishes the 2016 season with more fantasy points than he had in 2015. Personally, I’m not drafting Bridgewater until he proves he can put up better numbers than he’s shown so far.
(And before you get your torches and pitchforks, know I’m a huge Teddy fan. But being a good quarterback in the real world doesn’t correlate to fantasy football points.)
