Huddle Up: Bridgewater stood out in organized team activities and he has taken advantage by the fact rookie Sam Darnold is just getting his feet wet after a contract issue. The future is Darnold, but Bridgewater could potentially be the starter in Week 1, and perhaps multiple games if he gets off to a good start. Still, he is only a desperation fantasy target since he isn't likely to be the starter all season and he has a propensity for injury, too.

Huddle Up: Owners will need to monitor the situation during the preseason to see if Darnold is ready to play or if he needs some time to develop. Owners in most leagues should avoid the Jets quarterback no matter who is named the starter.

Huddle Up: Bridgewater has been so impressive that it's even possible he's starting under center in the Jets' season opener. However, he should not yet be considered a real target in any fantasy leagues, as he's still working his way back from a major career-altering injury and might not even end up as the starting quarterback after all. It's Sam Darnold's team anyway.

Huddle Up: It was reported last week that New York's 'Plan B' at quarterback was to sign Josh McCown to serve as the bridge quarterback in 2018 in hopes he could hand the team over to Bridgewater and/or a rookie quarterback in 2019. It remains to be seen what Bridgewater can do after being away from the game for the better part of two seasons, but this figures to be a low-risk, high-reward move for the Jets. If Bridgewater can assume the starting job at some point in 2018, he'll be on the fantasy QB2 radar.

Huddle Up: Bridgewater was reportedly talking with the Jets, but things may change with Josh McCown returning to New York. Bridgewater has been successful as a starter in the past and probably will be looking for a short-term deal in free agency. He should be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he finds a starting job.

Huddle Up: The Jets don't have many options left when it comes to free-agent quarterbacks. Bridgewater is coming off a significant knee injury and doesn't have the most reliable receiving corps. He'll be a backup fantasy quarterback if he does sign with New York.

Huddle Up: Bridgewater is coming back from a serious knee injury but should have the chance to find a starting job this offseason. He probably can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback in most leagues in 2018.

Huddle Up: Bridgewater has seen playing time in only one game over the last two seasons because of a major knee injury but posted decent numbers in his first two years in the league. He has a solid chance to find a starting job this offseason but would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback.

Huddle Up: Bridgewater has been able to return from a major knee injury but did not see a lot of playing time in 2017. It is not known if he will be able to find a starting job in free agency, but he probably would only be a No. 2 fantasy quarterback if he starts for a team in 2018.

Huddle Up: Got all that? It's an obscure rule, but it could at least potentially take Bridgewater off the market, though the speculation is the NFLPA would file a grievance if the NFL tried to toll his contract. At this point it's just wait and see for Bridgewater, who figures to draw some interest on the open market.

Huddle Up: Bridgewater is one of three Vikings quarterbacks that will be free agents this offseason, so he could hit the free-agent market this offseason. He should have a decent chance to find a starting job if he decides to sign with another team. Bridgewater can be considered a No. 2 fantasy quarterback next season if he finds a starting job.

Huddle Up: It wasn't that long ago that Bridgewater's career was in question, but now it looks like he could be starting games before the end of the season. He is worth stashing in dynasty formats.
Posted: 11/9/2017 2:59pm ET
Huddle Up: Bridgewater is expected to be the No. 2 quarterback for now but could take over the starting job if Case Keenum struggles. Owners in deeper leagues could consider adding Bridgewater as a backup quarterback if they have the roster space.

Huddle Up: Bridgewater looks good to go, at least physically. The timing of his return works out perfectly with Sam Bradford going on IR. It's unclear exactly when Bridgewater will start again, though. Be prepared for Case Keenum to start at least one more week. He's been solid in place of Bradford and Bridgewater this year but is not a QB1.

Huddle Up: Bridgewater has missed over a year because of a serious knee injury but has a chance to start at some point before the end of the season. Owners in deeper leagues should keep an eye on the situation because Bridgewater could have some value late in the season.
Posted: 10/24/2017 7:37am ET
Huddle Up: Even if Bridgewater is activated, the question is will he play? Bridgewater may be a good flyer in long-term dynasty leagues, but unless Case Keenum gets hurt or has a bad outing Bridgewater may not see the light of day on a football field.
Posted: 10/18/2017 6:10pm ET
Huddle Up: It's awesome to see Bridgewater back on the field after sustaining a career-threatening injury last summer. It's even better that he apparently picked up where he left off after having what was reportedly a very good practice. While this is a great start for the 24-year-old, owners shouldn't start considering him as a serious fantasy option for at least several more weeks.
Posted: 10/16/2017 11:40am ET
Huddle Up: It's been a long time coming for Bridgewater to return to practice. Case Keenum has filled in splendidly for the most part with both Bridgewater and Sam Bradford out of commission. The Vikings may have a three-way competition at the position on their hands once Bradford and Bridgewater are ready to go. None of them should be considered weekly QB1 options, however.
Posted: 10/16/2017 8:32am ET
Huddle Up: He will probably need a couple of weeks before he is considered ready to play. With Sam Bradford (knee) ailing, there's an opportunity. However, Case Keenum is playing the best ball of his career. Bridgewater is watch-list material right now.
