Bernard Berrian is Coming On | NFL Fantasy Football Player Rankings
Minnesota Vikings top receiver Bernard Berrian was having a quiet season before last week against the Packers. Sure, he was collecting receptions before that game, but he wasn’t producing any big plays or touchdowns.
The two main reasons to attribute to Berrian’s slow start are for one he had a hamstring problem and Brett Favre was still getting in shape.
With both issues now in the rear view mirror, except Berrian to produce for fantasy football owners.
Big Week On Deck
This week the Vikings’ travel to St. Louis to take on the Rams’ poor defense. So far, the Rams’ defense is 19th against the pass and 27th in points given up.
With Favre now having his arm back in shape for the long ball, I expect the Vikings to feature some aerial opportunities to Berrian.
If the Vikings can make defenses respect the pass down the field, then it will make life easier for Adrian Peterson and the running game.
If there is a weakness in either of these defenses it will be found in the passing game.
Bernard Berrian’s Fantasy Football Ranking
Berrian should be started in all fantasy football leagues at least for this week. If he has another strong showing then you might want to start him every week.
Defenses will always have to respect Peterson and that sets the table for Berrian down the field.
This season has not been a kind one to receivers once again, and if you can find consistent production, it is worth starting.
