Vikings- Lions: Sidney Rice Has Over 200 Yards | NFL Fantasy Football Rankings

Vikings vs. Lions

The Vikings put the Lions away early in the fourth quarter as Brett Favre threw for over 340 yards passing. Not only did Favre have a strong game but Sidney Rice and Adrian Peterson had big games.

Rice and Peterson Dominate

It’s time to say that Sidney Rice is the true No. 1 receiver for the Vikings this season. The third year receiver is having a breakout season, and today he caught seven passes for 201 yards. This now gives Rice 786 yards receiving on the season already.

Start Rice every week from here on out and expect him to help you the rest of the way. Rice is a solid No.2 receiver for fantasy football teams going forward.

Vikings vs. Lions

Running back Adrian Peterson got things going this week as he posted 133 yards rushing and two touchdowns.

Fantasy owners wanted to see Peterson get his production going again as he had a slow couple weeks against the Steelers and Packers.

Look for Peterson to put up a huge second half of the season and lead teams to the fantasy football playoffs.

Stafford and Johnson Look Off

Rookie Quarterback Matthew Stafford had one nice drive for a touchdown pass but that was about it in this one. Most of the game Stafford was harassed by the Vikings and was hit often after his throws.

Calvin Johnson had a better game statistically than last week against the Seahawks but he clearly looks out of rhythm right now.

Next week the Lions will face the Cleveland Browns, and I expect Johnson and Stafford to have much more success in that game.
