For the first time in his career, Teddy Bridgewater will face off against the team that made him a first-round pick way back in 2014, the Minnesota Vikings. Bridgewater missed last week’s game, but he looks like an acceptable fantasy starter this week.

Fantasy Football analysis: Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater

Bridewater has five passing touchdowns and two interceptions in his last three games. He’s added a rushing score in each of his last two games, in Week 9 and 10. Even though his passing yardage has been up and down, he scores enough to make him a decent fantasy option in most week. This game is no exception.

Minnesota has given up 22 touchdowns to quarterbacks this season, picking them off just eight times. Last week, they let Andy Dalton throw three touchdowns, which is a good sign for Bridgewater. Interestingly enough, the Vikings have not allowed a quarterback to score a rushing touchdown.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

Start Teddy Bridgewater.
