The Minnesota Vikings will not field many fantasy football superstars in 2012, but they will offer owners some key role players who will get teams over the hump throughout the season.
It seemed only yesterday when players like Adrian Peterson, Brett Favre, Sidney Rice and the Vikings D/ST were admirable additions to any fantasy team, but those days have come and gone. After an abysmal 2011 campaign, the Vikings will rebound in 2012 but likely won't be on many people's radars as far as fantasy football goes.
The Vikings aren't going to be a team to put up big numbers and blow other teams away statistically. If they are winning games, which they most certainly can, they'll be grinding out close games and taking it to the wire.
All that aside, there are a few Vikings who can offer fantasy value out of the draft—and even more who might populate waiver wires as the season goes on.
Here's a look at Vikings who can make a fantasy football impact in 2012.
