Jerome Simpson Back From Suspension

The Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Jerome Simpson has served his suspension.  After sitting out the first 3 games of the regular season, Simpson looks to step into the starting line up opposite Percy Harvin.  At 6’2″ and roughly 200 pounds Simpson is a perfect counterpart to the smaller Harvin and should be a fantasy contributor early on. 

Simpson is not worth of a starting Fantasy Football spot, but he’s got an NFL size frame and can work well in the Minnesota system, especially with how well Christian Ponder is playing.  As soon as Ponder and Simpson develope chemistry, expect Simpson to become a versatile deep threat for the Vikings.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Minnesota Vikings Recap

The Jacksonville Jaguars had the opportunity to beat a bad Minnesota team, and they did everything possible to do so, until the final whistle blew.  Rookie kicker for the Vikings, Blair Walsh, crushed a 55 yard field goal (would have been good from 60) to tie the game as time expired.  Blair would then go on to nail the game winning 38 yard kick with just over 11 minutes remaining in the game.
