While the Jets have fallen badly, the Patriots have picked it up with two stellar offensive showings in the last two weeks. Tom Brady has found his rhythm, while tight end Rob Gronkowski is growing more dangerous each week. Here’s a look at the key players on each side and which players belong in your fantasy line-up.
The Minnesota Vikings listed nine players on the injury report, eight injured players and one non-injury related absence. Sharrif Floyd and Brandon Watts did not participate because of injuries and Adrian Peterson sat out for an undisclosed reason. Mike Harris, Charlie Johnson, Zach Line, Michael Mauti and Xavier Rhodes were limited in practice. Jabari Price was a full participant.
The Minnesota Vikings face the New England Patriots in their home opener of 2014. The Patriots are coming off a disappointing loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 1.

Darrelle Revis had a solid game in his Patriots debut in Miami.

Kyle Rudolph has some of the surest hands in the NFL, with a 6-foot-6, 260-pound frame fit for the type of tight end who can be one of his team’s best passing targets. As long as he plays for the Minnesota Vikings, though, his potential is probably not on track to become the next Tony Gonzalez. No matter how much ability Rudolph has as a receiver, run blocking must be an equally important part of his skill set. “There aren’t very many guys in our game anymore who are doing the run blocking and the pass catching,” Rudolph said.
Studs like Graham and Gronkowski are in a league of their own, but the position offers solid players.
