Josh Doctson waived by Vikings

The Vikings waived wide receiver Josh Doctson.

Fantasy Impact

Doctson played just 11 snaps in Week 11 for Minnesota. The former first round pick will now look elsewhere for a job. His departure is likely a signal that Adam Thielen (hamstring) is ready to return.

Josh Doctson (leg) designated to return from IR

The Minnesota Vikings have designated Josh Doctson to return from injured reserve.

Fantasy Impact

Josh Doctson will begin practicing today and could provide a solid red zone weapon for a quarterback he already has a rapport with in Kirk Cousins. Doctson is unlikely to play his way into fantasy relevance in season long leagues, but may be worth a matchup based look in DFS contests once he returns. He will be the number three receiver at best on a run heavy team.

Josh Doctson headed to injured reserve, could be a candidate to return

Vikings wide receiver Josh Doctson is being placed on injured reserve with a leg injury, according to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport. He is a candidate to return later in the season.

Fantasy Impact

The leg injury is likely the hamstring issue that Doctson has been dealing with lately, and the move to injured reserve gives him time to heal while also getting acclimated with a new playbook after just signing with Minnesota a week ago. He is unlikely to be relevant in most fantasy formats this season, but he is a former first round pick of Washington who some in the league still believe has some potential.

Josh Doctson limited with hamstring injury

Newly acquired Vikings receiver Josh Doctson was inactive for Week 1 and is listed on the injury report with a hamstring issue.

Fantasy Impact

Josh Doctson has an opportunity to unseat Chad Beebe as the Vikings number three receiver. However, if the Vikings continue to employ run heavy game plans the third receiver role may not lend itself to fantasy relevance. Doctson is nothing more than an end of the bench flier in ocean deep leagues. His preexisting chemistry with quarterback Kirk Cousins could make him a red zone favorite over the second half of he season.

Josh Doctson inactive for Week 1

Recently acquired wide receiver Josh Doctson will be inactive for Week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Josh Doctson projects to eventually figure into the mix for third receiver duties in Minnesota, but is inactive for Week 1. Stefon Diggs being ruled active means the Vikings will not have to throw Doctson into the fire without first having a firm grasp on the playbook. His absence means Chad Beebe should have a chance to establish himself as the teams best option as the third receiver for three-wide sets.
