CB - ATL
Week 14 Outlook
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that CB Mike Hughes has been traded to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Chiefs are sending their 2022 sixth-round pick to the Vikings in return for Hughes and their 2022 seventh-round pick. Hughes only started two games this season. He did not record any interceptions and had nine tackles on the season. Chiefs wanted to add CB depth and Hughes will look to bounce back in Kansas City.
Minnesota Vikings CB Mike Hughes will not have his fifth-year option picked up by the team, per Ian Rapoport.
Hughes has dealt with significant injuries throughout his tenure in Minnesota, playing in just four games during the 2020 season. The cornerback out of UCF enters his fourth year in Minnesota with just 80 tackles, 13 pass deflections, and two interceptions as his career totals. Vikings' head coach Mike Zimmer signed free-agent and former Arizona Cardinals All-Pro cornerback Patrick Peterson during free agency to add experience and strengthen one of the league's worst defensive units from a year ago. Minnesota wound up allowing 258.8 passing yards per game in 2020, ranking eighth-worst in the league.
Mike Hughes (neck) didn't participate practice on Friday.
Hughes has not practiced all week and is danger of missing Sunday's Week 3 contest against the Titans. The Vikings defense has struggled this season, but the team could be without their top two corners on Sunday. Keep an eye on the inactive list once it's announced Sunday morning.
Mike Hughes racked up seven solo tackles during Sunday’s 28-24 win over the Dallas Cowboys.
Hughes started for Trae Waynes (personal) and put in a solid effort. He can be left on waivers in most leagues but is worth remembering in deeper dynasty formats as a potential late-season add.
The Minnesota Vikings have placed rookie first-round pick CB Mike Hughes on injured reserve with a torn ACL, suffered during the Vikings' Week 6 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.
Hughes, one of the best corners in the 2018 draft, was playing well in Minnesota's defense. Opposing offenses might have an easier time picking on his replacement, which will likely be some combination of three players on the active roster: (1) Mackensie Alexander, (2) Jayron Kearse, or (3) rookie Holton Hill.
