2014 Outlook: Do Not DraftLast updated on Jun-23-2014 by Rob Warner
Simpson could face a four-game suspension stemming from a November 9th DUI. The 28-year-old is coming off a career year in yardage after hauling in 48 catches for 726 yards (45 YPG) and two touchdowns. He has just eight career touchdowns over his six year career and has failed to average more than 55 YPG in any season. The pending legal troubles make him irrelevant in 12-team leagues. He'll likely be the Vikings' WR3 running on the outside in a Norv Turner-offense (which is known for taking shots down field, although the real question is do the Vikings have QB capable of making those throws).
There's another suspension to cover today. The league has suspended Vikings wide receiver Jerome Simpson three games for violating the league's substance abuse policy. It stems from Simpson's DUI last November.
Simpson was previously suspended three games after pleading guilty to a drug trafficking charge in 2012.
I guess that drug charge fell under a different league policy, because it would make no sense for Simpson to be penalized the same amount of games for multiple violations of the same policy.
Simpson had 48 receptions for 726 yards last year but is only the fourth or fifth target in Minnesota's passing game. He has faint fantasy value.
