Vikings re-sign WR Jerome Simpson

The Vikings have handed wide receiver Jerome Simpson @rome081 a one-year deal for the third consecutive year. Simpson registered a career-high 726 receiving yards last season -- one yard more than his total from 2011. He caught 48 passes and scored once.

Fantasy Analysis:

Simpson has outstanding athleticism and deep-threat ability. He is in his physical prime at age 28. It should only help that Norv Turner is his offensive coordinator, and Simpson has familiarity with head coach Mike Zimmer since both spent years together with the Bengals, although Zimmer was a defensive coach.
But no matter how many things are in Simpson's favor, you know he'll find a way to fall short of expectations -- that is, unless you expect him to be nothing more than a WR4/5 in fantasy. In that case, you're right on.
Oh, and Simpson, no stranger to a NFL suspension, will probably be disciplined by the legaue again for pleading guilty to a DWI.
