2012 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-inLast updated on Aug-17-2012 by Rob Warner
Carlson signed one of the bigger head scratching free agent contracts when the Vikings inked him to a five-year, $25 million deal. He missed the entire 2011 season with a torn labrum in his shoulder, but is fully expected to be 100% healthy for the 2012 season. The Vikings will employ multiple 2-TE sets which could give Carlson some relevance in deeper leagues. In three seasons with Seattle (2008-2010), the Notre Dame product has averaged just 32 YPG. He did post 7 TDs in 2009 and has 13 touchdowns on his career. With Kyle Rudolph penciled in as the starting TE, Carlson is nothing more than a BYE week fill in.
UPDATE (August 1st): Carlson suffered a grade 2 MCL sprain and is expected to miss 2-4 weeks putting his status for week 1 in jeopardy.
