8/29/2014 11:49:00 AM
Description: Vikings receiver Jerome Simpson has been suspended for three games for a last November DUI arrest.
Insight: Simpson isn't likely on fantasy radar screens as he's fallen to No. 4 on the Minnesota depth chart behind Cordarrelle Patterson, Greg Jennings, and Jarius Wright. he had 48 receptions for 726 yards and one touchdowns last season.
 
11/9/2013 11:51:00 AM
Description: Vikings receiver Jerome Simpson was arrested on a misdemeanor DWI charge Saturday morning after refusing a breathalyzer, according to USA Today.
Insight: Hennepin County Jail records show Simpson was booked at 5:39 a.m. CT Saturday. The 27-year-old is on a 36-hour hold because it's the weekend. Simpson served a three-game suspension last season after pleading guilty to a felony drug charge in April 2012 and is on probation. He has 491 yards and no touchdowns on 33 catches this season.
 
9/29/2013 5:39:00 PM
Description: Vikings receiver Jerome Simpson pulled down seven catches for 124 yards on 11 targets Sunday against the Steelers.
Insight: Simpson has been inconsistent, catching five passes for 78 yards combined in games two and three and 14 passes for 264 yards in games one and four. He's averaging 85.5 receiving yards per game, but we don't have any confidence that he'll be a week-to-week starting option.
 
3/12/2013 3:40:00 PM
Description: The Vikings have re-signed Jerome Simpson to a one-year contract.
Insight: At this moment Simpson is Minnesota's No. 1 receiver after Percy Harvin was traded to Seattle. He had just 274 yards and zero touchdowns in 12 games last season.
 
1/10/2013 4:18:00 PM
Description: Vikings general manager Rick Spielman is hoping the team will be able to retain wide receiver Jerome Simpson in free agency.
Insight: You probably remember Simpson for his absurd touchdown flip that was No. 1 on the SportsCenter Top 10 for about a year. The flip was pretty spectacular but aside from that, Simpson hasn't accomplished all that much in his four NFL seasons (1,278 yards on 97 catches). It's possible Simpson could play a larger role in the Minnesota offense if disgruntled wideout Percy Harvin asks for a trade but we're not too optimistic.
 
10/17/2012 5:47:00 PM
Description: Minnesota wideout Jerome Simpson said he's certain he'll return to action Sunday against the Cardinals, according to 1500 ESPN Twin Cities. However, Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said Simpson must display that his back problem is behind him.
Insight: Simpson missed last week's game against the Redskins. The receiver has an added incentive to play since he loses part of his roster bonus every game he's not on the game day roster. "You lose 60 thousand dollars, you'd be mad too," Simpson said. Simpson has been dealing with a back injury that has caused numbness and weakness in the lower part of one of the receiver's legs.
 
10/12/2012 3:40:00 PM
Description: Minnesota wideout Jerome Simpson was limited during Friday's practice and he'll likely be a game-time decision.
Insight: Too bad Simpson is hurting with a matchup against the Redskins' porous defense which has allowed 1,643 passing yards in five games. Percy Harvin is still the only Vikings receiver worthy of everyday fantasy status.
 
10/9/2012 10:30:00 PM
Description: Minnesota wideout Jerome Simpson could have an issue with a disc in his back that is causing weakness and numbness in one of his legs, according to 1500 ESPN Twin Cities.
Insight: Simpson had an MRI Tuesday that revealed the back issue. The team will pursue nonsurgical options but may have to opt for microdiscectomy surgery that would sideline Simpson for six weeks. We doubt he'll play this Sunday, even if he is able to avoid surgery.
 
10/9/2012 12:10:00 PM
Description: Minnesota wideout Jerome Simpson will have an MRI on Monday to see why he was forced out of Sunday's game due to leg weakness. The results apparently focus on a back problem, according to a Judd Zulgad report.
Insight: Simpson had four catches for 50 yards in Week 4, his first game back, after serving a three-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. We were expecting a good game from him against a vulnerable Titans pass defense, but at least we now know why he wasn't on the field for much of the game.
 
10/8/2012 1:58:00 PM
Description: Minnesota wideout Jerome Simpson will have an MRI on Monday to see why he was forced out of Sunday's game due to leg weakness. He was held without a catch.
Insight: Simpson had four catches for 50 yards in Week 4, his first game back, after serving a three-game suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. We were expecting good from him against a vulnerable Titans pass defense.
 
9/26/2012 1:53:00 PM
Description: Minnesota's newly acquired wideout Jerome Simpson, who was been suspended for the first three games of the 2012 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy, will be part of the game plan in Week 4, says coach Leslie Frazier.
Insight: Simpson had 50 catches last season for 725 yards and four touchdowns. Simpson, Harvin and tight end Kyle Rudolph should provide an athletic receiving combination for quarterback Christian Ponder.
 
6/11/2012 4:33:00 PM
Description: Minnesota's newly acquired wideout Jerome Simpson has been suspended and will miss the first three games of the 2012 season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Insight: He is eligible to participate in training camp and preseason games, so should be ready to help the team in Week 4. Simpson had 50 catches last season for 725 yards and four touchdowns. When together, Simpson and Harvin should provide an athletic receiving combination for Christian Ponder.
 
9/22/2011 9:31:00 AM
Description: A package containing 2.5 pounds of California marijuana was allegedly delivered to Jerome Simpson's home Tuesday, according to authorities. Source: Cincinnati Enquirer
Insight: According to the report, During the search, officers found about 6 more pounds of pot, Gregory said, which was seized along with related items such as 'packaging materials, scales and smoking devices.' Charges could be filed later on today.
 
1/3/2011 4:03:00 PM
Description: Simpson caught 12 passes for 123 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Ravens.
Insight: Heading into Week 16, Simpson had three catches for 32 yards through nearly three years in the NFL. In the final two games, he racked up 18 receptions, 247 yards and three touchdowns. Let's say he has earned a slightly bigger role in 2011. (RapidDraft.com)
 
1/1/2011 9:05:00 PM
Description: Simpson will start his second straight game for the Bengals this weekend, with Chad Ochocinco out again because of an ankle injury.
Insight: Simpson was a revelation last week in a tough matchup with a Chargers team that still had a shot at the playoffs. One game doesn't make him for real, but Simpson is at least worth a shot in Week 17. (RapidDraft.com)
 
6/23/2010 7:49:00 PM
Description: Despite his strongest spring to date, Jerome Simpson is still lacking consistency with his route running and hands.
Insight: Simpson will need to step things up in order to get any playing time. With Matt Jones also vying for a spot, there isn?t a lot of opportunity left. (SportsBuff.com)
 
5/25/2010 8:26:00 PM
Description: Jerome Simpson is drawing "rave reviews" from Carson Palmer and offensive coordinator Bob Bradkowski this offseason.
Insight: With Chad Ochocinco and Antonio Bryant taking most of the focus, there aren't going to be many more passes to divvy up. Still, if Simpson earns the third receiver role, he could make some waves in deeper fantasy leagues. (SportsBuff.com)
 
1/12/2010 8:48:00 AM
Description: According to NFL.com, training camp will be a huge indicator on whether Simpson will have a role in the Bengals' offense.
Insight: Simpson has only one catch for two yards over the past two seasons and really needs to impress to make the team. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Cold7/26/2009 12:08:00 AM
Description: Pro Football Weekly reports that Simpson is in a fight just to make the Bengals' roster.
Insight: The 2008 second-round pick was viewed as a questionable selection because of very raw skills and lower-level college background. The Bengals have to be disappointed with their return on investment so far. (SportsBuff.com)
 
Cold6/20/2009 3:58:00 PM
Description: ESPN reports that Simpson continues to look raw in off-season workouts.
Insight: It looks like the questions that arose when the Bengals drafted him in the second round last year were valid. If a receiver can't even look good in shorts and T-shirts, it doesn't bode well for the season. (SportsBuff.com)
