Top C.J. Ham News

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Extends tenure in Minnesota

    Ham agreed Wednesday with the Vikings on a two-year contract extension, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Ham has spent the entirety of his seven-year career with the Vikings. While the 29-year-old saw a diminished role within head coach Kevin O'Connell's offense in 2022, he's still one of the more utilized fullbacks in the NFL, playing on both offense and special teams. Ham will look to have a similar role next season and continue to help open up holes for Dalvin Cook and the rest of the run game.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Scores rushing TD

    Ham had one carry for a two-yard touchdown in Sunday's win at Buffalo.

    It was just his second carry of the season and second rushing TD of his career. Ham played on just six of the offense's 80 snaps, as he's had a minimal role under new head coach Kevin O'Connell.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Records two catches Sunday

    Ham hauled in two of three targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 28-24 win over the Lions.

    Though he was only on the field for 11 snaps on offense, Ham had two key receptions on the first of the Vikings' two touchdown drives in the second quarter. With Dalvin Cook (shoulder) uncertain to suit up Week 4 against the Saints, Ham could see a modest uptick in snaps with one less option available out of the backfield. However, the fullback is unlikely to see an appreciable increase in touches as a runner or pass catcher, as Alexander Mattison would step into Cook's three-down lead role if Cook ends up sitting out in New Orleans.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Just three snaps Monday

    Ham played just three snaps on offense in Monday's loss at Philadelphia and didn't get a carry or target.

    The Vikings didn't utilize a fullback when they fell behind early and were forced to pass the ball. Ham hasn't been a fantasy factor with few touches per game in the past, but his role under new head coach Kevin O'Connell could dry up as the team focuses on the passing game.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Smaller role in season debut

    Ham had one reception for six yards on his lone target and did not have a carry in Sunday's win over Green Bay.

    Ham played on just 14 of the offense's 62 snaps. That's less than his average last season (21 snaps per game) despite the Vikings playing with a large lead. He may see a reduced role under new head coach Kevin O'Connell, not that he has been a fantasy factor with few touches per game in the past.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Catches both targets in loss

    Ham caught both of his targets for 13 yards during Sunday's 30-23 loss to the Rams.

    Ham was dealing with a hamstring injury during the week, but he was ultimately active for the contest and was able to play 36 total snaps (20 on offense). On the season, the fullback has totaled 15 catches for 117 yards, but he'll likely remain a fantasy afterthought during Minnesota's divisional showdown with the Packers in Week 17.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Active for Week 16

    Ham (hamstring) is active for Sunday's contest against the Rams.

    Ham tweaked his hamstring during the Vikings' win over the Bears on Monday Night Football, but he is ready to go for Week 16. The fullback doesn't garner much fantasy consideration, but his presence should be a boost to a Minnesota run game that will rely heavily on Alexander Mattison with Dalvin Cook sidelined due to COVID-19 protocols.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Dealing with hamstring issue

    Ham is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams due to a hamstring injury, Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Ham presumably picked up the injury last week against the Bears while catching one pass for three yards on 25 offensive snaps. The Vikings will work without a fullback this weekend if he's unable to play.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Catches lone target

    Ham had a 19-yard reception on his lone target during Sunday's 29-27 loss to the Lions.

    Ham played 25 of 76 offensive snaps and took advantage of his lone touch by rumbling 19 yards during the third quarter. The 28-year-old has seven carries for 34 yards and 12 receptions for 101 yards through 12 games this season, and he doesn't offer any fantasy appeal as a fullback.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Has 30 yards rushing

    Ham had one carry for 30 yards in Sunday's win at Carolina.

    It was just Ham's fifth carry on the season and the second longest run of his career. Ham is almost strictly a blocking fullback in Minnesota's offense, so don't expect many more touches, even with Sunday's success.
