Simpson's longest reception went for 47 yards, and he led the team in targets, as his eight were one more than Greg Jennings' seven.
Fantasy impact: After only gaining 274 receiving yards all of last season, Simpson got more than halfway there in only one game Sunday. On a receiving corps that also features Jennings, Kyle Rudolph, Cordarrelle Patterson and the always-doing-things Adrian Peterson, the Vikings only really need a better quarterback.
Even with Christian Ponder doing the job, there's no reason to think this is a total fluke from Simpson. He won't get 140 every week, but he has crazy athleticism, and he should be at least a flex option most weeks.
