Here's a look at the Vikings' top fantasy football options for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers:

QB Donovan McNabb looked slow and tired and struggled with his accuracy against the Chargers. His performance — 7-of-15 passing for 39 yards, one touchdown and one interception — tells us to bench him.

RB Adrian Peterson was utilized (rush attempts and targets) 19 times but look for that to change as the offense grows. Remember, you never bench AP. 

WR Percy Harvin was a bust in Week One with four targets for two receptions. However, he was a hit in return leagues with a 103-yard kickoff return. Always play him in that format.

We never saw the Vikings' deep passing attack in Week One as WR Bernard Berrian saw only two targets without making with a reception. Bench him this week.

Despite playing in a TE-friendly offense, Visanthe Shiancoe saw only one target Week One. Bench him until the passing game and his numbers improve.
