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

Head coach Leslie Frazier said this past week that QB Donovan McNabb isn't in danger of losing his job. Not so for fantasy owners, as McNabb has one TD pass in two games. Dump him now. You can always pick him up later.

WR Bernard Berrian, who has only six targets and one catch for 17 yards, might be done. When a receiver loses his wheels, it's downhill fast and it has been that way for a while now. 

Look for WR Percy Harvin to see more touches as the team looks to increase his role. Harvin is disappointing so far, averaging 4.5 catches for 41.5 receiving yards (on six targets per game) with three rushing attempts for 16.5 yards per game.

Once-reliable TE Visanthe Shiancoe is gone. He has eight targets in two weeks with three catches for 28 yards. Until the offense improves, you can find better choices. Drop him.

So much for the great ending to camp that rookie TE Kyle Rudolph had. He has seen only two targets, with one catch for 15 yards. He's not even worth being on a fantasy player watch list.
