  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: No touches for second straight week

    Ham played 18 of the Vikings' 72 snaps on offense and failed to log a carry or draw a target in the team's 27-20 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.

    The 5-foot-11, 250-pound fullback has now gone without a touch for the second week in a row, though that's not too unexpected after he combined for no carries and only four targets over the first three games of the season. Ham will continue to serve primarily as a blocker whenever he's on the field.

  • Vikings' C.J. Ham: Two receptions in season opener

    Ham had two receptions for seven yards on three targets in Sunday's loss to Tampa Bay.

    Ham played on 22 of the offense's 64 snaps as the Vikings continue to utilize a fullback even with the departure of Dalvin Cook. The three-target tally is considered a heavy volume game for Ham, considering he logged just 12 targets all of last season. Still, he has a limited role in the offense, as he's used almost exclusively as a blocker.

  • 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.
