Kyle Rudolph Shows Up In Big Way

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph had himself a career-best type of performance on Sunday, hauling in 9-of-9 targets for 122 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-9 win over the Detroit Lions. He set personal season-highs in catches, receiving yards, and touchdowns in the game. His first touchdown came on a momentum-swinging play, leaping... Read More

Dalvin Cook Posts Useful Line In Win

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook had another productive outing on Sunday, rushing 16 times for 73 yards and adding three catches on three targets for 35 receiving yards in the 27-9 win over the Detroit Lions. As with the entire offense, Cook started this game slowly as the Lions kicked field goals and the... Read More

Kirk Cousins Shreds Lions

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 21-of-28 passes for 253 yards and three touchdowns against the Detroit Lions in Week 16. The Vikings struggled to move the ball until exploding for 14 points with just minutes left in the first half, thanks in part to a end-of-half successful Hail Mary to tight end Kyle Rudolph....

Kyle Rudolph Has Another Rough Outing

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph didn't do much of anything on Sunday afternoon against the New England Patriots, hauling in all three of his targets for 38 yards. He did have a spectacular catch over Patrick Chung - unfortunately style points don't count for anything in fantasy football. Aside from his seven catches for... Read More

Adam Thielen Saves Day With Touchdown

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen hauled in just five of 10 targets for 28 yards in Week 13 against the New England Patriots, though he did save his fantasy day with a five-yard touchdown at the end of the first half. He, along with the Vikings offense as a whole, just seemed out-of-sync all... Read More

Stefon Diggs Posts Pedestrian Line

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs caught each of his five targets for 49 yards in Week 13's loss to the New England Patriots. Though he caught all of his targets, quarterback Kirk Cousins just couldn't look his way often due to great coverage by top-rated defensive back Stephon Gilmore. Though Diggs was a game-time...

Latavius Murray Has Minimal Impact

Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray has seen his role steadily decrease as Dalvin Cook has gotten healthier, and this week represented another step back for him in the loss to the Patriots. He rushed four times for just 11 yards and reeled in 2-of-3 targets for three yards. Cook is the more talented and... Read More

Dalvin Cook Productive in Loss

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook rushed for 84 yards on nine carries (9.3 yards per carry) in Week 13's loss to the New England Patriots. He also caught 8-of-10 targets for 22 yards, with the eight catches representing a new career-high for the second-year back. Cook showed off his quick burst and playmaking ability... Read More

Kirk Cousins Disappoints Versus Patriots

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins had a rough outing on Sunday afternoon against the Patriots, completing 32 of 44 passes for 201 yards and one touchdown with two interceptions. Though he was coming off of a great performance against the Packers in Week 12, Cousins failed to capitalize in a favorable matchup as he averaged... Read More

C.J. Uzomah Tough Sell Against Saints

C.J Uzomah could see increased targets with A.J. Green sidelined against the Saints, but his recent track record and the Saints ability to shut down opposing tight end's give some reason for concern. Uzomah has two or fewer catches in three of the four games that he's been the primary tight end, and he has... Read More

John Ross Is A Viable Dart-Throw

John Ross may be hard to trust as he has missed three of his last four games due to injury, but he has a really nice matchup on tap and not all of Green's 9.5 targets/game will be heading Tyler Boyd's way. New Orleans ranks dead last in yards per target to opposing wide receivers... Read More

Tyler Boyd Set For Increased Opportunities

With A.J. Green sidelined, emerging stud Tyler Boyd will take over as the lead receiver in the Bengals offense. When Green left the game back in Week 3, Boyd exploded for six catches, 132 yards, and a touchdown. Green's 9.5 targets are up for grabs, and Dalton will surely be looking to Boyd as the...

Joe Mixon Faces Stiff Test Versus Saints

Joe Mixon is in the small group of running backs with a guaranteed workload, as evidenced by his 20.7 touches per game (fifth among RB's). However, his recent lack of receiving usage, the return of Giovani Bernard, and a really tough matchup against the Saints all serve to slightly downgrade his fantasy outlook this week.... Read More

Andy Dalton QB2 Without Top Weapon

Though the matchup against the New Orleans Saints is a good one, Dalton can't be trusted as anything more than a QB2 in Week 10. A.J. Green will miss the contest, and Dalton has been a top-12 quarterback in just 4-of-11 games without his top weapon and holds a 11/10 touchdown-to-interception ratio in those games... Read More

Rookie Running Back Overview, ROS Outlook

It's been said before and I'll say it again - rookie running backs can play a very significant role when it comes to fantasy fortunes. Kareem Hunt (2017) and Ezekiel Elliot (2016) are the recent examples, while the Saquon Barkley breakout of 2018 has taken absolutely no one by surprise. Prior to this season, I... Read More

Laquon Treadwell Predictably Disappoints

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Laquon Treadwell had yet another nondescript fantasy day on Sunday in the Minnesota Vikings 23-21 road win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Treadwell hauled in 3-of-4 targets for just 21 yards while seeing 30-of-62 (48%) offensive snaps. Fellow receivers Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs commanded 10 and 11 targets, respectively, and will...

Dawel Lugo Launches First Career Homer

Detroit Tigers second baseman Dawel Lugo made his first career MLB home run count. Pinch-hitting for Harold Castro in the top of the eighth inning, Lugo faced off against bullpen phenom Josh Hader with one man on base, no outs, and down by two runs. In a 3-2 count against one of the premier arms... Read More

Jordan Zimmermann Knocked Around By Brewers

Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Jordan Zimmermann has had a bit of an issue with the long ball this year (1.9 HR/9), and that problem cropped up again in a 5-4 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday. Zimmermann went four innings, gave up four runs on eight hits, and struck out four while walking two... Read More

Kirk Cousins Shines Despite Loss

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 36-of-50 passing attempts for 422 yards and three touchdowns on Thursday night, tacking on 28 rushing yards on four attempts. In a night where the Vikings played from behind all game and eventually fell to the Los Angeles Rams 38-31, Cousins actually led the team in rushing yards. He... Read More

Latavius Murray Disappoints Again

Minnesota Vikings running back Latavius Murray ran for just two yards on two carries in the Vikings loss to the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday night. Though starting running back Dalvin Cook was on a "pitch count" and the Vikings were playing from behind all game, Murray only saw two targets in the passing game... Read More

Aldrick Robinson Catches Two Touchdowns

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Aldrick Robinson caught his only two targets of the night from Kirk Cousins, turning them into 33 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the 38-31 Vikings loss. Robinson just signed with the team on September 17, but he is already showing nice chemistry with his former quarterback on the Redskins. However,... Read More

Daniel Norris Leaves With Left Leg Cramping

Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Daniel Norris left Saturday's game against the New York Yankees after experiencing "left leg cramping" in the fourth inning. Norris, who was activated off the 60-day disabled list for today's start, was actually putting together a nice start before exiting the game. He went 4 1/3 innings, giving up just two... Read More

Vikings Expected To Release Kendall Wright

The Minnesota Vikings are expected to release wide receiver Kendall Wright, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Wright signed a 1-year deal in March with just $300K guaranteed, but the Vikings are opting to go young with Laquon Treadwell, Stacey Coley, and Brandon Zylstra rounding out the receiving core behind Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen....
