Alexander Mattison Sees Limited Work In Win

Minnesota Vikings running back Alexander Mattison was pretty much silent in Week 11 as he had just three carries for five yards in a comeback win over the Denver Broncos.

Alexander Mattison Is An RB4 Again In Week 11

Minnesota Vikings running back Alexander Mattison isn't a recommended starting option in Week 11 against the Denver Broncos. Though Mattison is a good bet for 7-10 carries on a weekly basis, the Broncos Defense is really tough against the run and they've only gotten better as the season has worn on. The game plan will...

Vikings Defense Is A Top Play Against Broncos

The Minnesota Vikings Defense has been a consistent unit this season despite lacking upside with just one game over 10 fantasy points back in Week 1.

Kirk Cousins Has Limited Upside In Week 11

Stefon Diggs Is A Borderline WR2/WR3 In Week 11

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs has had an up-and-down season, to say the least. He had a monster three-week span with 453 receiving yards and three touchdowns, but he has also had six games with three catches or less and less than 50 receiving yards. Though Diggs would normally be a top-15 play with... Read More

Kyle Rudolph Is A Touchdown-Dependent TE2 In Week 11

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph has had a nice stretch of games with Adam Thielen (hamstring) out, notching four touchdowns and 19 targets over his last four contests. However, The Broncos Defense has been stout all around this season and that certainly extends to the tight end position. They've only allowed just one tight... Read More

Vikings Defense In A Sneaky Week 10 Spot

The Vikings Defense has been a consistent fantasy option through nine weeks of the season. They rank sixth in fantasy points, sixth in sacks (28), sixth in interceptions (eight), ninth in fumble recoveries (six), and fourth in points allowed per game (17.6). They face off with the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10 and while it's... Read More

Stefon Diggs Is A High-End WR2 In Week 10

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs had a really tough game in Week 9, as he hauled in just one of four targets for four yards in a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Dallas Cowboys and their top-notch pass defense are on tap in Week 10, which is less than ideal for Diggs'... Read More

Dalvin Cook Remains A High-End RB1 Against Cowboys

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook had 116 scrimmage yards and four catches in Week 9, but it was a bit of a disappointing game given the extremely forgiving matchup.

Kirk Cousins Is A Middling QB2 In Week 10

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins threw for 220 yards and three touchdowns in Week 9, giving him a sparkling 13/1 TD/INT ratio over his last five contests. Those games came against below-average defenses; Week 10's road matchup against the Dallas Cowboys is quite a different story. The Cowboys Defense has only allowed exactly one quarterback...

Laquon Treadwell Leads Vikings Receivers In Loss

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Laquon Treadwell caught three of five targets for 58 yards in a tough 26-23 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 9.

Stefon Diggs Shut Down In Week 9

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs caught one of four targets for just four yards in a Week 9 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook carried 21 times for 71 yards in Week 9 against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Olabisi Johnson Has Two Catches And A Score

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Olabisi Johnson caught one of two targets for a four-yard touchdown in Week 9's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Adam Thielen Is Questionable To Return Against Chiefs

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (hamstring) has re-aggravated his injury and is questionable to return in Week 9's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. Thielen only lasted a few possessions before being pulled and didn't catch his only target on a bad throw from Kirk Cousins. It looks like Thielen's day is finished -... Read More

Adam Thielen Is Active For Week 9 Against Chiefs

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen (hamstring) is active for Week 9's contest against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Dan Bailey Is An Attractive Option in Week 9

Minnesota Vikings kicker Dan Bailey has returned to fantasy relevance during a stretch in which the Vikings offense has been firing on all cylinders. Bailey has nailed 85.7% of his field-goal attempts this year and has gone 10-for-10 over his last four games played. With Week 9's matchup against the vulnerable Kansas City Chiefs Defense...

The Chiefs Defense has performed admirably... Read More

Vikings Defense Is Not In A Prime Week 9 Spot

The Minnesota Vikings Defense could be catching a break with 2018 MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes (kneecap) looking likely to miss another week.
