Dan Bailey Is A Sneaky Week 13 Play

Minnesota Vikings kicker Dan Bailey is a solid starting option for Week 13 against the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks have been getting gashed through the air over their last four games, and Kirk Cousins has been among the top passers in the league in that time period. The game has the second-highest expected point total... Read More

Olabisi Johnson Is The Emergency Option

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Olabisi Johnson caught six of nine targets for 35 scoreless yards in Week 12 and has filled in admirably as the No. 2 receiver in Adam Thielen's (hamstring) absence.

Alexander Mattison Shouldn't Be Started In Week 13

Minnesota Vikings running back Alexander Mattison has made a solid impression in his rookie season, but he can't be trusted as a starting fantasy option with his current role in the offense.

Vikings Defense In Tough Spot On Monday

The Minnesota Vikings Defense has been a consistently solid unit this season, but they'll face a very difficult task in Week 13 and if you have a chance to stream a defense with a better matchup, do it.

Kyle Rudolph Could Have Appeal In Week 13

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph has caught 12 of 15 targets for 104 yards and four touchdowns in his last three games played.

Kirk Cousins Is A Low-End QB1 Against Seattle

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins has entered the down-ballot MVP conversation with his recent stretch of stellar play. The NFL's current leader in passer rating, Cousins has also compiled an impressive 18/1 TD/INT ratio over his last seven games and his 70.6% completion rate checks in at fourth in the league. He should be able... Read More

Olabisi Johnson Sees Team-High Nine Targets

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Olabisi Johnson caught six of nine targets for 35 yards in a Week 11 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.

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.

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.
