Olabisi Johnson Hauls In Four Catches Against Giants

Minnesota Vikings rookie wide receiver Olabisi Johnson had his first impactful game as a pro, snagging all four of his targets for 43 yards in Sunday's Week 5 win.

Adam Thielen Explodes For 130 Yards and Two Touchdowns

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen caught 7-of-8 targets for 130 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 5 win over the New York Giants. Thielen was making plays all over the place against the weak Giants secondary and made it look easy on his scores in the first and third quarters. Thielen was critical... Read More

Dalvin Cook Cruises To Giant Week 5 Total

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook had another monster performance in Week 5's road win over the New York Giants. He rushed 21 times for 132 yards (6.3 yards per carry) and caught all six of his targets for 86 yards in the victory. Cook again looked extremely explosive while displaying great vision all game...

Kirk Cousins Posts Useful Week 5 Line In Victory

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins' performance through Week 4 had many fantasy managers writing him off, but he came through in a pretty big way in Week 5 against the New York Giants. Cousins was 22-of-27 (81%) passing for 306 yards and two touchdowns to Adam Thielen in a resounding 28-10 road win. Cousins took... Read More

Vikings Defense Dominates Giants In Week 5

The Vikings remain a... Read More

Adam Thielen Is A Solid WR2 In Week 5

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen profiles as a solid WR2 option in Week 5. The Vikings star receiver was critical of the offense (rightly so) after a frustrating Week 4 loss to the Chicago Bears where he caught 2-of-6 targets for just six yards. Despite Thielen's comments and the team's recent drama, he is... Read More

Vikings Defense Poised For Useful Week 5

The Vikings Defense is in line for a productive Week 5 on the road against the New York Giants. The Giants have rookie quarterback Daniel Jones commanding the offense and he has looked solid, posting a 2-0 record against subpar competition (@TB, vs. WAS). The Vikings have a substantially better defense than the Bucs and... Read More

Kyle Rudolph Should Be Avoided In Week 5

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph is not a recommended play in Week 5 on the road against the New York Giants. Though Rudolph is still playing a high percentage of snaps, he's close to being eclipsed by Irv Smith Jr. in the passing game and has just 32 scoreless receiving yards on seven targets... Read More

Dalvin Cook Remains Top-Tier RB1 In Week 5

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook is a good bet to bounce back and offer elite RB1 value in Week 5. The New York Giants are much more vulnerable against the pass so far this season, but their linebacker core is banged up and Cook is still likely to see at least 20 touches as... Read More

Kirk Cousins Is A Mid-Tier QB2 Against Giants

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins looks to be a decent QB2 option in Week 5. The Vikings will face off with the New York Giants on the road as 4.5-point favorites, so there's a good chance that Cousins will need to throw as long as it stays a close contest. He hasn't played well in... Read More

Tyler Boyd Catches Three Of Six Targets In Loss

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Tyler Boyd caught three of six targets for 33 yards in Week 4's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Boyd was surprisingly held in check despite the plus matchup, and fantasy owners have to be disappointed with the lack of involvement after Boyd saw 12, 10 and 11 targets in the previous...

Joe Mixon Totals 63 Yards As Offense Sputters

Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon carried 15 times for 62 yards (4.1 yards per carry) and hauled in four of five targets for one yard in Monday's 27-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Kyle Rudolph Held To One Catch In Loss

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph hauled in his only target for 12 receiving yards in Week 4's 16-6 loss to the Chicago Bears. Rudolph's lack of involvement through four weeks is beyond concerning as he's racked up a grand total of seven targets, catching five for a mere 32 yards. Rudolph can be safely... Read More

Alexander Mattison Quiet In Week 4 Loss

Minnesota Vikings running back Alexander Mattison rushed two times for five yards in Week 4's loss to the Chicago Bears. He added one catch for eight yards on his only target.

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs caught 7-of-7 targets for 108 yards in a 16-6 loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 4.

Dalvin Cook Productive Despite Offensive Struggles

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook delivered a solid fantasy performance on Sunday, rushing 14 times for 35 yards and a touchdown and catching six-of-eight targets for 35 yards in a 16-6 loss to the Chicago Bears.

Kirk Cousins Posts Empty Week 4 Line

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 27-of-36 passes for 233 yards in Sunday's 16-6 loss to the Chicago Bears.

Irv Smith Jr. Flashes Potential In Rout

Minnesota Vikings tight end Irv Smith Jr. caught three of three targets for 60 yards in a dominating Week 3 win over the Oakland Raiders. Smith also had a big play called back due to a penalty in the contest, and it's already crystal clear that the athletic rookie is a far superior receiver to... Read More

Dan Bailey Hits Two Field Goals In Week 3

Minnesota Vikings kicker Dan Bailey had a productive outing in Week 3's 34-14 win over the Raiders, nailing field goals from 24 and 50 yards in addition to going 4-for-4 on extra-point attempts. It was an encouraging performance from the nine-year veteran after missing an extra-point attempt and a 47-yarder in Green Bay in Week... Read More

Chad Beebe Carted To Locker Room

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Chad Beebe (ankle) was carted to the locker room in the third quarter of Sunday's 34-14 win over the Oakland Raiders. Beebe didn't have a target in the contest.

Minnesota Vikings Defense Puts Up Four Sacks

The Minnesota Vikings Defense shut down the Oakland Raiders en route to a 34-14 win at home in Week 3. They picked up four sacks and an interception, though they also gave up a garbage-time touchdown with two minutes left and fantasy managers probably wanted a few more turnovers in this favorable matchup. Start the... Read More

Alexander Mattison Notches First Career Touchdown

Minnesota Vikings rookie running back Alexander Mattison rushed 12 times for 58 yards (4.8 YPC) and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-14 win over the Oakland Raiders. His first NFL touchdown came on an impressive 10-yard run in the third quarter, and Mattison has proven to be a rock-solid backup to starter Dalvin Cook through three... Read More

Stefon Diggs Stymied On Sunday

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs was quiet on Sunday, catching 3-of-3 targets for just 15 yards in the 34-14 win. Diggs was a victim of game script as the Vikings jumped out to an early 21-0 lead and leaned on the run game for most of the contest. The low volume is officially a... Read More

Adam Thielen Totals Two Touchdowns In Week 3

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen hauled in 3-of-5 targets for 55 yards and a touchdown on Sunday, tacking on a one-yard rushing touchdown for good measure. Thielen hauled in a 35-yard touchdown from Kirk Cousins in the first quarter and surprised the entire Raiders Defense by taking a sneaky end-around in for a goal-line... Read More

Kirk Cousins Throws One Touchdown In Win

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 15-of-21 passes for 174 yards and a first-quarter touchdown to Adam Thielen in Sunday's 34-14 win. Cousins again wasn't asked to do much as the rushing attack and defense took control of the game early and never let go. Cousins did look much better against the Raiders bottom-tier defense,...

Dalvin Cook Notches Third Straight 100-Yard Game

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook rushed 16 times for 110 yards and a touchdown in a 34-14 route over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. Cook also caught 4-of-5 targets for 33 yards in the contest. He would have had an even bigger day if not for Alexander Mattison and receiver Adam Thielen vulturing rushing... Read More

Kyle Rudolph Is Unexciting Week 3 Option

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph has caught 3-of-6 targets for nine receiving yards through two weeks. He has fallen into the touchdown-dependent desperation-play territory as he just isn't seeing enough usage to be fantasy-relevant. The Vikings are big favorites (-9) at home, so it seems likely that Rudolph will be run-blocking much more often... Read More
