  • Vikings Defense Signing Todd Davis

    The Minnesota Vikings are signing former Denver Broncos linebacker Todd Davis to a one-year deal on Thursday, according to a source. It'll give the Vikings some depth at the position following the season-ending injury to Anthony Barr (pectoral). Davis had two straight seasons of 100-plus tackles in Denver, so he could really help the Vikings make up for Barr's absence. However, with the Vikings getting trampled both on the ground and through the air through two weeks, you can continue avoiding them in fantasy football, especially with the Titans on the scheduled this weekend.

  • Dalvin Cook Maintains RB1 Value Against Titans

    Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook will be an X-factor Sunday against the Titans in Week 3. Minnesota is 0-2 and absolutely need a victory against a Titans Defense that is allowing the 14th most fantasy points through two games. Cook has been held in check from a rushing yards perspective but already has three touchdowns on the season. The Titans have already allowed 10-plus fantasy points to three different running backs this season, setting up Cook to post RB1 numbers in Week 3.

  • Justin Jefferson Hopes To Expand Role

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson will try and continue his maturation Week 3 against the Titans. Jefferson caught three passes for 44 yards last week as he continues to slowly earn the team's trust within the offense. He will go up against a talented Titans Defense as the rookie continues to battle for targets with teammate Bisi Johnson. The Vikings offense is under the microscope to perform and Jefferson is hoping he can be one of the solutions. Despite his slow uptick in production, Jefferson is far from being fantasy viable at this point heading into Week 3.

  • Adam Thielen Has Lukewarm Week 3 Matchup

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen will try and get back on the right track in Week 3 against the Titans. After a promising Week 1, Thielen caught only three passes for 31 yards and the Vikings offense imploded against the Colts. The Vikings will now go up against a Titans Defense that has allowed the 15th most fantasy points to opposing receivers and have not allowed more than 84 yards to a receiver. The Vikings season already is on the line and will need to feature Thielen to achieve success. The veteran receiver will carry WR1 value, albeit with a low floor, in Week 3.

  • Can Kirk Cousins Turn His Season Around?

    Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins will try and bounce back from a horrific Week 2 performance this week against the Titans. Cousins posted, perhaps, one of his worst statistical lines of his career last week, completing only 11-of-26 passes for 113 yards and three interceptions. The veteran passer already has four interceptions on the season and will go up against a Titans Defense that is allowing the 18th most fantasy points to passers through two games. The Vikings are 0-2 and need a win desperately and their success in Week 3 will be tied to the play of Cousins. Until he can prove otherwise, Cousins should be a fantasy stay-away against the Titans.

  • Anthony Barr Suffers Torn Pectoral Muscle

    Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer said that linebacker Anthony Barr (pectoral) suffered a torn pectoral muscle in the Week 2 loss to the Colts and will be placed on Injured Reserve. The first-round pick out of UCLA in 2014 didn't accumulate any stats on Sunday before suffering the injury, one that will keep him out for the rest of the 2020 season. The Vikings are already reeling at 0-2 to start the season with losses to the Packers and Colts, and their defense can't be trusted right now in fantasy leagues, especially after losing Barr in the middle of the field.

  • Justin Jefferson Leads Vikings With 44 Receiving Yards

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson caught three passes for 44 yards in the Vikings Week 2 loss to the Colts 28-11. In a game where the Vikings offense could get nothing going, it was nice to see the first-round pick make some plays. He posted a nice reception for 22 yards as he increased his snap-count from Week 1. Jefferson's fantasy value is reserved for deeper, dynasty-driven leagues until the Vikings passing offense can show more signs of life.

  • Adam Thielen Held To 31 Yards In Brutal Loss

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen caught three passes for 31 yards in the Vikings 28-11 loss to the Colts. Thielen led the team with eight targets on a day when quarterback Kirk Cousins played extremely poorly. Thielen is an unquestioned WR1 in fantasy but the Vikings offense has plenty of work to do. The talented receiver will try and get back on track in Week 3 against the Titans.

  • Dalvin Cook Salvages Week 2 With Touchdown

    Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook carried the ball 14 times for 63 yards and one touchdown in the Vikings 28-11 loss to the Colts. It was a terrible offensive effort for the Vikings, who simply could not get the passing game going. Cook was able to punch in a three-yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter to post a solid, unspectacular, final fantasy line. Cook and the Vikings will try and get their season on track in Week 3 against the Vikings,

  • Kirk Cousins Drops A Dud Against Colts

    Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 11-of-26 passes for only 113 yards and three interceptions in the Vikings 28-11 loss to the Colts in Week 2. The Vikings are now 0-2 and Cousins endured one of the worst games of his career. He was sacked for a safety, was under duress for most of the game and was wildly off on some throws. The veteran passer was off-target on multiple occasions with star receiver Adam Thielen and the Vikings are searching for answers through two games. Cousins will try and bounce back in Week 3 against the Titans.

  • Kyle Rudolph Off The Fantasy Radar

    Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph will go up against a Colts Defense in Week 2 that allowed the 11th-most fantasy points to tight ends in 2019. Rudolph caught only two passes for 28 yards in the opener and really has faded into the background on offense the past few seasons. Rudolph posted only 367 yards in 2019 and no longer is a featured player in the Vikings passing attack. The veteran tight end is not fantasy viable as a TE1 heading into Week 2.

  • Justin Jefferson Waiting His Turn

    Minnesota Vikings rookie wide receiver Justin Jefferson will look to build off his NFL debut in Week 2 against the Colts. Jefferson caught two passes for 26 yards against the Packers and was slotted in the Vikings offense as the third receiver. The Colts allowed three touchdown passes to receivers in Week 1, but Jefferson is still learning the ropes offensively. Jefferson has plenty of talent and could have fantasy value at some point this season, but for now, he should ride the fantasy bench in Week 2 in standard-size leagues.

  • Hard To Trust Bisi Johnson Week 2

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Bisi Johnson did enough to secure his role in Week 1 as the No. 2 receiver heading into the team's matchup against the Colts. Johnson caught three passes for 56 yards to open the season and now will face a Colts Defense that allowed touchdowns to secondary receivers on the Jaguars in Week 1. Despite the starting role, it is hard to trust Johnson from a fantasy perspective with teammate Adam Thielen soaking up all the targets on the other side of the field. Johnson could be worth a spot on fantasy rosters in deeper leagues, but is hard to trust in starting lineups for Week 2.

  • Adam Thielen Ready To Keep It Rolling In Week 2

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen enjoyed a fantastic Week 1 and will look to keep it going against the Colts in Week 2. Thielen caught six passes for 110 yards and two touchdowns against the Packers and now will face a Colts Defense that was put on its heels, at times, against the Jaguars last week. Thielen is the unquestionable number one target for quarterback Kirk Cousins and the veteran receiver will need a strong performance if the Vikings hope to pick up their first win of the season. Thielen will be a top-8 selection among wide receivers heading into Week 2.

  • Dalvin Cook An Easy RB1 Choice Against Colts

    Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook will look to build off a solid, if unspectacular, Week 1 performance against the Packers this week against the Colts. Cook racked up only 50 rushing yards but punched in two touchdowns in the season opener. Cook can break loose at any moment but will go up against a Colts Defense that allowed only three rushing touchdowns to opposing backs last season. Look for Cook to exceed the 12 touches he saw in Week 1, and he should be in line to post RB1 numbers in Week 2.

  • Kirk Cousins Poised For Favorable Week 2 Matchup

    Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins will try and get his season going against the Colts in Week 2. Cousins was solid in Week 1, passing for 259 yards with two touchdown and one interception as the Packers blew the doors off the Vikings. Now Cousins will face a Colts team that allowed three passing touchdowns to Jaguars passer Gardner Minshew and a defensive unit that allowed 29 passing touchdowns last season. Cousins can be a frustrating fantasy asset but has an opportunity to post top-12 fantasy numbers among quarterbacks for Week 2.
