  • Nick Mullens Replacing Joshua Dobbs As Vikings Starting Quarterback

    Headshot for Joshua Dobbs

    The Minnesota Vikings are making a change at quarterback, with Nick Mullens replacing Joshua Dobbs under center for the Week 15 contest against the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday, according to sources. Mullens replaced the struggling Dobbs in the fourth quarter of Week 14's 3-0 win over the Las Vegas Raiders and has 17 career NFL starts under his belt. He also knows the Vikings system and is fully healthy after being on Injured Reserve in October. The 28-year-old went 9-for-13 for 83 yards and led the Vikings on their only scoring drive of the game on Sunday. Mullens has experience, but Saturday will be his first start since 2021 and he isn't going to have much fantasy upside at all against Cincinnati on the road. At best, he'll be a low-end streamer in two-QB formats in Week 15.

  • Vikings To Make Decision On Quarterback Later In The Week

    Headshot for Joshua Dobbs

    Minnesota Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell said that the team's decision on the starting quarterback will be made later in the week as they prepare to take on the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 15 on Saturday. Minnesota considered benching Joshua Dobbs going into their Week 13 bye but stuck with him in the Week 14 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders for three quarters before benching him in favor of Nick Mullens after Dobbs went 10-for-23 for just 63 yards in the eventual 3-0 win. Mullens went 9-for-13 for 83 yards and led the team to the lone scoring drive in the entire game. With how badly Dobbs has played in his last two starts, it would be a surprise if the Vikes didn't turn to Mullens at this point. Mullens may be better at avoiding turnovers, but his ceiling won't be much higher as a low-end QB2 option in superflex fantasy leagues.

  • Joshua Dobbs Struggles, Benched In Week 14

    Headshot for Joshua Dobbs

    Minnesota Vikings quarterback Joshua Dobbs struggled in the narrow win over the Raiders in Week 14. The signal-caller threw 63 yards off 10-for-23 passing, adding five carries for 21 yards. In all fairness, both teams had trouble getting things going offensively, as the game was scoreless until late. But it's still worth noting Dobbs was benched late in the contest in favor of Nick Mullens, who went 9-for-13 passing for 83 yards. Nevertheless, Dobbs may not be under center in Week 15 against the Bengals. However, neither Dobbs nor Mullens is worth starting, even more so if Justin Jefferson (chest) and Alexander Mattison (ankle) aren't available.

  • Joshua Dobbs Looks To Rebound In Week 14

    Headshot for Joshua Dobbs

    Minnesota Vikings quarterback Joshua Dobbs will look to bounce back in Week 14 after a four-interception performance before the team's BYE week back in Week 12. The former Arizona Cardinal has produced solid numbers in his three appearances with the Vikings before his last outing, as he had found the end zone on the ground in three straight games, and five straight games if you go back to his days in Arizona. The dual-threat can be valued as a low-end QB1/high-end QB2 option against the Raiders defense that ranks 13th against quarterbacks in terms of fantasy production.

  • Vikings Sticking With Joshua Dobbs As Starting Quarterback

    Headshot for Joshua Dobbs

    The Minnesota Vikings are sticking with Joshua Dobbs as their starting quarterback for Week 14 against the Las Vegas Raiders. The Vikings considered a possible change at the position during their bye in Week 13, but with All-Pro receiver Justin Jefferson (hamstring) returning from Injured Reserve this week, Dobbs will finally have the team's top offensive weapon to work with. Nick Mullens and rookie Jaren Hall were Minnesota's other options, so it was always more of a long shot that the Vikes would go away from Dobbs, who needs to cut down on his turnovers if he wants to keep the starting job the rest of this season. The 28-year-old is in a nice bounce-back spot as a QB2 with upside against Vegas this week after throwing four interceptions in the Week 12 loss to the Chicago Bears.
