What is the value of the Vikings backfield?

Can Dalvin Cook or Latavius Murray be trusted in fantasy? In 2017, the Vikings had the NFL’s 7th ranked rushing attack. Most of this success came without the services of Dalvin Cook, following his ACL tear in Week 4. Coming into 2018, all pundits, writers, fantasy...

Vikings Adam Thielen doesn’t worry about his stats, he wants to win

Vikings Adam Thielen doesn’t worry about his stats, he wants to win

We can be impressed for him. Minnesota Vikings Adam Thielen is on a roll this season, he’s in first place with 58 receptions and 712 receiving yards and has scored four touchdowns. He is doing so well six weeks in to the season that his stats match his season total from a year ago. And while having the number one receiver in the league excites us, none of that matters to him. Thielen spoke to the media on Thursday about the only thing that matters, winning. “I think each player in this locker room wants to win. And sometimes that might sound cliché but it’s the truth. I could care...

Losses = drops in confidence We’ve got our results from this week’s FanPulse polls from all of the NFC North sites along the SB Nation network, and not surprisingly fans are either more or less confident in their teams entering Week 7 action based on how they did in Week 6. As far as the Minnesota Vikings are concerned, their 27-17 victory over the Arizona Cardinals was enough for a slight lift in fans’ spirits, as we now have a full three-quarters of Vikings fans expressing confidence in the direction of the team.

Is Sunday ‘do or die’ for the Vikings?

Is Sunday ‘do or die’ for the Vikings?

I’m going back and forth on this one. After a shaky start that had fans concerned, the Minnesota Vikings seem to have found a small groove with a modest two game winning streak. Yet after six games and a 3-2-1 record, I’m still not sure what to make of this team. Hall of Fame coach (and Mike Zimmer mentor) Bill Parcells has famously said ‘you are what your record says you are’, and that usually gets to the heart of the matter for most teams in the NFL. For the Vikings this year, I don’t know if that phrase applies yet or not. I mean it does, but it kinda doesn’t, because they...

Vikings at Jets Preview: New York! New York?

The Vikings have Jets have both had great games mixed in with a few clunkers in 2018. Which version of each team will we see this Sunday? He is not easy to describe. There is something wrong with his appearance; something displeasing, something downright detestable. I never saw a man I so disliked, and yet I scarce know why. He must be deformed somewhere; he gives a strong feeling of deformity, although I couldn’t specify the point. He’s an extraordinary-looking man, and yet I really can name nothing out of the way. No, sir; I can make no hand of it; I can’t describe him. And it’s...
