Minnesota Vikings NFL Betting

Kirk Cousins is entering the last year of a three-year deal he signed with the Minnesota Vikings prior to the start of the 2018 season. As we saw in Washington, Cousins has been pretty good, but he hasn’t been the great quarterback that teams usually need to win the big one. We saw that on display after Cousins led Minnesota to a shocking upset win over New Orleans in the Wild Card Round, but the Vikings could only muster 147 total yards and seven first downs against San Francisco in the Divisional Round.

Cousins is one of the most accurate quarterbacks in the NFL. He has completed over 69 percent of his passes in each of his two seasons with the Vikes, and he isn’t just checking underneath either. Cousins averaged 8.7 adjusted yards per attempt last season.

However, Minnesota’s style under former offensive coordinator was to rely on the run to set up the pass. Cousins averaged less than 30 pass attempts per game as the Vikings relied on Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison to move the chains. Cook averaged 4.5 YPC and ran for 13 touchdowns in a Pro Bowl season, while Mattison averaged over 4.6 YPC on 100 carries. Four of five starters return on the offensive line, so that ensure this team can still move the chains on the ground.

The Vikings no longer have Stefon Diggs though. Diggs was Minnesota’s only real receiving option last season as Adam Thielen massively underachieved, and he was the one receiver on the roster that could stretch the field. That will put some pressure on former LSU star Justin Jefferson, as he will be asked to immediately fill Diggs’ shoes.

If Irv Smith Jr. takes another step forward in his development, Minnesota will have one of the best tight end tandems in the league. Smith was drafted to be Kyle Rudolph’s heir apparent, but he only caught 36 passes for 311 yards and two touchdowns as a rookie.

Minnesota’s front four had been one of the most intimidating in the NFL the last few seasons. Losing Everson Griffen and Linval Joseph will certainly hurt though. Michael Pierce was signed from Baltimore to mitigate the loss, but Danielle Hunter is the only bonafide standout on this defensive line.

The linebacking corps is intact for one more season. Anthony Barr and Eric Kendricks have both been selected to the Pro Bowl in recent years so this unit should be solid. That will help the unit with the biggest concerns on this team, the secondary.

Xavier Rhodes and Trae Waynes both left the team this offseason, meaning that two first-round picks will have to fill the void at cornerback. Mike Hughes was a 2018 first-round pick that hasn’t played much due to the presence of Rhodes and Waynes, while 2020 first-round pick Jeff Gladney will be immediately thrust into a starting role. Fortunately, the safeties return intact.
