Fantasy Football Strength of Schedule: Minnesota Vikings

Fantasy football strength of schedules help fantasy owners determine which teams and players have favorable (or unfavorable) schedules for the 2020 NFL season.

Based on each team's scheduled opponents through Week 16, which is the championship round in most fantasy leagues, we have tallied the average fantasy points allowed by each of their opponents to the position.

While strength of schedule should not be the sole factor in determining who to draft/add, it could help potentially break a tie between two players that you may view as comparable.

Fantasy SOS by positions:

In addition to breaking down fantasy football strengths of schedule by position, we have compiled SOS pages by team so you can see a week-to-week breakdown of their schedules.

Minnesota Vikings Fantasy Football SOS: QBs

For Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings quarterbacks, the table below lists their week-to-week fantasy matchups.

The average PPG is equal to the fantasy points allowed by defenses to opposing quarterbacks last season. The lower the rank, the more favorable the matchup.

In other words, a rank of 1 means that the opposing defense allowed the most fantasy points to the position last season. A rank of 32 means that the opposing defense allowed the fewest.
