- Updated: Sunday, June 23rd


In addition to viewing our 2019 Fantasy Football Projections by position, we will post our preseason projections per team.

Below you will find our 2019 fantasy football projections for the Minnesota Vikings.

QUARTERBACKS

PlayerAtt.Comp.YardsTDINTRushYardsTDPoints
Kirk Cousins531.5369.43933.126.3110.943.1127.11.4261.87
After three consecutive QB8 (or better) finishes, Cousins finished 2018 as fantasy's QB13 in his first season with the Vikings. Passing volume could take a hit in 2019 as the Vikings implement a run-first approach. With Kevin Stefanski taking over as interim OC in the final three games, the Vikings ran the ball on 47.98% of their plays (compared to a season-long ratio of 35.59%).

RUNNING BACKS

PlayerAtt.YardsTDRec.YardsTDPoints
Dalvin Cook256.61193.27.0646.7359.61.63207.42
Through two seasons, Cook has missed more games (17) than he's played in (15). When he's been on the field, however, he's been efficient -- 4.68 yards per carry -- despite a terrible offensive line. If Cook is able to stay healthy, the team's investment in their interior offensive line this offseason and run-first approach could help lead to a big season for Minnesota's featured back.
Alexander Mattison72.2317.71.8112.994.20.2653.61
Given Cook's durability track record, there's a decent chance that Mattison sees a sizable workload in a game or two (or more).
Mike Boone29.1125.10.440.96.50.0215.92
C.J. Ham6.511.70.0710.783.50.3211.86

WIDE RECEIVERS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Adam Thielen90.51113.26.116.548.80.07153.28
Thielen reached the 100-yard mark in the first eight games of the season as he posted career highs across the board -- receptions (113), yards (1,373) and touchdowns (nine). Thielen will look to finish as a WR1 (top 12) for a third consecutive season.
Stefon Diggs83.69537.5211.965.50.12147.69
Like Thielen, Diggs set career highs by converting 102-of-149 targets into 1,021 yards and nine touchdowns and added 62 rushing yards. After missing multiple games in each of his first three NFL seasons, Diggs also played a career-high 15 games last year and finished as a top-12 fantasy wide receiver (10th in PPR formats).
Chad Beebe30.6309.11.2200038.23

TIGHT ENDS

PlayerRec.YardsTDRushYardsTDPoints
Kyle Rudolph49.7487.15.0900079.25
Rudolph had a four-year low in touchdowns (four), but he still finished as fantasy's TE9 (TE7 in PPR) last season as his 64 receptions and 634 yards were both the second-most of his career. With the addition of rookie Irv Smith Jr. to the position room, Rudolph's target share may dip year over year, but he could also have more red zone success.
Irv Smith25.3263.11.5200035.43
Tyler Conklin3.846.40.150005.54
David Morgan2.319.30.140002.77
