The Vikings have everything they need to have an explosive offensive season on their way to the playoffs this season. QB Kirk Cousins has been great since the Vikings signed him for a mega contract, but has not been able to get the team over the hump and deep into the playoffs. And it’s not like Cousins has no one to throw to as he has two of the best receivers in the game. Justin Jefferson set the world on fire in his rookie year and Adam Theilen has been a perennial Pro Bowler over the last couple of seasons. Besides them is their top 10 running game headlined by top 3 running back Dalvin Cook and Alexander Mattison serves as relief when Cook needs a blow. TE Irv Smith is their top tight end now that Kyle Rudoplh is gone and he will be a key part of an incendiary offense..

Minnesota Vikings Depth Chart FAQ

The Minnesota Vikings have been on the cusp of big things over the last few years, but the depth chart never seems to get them over the hump. They traded Stefon Diggs this offseason and got plenty of picks in return. They used one on Justin Jefferson, who will get playing time right off the bat. The same goes for Jeff Gladney as Xavier Rhodes is now gone. For fantasy football, Adam Thielen and Dalvin Cook remain the big targets. Irv Smith will also look to make a jump this season, especially with Minnesota using a lot of two-TE sets.

Do The Vikings Start Any Rookies?

The Vikings will start Jeff Gladney and Justin Jefferson in year one. Given they needed to fill immediate holes and didn’t have a ton of cash to do it, they will turn to the two first-round picks to pick up the slack. The ceiling is high for both.

Do The Vikings Have A Good Offense For Fantasy?

Being more of a run-heavy team, the Vikings do not put up a ton of points, but luckily most of their production is centered on a few players. Dalvin Cook and Adam Thielen are the two big fantasy producers while the tight ends and Jefferson come in as values.

Who Are The Vikings Wide Receivers?

After trading away Stefon Diggs, the Minnesota depth chart has Adam Thielen, Justin Jefferson, Olabisi Johnson, and Tajae Sharpe as their four wide receivers. The depth after Jefferson is not appealing, but they have two quality tight ends.

What Position Is The Strongest On Vikings Depth Chart?

The safety position with Harrison Smith and Anthony Harris should be labeled as the strongest on the depth chart. Smith and Harris are both veteran safeties and will help a young cornerback core.

Who Backs Up Kirk Cousins?

Sean Mannion is the name backing up Kirk Cousins on the Vikings depth chart. This puts some stress on keeping Cousins healthy as Mannion is not a name for leading an NFL offense. They also drafted Nate Stanley.

Who Replaced Stefon Diggs?

Justin Jefferson is the man that is going to be replacing Stefon Diggs in the Vikings offense. Jefferson was one of the top picks in the 2020 NFL Draft and is coming off a big season at LSU.
