New head coach Kevin O’Connell’s Vikings roster has plenty of talent, and this team should be pushing for a playoff spot. Kirk Cousins leads an offense featuring Dalvin Cook, Justin Jefferson, and Adam Thielen, while Irv Smith Jr. and K.J. Osborn are breakout candidates. The defensive roster’s strength is upfront with Za’Darius Smith joining Danielle Hunter in a stout edge-rushing tandem. Harrison Smith and Cameron Dantzler headline the secondary while Eric Kendricks is one of the better inside linebackers in the NFL. This team could be making a leap to the top of the NFC North this season.
