  • Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Sees limited targets

    Rudolph recorded three receptions for 23 yards across 51 offensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Dolphins.

    Rudolph continues to see limited targets this season as he now has just eight receptions for 68 yards over the past three games. It could be more of the same for the veteran next week against the Lions, who have only allowed five touchdowns to tight ends all season.

  • Vikings' Dan Bailey: Perfect showing against Miami

    Bailey converted both of his field goals and all five of his extra-point attempts during Sunday's 41-17 victory over Miami.

    Bailey entered Sunday's game struggling of late, missing four of his last six field goals. The 30-year-old veteran has converted just 72 percent of his kicks, making him hard to trust in fantasy formats.

  • Vikings' Danielle Hunter: Adds two sacks

    Hunter recorded five tackles (four solo) and two sacks in Sunday's 41-17 win over the Dolphins.

    The Vikings sacked Ryan Tannehill nine times on their way to a victory, and Hunter contributed two of them. The 24-year-old is now second in the NFL with 14.5 sacks, three of which have come in the last two games.

  • Vikings' Anthony Barr: Two-sack performance

    Barr recorded a team-high seven tackles (five solo) and two sacks in Sunday's 41-17 win over the Dolphins.

    Barr followed up with his first sack of the season in Week 14 with two more against the Dolphins, as the Vikings sacked Ryan Tannehill a whopping nine times. Barr will look to continue his sack streak against the Lions on Sunday.

  • Vikings' Laquon Treadwell: No catches in Week 15

    Treadwell failed to catch his lone target during Sunday's 41-17 win over the Dolphins.

    Week 15 wasn't too kind to Treadwell, as he finished without a reception for the first time in 2018. Granted, Kirk Cousins only completed 14 passes, but depth receiver Aldrick Robinson was able to finish with two catches for 44 yards and score despite playing seven fewer snaps than Treadwell. The third-year wideout will look to bounce back against the Lions on Sunday.

  • Vikings' Tyler Conklin: Posts career bests against Miami

    Conklin caught two of three targets or 53 yards in Sunday's 41-17 win over the Dolphins.

    Conklin recorded career highs in receptions and yards on his way to leading the Vikings in receiving. His biggest gain went for 33 yards on a play-action fake as Kirk Cousins found Conklin near the left sideline. It remains to be seen if Minnesota's change at offensive coordinator contributed to Conklin's increased involvement, though this was a positive sign for the rookie.

  • Vikings' Aldrick Robinson: Hauls in touchdown pass

    Robinson recorded two catches on two targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 41-17 win over the Dolphins.

    Robinson was effective during his 15 offensive snaps, as his 44 receiving yards ended up being a season high for the veteran. This came despite quarterback Kirk Cousins completing just 14 passes in Sunday's route. Robinson has just 17 catches on the year, though five of them have gone for touchdowns.

  • Vikings' Latavius Murray: Racks up 15 carries in blowout

    Murray rushed 15 times for 68 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 41-17 win over Miami. He wasn't targeted in the passing game.

    Murray scored Minnesota's third touchdown of the first quarter courtesy of an 18-yard run, handing his team a 21-0 lead. Playing from ahead throughout, the Vikings gave 15 carries to Murray and 19 to Dalvin Cook. Cook was the much more explosive running back with 136 rushing yards and two touchdowns, so Murray's owners will need to hope that Minnesota races out to a similar early lead against the Lions in Week 16 for Murray to have a realistic shot of replicating this performance.

  • Vikings' Adam Thielen: Disappoints in blowout win

    Thielen hauled in both of his targets for 19 yards in Sunday's 41-17 win over Miami.

    After eclipsing 100 receiving yards in eight consecutive games to start the season, Thielen has done so only once over the past six, coming up short of 30 yards three times. Despite his recent decline in production, it will be tough to take Thielen out of the lineup against the Lions in Week 16, considering his robust totals of 105 catches for 1,255 yards and nine touchdowns this season.

  • Vikings' Stefon Diggs: Gets seventh receiving score

    Diggs caught four of seven targets for 49 yards and a touchdown while adding a nine-yard carry in Sunday's 41-17 win over the Dolphins.

    Diggs opened the scoring with a 13-yard touchdown just 3:20 into the contest, but he was pretty quiet the rest of the way as quarterback Kirk Cousins threw for just 215 yards. While Diggs has been held below 50 receiving yards twice in the past three games, he preceded this mediocre stretch with 322 yards over the previous three weeks and has four touchdowns over the past six games. Owners who have ridden him this far should continue to stick with Diggs against the Lions in Week 16.

  • Vikings' Kirk Cousins: Low yardage totals continue

    Cousins completed 14 of 21 passes for 215 yards, two touchdowns and an interception while adding seven yards on five carries in Sunday's 41-17 win over Miami.

    Cousins got on a roll early, capping the opening drive with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs. He gave that touchdown back with a pick-six in the second quarter, a play that spurred a 17-0 Dolphins run after the Vikings had raced out to a 21-0 lead. Minnesota responded with a 20-0 run of its own, including a 40-yard Cousins touchdown pass to Aldrick Robinson. With between 201 and 215 yards in each of the past three games and a 4:3 TD:INT over that span, Cousins will be tough to trust against the Lions in Week 16.

  • Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Dominates Dolphins

    Cook rushed for 136 yards and two touchdowns on 19 carries while hauling in one of two targets for 27 yards in Sunday's 41-17 win over the Dolphins.

    Cook got to the edge for a 13-yard rushing score in the first quarter and sliced through Miami's defense for a 21-yard touchdown in the fourth. Minnesota scored just 3:20 in and never relinquished that lead, which led to a run-heavy approach featuring 19 carries for Cook and 15 for Latavius Murray. A similar game script could well unfold in Week 16 against a Lions team that's been mired in a rut offensively, which is great news for owners who have managed to weather Cook's injury issues up to this point.
