Vikings' Laquon Treadwell: Scores TD, but has crucial drops
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Treadwell had two receptions for 23 yards on six targets, including a 14-yard touchdown, in Sunday's tie with Green Bay. However, he had three drops, including one that bounced off his hands and led to an interception.

Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins kept throwing to Treadwell despite his struggles, but he had an awful game and his key drop late in the game that led to an interception will likely impact his playing time going forward - especially with the Vikings signing wide receiver Aldrick Robinson on Monday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Vikings' Dalvin Cook: Cramping behind Week 2 exit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cook classified the hamstring injury he sustained in overtime Sunday in the Vikings' 29-29 tie with the Packers as a cramp, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

It sounds like Cook merely fell victim to the high temperatures at Lambeau Field rather than any sort of injury, so there shouldn't be much concern about the running back's status heading into the Vikings' Week 3 matchup with the Bills. Prior to departing, Cook saw a reduction in volume compared to his Week 1 workload, which was largely a byproduct of the Vikings trailing for most of the day. He finished the contest with 38 yards on 10 carries and added three receptions for 52 yards.

Vikings' Latavius Murray: Finishes overtime period
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray carried four times for 19 yards during Sunday's 29-29 tie with the Packers.

Murray received just two touches during regulation, but he finished the overtime period with a pair of carries to setup a field goal attempt which Daniel Carlson ultimately missed. His involvement increased after Dalvin Cook left with an apparent hamstring injury, though Cook said after the game he was merely dealing with cramps. With this in mind, Murray should once again serve as Cook's backup next week against the Bills, though he could see additional work if the score gets out of hand.

Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Totals 72 yards versus Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudolph totaled 72 receiving yards while hauling in seven of eight targets during Sunday's 29-29 tie with the Packers.

Rudolph finished third on the team in targets and receptions, totaling his highest yardage output since the final week of the 2016 season. He got off to a bit of a slow start to the game, but he saw his usage increase toward the end of regulation and in overtime as he nearly helped his side complete an improbable come-from-behind victory. Despite the presences of Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs as the top options in the passing attack, Rudolph has found a way to produce in both of the first two games of the season. He'll face a favorable matchup next week against the Bills.

Vikings' Adam Thielen: Leads team in receiving versus Packers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thielen caught 12 of 13 targets for 131 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 29-29 tie with the Packers.

Thielen displayed an excellent rapport with quarterback Kirk Cousins in this one, leading the team in targets and receiving yardage while catching all but one pass that was thrown his way. He was rewarded for his efforts with a 22-yard touchdown reception with just 31 seconds left in the fourth quarter, which led to the game-tying two-point conversion by Stefon Diggs. Thielen is off to a tremendous start to the season, totaling 233 yards and a touchdown on 18 receptions through two games. He'll look to keep it rolling in a favorable matchup with the Bills next week.
