Vikings' Latavius Murray: Scores sixth rushing touchdown
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Murray rushed 20 times for 76 yards and a touchdown while adding a 28-yard catch on his lone target in Sunday's 34-7 drubbing of the Bengals.

Murray got the scoring started with a one-yard plunge in the first quarter and was clearly the go-to rushing option over Jerick McKinnon (nine carries for 24 yards). While McKinnon made his mark with over 100 yards as a receiver, Murray remains the better bet for short-yardage scores. The former Oakland running back now has six rushing touchdowns in his past eight games.

Vikings' Jerick McKinnon: Tops 100 receiving yards in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McKinnon rushed nine times for 24 yards and added seven catches for 114 yards on eight targets in Sunday's 34-7 win over the Bengals.

While McKinnon was outplayed by Latavius Murray on the ground, he led his team in both catches and receiving yards. Both members of this running back duo have provided strong fantasy value since Dalvin Cook tore his ACL in Week 4, but it's a bit worrying that McKinnon hasn't topped 50 yards on the ground in his past eight games.

Vikings' Stefon Diggs: Finds paydirt in Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diggs caught five of six targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-7 win over the Bengals.

Diggs did most of his work near the line of scrimmage, with the exception of a 20-yard touchdown in the second quarter. That trip to the end zone was only his second since Week 3, as Diggs has clearly been eclipsed by Adam Thielen on the wide receiver depth chart. The third-year man out of Maryland has beefed up his PPR value over the past two weeks, though, snagging 11 throws in that span.

Vikings' Kyle Rudolph: Finds paydirt while playing through injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rudolph (ankle) caught both of his targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-7 win over the Bengals.

Rudolph was listed as doubtful heading into this contest and clearly operated at less than 100 percent. Nonetheless, the red-zone reindeer was able to score his fifth touchdown in four weeks on a one-yard reception early in the fourth quarter. Rudolph's nose for the end zone makes him an appealing play down the stretch, but owners planning on utilizing the tight end for Saturday's divisional clash in Green Bay should monitor his health throughout the week.

Vikings' Case Keenum: Just three incompletions in dominant win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Keenum completed 20 of 23 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns while adding a 20-yard rush in Sunday's 34-7 victory over the Bengals.

Keenum was accurate and efficient, misfiring on just three passes while throwing touchdown passes from 20 yards and one yard out to Stefon Diggs and Kyle Rudolph, respectively. He was replaced by Teddy Bridgewater after the Rudolph score gave Minnesota a 34-0 lead, but there's no quarterback controversy here. Any inkling of such a narrative was put to rest when Bridgewater promptly threw an interception on his first passing attempt.
