|6-2, 203||Born: 5-23-1984||College: Auburn||Drafted: Round 7, pick|
Week 14: at Seattle Seahawks
FBG says: Good matchup. Production from Kirk Cousins and this passing offense has tailed off in recent weeks with some very inconsistent outings. A week after over 340 passing yards and three touchdowns, Cousins musters just 201 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions with a season-low 4.6 passing yards per attempt against what has not been just a slightly above average Patriots passing defense. While Cousins completed 72 percent of his passes, he was off the mark on all six deep balls last week--which is surprising since Cousins had been proficient with his deep passes for most of this season. Stefon Diggs felt the pain of those inaccurate deep balls as he could not haul in his typical big play last week while he finished with his lowest reception total since Week 6. Adam Thielen has also cooled off in recent weeks with just one game over 70 receiving yards in his last four outings. Thielen is still a favorite target in this offense though as he went back to leading the team last week along with converting on his only red zone look for his ninth touchdown of the season. Dalvin Cook must also be mentioned here as he is was targeted just as much as Thielen last week to finish with his best receiving game of the season. Cook is a dangerous receiver out of the backfield and could continue to see heavy usage, especially is the Vikings are forced to play catch-up. The Seahawks secondary was burned again last week as they gave up a game of 100 or more receiving yards to an opposing wide receiver for the fourth time in their last five outings. This secondary has played poorly for most of this season while they are missing the presence of elite safety Earl Thomas to prop them up. Since the midway point in the year at Week 8, the Seahawks have given up the seventh-most fantasy points per game (PPR) to wide receivers. Both stud receivers for the Vikings should have no issue getting open this week. Dalvin Cook will have to deal with the tough coverage from Bobby Wagner though, which could prove to be troublesome unless they get Cook in space on quick screens. The primary risk to this Vikings offense will be what has been a strong Seattle pass rush at times. Frank Clark has been the Seahawks' best defensive lineman, but he will have an even matchup with the Vikings' best offensive lineman Riley Reiff. As a unit, the Vikings offensive line has actually been average in pass protection, so if they can hold off the Seahawks defensive pressure they could have a big game this week.
