Week 11: vs Los Angeles Rams
All WR vs LAR
FBG says: Tough matchup. Case Keenum has been riding high over his last two games at the helm of this Vikings passing offense. Last week was one of Keenum's best games this season as he racked up 304 passing yards and a career-high four touchdowns. He looked great right out of the gate with three touchdowns in the first half, but Keenum fizzled as the game went on, throwing two bad interceptions on back to back drives. Keenum now has at least one interception in four straight games. Turnovers have been a problem for him throughout his career, so this is something to watch as Keenum continues to fight for his starting job with Teddy Bridgewater lurking on the bench. The Vikings receivers could not be happier with Keenum right now though, as the duo of Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen have racked up the fantasy points this season. Diggs had a better outing last week with 78 yards and a touchdown after a stinker in Week 8. Thielen continues to dominate on a weekly basis as he hauled in a season-high 166 yards and a touchdown last week. Thielen is the fourth best fantasy receiver this season and one of the most consistent contributors you will find on a weekly basis.
Rams passing defense has been tough on opposing offenses all season long as they rank within the top-10 in most pass defense categories, culminating to a #2 overall ranking against the pass using DVOA. They have been on fire as of late, racking up eight sacks, four fumble recoveries, and five interceptions over their last three games. Over that span, the Rams are allowing the third-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks. On the season, only one quarterback has exceeded 300 passing yards against them, and that was Brian Hoyer in the rather fluky Week 3 shootout against San Francisco. The Rams did allow 111 receiving yards to DeAndre Hopkins last week, but that is tough to prevent when a receiver is force-fed 14 targets like he was. Rams cornerback Kayvon Webster actually did a decent job against Hopkins on the majority of the snaps though as Hopkins had just a 50% catch rate. The Rams defense as a whole was all over the field last week as they had a whopping 10 passes defended between eight separate players. This week, it looks like Webster will match up with Laquon Treadwell three-receiver sets, with some time against both Diggs and Thielen on the right side. Adam Thielen actually should draw a relatively favorable matchup for easy catches underneath against Nickell Robey-Coleman out of the slot, as Robey-Coleman is allowing a 64% catch rate on the season. Both Rams safeties, however, have been playing very well this season--so big plays should come at a premium here, which is something the Vikings have relied on in the passing game this season.
