Week 15: at Los Angeles Chargers

All WR vs LAC

FBG says: Tough matchup. Even without Adam Thielen, one of the league's top wide receivers, the Minnesota Vikings have continued to field one of the league's most efficient passing attacks. The Vikings rarely throw the ball, attempting the fourth-fewest passes in the NFL, but when they do, they utilize play-action at one of the highest-rates in the NFL, which bodes extremely well for their efficiency totals. Kirk Cousins' impressive performance this season has been a driving force behind the Vikings' improved performance through the air, even in the absence of one of their top-two pass-catchers. Without Adam Thielen, who has missed the better part of Minnesota's last seven games due to a hamstring injury, Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph, and Irv Smith, Jr. have all seen increased roles in the team's passing attack. Diggs leads the way as the top producer of the bunch, and with Thielen's status in question once again here in Week 15, Diggs should command the most targets of anyone on the team. If Thielen returns to action, his presence will bode well for the unit's cumulative production, but on an individual level, he would eat into every other pass-catcher's volume. The Los Angeles Chargers defense has faced the lowest passing volume of any team in the NFL while permitting the fourth-fewest passing yardage in the league. However, the unit's efficiency metrics, including their 6.2 net yards per attempt allowed, which ranks 16th in the league, are not as impressive. Along the defensive line, the Chargers field two top-tier pass rushers with Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram on the edges. Bosa has 10.5 sacks on the season already, which ranks 7th in the NFL through 13 games. Additionally, the Chargers' already strong secondary received a boost a few weeks ago with the return of utility defensive back Derwin James. James can play on the outside at cornerback, inside at slot cornerback, and at the back-end of the defense at safety, making his value to the team's pass defense far greater than what may show up on the stat sheet. The Chargers already fielded a strong secondary, with Casey Heyward and Desmond King locking down the outside, and third-year safety Rayshawn Jenkins making massive improvements in coverage this season. Overall, the Chargers have only allowed a single 100-yard receiver on the season, and the return of Derwin James to the fold will only make it harder on all future pass-catchers to join the list of one. The Vikings' highly-efficient passing attack will need to post one of its strongest days this weekend if they have any hope of picking apart the Chargers through the air.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs GB (2 / 1 / 61 / 0 rec)

If you are only going to get a single reception in a game, you might as well take it for 61 yards and set up a 1st and goal situation for the offense. Beebe had 2 targets this week but only had 1 catch. He made the most of his catch across the middle when he turned it up field and took it 61 yards down field to the Green Bay 3-yard line. Beebe had a good preseason but has not factored into the Viking offense in the first 2 weeks outside of this play. Look for his usage to go up until Doctson takes the field later this year.
