Week 15: at Minnesota Vikings

All WR vs MIN

FBG says: Tough matchup. Andy Dalton remains a solid NFL quarterback, but his fantasy prospects are rarely great. He's generally dependent upon A.J. Green's brilliance and heaps of red zone opportunity; when Green is plastered all day or the offense struggles, this is an exceptionally limited passing game. Dalton hasn't reached 235 yards in any of his last 4 games, and he's only topped the number 4 times all season. Mired behind a poor pass-blocking line, and without a dynamic downfield weapon beyond Green, Dalton looks like a weekly fantasy QB2 with tightly-capped upside. Luckily for him, Green is good enough to singlehandedly turn a blah passing day into a worthwhile one; he's always an upper-tier fantasy WR1, and when the matchup looks conducive, Dalton typically joins him as in intriguing QB1/2 stack play. We just don't get those fireworks very often. The Vikings boast a truly stout pass defense, one that's allowed just 3 of their 13 opponents to top 250 yards through the air. They're giving up just 5.5 net yards per attempt, third-best in the NFL, and only 0.92 touchdowns per game (second-best). Shutdown cornerback Xavier Rhodes continues to harangue opposing WR1s; he played the lead role in neutralizing Julio Jones (just 2 receptions for 24 yards) in Week 13. Still, they've been beaten soundly in recent weeks by the likes of Robert Woods (8 for 81), Cooper Kupp (6 for 64), and Marvin Jones (6 for 109 and 2 touchdowns). All told, this remains one of the league's better pass defenses, one that's not as prohibitive against WR1s as their reputation suggests but fully capable of holding an overall passing game down.
