Week 13: vs Dallas Cowboys

All QB vs DAL

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Both of these teams played on Thanksgiving, so they've had an equal amount of time to recover in time for this Thursday night game. Sam Bradford threw a lot of completions at Detroit (31/37) but couldn't find a big scoring play, with 224 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown, despite taking zero sacks. Kyle Rudolph led the team in receiving with 10 targets for 9/64/0 receiving, while Adam Thielen handled 11 targets for 8/53/0 receiving, and Jerick McKinnon was third in receiving with three targets for 3/45/0. Last week was the first game this year that Bradford hasn't thrown at least one TD - but he's only thrown multiple TDs (two) on three occasions this year. Bradford has thrown 248/348 fr 2,415 yards, 12 TDs and three interceptions this season (with 11 rushes for -3 yards). The Cowboy's pass defense was blown up for 449 net yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions (with zero sacks) by Kirk Cousins and company last weekend; two games ago the Dallas pass defense allowed 23/35 for 267 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions (with one sack for -2 yards) to Joe Flacco. They haven't been shutting down the opposition of late - from Week Nine to Week 12 of the 2016 season (over the last four weeks, but includes 14 teams on bye during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), Dallas has averaged 25.1 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (seventh-most in the NFL); and 27.4 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (seventh-most); with 10.9 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (fourth-most). It's pretty easy to score fantasy points on this secondary entering the final weeks of 2016. Advantage, Bradford and the Vikings. Also, the rushing matchup is bad for McKinnon and Matt Asiata, so look for the Vikings to lean on Bradford and his passing arm quite a bit again in this game.

2016 Week 1 vs TEN (18 / 33 / 236 / 0 / 0 pass, 2 / 8 / 0 rush)

We saw why the Vikings went out and sold their souls for Sam Bradford on Sunday, as Shaun Hill certainly didn't scare the Tennessee Titans defense one bit. That meant that the run game was stymied which made it harder for the offense to move the ball. It's not that Hill was bad, because he wasn't. Hill lacks velocity on his throws and didn't seem to be able to stretch the field much either. Multiple times, Hill threw the ball at a defender and was lucky none of them went the other way. The first was on a 3rd and 5 early in the first quarter. The pass was meant for Stefan Diggs, but was thrown inside where the defender was. Another was late in the second quarter when he threw a ball down the middle where there was no receiver, and luckily the ball sailed over the defender as well. Hill didn't do horribly, but he didn't really make a case for himself as a long-term answer.
